Epic Glacier Wedding in Northwest Montana

Epic Glacier Wedding in Northwest Montana

This wedding was truly all about the couple! They did what they wanted and said to hell with tradition and made it their own. Every detail was hand crafted and was simply exquisite. From the 10:30AM ceremony to the dark and moody decorations juxtaposed with the gorgeous glacier national park landscape it made for an epic wedding! Finish that up with a donut wall and brunch that included chicken and waffle kabobs! Oh and did I mention that this couple was beyond gorgeous and it was the bride’s birthday!?!? Seriously one for the books…enjoy…Pinterest eat your heart out!

Gorgeous Spring Montana Wedding At The Silver Knot

The wedding this past weekend at The Silver Knot in Ronan Montana was nothing short of spectacular! Snow capped Mission Mountains were the perfect backdrop to this beautiful Montana wedding. Everywhere you looked there were amazing details that were done even better than anything on Pinterest. From the blue Jimmy Choo’s to the Pronovias gown it was the epitome of class and elegance! At the center of it all was the most adorable couple that couldn’t help but giggle and smile from ear to ear any time they were near each other. Congrats Zoe and Dane!

This couple came over from Oregon and wanted to get married at the Missoula County Courthouse. I hadn’t been in the courthouse since the renovation…it looks fantastic! I fell in love with how the light cascaded through the windows and the geometric shapes of the architecture was the perfect backdrop to her princess wedding gown. After the ceremony we drove all over finding one gorgeous location after another. If you want adventure elopements…Montana is the way to go. We finished up at a gorgeous antique barn in the middle of a field before they headed up to Glacier for the night. Congrats guys…your day was truly spectacular!!!

Remember that adorable couple with the kick ass Jeeps! Well they got hitched this year and it was absolutely spectacular! Of course they included their Jeeps…they flanked the aisle of the ceremony creating a gorgeous setting with the Bitterroot mountains in the background. The teller Wildlife Refuge and Barn was a beautiful location and Montana certainly was showing off during sunset…one of the most epic ones I’ve ever seen! Congrats Juana and Justing!

Codie has been one of my dearest friends for years! I have shot virtually everything for her including her wedding a few years ago! She asked me to do a fitness shoot at MUST gym here in Missoula. She obviously has worked so hard to look this amazing and I respect the hell out of that…there’s no way my fat ass could ever have that much persistence and dedication! But honestly she’s even prettier on the inside and the sweetest thing ever!!!!

Very rarely do I get a chance to do a model portfolio for guys…it just simply doesn’t happen nearly as much as women in the industry. Regardless, I was asked by the owner of an agency in the region to do a test shoot with Hunter. Seriously, this guy is AMAZING in front of the camera!

Sadly I really only have time to teach/shoot one model and fashion portfolio workshop a year anymore. I absolutely love working with these talented models and agency! This was one from last year that had a lot of new faces that hadn’t been in front of a camera before. They killed it!

Allison and Luke Wedding

Allison and Luke Wedding

Allison and Luke's wedding was worth the wait...it was held at a gorgeous private residence (bride's Mom's home) down the Bitterroot situated on the banks of the river with mountains framing the skyline.  Allison's dress had every little detail you could possibly imagine!  Luke looked amazing in his suit and decided to take off the baseball cap that appears to be permanently attached every other day!  Their wedding could not have been more perfect!

Winter (Spring in Montana) wedding in Red Lodge Montana

This couple has to be the sweetest couple ever!  Their wedding was simply gorgeous and the weather cooperated just enough for them to get some AMAZING photos!  And don't even get me started on the vows...Sarah's vows to their little boy had everyone in tears!  PS if you get a chance go check out Red Lodge it's a super cute town in the middle of nowhere with some great restaurants (one even introduced us to Brown Sugar Bourbon!)

Montana Destination Wedding

Montana Destination Wedding

This adorable couple came up from Arizona...they wanted a Montana destination wedding.  For months Paige kept mentioning that she wanted snow capped peaks in the background of her images.  Boy did she ever get it.  Such an amazing couple who got the background of her dreams in her wedding photos!
