Laine and Zach chose to elope in Glacier National Park, just the two of them and their friend from Montana officiating. We were so lucky to join these two, and show them one of our favorite parts of the park, Many Glacier Hotel! This was in May, before the hotel was even open, so besides the nearby wildlife, it was just us for miles. Can't imagine a more perfect place to say your vows!! Since these two cuties were coming from out of state, I, Rachel, made Laine's bouquet, and did her hair and makeup. Her stunning dress from BHLND looked amazing in the wind on top of the plateau we found for their ceremony over looking Swift Current Lake. Laine and Zach have since added a beautiful baby girl to their family, and we couldn't be happier for them! Weddings are always special, but elopements like this tug at my heart strings. We ended the evening with the two of them sharing a First Dance on the shores of the lake...and yes, I cried.
We loved being a part of Kathleen and David's Montana wedding this past summer in at Atanaha Event Center. When people are crazy in love our job becomes crazy easy. We barely had to give them any direction, instead just finding the beautiful light and letting them be. Kathleen's best friend, Abby from Mum's Flowers, designed her stunning bouquet to match her gorgeous light blue eyes!
Part one of five from the Loom Sessions at Bloomsbury Farms, in Nashville, Tennessee. It was the first time I'd photographed in a workshop like setting, and so I opted to keep things as simple on my end as possible, putting the focus more on watching the direction, and story that Ginny Au had put together. For this portion, I used my Pentax 6x7, with Kodak 160 film. It was wonderfully challenging to limit myself to 10 shots a roll, as a sequence unfolded, and I loved the way it turned out. More to come soon!

Lindee and Todd's wedding, is one of those weddings that make you believe in true love. That through thick and thin, love always wins. I cried a lot of this wedding, and even though I'm a sensitive person who LOVES weddings and I sort of tear up at every wedding I shoot, I for real cried at this one. Lindee and Todd are so sweet and funny together, but their children were so obviously in love with their parents and genuinely happy to be bringing their families back together. Goldfinch Events knocked it out of the park, perfectly blending Todd's California Cool vibe, with Lindee's Montana Ranch vibe.
