Meagan and Daniel Big Sky Wedding

Meagan and Daniel married at the Rainbow Ranch Lodge a few weeks back and it was a Big Sky Wedding to remember!  When the Tiny Band took the floor, there is just no way you can resist dancing.  Every detail was perfect thanks to Katalin Green Events and Floral.

Enjoy the fun!

Audrey and Micah Paradise Valley wedding

The beauty of the our home in Montana has to be experienced to fathom.  The wedding of Audrey and Micah in Paradise valley was SUBLIME!  The sun at 5o00 feet above sea level was strong and relentless. Families converged from near and far, but most notably was the 97 year old Grandmother of the Groom, mother to one of my best friends of over 30 years. What evolved was moving and wonderfully authentic to all present. My images can say more than I can speak tonight, so here is a brief look at a few highlights of this grand day.  More soon…

Big day in Paradise Valley

It was a Big day in Paradise Valley, when Megan and John merged their lives and their families.  Lot’s of joy and lot’s of emotion in these loving and authentic souls.  Thanks to Becca Boylan for shooting with me on this wedding. She brought her love of people and her uncanny ability to find the magical moments both serious and hilarious, of adults and children alike.  I will let the images tell the story.  In a word  “SWEET”

Yellowstone National Park Wedding

There is nothing like photographing a Yellowstone National Park Wedding during the celebration of the National Park Service Centennial! The traffic was wild! The sky was painted with plumes of smoke from a few nearby fires and Emily, Sean, their immediate family and a few close friends were wonderful!

We drove around for a few hours making images in just a few of the scenic wonders of Yellowstone National Park. Everywhere we went hundreds of people form all over the world were stopping to take a picture of the couple and conveying their congratulations and well wishes.  It was very cool!

The Ceremony took place at one of the colorful pools for an intimate and moving ceremony officiated by the brides father. And then after Old Faithful performed on time, Emily and Sean slipped into their sleek Tesla Model S for some photos!
Enjoy the view!

telling moments

I love to contemplate the moments that make up life. One after another always turning the page of mind. There are special moments that are spacious and moments that stop me and demand that I take notice. I like to think of them as Telling Moments.

During a wedding ceremony when two souls exchange vows of connection, vows of lifelong support and bonds… it always stops me in my tracks. It’s like everything is suspended. All the hustle and bustle leading up to the wedding day, all the planning, hard work and celebration stops. I always like to watch for the moments like these. And when everything stops, something special rushes in!

This is one of my recent favorites! smiles

Chelsie and Vincent on the Yellowstone

There is something very unique about the Yellowstone River valley.  I think it’s all about the history that has transpired in this ever wild and powerful land.  I always feel it when I walk into this river. It’s liberating. So when I walked into the river to shoot a few images from that vantage point, I see things a little differently.

Last night I spent an hour or so with Chelsie and Vincent who are planning their wedding in June of 2017. They chose the Paradise Valley for their photos and I know they love this place as much as I do.  As we photographed I admired how authentic they are in the way they touch and hold onto each other.  It didn’t take much prompting to get them feeling free and comfortable in front of the lens.  Actually, at times I think they sort of forgot about the photography.  And THAT is good!

Happy days ahead for this handsome couple!

Life and Love

‘Life and Love’ seemed to be a fitting title for this post about the wedding of Sierra and Tyler at the Woodlands a few weeks ago.  I don’t really have the words to explain it right now… perhaps later. However, if you take a few minutes to walk through some of the fun, loving, serious, playful, thoughtful and dear moments of this wedding… you’ll get it!

The sumptuous flowers were the creation of  Julio Freitas ‘The Flower Hat’ guy. The culinary deliciousness was provided by Chef Liz Kilby of Just A Taste Catering.  And the beautiful gown and men’s attire… by  Megan Jacks of  After 5 and Weddings.

Images by your’s truly Larry Stanley and my most excellent second photographer and loving daughter Jennie Lynn Stanley.  Enjoy the view!
