I love mountain tops and helicopters! Aside from the experience of an exhilarating day hike, there is no better means for getting on top of mountain peaks in Montana than a flight in a helicopter. Last November I had the opportunity to shoot with my clients Katelyn and Tyler up above the Madison River overlooking what is known as the Bear Trap in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness area. It was a quick flight over to pick up Katelyn on her family’s farm and then off to the mountains we went! On the way we saw herds of bison and elk as the view of the lands and river were captivating. Upon arrival, Mark Taylor our pilot from Rocky Mountain Rotors put us down on a little spot on top of the high ridge. We hopped out and walked about 25 yards to a rock out cropping above this phenomenal view.
It was such a grand experience! I’m sure there are couples that would want to add this to your Montana elopement or intimate wedding photography experience. Maybe you want to take your officiant along and be married in this location or perhaps have your engagement session in this mountain top world of bliss!
The sky is the limit, enjoy the view and check out the video that Camden Miller Productions created!
