A Big Sky wedding in splendid Montana style.  Madelynn and Keith were married in Big Sky in the historic Soldier’s Chapel, then off to the Gallatin Riverhouse Grill for a great reception by the river.  The day was full of joy, beauty and authenticity. Enjoy the images!

It is always exciting for me to see the work of my daughter Jennie Lynn.   She indeed has been blessed with a visual gift.  Here are a few of her images from a Bozeman wedding in early July at the Le Petit Chateau.  Saturday we’ll be working together at another wedding there for one of my clients and I can’t wait. Enjoy the view.

Bozeman wedding at Springhill Pavilion

It was dramatic, it was delightful and the light was splendid.  About 10 minutes after the ceremony of Kathyrn and Michael the wind gathered it’s strength and the rain began to fall, and I mean fall!  The bride ‘called it’ and moved everyone inside the century old Springhill Pavilion to continue on. It was an evening with character and purpose.  Joyous.  Momentous.  It was truly an authentic wedding in the hills outside of Bozeman. And after the storm we made photos in the softly lit glow of our big Montana sky.

‘Real life, real people… real images’

Rainbow Ranch Wedding in the Rain

Melissa and Jarrod married in grand style last Saturday. Their wedding was blessed with RAIN… and lot’s of it. It was an amazing Rainbow Ranch Wedding in the Rain with floral and event design by Katalin Green Events. This was the kick off of my official summer full of weddings. Thanks to my daughter Jennie Lynn for her spectacular image making and solid support. The evening was topped off with the voice and spirit of “Cold Hard Cash”… a must see show, a peerless presentation of the music of Johnny Cash.

Enjoy the fabulous view of this heart felt and spirited wedding. Cheers to my new friends Missy and Jarrod!

Paradise Valley elopement

For Bethany and Kelley, their trip to Montana started off as an elopement. But as it turned out their friends and family weighed in… so, the wedding photography turned into a pre-wedding photo session.

As we stood above the Paradise Valley the sky was beautiful and dramatic. Moisture filled the air and a glowing light seemed to emanate for all around. To me it seemed that these two were married right then and there by the powerful nature of our springtime in Montana.

Best wishes to my new friends on their wedding day in Georgia! Perhaps I will have the pleasure of photographing the event in their beautiful part of the country.

Enjoy.LS7_3670

Wedding Anniversary Portraits

Katy and Scott married ten years ago to the day of this Wedding Anniversary Portraits shoot. Only this time they were joined by their son Winston!  I was so pleased they called me for this grand occasion.

It was a splendid couple of hours on the 320 Ranch with all the mountain weather you can imagine.  And in the end we were baptized with the most delicious rain and sun… and then the rainbow!  Here’s to ten years of love, romance and a fine young son!!!  Congratulations Katy and Scott!

Yoga and horses

Yoga and horses.  Finding confidence in your life through the connection with horses, yoga and self enlightenment.  Yes, that’s right.  I have been photographing this phenomena for many years now.  Humans and horses finding confidence and faith in one another and through that… finding yoga (union) and resolution in many ways.  It’s not the end all, cure all of life but it is #meaningfultobehold and a deep learning experience.

This week I photographed with 10 wonderful individuals that took the time to explore this experience. I will let these images speak.  Thanks to the B Bar Ranch, Margaret Burns Vap and Big Sky Yoga Retreats.

Living in Montana, floating the Yellowstone

So what is the activity of choice when I have a weekend off?  Floating the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley.  This week my nephew Jason is visiting from Kansas City.  The fishing float was a gift from my good friend Derek DeYoung.  If you don’t know who Derek is and you love fishing and you love art, you should check it out. Derek DeYoung

Jason won the ‘best fish of the day’ award.  A 16 inch fatty Rainbow.  And I am happy to say that the fish still lives and thrives in the Yellowstone.

and oh yes, #meaningfultobehold

Derek’s patented OPEN HEART casting technique! It’s like yoga for fishermen and women.

Here are some moments from this stellar day on the river.  DSC_0230

Real life, real people, real images.

How beautiful. How wonderful, today.

My focus is and always has been on authenticity.  It’s the only thing that we have that is unique unto ourselves.  We are all unique and authentic beings… no two alike.  That’s what I believe.

Tonight I photographed with Katria and Tanner.  Katria…a beautiful woman, a ballerina, a teacher, and artist.  Tanner… an athlete, a business man, a mountain of a man with a heart of kindness and gold.  They will marry next year in July and I am so pleased to be photographing for these most authentic souls.  I could write a chapter or two about this, but… I will spare you the pain of reading such a dissertation.  However in stead I submit 5 images.

Real life, real people, real images.

Thanks Tanner and Katria for being my subjects tonight.  I loved it!!! I can’t wait for your wedding day.
