My name is Courtney Winter. I was born in Greensboro NC which is where I call home and attended UNCG. I moved to Wilmington in 2007 for a management job. I have wanted to start my own company for as long as I have been a mother (15 years) . It took me several years of professional management, organizing, planning, job changes and learning my own way to finally take the leap of faith!!
I started P3 in 2011 with two business partners that unfortunately didn’t hang in there long. P3 was originally only suppose to be an Event Planning company but God had other plans. My first several jobs were face painting gigs, then came a wedding, and last a friend asked me to photograph her wedding. I remember telling her I wasn’t a trained photographer and she kept insisting that I take her pictures. I did and after her wedding in 2012 the P3 came back full circle…Planning, Painting, & Photography! Now I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I adore this community in which we live and even more I love sharing it with you! P3 is where my heart is, aside from my amazing family, and I give all my clients 150%. I do this by never taking on more than one major event or wedding in a weekend to ensure that YOU are the only thing that matters. This I promise to you. I am personable, fun loving, caring, organized and passionate about what I do. I bring 19 years of management experience, 16 years of event planning, 4 years of photography, 8 years of face painting, money saving tips, and communication to the table. While ensuring that you will walk away a satisfied customer and gain a life long friend.
As a hardworking business owner I currently raise my lovely three girls, try my best to be an amazing wife, serve on the board for my girls school, home school two of our girls, volunteer as much as I can to local organizations, and believe in supporting local. I am honored to be celebrating my 5 years in business this August and so happy to add the following to our list of accomplishments;
- Premier face painters for the Pleasure Island Chamber of Commerce for 7 years
- Premier face painters for events at the Battleship for 3 years
- Volunteer our time for Love is Bald, Lump to Laughter, Pretty in Pink, Pink Ribbon Project, Make a Match, Women of Hope, St.Baldrick’s, Make A Wish, & Pink Heals
- Photographed Red Carpet Events for Jeff Gordon, Pink Ribbon, Lump to Laughter, Love is Bald and more
Thank you to everyone who supports P3, refers us, and helps keep this family owned business growing.
