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:-)

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

Posted by 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 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!}
