Tom & Arynn – Winter Engagement Pictures – Helena, MT Wedding Photographer

Posted by on in Engagement Pictures

I knew Arynn and I were going to have a BLAST working together right from our very first meeting when we bonded over three-ring binders and the use of organizational tabs (let’s just say that she and I both fully embrace our Type A-ness:).  We also had a lot more in common than either of us realized at that point:  it turns our our moms taught together and our dads were fraternity brothers at MSU – craziness, right?!?

Anyway, I was super psyched for this session – these guys wanted snow-on-the-ground winter engagement pictures and with record snowfall in Helena this year I thought that would be noooooo problem!

Then after 50+ days of below 20 weather it warmed up to 50 degrees – and eeeeeverything melted.  Arrrrgggg!!!

THEN it snowed the day before our session.  #yaaasss!

Finally the day of our session arrived.  The wind was – well “howling” is not even a teeny exaggeration – it was craaaazy.  But it was also sunny and these two were totally up for the challenge of tromping around in the snow until we could find some spots where we wouldn’t be blown off the ground.  Gotta love Montana weather;)

I have to say that I absolutely love the way the pictures turned out – and I had SO much fun hanging out with these two.  Their wedding next October is going to be awesome!!

Zach & Ashlee – Winter Civic Center Wedding – Helena, MT Wedding Photographers

Posted by on in Wedding Photography

I first met Zach & Ashley when we got to do their awesome outdoor engagement session here in Helena (see those pics HERE), but Scott and Zach have known each other for years and years (allllll the way back to when Zach was one of Scott’s track athletes:).  So to be asked to capture Zach & Ashlee’s special day was especially awesome!

These two planned a beautiful winter wedding at the iconic Helena Civic Center.  They held both their ceremony and reception at the Civic Center (since ooooobviously February in Montana = COLD;) but we also lucked out with a sunny, above zero day so we were also able to get some outdoor pictures – woot!  We spent our time outside in the Great Northern Town Center area since Ashley was getting ready with all of her girls at the Great Northern Hotel (which, super shout out to the desk staff at the hotel:  Ashley had a room with french doors leading out to the pool area which was cool, but it meant there was zero natural light…not exactly the greatest for pictures.  When I asked the front desk if there was an empty room we could use for about an hour they COMPLETELY hooked us up!  Soooo super nice of them!).

Several hundred people came to celebrate the big day with Zach & Ashlee and from all of the laughter and hugs in the room you could tell that everyone was so happy to be celebrating with this couple.

Zach & Ashlee – thank you for asking us to be a part of your wedding day!  It was an honor to capture all of these memories for you.  We have TONS more to share, but in the meantime enjoy this sneak peek!:)

 

{confession:  I’m in.love. with these custom wood ring boxes!}

G & G – Twin Newborn Pictures – Helena, MT Photographer

Posted by on in Baby Pictures

Once upon a time (in 2012) Scott and I photographed a gorgeous wedding at Lakeside Ranch.  It was an amazing day filled with love and laughter and we had so much fun working with James & Ashley and their family and friends.

Soooooo when I got the call from Ashley this fall telling me that she and James were PREGNANT – with TWINS – after a long journey to become parents…!!!!  Ya’ll – I’m not going to lie.  I got a little teary-eyed!  We too know what it’s like to wait and wait for the blessing of a baby, and we too know the joy of TWINS!  Eeeeeeek!

And then Ashley told me that they wanted ME to take their newborn pictures {and I *may* have done a little hop for excitement}.  Thank goodness I had done my own boys’ newborn session when we brought them home – because, let me tell ya, twin newborn sessions are not for the faint of heart!

But these two cuties came to the MLP studio and ROCKED their session.  Legit – rocked it.

While Mr. G was awake and loving life, Miss G was sleeeeeeephy and squishy.  And then when Miss G woke up for a snack, Mr. G was most accommodating and fell into a deep sleep.

This photog was NOT going to complain about that;)

And now, it is my distinct honor to present G & G in their worldwide debut {cue alllllllll the up-tilting “awwww’s”}.

 

I truly don’t know what I love most about this photo – Miss G’s peeeeerfectly round tiny tummy, her little hands laying *just so*, or the negative space that emphasizes her sweet newborn tiny-ness.

Ashley & James – I couldn’t be happier for you two.  Your babies are as sweet as can be, and they are so lucky to be a part of your family!  Wishing you sleep at night and blessings in the day.  **big hugs**
