Tom & Arynn – Cathedral of St. Helena and Kleffner Ranch Wedding – Helena MT Wedding Photography

Posted by in Wedding Photography

Ok, I’m going to be totally honest here: I’ve been excited for this wedding since the very first meeting Arynn and I had together.  I knew immediately that we were kindred spirits who lurve us some organization (binders FTW!) and are most happy when embracing our Type A-ness:) :)

 

I also found it serendipitous that our family histories go waaaaaaay back: my dad and Arynn’s dad were fraternity brothers and my mom and Arynn’s mom were teachers together. But we didn’t know that when we were first meeting! Crazy, right?!

 

Anyway, needless to say, Arynn and I had many bonding moments over the next year-ish – including looooots of texts, a few 2:00 am emails, and a [brutally] windy engagement session (where Tom and Arynn were pretty much the best sports ever!).  So I went into this wedding day knowing it was going to be amazing.

 

And boy was I right!!!  Leading up to the wedding Arynn had planned all of the details meticulously, but on her wedding day she and Tom were fully immersed in the moment.  They laughed {and cried} and hugged and danced [and completely ignored the fact that the wind was nearly hurricane force that day – legit, it was crazy]. And Scott and I watched and grinned behind our cameras to see their sheer joy and happiness AND the joy and happiness of all their friends and family for this couple.  You could literally FEEL the love filling the Cathedral the Kleffner barn.

 

{{{there were also some shenanigans and a couple epic leisure suits – which, if those don’t make a wedding better I don’t know what will! ;)}}}

 

Tom & Arynn – we couldn’t be happier for you guys.  Your day was beautiful and we are SO EXCITED to share these pictures with you!!  Loooooots more to come, but until then we hope you enjoy this Sneak Peek!

Josh & Allison – Cathedral of St. Helena and Montana Club Wedding – Helena, MT Wedding Photographers

Posted by in Wedding Photography

Josh & Allison planned an elegant celebration for their fall wedding in Helena, Montana – and they spent that long-awaited day surrounded by family and friends from all over the country. The bride and the groom both grew up in the South, but their families have since moved to the Helena area and we could tell how much Josh & Allison and their parents were enjoying hosting everyone in their new hometown!

 

It seemed that every detail had been thought of in this beautiful wedding. The bride got ready in the Bridal Suite at the historic Barrister Bed & Breakfast with her mom and maid of honor. The traditional full-mass ceremony was held in the stunning Cathedral of St. Helena, and The Montana Club hosted the evening of dinner and dancing (soooo much dancing!:).

 

After our engagement session {{where these two braved TONS of snow and suuuuuch cold temperatures without a single complaint!}} I knew we were going to have a blast capturing this wedding day. And I was right!! From the toasting and the dancing to the eating and the laughter, it all made for an unforgettable day.

 

Josh & Allison – we couldn’t be happier for you two! We loved capturing these memories for you and we can’t wait to show you the rest SOON!!:)

Kyle & Kayla – Fishing Lodge Wedding – Montana Wedding Photographers

Posted by in Wedding Photography

Kyle & Kayla are a couple that we’ve known for years and years, and I can’t even tell you what an honor it is to be asked by amazing people to capture the amazingly important moments in their lives.

 

{{{{{{{alllllllll the goosebumps guys, allllll the goosebumps!!!}}}}}

 

From the very beginning these guys said that they wanted a relaxed, intimate celebration for their wedding—one that had a “backyard BBQ party” feel. They wanted to spend their time connecting with their guests and enjoying their day, not stressing or having things being too scheduled.

 

That vision came to life and THEN some in this gorgeous celebration!

 

They searched high and low for the perfect venue and the final winner, The Flatwater Lodge on the Missouri river, was STUNNING and oh-so-perfect for this couple. It wouldn’t work for a large (or super formal) wedding, but for a smaller, informal wedding it was ab-so-lute-ly perfect! Scott and I were also super impressed by all of the details that had been lovingly handcrafted by Kyle & Kayla’s families: a handmade cookie tree, popcorn cart, wooden lanterns, hand-painted signs. Everywhere you looked there was another personal detail! I also loved the many nods to Kyle [obsession;)] and Kayla’s [love] of hunting, from the antlers and sheds decorating the ceremony location, to the antler broach Kayla gave to Kyle on the wedding morning to wear in place of a boutonniere.

 

All in all this was a day so filled with love and laughter that I found myself smiling all the way home—that much happiness just filled my heart right up to the very tippy top.

 

Kyle & Kayla – thank you for sharing your special day with us. We couldn’t be happier for the two of you and we loved every moment we got to spend with you!!

Will & Kristina – the Round Barn Wedding – Twin Bridges, MT Wedding Photography

Posted by in Wedding Photography

We were SO excited to travel to the Ruby Valley for Will & Kristina’s wedding. I’ve known Kristina for many years now and she and Scott have known each other since childhood, so we were super happy for her and her new marriage. Will & Kristina have also known each other since childhood, but it was only after many years and many adventures that they both ended back up in the Ruby Valley and fell in love (awww!).

Will & Kristina’s wedding day was filled with so many lovingly hand-crafted details, from the jars of homemade relish and jelly for each guest, to the {ahhhmazing!!} cheesecakes made by Carolyn, Will’s mom in place of a traditional wedding cake (have you ever heard of a margarita cheesecake? how about carrot cheesecake? YUM!).

Their day was also filled with people who had traveled far and wide to celebrate this marriage with Will and Kristina. It was really touching to see all of that love gathered together.

The location was a brand new one for us (and I was soooo excited to finally see the inside after driving by it for nearly 15 years on our trips to see Scott’s parents in Sheridan, MT and just being fascinated by it’s unique design).  The Round Barn was built in 1882 (you can read more about it’s history HERE) but it’s just in the past couple of years that it has undergone a complete restoration to become an event center and wedding venue. It. Is. Stunning. !!!

All and all it was a beautiful day filled with love and laughter and we had so much fun capturing all of these memories.

Will & Kristina – thank you for asking us to be part of your special day! We can’t wait to share these pictures with you!

Miss A – Newborn Pictures – Helena, MT Baby Photographer

Posted by in Baby Pictures

There are some babies I call “my MLP Babies” because I’ve known their parents for years and years and I’ve captured so many memories for them over the years (usually starting with their Engagement pictures and Wedding pictures:).  So it never fails to thrill me when I get a call from another one of our wedding couples letting me know that their family is growing that they’d like me to capture these memories of their baby for them.

All the goosebumps you guys, allllllllll the goosebumps. {{{heart emoji’s for daaaaays}}}

Miss A is definitely one of my MLP Babies (and I was ironically being hired by Melissa’s mom AND Melissa at the same time for almost the exact same pictures, lol, but since her mama was trying to set up a Christmas surprise I worked hard to keep Melissa from booking until AFTER Christmas – whew!).

By the time Miss A made it to the studio she proved that she’s already a PRO at pictures – a sweeter, snugglier, squishier baby there never was.  For reals.  !!

And guess what?  Her Mommy & Daddy are just as ga-ga for her as I was.

Shocker;)

So now you guys get a glimpse of this sweet newborn perfection.

You’re welcome:-)
