Jeff & Jennifer – Intimate Reeder’s Alley Wedding – Helena, MT Wedding Photographers

Posted by on in Wedding Photography

One of my most FAVORITE places in Helena, MT has always been Reeder’s Alley. It’s an incredible piece of Helena history that’s been preserved almost entirely intact since Helena’s infancy during the gold boom. So you can imagine my delight when Jennifer and Jeff shared that they were planning to have their wedding there! To be honest, I didn’t even know that was an option—but it turns out that it’s an absolutely perfect place if you want to have a small, intimate wedding in a gorgeous historical location.

 

Jeff and Jennifer planned for their wedding weekend to be a time of celebration and connection for their families, many of whom traveled great distances to attend the wedding. From the full day we got to witness I would say that goal was a complete success!

 

There were so many personal touches at this wedding: Jennifer’s stunning dress which had been personally altered by her mom, the table runners, table cloths, and napkins all of which had been sewed by Jenn and her mom, and the ceremony which was officiated by Jeff’s brother. They also picked out details that were perfect for the intimate vibe: the musician Brett Mondie (who’s seriously talented ya’ll, we were super impressed!), the delicious salmon and chicken dinners (not to mention the fab hor d’oeuvres) created by Benny’s Bistro, the amazing cake made by Holly Wiest of Cotton Top Pastries, and the flowers arranged by Knox Flowers.

 

In the end, even the finicky fall Montana weather cooperated. !!!  And one really can’t ask for much more than that;)

 

Enjoy this little peek into Jeff and Jennifer’s wedding!

Miss J – Newborn Pictures in the Studio – Helena, MT Baby Photographer

Posted by on in Baby Pictures

Perfection is a newborn baby.

Their squishy tininess.

Their softest-of-soft wispies of hair.

That sweet smell of the back of their neck when they nestle in **just so.**

 

Ohhhhh.

 

Yes.  Perfection.

 

And this perfect little Miss has been MUCH awaited – not only by her fabulous family but also by ME!  Because this is not the first time I’ve photographed this family – oh no!  I’m the lucky girl who has captured memories for them since their little Mister was just turning one:)  In fact, I last saw them for maternity pictures – SUCH fun!!

 

And now it’s time for little Miss J to have her very own turn in the spotlight.

I’m telling ya – peeeeeerfection.
