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.

Saint Mary Montana Wedding Photography - Debra & Christopher

While they're regular visitors to the area due to familial ties, Debra and Christopher were planning their wedding day from the East coast. Naturally, in the best of scenarios, this can make planning and coordinating a wedding without a planner difficult. And when a permitting snafu scuttles plans for a wedding in the Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park you're forced to fall back to a plan B. Of course when your fallback is family land on the shores of Lower Saint Mary Lake, your plan B is better than many people's plan A!

From getting ready, the first look, the wedding ceremony, and then a family hike in the Two Medicine area the day after the wedding, I really got a chance to get to know both of them and their children, and it couldn't have been more fun. It is so humbling to be included in such a special day.

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.

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.

Polson Wedding Photography - Jojo & Bill at the Barn at Finley Point

What to say about these two. They've got just about the most amazing "meet cute" on earth, and they couldn't possibly be any sweeter than they are. From the moment I arrived Leah Lamberson and I were treated as family by everyone from the couple to the entire guest list. The Barn at Finley Point provided an idyllic setting, with rentals from Barn Door Rentals.

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!

Whitefish Vow Renewal Photography - Kathy & Robert at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of capturing a surprise vow renewal ceremony for Kathy & Robert on their 50th anniversary. They're children put everything together, writing the vows and each taking turns as the officiant. The weather was perfect, the setting at The Lodge at Whitefish Lake provided an amazing backdrop, and they were all the absolute sweetest people you could ever want to meet. We could all be so lucky to share such a life of adventure with someone for so many years, and to have such a wonderful family to boot! Congratulations on 50 years Kathy and Robert!

Dripping Springs Wedding Photography - Morgan & Billy at Prospect House

This past fall I had the pleasure of second-shooting for your pal and mine—Dave McLaughlin—for a beautiful wedding out at Prospect House in Dripping Springs. I'd never shot there before and was really happy to get my first opportunity to do so, it is one of the more unique Texas Hill Country venues I've had a chance to shoot at with a great combination of intimate rooms and grand vistas. Congrats to Morgan & Billy, and thank you to Dave for bringing me out there for the assist!

Austin Wedding Photography - Jana & Michael at The Vineyard at Florence

I very nearly botched any chance of shooting Jana and Michael's wedding in my very first correspondence with them. In my initial response to Jana's inquiry, my phone autocorrected her name to my Mom's name—Jane. I caught the error as soon as I hit send and realized I'd better send an immediate follow-up, explaining what had happened. Thankfully this frankness endeared me to them and I couldn't be more happy about it. Meeting them for lunch before the wedding I knew the big day would be extremely special, and it was. A relatively simple, reasonably intimate wedding with really just their close friends and family meant lots of hugs, smiles, and laughter. The wedding was at The Vineyard at Florence a nice drive North of Austin. A big thanks to my second shooter Jakobeit Photo  and a huge congratulations Jana and Michael!

Austin Wedding Photography - Megan & Aubrey at Tiny T Ranch

I feel so fortunate to have met this extremely loving couple and their wonderful families and friends. It was really important to them that everyone including the vendors have a good time and was treated like family and it absolutely felt that way. From the unique setting at Spike Gillespie's Tiny T Ranch just east of Austin towards Bastrop, to the tents around the property where guests were camping overnight after the ceremony and festivities, to the enormous fireworks display serving as a stand-in for the 'send off' in a nod to Aubrey's father's love of putting on fireworks shows it was a one-of-a-kind experience that I couldn't be prouder to be a part of. Congratulations Megan & Aubrey!

Austin Wedding Photography - Katie & Brandon at Stonehouse Villa

I was extremely happy to be shooting this wedding at the lovely Stonehouse Villa in Driftwood just outside Austin, being the second time I've had the pleasure of documenting a wedding at this venue. I had met Katie and Brandon prior to the wedding for coffee and immediately could tell it would be a fun time. Within minutes of arriving at the wedding, myself and my second shooter—also Brandon were pretty much treated as longtime friends just along for the ride. Congratulations you guys!

Hill Country Wedding Photography - Sarah & Ryan at Spicewood Vineyards

It isn't often you get the opportunity to document one of the happiest days in the life of a very nearly lifelong friend. I had just that opportunity a few weeks ago in Spicewood, Texas at Spicewood Vineyards. It was a perfect setting, with perfect weather, and the perfect people.

Austin Backyard Wedding Photography - Kristin & Bill

This particular wedding was a real special thing for me. The groom and I go way back, almost two-thirds of my life back in fact. When they approached me to document their intimate, backyard wedding how could I say no?

After the ceremony at their residence, we moved to Olive & June for a cocktail hour and dinner reception with some amazing food. And not even the sudden, torrential, almost apocalyptic rain could dampen the spirits of this couple. Congratulations Kristin and Bill!

Austin Wedding Photography - Jessica & Josh at Stonehouse Villa

This could very well have been the easiest wedding shoot of all time. I'd had the pleasure of meeting Josh & Jessica while shooting a few other weddings, which meant lots of familiar faces. Combined with an amazing Hill Country evening at Stonehouse Villa food from East Side King and music provided by three bands (all of which Josh is part of), it was truly unforgettable.

Austin Wedding Photography - Grayson & Matt at The Inn at Wild Rose Hall

A few weeks ago I had the honor of documenting the wedding of these two kind folks with my friend Erica. All through the morning and into the afternoon the weather forecast didn't look good. It looked even worse as I drove through a downpour to get there.

Upon my arrival at The Inn at Wild Rose Hall however the rain stopped, the clouds eventually parted, and the sun came out leaving the ceremony to take place amongst the trees instead of indoors, and cooling down the late September evening nicely.

Congratulations to Grayson and Matt!

Sure there were severe thunderstorm warnings and flash flooding throughout central Texas, but that did nothing to dampen the spirits of this bride & groom and their guests at their wedding ceremony and reception at Casa Blanca in Round Rock. This wedding was shot—as usual—in support of the multi-talented Shauna Autry Photography.
