This wedding had so much natural greenery with various shades of lavender and whites and creams as the color scheme. They even made cute little succulents and homemade glasses for their guests to take home as thank you!
I remember standing off to the side of the dance floor watching their first dance and thinking to myself, “Gosh, I love how in love they are!” Its spectacular to be a wedding photographer and see every type of love. This one is definitely a kind of love that will last the test of time!

Keli and Price's wedding was like a real life fairytale! Keli’s Pnina Tornai ballgown was by far the most beautiful thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on. She looked beyond brilliant. Price was overcome with emotions seeing his beautiful bride at the first look…and I might have cried a little too.
The ceremony was so sweet and touching. Keli and Price really incorporated all of their family into it. Then, we all danced the night away and celebrated this beautiful new couple!
Cue: sparkler exit and riding off into the sunset on a horse drawn carriage (okay, okay, no horse drawn carriage, BUT they were totally real life Prince Charming and Cinderella!)

I was honored to not only shoot Paige and Cole’s engagement, but also their proposal. These two love birds are totally meant for each other in every way. The Silver Knot venue offered a beautiful Montana mountain backdrop for the ceremony where the guests witnessed the union of Paige and Cole. In true Montana fashion, it down poured all morning but the skies cleared for portraits, the ceremony, AND an insanely amazing golden sunset! These photos really say it all. So much joy, smiles, laughter, and fun at this celebration!

DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM?
I am a hybrid photographer that shoots digital images with Canon bodies and lenses, combined with medium format film photography at all weddings! My wedding package includes approximately 75% digital and 25% film. All portrait sessions are on digital only.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Definitely! We all know that nothing beats a Montana sunset and I'm happy to travel around MT for a a small fee. Anything within 30 miles of Missoula, MT is included in my pricing! I can also go worldwide for an additional fee.
DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?
I am happy to take all major credit cards through my online payment system. I am also happy to do payment plans (I totally understand being on a budget!).
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK?
I recommend booking as soon as you have your date and venue, about nine to twelve months in advance. I take a limited amount of weddings a year to be sure to give my full attention to each couple.
HOORAY! WE WANT TO BOOK! WHAT’S NEXT?
Yay! This makes me the happiest! To reserve your date a 50% non-refundable retainer (or payment plan) and contract must be signed. No date is held until I have received the signed contract and deposit.
DO WE HAVE TO DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
An engagement session is included and while its optional, I highly recommend it. It's such a great way for us all to get to know each other a little better before the wedding day and for you to get better acquainted with my photographer style. I love showing up to a wedding as a friend instead of just another vendor and it makes me so happy when I've built a relationship with my couples. Plus it's a great way to get rid of photo jitters, and to see how I work. When the wedding day comes you'll be old pros at it all and the portraits will run much smoother. If you still don't want to do one, that's fine but because they are complimentary it will not change the total of the package.
OKAY THEN, LET’S DO IT! WHAT TIME DOES THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION BEGIN?
Since I'm a natural light photographer (I use flash during receptions) my favorite time to shoot is during golden hour, which is right before the sun sets. Typically we'll start your engagement session about 2 hours before sunset.
DO WE GET THE DIGITAL FILES?
Yes, all of the final edited digital files and film scans are included! You will receive a personal online gallery where you will be able to download all of the images and print your heart away.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
It all depends on which package you choose, but on average you end up with about 40-80 images per hour, or about 500-800 for a full wedding day.
HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD WE SET ASIDE FOR PHOTOS ON THE WEDDING DAY?
In a perfect world, 45-60 minutes for first look and bride and groom portraits and 30 minutes each for family and bridal party portraits.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
For portrait and engagement sessions, two weeks. For your wedding day (depending on busy season), six to ten weeks.
SHOULD WE DO A FIRST LOOK?
I highly encourage first looks, for many reasons. It's a chance for the two of you to talk, kiss, be sappy and get TIME TO YOURSELVES before the celebration begins. With my background in wedding planning and 150+ weddings that I've photographed, the one regret most brides have is not getting enough time with their family and guests. This is easily resolved with doing a first look! You have all of the portraits done before the ceremony and allows you to head straight to your party after ceremony and enjoy your time. AND... I PROMISE... the whole seeing each other when you're walking down the aisle thing will still be as special and full of tears!
