This couple really is the cutest.

I met up with Katheryn and Austin in downtown Great Falls for a chilly – but lovely – e-sesh. These two photographed AH-mazin. K is gorgeous, like model gorgeous and so easy to photograph. These two are the cutest together, and I can’t wait for their wedding! xx Court

I am so excited to finally be sharing this wedding! Shelley and Ben were married on the most gorgeous prairie day, complete with one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve ever shot in. When I say this day was pure perfection, that was partly because it was planned so perfectly, but mostly due to the perfect people that took part. This couple is all grace inside and out, and were a complete pleasure to work with. Shelley has this ability to make you feel immediately loved and welcomed, and I felt right at home. Both Shelley and Ben have amazing families, full of support and love and real smiles. Probably the most generous people I have had the opportunity to meet. Their ceremony and reception was located at the old Empress Train Station, which is lovingly restored. What a venue! Everything from the decorations – to the amazing food – to the cake and cupcakes lovingly made by a dear friend – to the dance on the old platform…all amazing. The caterer went beyond to be sure the food was excellent, driving a distance that morning to pick up fresh Salmon, and it really was honestly one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed! Special thanks to my amazing second shooter T who helped ensure an image was never missed!

Congratulations Shelley and Ben, I wish you much love and such a happy, happy life together. 2016-11-13_0001a2016-11-13_0001b2016-11-13_00022016-11-13_0003Lots of amazing young people in their lives!2016-11-13_00042016-11-13_00052016-11-13_00062016-11-13_0007Ok little cutie!2016-11-13_0008Haha they love their Grandpa.2016-11-13_00092016-11-13_00102016-11-13_00112016-11-13_0015How adorable is this!?2016-11-13_00122016-11-13_00132016-11-13_0014

Congratulations!! xx

Oh Kat and David! This post is long overdue. I LOVED this day and I loved these people. And their people. They were a fun bunch. I always say the best part of my business is meeting the people I get to meet. Kat is one of the most gracious, sweetest, generous people I have ever met! And the most gorgeous bride. And David is just as great. Their wedding was at the beautiful Cypress Hills, with their reception at the Cypress Hills Resort. It was the most perfect little gathering filled with celebration and love and all things happy. Their reception was intimate and a delicious Beef Wellington supper was served, so good! It was followed by the cutest marshmallow roast and bonfire. They partied well into the night, with tons of stars dancing above. Congrats Kat and Dave, I know your life together is going to be amazing. xx2016-11-09_0001aMakeup by the lovely Maygen!
