Courtney Utley Photography is a Central Arkansas based photography studio focused on capturing and documenting true moments in life. We specialize in newborn, family, portrait and wedding photography. 

Having started professionally in 2009 we have shot hundreds of weddings and countless portrait and newborn sessions. Aaron, teamed up with me in 2010 to not only second shoot but to also incorporate his DJ services into the wedding packages. As a team, we rely on our communication skills as well as our overall knowledge of equipment to create flawless wedding experiences.  It has become a vital part of our overall wedding success. We were married in 2016 and welcomed our first child together in the fall of 2017! Olivia is the light of our lives and as "cliche" as it sounds she really does complete me. Everything I do is for her in an effort to make her life easier and more fun! She often goes to work with me and "helps" me put props away. It ends up being more of a mess but I wouldn't have it any other way! 


I have a Bachelors degree from the University of Central Arkansas and I continue my education each year through PPA workshops, seminars and online courses. My passion has turned to newborn photography. Grow with me packages have become a huge part of the studio. With these packages clients are in the studio every three months documenting the changes in their children's lives. From belly to baby to high school to wedding day we have you covered!


The mission for Courtney Utley Photography is simply "light, vision, art". These three things separately cannot complete an image. But together they make breathtaking works of art that will be a part of your family for years.
