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!

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!

Bozeman Portrait Photographers – The Grandits Family

Have you ever been up Hyalite Canyon?  It’s a great place to recreate in the summer and in the winter, from paddle boarding to back country skiing, they pretty much have it all.  It’s also a very photogenic area. :) Stephanie contacted me just a couple weeks before Christmas seeing if I had any spots open for a last minute shoot for her Christmas card.  I am so glad I did, because it was wonderful meeting these two!  It was a chilly day to be out and the wet snow just kept coming down and so I was very thankful for Stephanie and John’s positive and cheery attitudes.  I think they ended up getting a pretty suitable Christmas card photo too. Thanks Stephanie & John for picking us to be your Bozeman Portrait Photographers – we hope you are enjoying your images!

Big Sky Photographer – The Scheidt Family

Family portrait sessions in the winter can be so much fun!  We were blessed with the perfect combo of above freezing weather, fresh snow and a beautiful backdrop.  The Scheidt family travels to a ski destination from Illinois every year and Big Sky has become one of their favorites.  I was so excited to workout my schedule so I could go be a Big Sky photographer for a day!  I love an excuse to make the quick 45-minute drive through the canyon and up to one of the most glorious places.  What a great idea to plan a photoshoot while you are on vacation with your whole family in a winter wonderland environment!

If you are reading this and have never made a trip out to Big Sky, Montana, you gotta go!  It is certainly one of my favorite ski destinations with no lift lines, tons of terrain for all levels (coined “The Biggest Skiing in America”), and you can ski off the very tip-top of the mountain, Lone Peak.  I should probably mention that it’s where Roy and I got married so my opinion may be a little biased. ;)

Bozeman Engagement Photography – Sammi & Jeremy Engaged!

My best friend is engaged!  Sammi got engaged to a man who simply adores her.  How could he not? She is adorable!  These two drove over from Missoula, Montana for their Bozeman engagement photography shoot this month.  Sammi’s dream was to ice skate during her shoot- so we made that happen, along with strolling around downtown.

I won’t be photographing their wedding day (I’m a bridesmaid!), so it was an honor to be asked to shoot their engagement session in Bozeman for them.  I met my dearest Sammi back in Oregon at our freshman year in college.  In fact, we met the very first day of school because she lived right across the hall from me! About three quarters into our freshman year, I decided I was going to transfer to the University of Montana and yep, convinced Sammi to do the same.  Skip forward several years and now she is marrying a Montana boy.  I am one happy friend!

Sammi is a gem and so is Jeremy.  And together, they sparkle! Don’t you think? :)
