Destination Weddings & Honemoons Feature_0002

One of the coolest things is having publications editors reach out to you about including your work in a feature. The fact that they found it somehow. Google. Pinterest. Instagram. Wherever. They found it. And in the sea of millions of wedding images each year they connected to your work. And connected enough to reach out to you and ask to use it. It feels so damn good!

One of the editors at Destination Weddings & Honemoon’s reached out to me a few months ago about the upcoming May/June issue that just went on stands this week. The whole magazine dedicated to epic settings. And then a few weeks later she came back and asked for more images she’d seen for another article! So 3 of my 2015 weddings have some appearances in the brand new issue!!!!

So amazing! Becky & Chris’ epic Iceberg Lake elopement and Michelle & Nathan’s beautiful dinner table (designed by Habitat Events with some help from The Party Store) are on the front page of Destination Weddings & Honeymoon’s guide to getting married in the national parks! Then Carolina & Abe’s sweet boat ride on Swiftcurrent lake in Many Glacier is featured in another article on getaway vehicles!!

Destination Weddings & Honeymoons thank you so much for believing in me and my work to feature it. And thank you to my couples entrusting me with that amazing opportunity! Congratulations you guys! You rocked it!

XOXO

Montana Bride Magazine Cover Glacier National Park Wedding Photographer_0001

OH. MY. GOD. What the what!?!?!

Lindsey & Jason are a dream couple to have had. Honestly sometimes I think every time I’ve photographed them was a dream. It’s too good to be true. But somehow it’s clearly true. From their cozy winter engagement in Whitefish, Montana. To their too-much-fun wedding outside Glacier National Park with dense wildfire smoke that actually looked cool. And then their daring day after 8 mile hike on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii. A real dream. These two are quite special.

Then the Montana Bride Magazine crew asked about featuring their wedding on the cover of the mag. This is the perfect Montana couple to grace the cover. And the magazine is in, it’s here!! And I have no words.

So grateful for Lindsey & Jason and dream crew of vendors to work along side. I’m sooooo happy and excited to see it being featured on a well known Montana wedding & planning magazine. Such an honor. A new highlight and one hell of a way to continue starting 2016 as the best year ever!!!

If you’re interested you can find them on stands across Montana or online HERE!!!

CHEERS to the best year EVER!

XOXO

Missoula MT Backyard Wedding Photo Reception

Fuck yes. Fuck yes.

When you say something twice it just feels like you should say it again. Third times the charm or something. So…

Fuck yessssssssssssssss!

When I first started photographing weddings I thought ‘Man, if I could just be good enough to get one published!’  Then once I had one featured I just wanted more. Then I started making goals to have weddings published by specific publications. And Junebug Weddings was the first to make the list. Right at the top.

I’m obsessed with Junebug. The photographers & images they feature make my creative soul sing. They’re inspiring beyond belief. Then when you actually go to their site the design draws me in. So clean, simple, yet impactful and covered in incredible imagery. And every time I’d look at their site I’d tell myself one day I’m gonna have photos I’ve taken grace these pages.

It isn’t about the details of the wedding or needing to feel validated that my photos are good enough. It’s about the reach to the brides I can identify with across the world and inspire them with beautiful images of love.

In mid-June I showed up at Marlena & Ryan’s wedding. The tables had been put out but that was it. She sat on the porch getting her makeup done, while the boys fished, her dress just hanging in the wine cellar. Even though nothing was really set up and it was just starting to get into motion it already took my breath away. There was something about it. The aura. The vibes. Whatever you want to call it. I knew this was going to be one for the books. And it sure was!!!

At the end of the night I sat in my car. Just sat there. For another 10 minutes. Just watching them so happy, so deeply in love, so drawn to each other and still dancing under the lights strung up in the front yard and I felt like this was the one. This was the one for Junebug Weddings.

I submitted it and just a couple days later they emailed a response. And right there in the subject line….

Your wedding has been selected for publication!

Cue the dancing and jumping and giddy laughing and screaming! For a solid 30 minutes before I even opened the email. Even now I’m still that excited.

On Sunday Marlena & Ryan’s incredible wedding was featured!!! I can’t thank Junebug enough for accepting this wedding and spreading it across the internet, Facebook & Pinterest. *hugs*

Marlena & Ryan congrats you two. You had one of the best and most memorable weddings of all time. And I mean that!!! Thank you for giving me the honor of photographing it!

XOXO

Jacilyn M Featured Luxe Mountain Weddings Magazine_0005

Ohmygosh. The first time I ever had a wedding published on a blog… albeit a small wedding blog… I fist pumped feeling like I MADE IT!!!!!!!!! WHEW!!

Fact…. I still do that, every single time one of my couples gets to grace the sites or pages of publications. In the middle of the summer I find it hard to find the time to send images into publications. With so many weddings and travel it takes me a little while to get them submitted. But I know where I want to send them. After every wedding I know where I think they will fit best and have a short list of 2 maybe 3 publications I’d try with that wedding.

I’ve had a few weddings featured on Luxe Mountain Weddings, even had bride’s book me after reading their blog. I thought it might be a good fit for LMW. Just whenever I could get to submitting things 😉 After posting Carolina and Abe’s wedding to my blog the editor of LMW saw it and emailed herself asking to have it for the magazine and that was a heck yes from me! A few weeks later there it was. In print. In my mailbox.

It’s SO exciting having images featured. But damn the way my heart pitter patters when I can see it in print. Touching and feeling the pages. AH!!!

Thank you Luxe Mountain Weddings for featuring their wedding. It was an honor to photograph it! And a big congrats to Carolina & Abe and their family!!! YAY!
