Kim and Ryan exchanged their vows in the back yard of Ryan’s parents’ beautiful Bozeman residence. I LOVE backyard weddings for so many reasons, and this beautiful wedding will shows you all of them. Charm, comfort, laid back feel… And just about any Montana wedding is sure to have beautiful landscapes, warm and friendly guests, and of course hand crafted beers. Kim and Ryan’s love for beer was a big part of their relationship. Going out for a beer always led to hours of conversation, and they wanted to incorporate the same feel for their wedding. With their very own beer bar featuring three of their favorite microbrews on tap, hops for boutonnieres, old beer bottles for table decorations, and custom beer cups gifted to guests, Kim and Ryan’s beer-inspired wedding not only encouraged conversation and party vibes but led to hours of dancing and celebrating. It was so fun hanging out with these two throughout their big day. They’re so kind and genuine and just a perfect fit.

The third time is a charm. I rarely cancel sessions; I’ve learned that canceling too early usually leaves me with regret as I sit on my porch just before sunset looking at the amazing light I should have been shooting. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve cancelled, and two of those cancellations were for Megan and Joel’s engagements. Yes, the third time was a charm, but the weather could have been a bit more charming, especially for the middle of July. We were determined, so the 50 degree weather was only a minor setback. Even with all the setbacks, I loved how Megan and Joel were so easy going about it all.

I love watching my clients’ families grow, and photographing them along the way is just the icing on the top. I photographed Andrea and Nathan’s wedding in 2014 and was thrilled when they invited me into their home to photograph a morning in their lives with their new little man Oliver. I loved how awake and alert he was for a lot of the session, and some of his sweet expressions left me smiling from ear to ear.

It’s true. Her name is Montana, and she lives in Montana.

I just love that.

This session, you guys… I was holding back tears the entire time because of how sweet Adam and Tanna (for short) were with each other. Adam found me and scheduled a lifestyle session as a Mother’s Day gift for his wife. And this, my friends, is what I love. Several of my clients have surprised their significant others with sessions, and in my mind what better gift is there? So we spent the evening on Mother’s Day walking around the hills of Mount Helena capturing this significant time in their lives and focusing on the love, commitment, and devotion that has brought them to this point. I love how Tanna described her hopes for the session. “There are plenty of photos of mom’s belly. It’s important to me this photo session is about us – this moment in our lives where it has been just the two of us and soon to be the three of us. I want to capture us before this beautiful new journey.”

When I met Marit I just knew I wanted to be her photographer. There are some people who just radiate warmth, kindness, and sincerity, and these characteristics just fit this girl. I had a blast hanging out with Marit and Mike, who, by the way, is also super awesome, during their engagement session. And I can’t wait for their wedding in just two weeks!
