  • Courtney was so enthusiastic and easy to communicate with leading up to our engagement session, and was wonderful at helping us relax during the shoot (we're both a little awkward and nervous in front of the camera, and she helped us capture some truly lovely moments!) We, and everyone else, has been swooning over our engagement shots and we are so excited to get to have her do our wedding as well!

  • When my wife and I thought of a photographer for our destination wedding, we didn’t just want to choose from a pool of local artists. We wanted someone that so perfectly would capture the essence of us no matter how far away we’d find them. We happened to stumble upon Courtney’s work on Instagram and fell in love with her unique style. After traveling to Portland for an engagement shoot, we knew she was the perfect person to capture our Puerto Rico wedding. Courtney was amazing at capturing every single detail of our wedding and making us laugh through the process. She traveled thousands of miles to simply make sure that our day was everything we hoped for and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you for giving us memories we’ll never ever forget!

  • Yo- stop right now and book Courtney. You won't regret it. Not only does she produce amazing photos, but you can tell she gives a damn about what she does. She made me feel so comfortable every step of the way and if I could hire her again and again, I would in a heartbeat. She is so down-to-earth but professional at the same time. I felt like I was working with a friend, who happened to be a bomb ass photographer. She's dedicated, creative, and really knows what she's doing behind the camera. Hire Courtney, then print those photos because they'll be SO good.

  • We got to work with both Hellen and her husband. Very friendly and easy to work with. It was raining outside (where we wanted photos) and they came prepped with these adorable umbrellas to still be able to get the photos we wanted. They went with the flow of our busy wedding day and made the day a blast, and very memorable.

  • Courtney Hellen Photography did a really wonderful job of making our day feel really special and easy. My wife and I have had trouble with photographers in the past being hard to work with, and hard to get in touch with. We had absolutely no problems working with Courtney, she and her partner were both extremely friendly and easy to work with, they work well together and know what they are doing. We were very pleased with the final product and without a doubt they made our very special day even more special.

  • Courtney's devotion and knack for capturing the realness and uniqueness of relationships was so apparent from the moment our engagement shoot started. She made us feel so relaxed. For two people who typically don't like their photos taken, she made it a fun and memorable experience. Her style of photography and photo editing is really special and emotive. If we had to pick again, Courtney would be the top choice every single time. We cannot wait for her to be a part of our big day.

  • Courtney is amazing as a person, an artist, and a photographer. I loved how she had a great sense of humor, and interacted with us, but was also very much in the background while taking beautiful and candid photos of us and our families during a day that we both treasure now and will continue to for forever thanks to her photos.

  • Simply put, we would not have been able to have the wedding of our dreams without Courtney’s willingness to go above and beyond for her clients. Having a destination wedding adds a whole new level of stress when it comes to planning but Courtney made it feel easy. Her thoughtfulness and skill truly shine through in her work and her dedication. Our photos absolutely, positively blew us away! We absolutely LOVED the use of digital, film and even a few polaroids to capture moments from the day. But when I look back on the whole process, I remember more than just the final result — Courtney’s kindness, excitement and encouragement are what stands out when we look back on our special day. We are so deeply thankful for all the hard work she put in to make our elopement the best day of our entire lives.

  • Courtney was AMAZING!! Showed up earlier than we had planned, helped us get organized and was flawless when moving to the next set of pictures that had to be done!!! I got so many compliments after the wedding about how amazing Courtney and her husband were. We went on honeymoon right after the wedding and not even 24 hours later we received a sample photo. Overall we are extremely impressed with her work

  • Courtney has a way about her that makes you feel 100% comfortable in front of her camera. She laughs, makes jokes, and has fun creative ideas for each shot. She truly captures the most natural and authentic moments within the photos.

  • Courtney is amazing, she took very natural photos of my husband and I at our wedding while at the same time capturing a nice artistic look. Some of my favorite photos were the ones that were unplanned, just her capturing the moment.

  • Courtney did our engagement and wedding photos -BLEW. MY. MIND. Our engagement photos or the first time we had ever taken professional photos. We were worried they were going to look for us and a Natural but Courtney‘s approach was so perfect for us she really listens to what we wanted and Taylor and our session for engagement photos in the wedding to be exactly what we wanted. She absolutely killed it! We couldn’t be happier with the photos we got from her. She was super easy to work with and really understood what we were getting after. 14/10 will use her incredible services for other photos (she does maternity ones too ☺️)
