Stacy and Eric :: Greenough, Montana :: Montana Destination Wedding Photographer

Missoula Wedding Photographer

Sometimes there are events that are truly something special because of the people that are there.  It could be anywhere — by a river, a family homestead, or even a luxury resort.  The point is that while the location may be beautiful it’s really who’s there together that makes it something special.  Eric and Stacy’s wedding in Greenough, Montana was one of those kinds of events. Each person we chatted with between taking photos was so genuinely nice.  You could just feel the love everyone had for each other and the bride and groom.  I think Lido and I can both agree it feels like we hit the jackpot when we photograph these kinds of events.
A beautiful ceremony and reception in the Lubrecht Forest in Greenough, Montana went off without a hitch despite unusually cool temperatures for this summer day.  A couple rain drops didn’t dampen anyone’s festivities.  In fact — it seemed all the more beautiful.

We had the chance to photograph a stunning and sweet wedding in Greenough, Montana just outside of Missoula recently.  We are still editing through the shoot now but here’s a little preview.  You can beat a kiss under an umbrella in an aspen grove.  Thanks you two — more to come.

Missoula, Montana Senior Portraits : Noel Normand

Earlier this summer Lido took some time in downtown Missoula to photograph Noel, a rising senior at Frenchtown High School.  Noel wanted photos with more of an urban feel and the alleys of Missoula are perfect for that.  The downtown parking deck made for a fun backdrop too and kept everyone dry from the torrential rain that swept thru just after they started taking photos.  After the rain everyone headed down to Higgins for pictures in front of the iconic Wilma Theater and then from the Higgins Street Bridge.  Such a fun night!  Thanks to Noel for being a great sport and stunning model.  Have a great senior year!

Whitefish, Montana Family Photographers : The Ramsdell Family

It’s always fun when the phone rings, the person on the other end is super friendly, and then you find out they are from Atlanta, Georgia.  Especially when they are calling about photos in Montana.  We love meeting new people from all over but especially from people who live in Jessica’s hometown.  They understand humidity.  They know how good friend okra can really taste.  And they are normally SUPER friendly and just as excited as we are about meeting other Southern folks.  The Ramsdell family came out to Montana for a vacation and Jessica photographed them on the shores of Whitefish Lake.  It was a beautiful day that made you want to jump in the cool water once the photos were done.  Thanks so much Ramsdell family for having us capture you in Big Sky Country!  Come back soon!

Bozeman, Montana Wedding Photographers: Annie and Matt Hamilton

Earlier this summer we had the chance to drive over to Bozeman and photograph Annie and Matt tie the knot at St. James Episcopal Church downtown.  These two were so much fun to photograph and didn’t let the rain that drenched the church the  morning of their wedding day get them down.  It’s always a treat for us when clients are up for anything and Annie and Matt let us make the most of their portrait time.  Their reception under a beautiful sunset at Gallatin River Hideaway was filled with laughter, love and family.  Wedding Coordinator extraordinaire Katalin Green left no detail to chance — everything was simply beautiful.  Thanks so much for having Cou Cou Studio photograph your wedding!  What a treat for us.

Donlan Family Photos :: Missoula Family and Baby Photographer :: Atlanta Photo Session

Missoula Family Photographer

 

The Donlan Family is frankly fantastic.  A couple years back Jessica photographed them when they welcome their first son Porter to the family.  Now new baby Jack is keeping everyone busy.  Hanging out in the backyard and soaking up some Georgia sunshine was a perfect recipe for photographing this active crew.  With trees to climb, room for the dog to run, and shade to keep everyone cool, it was the perfect family photo spot.  Thanks Donlans!  Looking forward to seeing you next time we are in town!

O’Neal Family Photos :: Missoula Family Photographer :: Atlanta Photo Sessions

Missoula_Family_Photographer_Atlanta_0004
The O’Neal family is always so much fun to photograph.  On her recent trip back to Atlanta, Georgia, Jessica had the chance to photograph them again.  A couple years back they welcomed Hollis to the family and it was fun to see how much she has grown and how big her little brother has gotten.  Last time around we captured an image of everyone under the magnolia tree in their front yard and we were able to do the same thing again this time with all four of them.  Despite a torrential downpour everything for this photo session worked out.  Thanks O’Neal family for a wonderful time including bubbles, magnolia blooms, and a lot of spinning!  Ya’ll rock.
