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.

These two are so incredibly in love + there isn’t a person on the planet who can deny their connection. A rando on the street would say they were made for each other only seeing them for 1 second. They have the best hearts and surround themselves with the most amazing people.

Trina dreamed of a winter wonderland wedding at her family’s house by the river outside of Missoula MT. A ceremony in the trees with the white snow everywhere and then a clear tent to dance the night away in. Well when the day arrived the weather had another plan!! The temps dropped so low it was crazy cold so last minute they decided to keep everyone comfortable to move everything into the tent and do the ceremony and reception in there. It turned out perfectly!! They had the sweetest vows as their pup laid right down the aisle haha. He actually stepped on the back of Trina’s dress and veil as she was walking down the aisle to Shane, it was hilarious! Love their dog being a part of the whole day!

They looked absolutely incredible, toasts were had, a live band, dancing all night, some singing + playing from Shane + his best man! Mo Club came out and made us burgers in a snowstorm! It was epic!

The day went by in a flash and we came up with this idea of snagging lanterns from the walk way and shooting out in the trees after the sun had gone down since they didn’t get to have their ceremony down there and it was so fun. Such a good little challenge to work outside of normal daylight and sunset but to create in a way we don’t normally and the images are so beautiful! I wanna try this again!

I spent 3 days photographing these two and the events leading up to their day and their day after brunch and I just adore them, their family + friends. I wanna do it all over again! Can’t wait to photograph these babes again this summer for something else 😉 Just wait!!
