There is something very special about a private elopement wedding in the altitude and vastness of the mountains of Montana and the quietness of nature. Nastasya and Tony were married on a Saturday in August on a beautiful mountainside at the Lone Mountain Guest Ranch. I felt blessed to attend and capture the beauty and the feeling of this occasion. Enjoy the view!

Nicole and William married at the 320 Guest Ranch on a beautiful day in August. Families and friends gathered alongside the river on this lovely historic Montana ranch. At every wedding there is always a bitter sweet environment that is always with us as human beings. That is the truth of life and death. This occasion was immensely sweet, beautiful and wonderful in every way and yet the knowledge of the recent loss of the bride’s father was in everyone’s heart. His presence was tangible at his daughter’s wedding! It was an honor to photograph with this couple, their families and friends. The pictures tell the story!
Many thanks to my fine friend Carlie Breen for her talented help with capturing the beautiful moments of this wedding day!
This is the second wedding in the last 12 months that I have been invited to photograph in my neighboring state of Wyoming and once again… I loved every minute of it! Warm weather, big hearts, mountainous vistas and the great big Wyoming sky. This place calls me back, time and again. This wedding was originally planned for Yellowstone Park, however the plan didn’t prove out in the face of post covid complications. So, off they went to Wyoming and it was a fabulous day of FAMILY, FRIENDS and LOVE!
Congratulations to my new friends Michelle and Lance! Enjoy the view!
A huge heart felt THANK YOU goes out to my dear friend Cali Frankovic for finding her way to Wyoming to share in the image making fun!
Personally I can’t get enough of the 320 Ranch in Big Sky and I love making images in this luscious mountain valley. This spring I’m thrilled to be returning for another wedding!
Holden and Greg convened with their family and friends for this splendid wedding day. The weather was wonderful and they were spared the afternoon showers that had been the normal course of events on the ranch this summer.
Abundant and beautiful flowers were produced by the talented Katalin Green. The wedding arbor was simply gorgeous. Thanks to Carlie Breen Auger for joining me as second camera. Many of the photos in this collection were captured by her adept perception and eye for beauty! AND once again Carlie will be my partner in image making! I’m stoked!

Paradise Valley Montana is a visual delight just about any time of year. This engagement session in November was no exception and this couple drove all the way from Kentucky to visit their venue for next summer’s wedding and to spend some time in front of my camera in my backyard.
Emily serves in the military and it was an honor and a pleasure to make some images with these two. A really delightful couple!
The images look warm but the breeze made it a little brisk at about 50 degrees. The intense sun and quick shooting helped us stay comfortable and happy.
Enjoy the view!
