Atlanta & Athens Georgia Equine Photographer

Timeless, classic, artistic

portraits of your horse


To create simply stunning art for your home.

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re not just a horse owner; you’re an equestrian.

You understand the indescribable bond between a person and their horse.


Does your heart still skip a beat when you see your horse fly across the field?

The messy stalls, the early morning rides, and the countless hours spent grooming and bonding. 

It’s a connection that words struggle to capture, a silent language that only we understand.

For those who have experienced it, it’s a love affair like no other.

Every horse has a story, and their presence in your life is a significant chapter in your own narrative. Signature equine sessions tell that story — your story.

Your horse doesn’t have to be a champion, and your barn doesn’t need to be spotless to book a session.

By decorating your home with custom, personal equine art, you’re not just adding to your décor; you’re making a profound statement about who you are and what you hold dear.



CM Bryson, Atlanta's luxury equine photographer, specializes in interior art work for your home featured fine art photographs of your horse.

“Courtney is a skilled photographer and very professional. She is kind, empathetic, timely, and willing to work with your schedule. There is absolutely no doubt that she has a passion for her line of work! For those who are specifically looking to have images made into beautiful artwork and are willing to invest in the quality, I would HIGHLY recommend!”

"Such a wonderful experience! A true professional with has an exceptional knack for animals! Totally recommend!"

Trish & Hazel

"I am thrilled with the outcome! This will get a very special place in my home."

Krista & Scarlett

"I had such a great experience with Courtney! She ensured not only that the pups were prepared but that I was also. I had a detailed checklist of what to do to prepare before the shoot. From how far in advance to get the groomed/bathed to Coloring/cutting my hair in advance (if needed), what color and texture of clothing to wear for the best results, recommended collars for the pups. I think she had everything covered. Courtney was very patient with all of us :). If you are looking for photos with your furry family, I would absolutely recommend her!"

Liz, Kaos, & Kali

"We were lucky enough to attend the Love Barks event at Pet Pleasers Bakery in Gainesville, and Courtney captured some amazing photos of my dogs. It can be challenging to get them to sit still, but Courtney is a pro! Everything was set up perfectly to maximize our time there, and she is so fast with that camera. She was even able to Photoshop my hand + the leash out of several of the photos. It was a great experience, and we look forward to doing another session with Courtney soon!"

Georgia horse photographer Courtney Bryson knows horse girls, because she's been one for more than 30 years.

Hey Horse Girl!

I’m Courtney – horse mom, professional pet photographer, animal rescuer, & official crazy animal lady of the family. Welcome! Here hay in your bra is a badge of honor, and the sweet scent of tack and fly spray is the perfume of choice.

I know how important your horse is to you. In that photo over there ← That’s me & the equine love of my life. Ginger was the longest realtionship of my life – more than 30 years. 

I also know how easy it is to keep putting off the photos. To wait until you loose 20 pounds or when you have time to get a real haircut or when you have the right clothes. And I almost waited too late. 

Ginger passed just 2 months after I finally worked up the nerve to have our photos taken – and now these are some of my most precious posessions. 

Please don’t wait.
