Little Rose Photography | Iowa based wedding, and family photographer, adventuring worldwide

Hi, I'm Courtney!

Your all in candid-photo-obsessed photographer

Crafting a truly memorable photography experience involves a lot more than just taking photos. I'm deeply committed to being a significant part of your journey. My role as a photographer extends beyond capturing timeless images; it's about elevating your overall experience, making it as stress-free as possible.

From dreamy destination weddings to cherished family moments, I specialize in turning significant moments into hassle-free memories. Building lasting relationships with my clients is a priority. I invest time in getting to know YOU, fostering trust through effective communication.

I understand that life is unpredictable, and sometimes kids can be kids, family dynamics may test our patience, or small things like a missing bobby pin or deodorant can cause concern. That's why I step into the role of your closest confidant during our sessions, equipped with a bag full of snacks for the little ones during family shoots or essential items like bobby pins and hairspray for your wedding day.

From our initial phone call and well beyond the delivery of your final images, I want you to feel like you're in the best hands. Whether it's your wedding day, a cherished family gathering, or simply the need for professional headshots, I want you to understand that our time together isn't just about the photographs—it's about building connections.

I'm committed to being there for every significant milestone, both big and small, capturing the images that will adorn your walls. Each photo I take represents a pivotal moment in your life, and I consider it a privilege to preserve those details as they unfold, allowing you to hold onto these precious moments forever.
