Sharon & Mike – Engaged! Big Sky Wedding Photographer

We were so excited to photograph Mike and Sharon at one of our favorite places in Montana – Big Sky Resort. (Brides, you have to talk with Margo -Wedding & Event Manager– about getting married here, it is truly amazing)! Mike proposed to Sharon last year during one of their annual trips to Big Sky, MT.  Skiing in Montana has become a big tradition for these two over the past several years.  They are looking forward to their friends and family traveling to Montana for their wedding this summer.  We are too – we love being Big Sky Montana Wedding Photographers!

We met up with Sharon and Mike early in the afternoon on a beautiful blue bird day at Big Sky.  After snapping a few photos in the base area of the ski resort we headed for the lifts.  Lone Peak was looking incredible (as usual!) in so many of the shots.  It is always a little easier for pictures when you have such stunning back drops like the Montana mountains!

We shredded down a couple ski runs and stopped on the side for some more photos.  Overall, we had an absolute blast photographing this wonderful couple’s engagement session in Big Sky, MT.  Thanks Sharon and Mike for a great time – we are looking forward to your wedding this summer at Big Sky Resort!

Courtney & David – Engaged! Whitefish Montana Wedding Photographer

Brooke Peterson Photography photographed a cozy Montana winter engagement session and we are so excited to share it with you!  We had so much fun with these two love birds as we tromped through knee high snow in the frozen MT mountains!  Our great friends Courtney (of 114-West) and David were up for anything and everything during their winter engagement session in Glacier National Park.  These two are stinkin’ gorgeous together, don’t you think!? The first blanket they are snuggled up in is the official Pendleton Glacier National Park blanket, borrowed from David’s parents.  We thought that was super cool.  The morning turned out to be a bit chilly but the blankets helped them stay warm. Overall we could not have asked for a better Montana engagement session – it was snowy and beautiful!

We are so excited to photograph Courtney and David’s wedding later this summer on Coeur d’Alene Lake in Idaho.  It will be a day to remember!  Courtney is one of the most creative girls out there…. there is no doubt her wedding day will be just her and David’s style (yes, David’s too- I am sure we will see some splashes of Green Bay Packer colors here and there)!  We can’t wait to see it all come together!  Their wedding will showcase them in a perfect way, professing their love for one another in a beautiful mountain lake town.

We hope you enjoy these Montana engagement photos as much as we do.  Cheers to staying warm and loving your special someone on this Valentines Day weekend!

Whitefish High School Prom 2014

What an incredible 2014 Whitefish High School Junior Senior Prom!  We had a great time in the beautifully decorated Cooper’s Restaurant watching the students break it down on the dance floor.  Courtney of 114-West made the backdrop come alive with her homemade “poofs”.  All the students looked stunning and were so well dressed.  The theme this year was “Uptown Cabaret” and from the pictures you can see they were all dressed to the nines!  Before the 2014 Whitefish high school prom kicked off all the students participated in the Grand March.  Parents, teachers, friends, and family lined the streets in downtown Whitefish, MT to watch their son or daughter walk to the prom.  Darci from Beargrass Gardens made a gorgeous floral archway for all the couples to walk through as they made their grand entrance.

Brooke Peterson Photography had a wonderful time photographing all the couples, groups, and individual portraits.  We hope you enjoy the 2014 Whitefish Montana High School Senior Prom pictures as much as we do!
