Woodlands wedding in Bozeman

Never forget the precious moments of your wedding day.  This year I am adding a high quality slideshow as an à la carte item. These are high quality mov files that are much superior to DVD slideshows.  The file is easily convertible to PC or playable on your Mac.

I love the impact that the stills have when you add a little action with some fitting music.  Check out this warm sunny day at The Woodlands in Cottonwood Canyon.  Such a special day for Anna and Chris that they will never forget. Enjoy the view!

Amanda and Kelsey West Boulder Valley

Amanda and Kelsey are here from Hawaii to exchange vows and precious time with their families here in Montana.  In the midst of lots of preparations they took some time off for a photo shoot near Big Timber.  I always love to go somewhere new to photograph, so I thought back to a place where I used to camp and fish with my family. Honestly, I had forgotten just how beautiful the West Boulder Valley is.  I kicked myself for not having my fly rod with me… but I caught a lot of great images.

The wedding is coming up soon at the La Petit Chateau and I am looking forward to photographing for this sweet couple.

Le Petit Chateau in August

Le Petit Chateau in August was warm and green, as a garden wedding should be. Samantha and Logan exchanged vows with solid support from their family and friends under the shade of the tall green trees that tower over this beautiful property.   Enjoy my images and those of my BEST second shooter Jennie Lynn.

Holland Lake Lodge wedding

Holland Lake Lodge wedding

On August 11th of 2007 I photographed Evan and Kristin’s Holland Lake Lodge wedding.  Last weekend, 8 years later and on the same kind of  ‘smokey’ weekend in August they returned to Holland Lake Lodge for a week of fun.  This time they were joined by their sweet daughter Helen.  At first she was a bit camera shy, but then a new and unexpected side of Helen appeared.  Helen is a STAR!  She danced and ran and giggled and played while taking full advantage of 3 or 4 of her favorite dresses.  And when I asked if she would spin…  wow!

What a treat to photograph with this couple and their lovely, inspiring daughter!

Especially our beautiful models Mikayla and Sarah of Coravelli Modeling and excellent hair and makeup from Jenn and Breanne of Indulgence.

Rainbow Ranch Wedding in the Rain

Melissa and Jarrod married in grand style on a lovely spring Saturday afternoon in Big Sky. 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!

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’
