We’ve all seen the meme of the teeny tiny list of “People I Trust to Watch My Dogs” and when you’re trusting someone to not only interact with your dog in new situtations and asking them to capture your dogs personality, the list is even shorter!
I don’t just photograph dogs, I know them. Over the last ten years I’ve photographed thousands of shelter animals and hundreds of client’s dogs. I have spent years honing the craft of photography, but even more important I dedicate dozens of hours every month to ongoing learning about dog behavior. I have worked with dog trainiers, attended seminars, and only practice positive reward based training with my own dogs, and in every one of my sessions.
But, don’t take my word for it, read what my cleints have said about the experience they shared with their beloved dogs & cats.
Very thrilled with the photos and the artwork of my precious doggie and me. These are our family photos!!! Courtney is professional, patient and knows how to get the great photos. She was even very cognizant of my dog’s reactive tendencies to other dogs in the photo setting. I highly recommend CM Bryson Photography. She has the “Dozer” stamp of approval !!

“Courtney did an amazing job with our pups! She really made everything fun and the dogs were comfortable around her immediately. We had a hard time narrowing down our picture choices because everything was so good. Highly recommend.“

“I was beyond thrilled with my photos! The entire process was seamless, from booking to receiving my photo items. Courtney has a remarkable eye, and a very nice way about her when it comes to interacting with the fur babies. Courtney was instrumental in capturing a very special moment between my ailing cat and I. I am so grateful she was able to capture such beautiful images that will be forever with my family! I highly recommend her services!”

“I wasn’t sure how my dog would act but you did so well with having a assortment of treats and toys to make friends with him! I really loved how you try to capture my dog’s personality and not just posed pictures.”
– Kate & Apollo
“Courtney Bryson has the unique ability to get the best out of the people and their pets. I have admired her work for years. She captures the essence of human dog (pet) interaction. Courtney has an uncanny ability to capture through her lens a dog’s personality. Not just that. She seems to get their essence. That which makes them who they are inside and out.“
-Deb & Sweet Potato

"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!"
