Sam and Kelsie were traveling throughout the Rockies and asked if I would capture them as they were coming through Montana. We decided to venture into a beautiful valley called Blodgett Canyon. After walking a half mile through a dense patch of pines, the valley opens up before you with baby pines, running waters, and vivid cliffs as far as you can see. This shoot was special because the couple allowed the love of their surroundings to help genuinely bring out their love for each other.

We’re all about rustic weddings and Ashley and Andy’s wedding is the quintessential Montana affair. The lovely couple said their vows under the Big Sky at a private ranch surrounded by rolling hills and a to-die-for reclaimed wood barn. They didn’t shy away from color, adding perfect pops of green, purple, and yellow throughout their otherwise simple decor. Though Ashely was rocking some gorgeous embellished heels, we’re not going to lie – Andy’s green suede shoes totally stole the show!
It’s hard to beat the romantic vibe of an autumn wedding in Montana. There are few things dreamier than dancing under the stars while the leaves are changing and that brisk autumn wind makes its way through the reception. Krissa and Ryan’s September wedding absolutely embodied everything we love about the season. They choose deep reds and simple florals to accent the classic architecture of the Sacajawea Hotel. Rustic wood accents, a sparkler exit, and two of the cutest ring bearers we’ve ever seen make this wedding one to remember!
