When Lua first reached out to me about photographing her backyard Billings wedding, I read her sweet email and happily agreed. I arrived at the house that afternoon to the most unexpected day ever. I knew it would be amazing, but it was really amazing! Her mom welcomed me at the door in a handshake/hug and pulled me into the house giving me a tour all while hugging me the whole time. That’s when I knew it would be really good. Lua is the sweetest Texas bride, and she made the whole day great with her relaxed attitude. Her groom Erfan was equally relaxed and happy. Such an amazing day! His family traveled all the way from Toronto for the celebrations. This also was not your typical backyard wedding. The Rimrocks were all beauty, and the perfect backdrop to their I Do’s. Their ceremony was so intimate and perfect, which they followed with a delicious meal served to their family and friends. Then, dancing! They danced so much. For hours and hours. One thing is certain, this couple knows how to have fun and celebrate, and that will make for a very nice life together.

I am so honored to know you and to have documented your day, such fun!

I met up with Shelby and Ryley at her ranch for their e-session, and it was just so perfect. No wind, no mosquitos, and tons of golden light and pretty horses. #heaven.

Tatum and Milo. They are the most perfect couple, and seriously could not have made my job any easier. They had the greatest wedding, it was so, so fun. And Tatum is such an amazing person to be around, her good energy is infectious and  immediately transferred to me. I ate that up. She is the best. Even though it was her big day, she made sure to take the time to have fun with everyone, especially the kids. And this wedding had a lot of cute kids! They hosted their wedding at Medalta in Medicine Hat, and it was s t u n n i n g.

I am so excited to be sharing this wedding finally! This bride. She is really one of the most gracious and authentic people I have ever got to work with. A total Dahl ; ). I can’t say enough good things about her. And Caleb was equally great to work with, making this wedding a dream. Their ceremony was at the beautiful St. Anthony’s church in Bozeman, followed by a reception at the historic Baxter Hotel. One of my favorites. They served the most elegant meal and luxurious cake to their friends and family, and they partied! So much fun dancing to celebrate these two!  Congratulations Christa and Caleb, you two are an exceptionally nice couple and I wish you nothing but goodness. 2016-09-12_0001a2016-09-12_0001

Shelley and Ben. They are a totally lovely couple. I am sure anyone who knows them agrees. Shelley immediately made me feel so welcome and it felt like I was catching up with an old friend! We met at her family’s farm near Empress. The evening air was filled with mosquitos, thunderclouds, and sweet love. We had a fun night, and I am really looking forward to their wedding!
