I grew up with two photographers for parents, so choosing a photographer for my wedding was difficult...I had high standards! The photographer and the pictures were so important to me! Once the wedding is over, they're all you have to look back on! So, I was a little nervous first meeting Aaron. I loved his pictures online, but you just never know! But, boy, oh boy, were my fears set aside! Aaron is so easy going and friendly! When we were taking our engagement pictures, we felt like we were just hanging out with our friend! He listened to everything I liked and wanted and he delivered exactly that! He was on time, professional, respectful, FUN... My family and friends on our wedding day loved him and raved about him! I get so many compliments on our wedding photos - I've already recommended him to two more girlfriends getting married! Aaron gives you a wonderful experience, not just a photographer. We were so pleased with what we got for what we spent, too; Aaron gave us too many pictures to choose from! I couldn't say enough good things about him. We are so, so very happy we chose him to represent us on our day!

My husband and I chose Aaron as our photographer before we booked anything else for our wedding. We met with him and instantly felt we had found the photographer for us. He was so friendly and welcoming during our first meeting. We did not feel pressured to make a decision, he made it clear that we should feel, without a doubt, that we were making the right choice for us. His photographs are timeless and unique, we were so happy with how well he captured the feel of our wedding day, the spirit of our guests and the unique details that we spent months creating. I heard from multiple guests how impressed they were with Aaron. He made sure to capture all the important moments of our ceremony and reception without interrupting the flow of the day. Now, 3 months after our wedding we have our marriage, our rings, and our photographs. We couldn't be more thrilled with how our photos turned out and we would definitely recommend Aaron to anyone who is looking for heartfelt photographs to remember their wedding.

Aaron loves what he does and it shows in every picture. He's creative without being weird. Professional without being uptight. He did our engagement, wedding and family photos. They all came out perfectly. Artful, unique, interesting photos that make it very hard to choose which ones to print because they are all so good. We're going to continue to update our life events with Aaron from here on out. He makes you feel really relaxed and during our wedding he was so unobtrusive we hardly noticed him. He blends right in when he needs to and somehow gets these amazing close-up shots when you didn't even know he was in the room. Our friends liked our photos so much they decided to use him for their engagement and wedding photos too. He is super likable. Funny and smart. Good conversationalist. He really seems to care about getting to know you and understand what you want. He's also great with kids. My wife and I wish we had a single friend to hook him up with. He's just that good of a dude.

When we got our wedding pictures back, I was struck by two things. First, they were absolutely beautiful, more truly lovely pictures than I ever expected to have. Second, I couldn't believe all of the little moments that Aaron was able to capture when I had no idea that he was anywhere in the vicinity. Aaron's a fun, friendly, professional photographer. He showed up when he said he would, and he was willing to work with us on packages, times, etc. I would (and have) recommended him to friends in a heartbeat.

The other reviews on Aaron totally capture how wonderful he is, but I have to add one more. Looking at Aaron's website it's easy to see how great his work is. But I am so much more impressed now that I have seen the pictures he took of our wedding day. Of me and my husband saying our vows, of our family and friends, of all the details that we put together. The pictures we have of our day couldn't have been better or more beautiful. He captured the special moments and made us look amazing! He would be modest and say we looked amazing and he just captured it, but seriously, he made us look like awesome versions of ourselves.
Planning our wedding was stressful because we don't have a lot of money. We needed to stick to our budget, but everyone we talked to confirmed that photography is not the place to do that. I've muttered to myself and anyone who will listen many times, I am so glad that we were able to book Aaron and that we didn't try to cut corners with photography. Aaron's prices are great, and an even better value considering the amazing work he does.
Lastly and a seriously important part I didn't understand before getting married, Aaron is really fun to be around. He was invisible most of the time, somehow taking hundreds of pictures without ever being in the way. He had suggestions to give, but never overbearing. The experience was not like the past weddings I've been in, with the photographer sticking out and saying awkward things to get through the bridal party and family posed shots.
I can't recommend Aaron enough!

Aaron did our wedding and was incredible. He captured every moment I was hoping he would and I hardly even noticed he was doing it! He was so much fun and helped everyone feel relaxed. Our wedding celebration was almost over a year ago and people always compliment us on our photos. Aaron happened to be at our engagement session also and was just a really great guy to have around. His professionalism and eye for a great picture are an amazing combination. I will always keep him in mind for our photography.

Aaron Courter was professional, personable, genuine, open and had the patience of a saint for anything requested from our family before, during and after the wedding day.
Engagement photos shot in multiple locations, and a destination wedding in Columbus, Ohio. (That was our first request.) His flexibility and calmness definitely put the bride and groom at ease for some absolutely fantastic memories captured in digital photography the day of the wedding.
Our daughter could not have her dogs in the wedding...solution: THIRTY photos of two rambunctious canines posing for table number photos. All unique and different with a creativity rating of 11 out of 10!
Aaron captured all of the details in the work and planning that took place during that year of preparation for the wedding. The day, for my husband and I, went by in a flash. Over time that day will be cataloged in the distant memory of our minds, but I am confident that revisiting Aaron's photography work will bring back the rush of emotions filled with joy of the day my daughter married the love of her life.
Allow Aaron to work with you side by side in your wedding photography and you will be amazed at what he sees from his side of the camera lens!
Other photography work he has shared with our family include Senior portraits of our younger daughter (also awesome!) and family reunion portraits capturing enlightened hearts and smiles of every family member showcasing individual personality and flare.
We will not hesitate is calling him again in the future.

Aaron is AMAZING. We first fell in love with his work (looking at his website and his work from our friends wedding). Next we did our engagement photos with him and he was just really fun to work with, made us feel very comfortable and the pictures turned out wonderful. Lastly, of course we used him for our wedding and again I have nothing but praises. Our original site where we were going to take pictures had to change last minute and he showed up early and scouted out a even better outdoor space for us and yes the picture are absolutely incredible and beautiful! We hope and plan to use in the future for family photos as it begins to grow.

Aaron is very professional. He is a funny guy and he knows how to take amazing pictures.
Authentic, Creative, and Really, Really Fun
Hello, my name is Aaron. I live in Portland, Oregon.
To me, photography is more than just using a camera, it's creating a personal experience. When that experience includes 1.2 megatons of happiness and dorky comments (included with every photo session), ridiculously good images happen.
