A Little About Me, Engagements

Best of Engagements 2017

December 30, 2017

Alrighty…. today I’m sharing my best of engagement sessions (and couple sessions)! They are seriously my absolute, hands-down favorite session to shoot.  I love capturing two people madly in love and giving them moments to treasure for a lifetime. And… I love how excited brides-to-be get for their engagements!  They seriously put so much time and energy into their styling, hair, makeup, and little details.  So, to be able to be the artist behind the lens to create their masterpiece is such a blessing.

I’ve done so many engagement sessions this year and there is seriously NO WAY to pick just a few faves.  So please don’t mind this LONG POST! haha!

So, let’s jump in!! Here are my BEST engagement session images from 2017!

Cecily & Andrew are literally the perfect couple.  I mean, they are completely beautiful humans AND they both have a heart of gold. I’m so glad they found each other! This love-filled winter session with the pop of Cecily’s dark red dress against the snow was pure perfection!

Oh gosh, this sesh was COLD! But, Sarah and Dustin are total champs and braved the winter weather.  They chose the mission mountains for the backdrop which gave their engagement session the WOW factor! I adore these two and their cute puppy Payton!

Probs my fave engagement session of the year. Catie and Rodee ROCKED this session! And… my mom made their beautiful bouquet from scratch! She’s so creative and handy like that. 😉

Paige & Pete.  Her middle name is even “Paige Marie”!!! I swear I didn’t stop laughing with them the entire session! These two are so fun and giggly.  Seriously #marriagegoals.  It was a great anniversary session!

Jay & Erik made their engagement session simple and perfect.  With jeans and Springtime in Missoula, we got some great shots!

Kenzie & Andrew are GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW!!!!!!! Ahhh! My first New Years Eve wedding!  I loved their engagement session with their cute pup and had a great time roaming around downtown Missoula together!

Julie & Lane and their SWEET corgi puppy.  I died when she walked up in her adorable pink bow!  This gorgeous session was shot in Bozeman, MT just after I was over there shooting a wedding the day before.  We met early in the morning and had some of my favorite lighting!

Hillary & Lee’s engagement was planned by the amazing Soiree 99 Events and featured in Rocky Mountain Bride! I wish I could choose just ONE photo that I love from their love fest, but these two rocked the entire thing… so I gave you a TON to look through!

Cara & Michael’s engagement was super sweet! They live long distance most of the year because Cara is in medical school, but their love is everlasting!

Kiki & Brian’s Black Tie engagement shoot was so luxurious and Glacier National Park was the perfect backdrop to document this magical day! Kiki & Brian have such a unique love story that I was honored to be able to capture! HERE is where you can read all about it!

Kelsey & Ryan are high school sweethearts and so much fun to shoot! We meet up about once a year to get their annual photos… and I swear one of these days Ryan is going to get down on one knee and propose! 😉

Elle & Shawn live in Seattle and if ever there’s a reason to travel, I’m in! This was the perfect reason to meet up again and hear about their love story! HERE is their full engagement sesh!

Hannah & Lance fit perfectly into Montana’s fall theme! And Lance’s family owns the new Highlander brewery so, of course, we had to get some beer shots in their photos!

Casey & Will drove over from Washington along with their pups for their fall engagement shoot! Gosh, I just love Greenough Park this time of year!

Jo & Sam were picture perfect in every way for their engagement! We went to Jo’s family’s ranch out in Cyr, Montana, and had the most incredible, fun, love-filled time together. Their images are GORG! Find their full post HERE!

Brandy & Joe were so adorable with their Christmas props! They wanted something fun and unique for their photos, and I think the mistletoe certainly did the trick!

The snow up at Lolo Pass made Amy and Justin’s engagement shoot a winter wonderland! These two were awesome to photograph! HERE is their full engagement post!

Keli & Price’s engagement session was a bit chilly up at Salmon and Seeley Lake, but it looked like a scene straight out of Narnia! Keli and Price, along with their adorable puppies Pistol and Arnold, made this engagement shoot so fun and such a pleasure to be a part of! See their full shoot HERE!

Alex & Matt make me smile just thinking back to their engagement session a couple weekends ago.  Alex for sure has the cutest laugh I’ve ever heard, and Aleks (my second shooter) and I were giggling right along with them the entire time. SO MUCH FUN!


I’m also currently editing MORE ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS and will post them asap! Stay tuned!
