Bozeman Engagement Session – Molley & Sterling Engaged!

Bozeman’s weather was really nice to us this year and gave us a really nice long fall! It made us all really ready for the snow to fall, which is a good thing. I never like the snow to come too early! One of my favorite places for a Bozeman Engagement Session in the fall is up at Bridger Bowl Ski Area– just about 20 minutes up the road from Bozeman. The colors up there are beautiful, the sky is huge, and the air is just becoming crisp. Molley and Sterling were on board right away to do their session on the slopes so we went for it. Turns out they bomb down these trails on their skis in the winter, so it all made complete sense! As you can see in the images below, they are absolutely thrilled to be marrying each other! Seriously though, Molley did not stop giggling the entire shoot. They are getting married next spring at the Hart Ranch and we can not wait for their big day. Thanks again you two- & enjoy!

Livingston Engagement Session – Rachel & Jordan Engaged!

The beauty of my job is that I really get to know my couples and their story- what makes them laugh, what they like to do together, how they fell in love, details of the proposal, etc.  Every couple of ours is SO different and I love that! We get to know so many different people during such a fun part of their lives. The relationship starts with the first call or email and lasts (at least) until our final package is delivered. Sometimes that can be a 12-18 month period! Engagement sessions can be so important because we get to know what a couple is like in front of the camera and they get to know what we are like behind the camera! It’s a really good ice breaker prior to the high emotion wedding days.

I love these two! Right away Rachel knew for sure they wanted to do their shoot on the banks of a river. Jordan loves to fish, and maybe doesn’t like taking pictures all that much (I don’t blame him!). Rachel knew he’d be game for a fly-fishing session so we went to the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley, put on some highly stylish (ahem, Rachel!) waders and went for it. Although there weren’t any trouts on the line at the end of the evening, Jordan knew he caught the most beautiful one he could ever imagine. ;) Then we found a glorious lookout onto the valley for sunset.  Rachel and Jordan’s Livingston engagement session could not have been better! I can’t wait for your wedding in Red Lodge next June. Thanks you two, enjoy your images!

Bozeman Montana Wedding Photographers – Beth & Kramer 6.4.16

Beth and Kramer kicked off our 2016 summer wedding season as Bozeman Montana Wedding Photographers on the best note ever!  We were so delighted when these two asked us to photograph their wedding day because we have done two other family weddings (on Kramer’s side) and loved them. By the time Beth and Kramer’s wedding came around, everyone knew how to be so natural in front of our cameras. ;) Beth and Kramer decided to get married one week after they graduated from medical school in Washington and one week before they needed to be in Vermont for residency. Why not have a wedding day halfway through their drive from Washington to Vermont, right?! They were married at the picturesque Big Yellow Barn in Bozeman, Montana and it was an absolutely gorgeous day- just the kind of day any Montana bride would dream about with clear, big blue skies.  Thank you for having us play a role in your big day Beth and Kramer! It was a privilege to capture your bubbly, adventurous, generous and loving spirits.  Best of luck on the East Coast and we hope to get you back in Montana soon!

Engagement Photos in Bozeman – Stacey & Taner Engaged!

We were blessed with the most unbelievable April evening in Bozeman for our shoot with Stacey and Taner. All of the surrounding days were pouring buckets, but Friday delivered for us with a cool, sunny evening. Stacey and Taner are getting married this fall (on another gorgeous evening we’re hoping :) ) in Billings, but decided to come up to Bozeman to meet me for their engagement session.  I have to say, these two completely rocked their photoshoot.  It’s definitely not an everyday activity to meet someone in person for the first time and be all natural and comfortable as they proceed to take pictures of you.  I always try to put myself in my clients shoes while I’m photographing them, and I could tell that Stacey was a little nervous (completely normal) but that wore off within 10 camera clicks!  These two were so much fun to hang with for a couple hours- I wouldn’t have wanted my Friday night spent any differently!  Getting to know these two better makes us so excited for their wedding day.

Thanks so much Stacey & Taner.  Enjoy your engagement photos in Bozeman!

Winter Wedding in Montana – Alison & Scott 1.16.16

Roy and I had the opportunity to head back to our old stomping grounds for a beautiful winter wedding in Montana last month.  The town of Whitefish is nothing short of a dream in the winter. I always describe it as the town that lives inside of a snow globe.  It’s so quaint, cute and always has a thick blanket of snow.

We met Alison and Scott out in Seattle last summer for their engagement session. Click here to check that out!  It was exciting to photograph them in a snowy mountain environment after we had captured them on the hot city streets of Seattle!  They were married at the Grouse Mountain Lodge surrounded by family and close friends who traveled from all over.  Alison, with the help of Courtney from 114-West, had every single little detail planned out which allowed the day to take its course so smoothly!  Alison and Scott decided to do a first look prior to walking down the aisle which allowed us to get in lots of portraits before the sun went down (at like 4:45pm in the winter!).  Doing a first look also allowed us the time to drive over to the picturesque Whitefish Lake. Alison looked so graceful as she approached her groom standing on the “beach.” :)

Thanks Alison, Scott, their bridal party & family for braving the snowy conditions in order to capture all the beauty that NW Montana offers in the winter!
