Whitefish Wedding Photography - Norman & Tyler at Whitefish Mountain Resort

I was so fortunate to be included in this wedding at the summit of Whitefish Mountain Resort. Norman & Tyler had a small wedding with 70 of their closest friends and family who experienced a gorgeous day where clouds and rain stayed in the forecast the day prior and returned the day after. As you can see that was absolutely not the case during the ceremony. Instead of traditional formal wear, they wore traditional philippine barongs wich injected real color into the proceedings and made it difficult to deliver too many black and white photos because the colors were just so great.

Venue & Catering: Whitefish Mountain Resort / Planner: Jess Smith / Associate Photographer: A Rose Photography / DJ: Jason Sleed / Officiant: Lynne-Spencer Smith / Bakery: Crooked Tree Coffee & Cakes.

Whitefish Wedding Photography - Kathryn & Justin at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake

When I first met Kathryn for coffee at Coffee Traders to discuss the possibility of photographing her and Justin's wedding I had to really try to contain my excitement. While I wasn't able to meet Justin ahead of time, here was an awesome couple—both of whom are pilots—and the plan was for Kathryn to arrive at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake in a floatplane. How cool is that?! Seriously, in my mind, I was almost thinking "Can I pay you to photograph your wedding? Because this is something I have to do." Thankfully for my own personal livelihood, it didn't come to that and last month, despite gusty winds threatening to scrap the most epic bride's entrance ever entirely, the evening ultimately went off without a hitch. Congratulations to Kathyrn & Justin, thank you so much for including me in your special day, I had a blast with everyone.

Whitefish Wedding Photography - Mountainside Weddings Styled Wedding

I was honored to be asked by the lovely ladies at Repeat Boutique Weddings & Design to participate in a styled wedding shoot at the recently totally revamped Mountainside Weddings venue in Whitefish, Montana. They put together a crack team of vendors from the My Montana Wedding association and it couldn't have come together any better.

Kalispell Wedding Photography - Jaimee & Gavin at Diamond B Weddings

I don't think I could've asked for a better couple to share a wedding with for my first "Montana Wedding" than Jaimee and Gavin. From our first correspondence to their wedding day, they couldn't have been sweeter, or more welcoming. It was soon very clear myself and the rest of the vendors were going to be treated as if we were guests of the wedding, so the initial rain that threatened to put a damper on the evening quickly became a distant memory once it stopped, giving way to a beautiful ceremony and one breathtaking sunset to close out the night. Congratulations Jaimee and Gavin, and thank you so much for including me in the evening!

Shout out to the other vendors who all came together for an amazing night: Diamond B Weddings, Be Our Guest Wedding & Event Planner, Celebrate Event & Party Rental, Smart Alex Band, Dickey's Catering. Spotted Bear Distillery, Farm-to-Market Hog, Soucie Soucie Salon & SpaSkeeter Johnston ProductionsPIXelated Photobooth Gigs, and last but not least my second photographer Leah Lamberson Photography!
