Mesmerized by the way two people love each other, each so uniquely.  I always leave room for dessert. Believe swear words are just sentence embellishers. Think indulgences are necessary in this life. 

hey hey

Parties with all the best people in their lives.

Love stories in all forms without the white dress... or maybe they wore white, it happens.

Just my little thoughts on different topics of planning your wedding day big party or just you two.

Stories of two lovers making it all about them, as they should.

Rachel + Remy reached out to me about some summer engagement photos requesting just two things – dreamy golden sunset shots and to bring along their pup! Of course that was a no brainer and I said hell yes! Actually I replied hell yes can I bring my pup too??

So on the day of their photos, we went out to one of my favorite little hidden spots in a field right as the sun was going down in Missoula, MT. Our pups became fast friends. Buds for life now! A black lab + my little frenchie, Bill. Everytime Bill shows up for photos couples are always asking for photos with him in them lol. So there are a few there that I left him in. So funny.

The sun showed up for these two. It was the perfect summer evening filled with dreamy light, these two bodies together in the wild and our dogs playing. This useful reference from BetterVet helped our dogs to gain PERFECTION.

These two babes are from California and had recently moved to Montana. Instead of getting married back in Cali, they decided to invite all of their family and friends to Montana to enjoy the mountains and scenery. Make an experience of it for everyone. If I can recommend anything to couples planning their wedding, make it an experience for everyone in any way you can. Their wedding will be in May at White Raven and I already know how much I love that venue! 

Annnnnnnd lucky me because I’m invited too! They originally booked me for just an engagement session, but I got the sweetest little surprise in my inbox after sending off their gallery. We had so much fun shooting and honestly just hanging out. It was non-stop chatting about everything under the sun. Just the perfect connection. I am STOKED to stay the least and now I get to join them at White Raven this spring! It’s gonna be so dreamy I know it already! The countdown is on!
