What an incredible day! Getting married in Bozeman, Montana surrounded by family, friends, & mountains... what could be better?! Rachael & Derek fell in love surrounded by the mountains they were married in front of. I loved shooting this wedding, Rachael was so relaxed & happy - the way a bride should be on her wedding day!
I love doing family photo shoots in and around Bozeman, there are so many wonderful locations with amazing backdrops! The Shinn family is so sweet, and their daughter Lena is the most smiley baby ever! No joke, she did not stop smiling the whole time!
Family portraits, especially fun, outdoor, candid family portraits are my favorite! I love catching the family in their element, and when it comes to the Patton family, being outdoors, sledding, and laughing is obviously their happy place! These kiddos are so cute and I just can't get over the dimples:) Dimples and laughing children make me smile!
I have been photographing Hope & Azlyn for a few years now, ever since Miss Azlyn came into this world. It's such a blessing to see this beautiful little lady grow up! It's crazy how fast the time is flying by... Seriously, how is she already 2 and a half?!?! We decided to brave the cold and shoot outside at the park.
Colin & Savannah - a fairytale match. He was a whitewater raft guide... she was a whitewater raft goer... he was her guide... and it all started from there...
Well maybe not that cheesy, but this is truly a fairytale that you see in movies. How many women have fantasized about traveling to the mountains of Montana and falling in love with their rugged, mountain man of a guide?
Their love is infectious! Ashley and Eric may be one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. Ashley is my dear cousin and I have known her forever. I couldn't be more excited to see her marry the love of her life. She wore and incredible gown of lace and walked down the isle with her mom's veil.
I love this time of year. Fall is great for so many reasons, one of which being a fabulous time of year to shoot photos! I met Taylor last spring when I shot all the head shots for the BHS Dance Team. We decided to start the shoot downtown and then worked our way over to Lindley Park and Peet's Hill.
Big Sky, Montana will always hold a special place in my heart. I first started my photography career there over ten years ago taking photos on the ski slopes of Big Sky Resort. The tight-knit community of Big Sky is filled with some of the most wonderful people I know and Kenny Holtz & his gorgeous family are prime examples of that.
High school senior photo shoots are always a blast. One thing I try to do is incorporate a few personal touches from the senior's life into the shoot. My favorite way to do this is by having the student choose one or two locations that hold a special significance to them in their high school lives. It's a way to put a personal touch on the experience & bring the student to a more comfortable state of mind for what is usually a very foreign experience.
Early fall afternoons are proving to be the perfect time to shoot family photos here in Bozeman, Montana. Just take the Pieroni family shoot for example.
Big Sky, Montana has brought so many wonderful couples together! Jen & Colin met many years ago where most of us got our start in Big Sky... the HR office of Big Sky Resort:) These two have grown as a couple surrounded by amazing friends, family, and gorgeous mountains. The wedding took place outdoors in Paradise Valley, just off the banks of the Yellowstone River.
