Montana Wedding Photographers – Styled Shoot Part 1

This shoot felt like a dream!  When we were asked to be the Montana Wedding Photographers for this winter shoot, we knew we were in for a very pretty afternoon!  It was 100% Montana.  We wanted to show off our home state in the way we knew best- in the mountains by a cozy cabin!  We did a couple different looks for this shoot and I will be sharing part 2 with you next week!

I love the color palette Mum’s Flowers and Goldfinch Events chose when putting together all the elements of this shoot.  You don’t often see bold colors and patterns like these anymore, but I think the blues, greens and reds worked out amazing for the setting we were in!  The poofy Tara Keely gown seals the deal with the flannel worn over the top of the dress.  It’s a little more casual and fun, but still super girly!

Thank you to a talented team of vendors who made this possible!

Top Montana Wedding Photographers 2014 Year in Review

Wow- are we really just 2 days away from 2015!? Roy and I sure have had a blessed year.  We’ve had so many amazing wedding stories take place right in front of us!  When you are a wedding photographer, you really get to know every couple personally and we are always humbled by all the families that welcome us so warmly on wedding days.  It makes us love what we do and we have very thankful hearts!

Roy and I spent the last year adventuring in one of our favorite little towns in Montana.  Whitefish served us so well- we skied lots, visited Glacier Nat’l Park several times, gallivanted across the state to photograph weddings, met new friends and hung out with old ones.  We have now settled in Bozeman, MT where we are a lot closer to family. We are excited about our central location and being able to serve our brides and grooms across the state better.

We have a great lineup of weddings in 2015 already!  We do still have some dates available, so be sure to get in contact with us if you are getting married in 2015 or 2016 and want us to be your Montana wedding photographer!  Here is a look back on just a few weddings we did in 2014.  We will see you in the new year. :)

Montana Wedding Photographers at a Destination Wedding in Coeur d’Alene, ID – Courtney & David

We had the best time being Montana wedding photographers in Coeur d’Alene, ID for Courtney and David’s beautiful mountain wedding. It was such an honor when Courtney approached us last year about photographing her destination wedding in Idaho.  We were anticipating this one for a long time… to see Courtney as a bride was going to be breathtaking!  And it was. :) Courtney is not the typical bride- she is the girl other brides go to for all their wedding day help and ideas. It made us all so excited to see what she would come up with for her own wedding!  She runs an amazing style blog, manages a beautiful Montana bridal boutique, coaches high school volleyball, and is constantly dreaming up fun events and get-togethers for everyone to enjoy. As you look through the wedding day pictures below you will see her talents conveyed through all the images!

Photographing Courtney and David’s engagement session in Glacier National Park last winter made us really excited for their wedding day in Coeur d’Alene.  Courtney and David’s faith-based ceremony was absolutely beautiful- it started with her dad praying over them and ended with every guest getting the chance to partake in communion.  What powerful moments and testimonies of their faith as a couple!

We love traveling for destination weddings. Whether we are photographing weddings in Montana or at a destination wedding in Coeur d’Alene we always feel privileged to tell the story of each bride and groom’s wedding day through our lens.  Thanks Courtney and David and the entire Baker-Ferda gang for hosting us and letting us be a part of such a special day!  We hope you enjoy these beautiful outdoor wedding pictures as much as we do.

Montana Wedding Photographers

We are so excited here at Brooke Peterson Photography to be MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS! This summer we will be traveling the great state of Montana as we capture some beautiful Montana brides on their big wedding day.  You can call us Billings Wedding Photographers, Red Lodge Wedding Photographers, Bozeman Wedding Photographers, Big Sky Wedding Photographers, Bigfork Wedding Photographers, Whitefish Wedding Photographers, and Coeur d’Alene Wedding Photographers to name a few.

We always consider it a great privilege and honor to be chosen to photograph real Montana weddings.  It makes us think back to our own wedding in Big Sky, MT where we reunited with friends, visited with family from far off places, and celebrated the beautiful union of marriage under the Big Sky of Montana.  Now we are looking forward to another lovely season being Montana Wedding Photographers.   We are blessed to photograph so many amazing brides and grooms, families, and friends from all over the world as they gather in celebration of the people they love!

Last summer was filled with so many unforgettable weddings.  We wanted to share a few fun Montana Wedding Pictures and Colorado Wedding Pictures from our 2013 Rocky Mountain weddings.  Our wedding season had some great moments, starting with Jonna and Ben’s wedding in Helena, MT.  Their love for each other was seriously contagious.  It was also fun to learn that Ben’s family has a tradition of escorting the bride off in a wheelbarrow to finish the day.  Another great memory was how we met Jessica and Robert.  It started at Starbucks as we overheard them talking about wedding photography.  Long story short we photographed their incredible Colorado wedding in the Rocky Mountains outside Golden, CO.  Now we get to call them great friends!  Our wedding season finished up perfectly as we photographed a great winter Montana wedding in Whitefish, MT.  Lindley and Jared’s wedding was a true celebration of love, fun, family, and friends.  It felt like we were all inside a snow globe.  We had so much fun in Whitefish at their wedding that we decided to open up another Brooke Peterson Photography location there.

Cheers to a great 2014 Montana wedding photography season.  We can’t wait!

Lindley & Jared 12.22.13 – Whitefish Montana Wedding Photographer

Photographing a Whitefish Montana winter wonderland wedding was a true honor for Brooke Peterson Photography.  Meet Lindley and Jared.  These two are a God following, snowboard loving, mountain bike racing, fun loving couple.  Their ceremony was at the cutest little church (First Presbyterian) in downtown Whitefish, MT.  The day started off just down the road at Grouse Mountain Lodge where Lindley was getting ready with her beautiful bridesmaids.  It wasn’t long before I was tearing up as Lindley was about to see Jared for the first time (her “first look”).  It was such a magical moment to watch – we always feel so blessed when we get to watch these special times. ;)  Shortly after that we heard one of our favorite wedding day quotes of all time from Lindley, “AHH – I LOVE getting married… I wish I could get married everyday!  Of course to you Jared.”  So much fun!

After photographing their big moment together we snuck off for a quick downtown Whitefish picture session. They both looked dazzling as they prepared to walk down the aisle.  Before they exchanged vows we stopped by the Red Caboose for a delicious hot chocolate and a couple more pics near City Beach on Whitefish Lake.  It truly was a perfect wedding with an incredible setting.  It felt as if we were inside a snow globe!

The best part for us is that we get to call these two our friends.  Thank you so much Lindley and Jared for having us be a part of your wedding day!
