    Welcome to my new and improved website!

    My name is Courtney Murray and I am the owner and photographer of Lovely Lens Photography, LLC. I studied photojournalism and graduated from Cazenovia College in 2012 with a Bachelors in Fine Arts Specialization in Photography. Originally I planned on becoming a photojournalist, but in 2011 I assisted with a wedding and fell in love with wedding photography. Later on in 2011 I was introduced to the art of boudoir photography, now another photo session that I love to do. My passion is photographing people, particularly new families to newborns. I like to call it positive-photojournalism and there is nothing else I would rather do. I love my creative job!

    If you were wondering what happened to my old site, it may still be found at My skills and technique are forever evolving. Although I am proud of my older work, my new style is stronger and having this new site is the best way to showcase my latest work. I hope that you enjoy browsing through my photos!

Historic Gettysburg Train Station Wedding | Belladonna & James | Gettysburg, PA

Belladonna and James were married on October 4th at the historic Gettysburg Train Station  in Gettysburg, PA. The day started out cloudy, but the sunlight and blue sky came out at their closest family and friends were celebrating their wedding. It was the perfect day for this beautiful autumn wedding. The leaves were beginning to turn to vibrant shades of red and yellow and they fell along the rail road tracks. I had been looking forward to their special day since I first heard from Bella a year before and it was wonderful to be able to finally meet this lovely couple. We spoke through e-mail and over the phone because Bella was living all the way in Tennessee before moving to Gettysburg to marry the love of her life. Congratulations, Belladonna and James! It has been such an honor to be a part of your wedding day. I truly enjoyed every moment and all of the thought and love that went into every detail, from the self-uniting ceremony and James’s singing at the ceremony to the unique location and gorgeous flowers. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness.

Riley’s Second Birthday | Family Photographer

Being at Riley’s 2nd birthday party (Monster’s University theme all designed by his talented mom, Jess) was like seeing family again. Last year I had the honor of photographing Jess and Chris’s wedding and their son’s first birthday party. He has gotten so big in just one year and he was fearless on the bouncy castle. I have included a lot of Jess’s decorations because they are so creative and well planned. If you need a kid’s party planner Jess is a perfect person to ask. (Contact me and I would be happy to send along her e-mail). Just wait until you see the cake. 

Everything served was well thought out. Jess and Chris cut out every one of these monster shaped sandwiches for their guests.

Jess also made this game herself for the kids. It was a big hit.

Riley reached over for a cup cam and served all the kids first. One of the cutest things I have ever seen.

Jess made each and every one of these shoes. Jess’s says “mom” on on side and Chris’s shoes say “dad.” Riley’s cute little shoes are right above.
