Allison and Dru :: Stunning Outdoor Wedding on Seeley Lake :: Missoula, Montana Photographers

 

missoula, montana wedding photographer

 

Seeley Lake made for a gorgeous background for photographing Allison and Dru’s wedding this year.  With a wedding ceremony conducted by the groom’s sister, tunes from The Lil’ Smokies, and a table full of whiskey, their celebration was a blast!  We had such a fun time spending the day with these two and their friends and family as they celebrated late into the night under a bright, Montana moon.

Fall means family portrait time for Cou Cou Studio.  Jessica headed up to Whitefish this fall to do some photos with Monica Pastor and her family and friends.  It was great follow up to the photographs Jessica did a couple years back of Monica and Teague.  This time there were more loved ones in tow and the fall colors were in full bloom.

It is such a great call when a client who you’ve photographed before rings again.  Kari and her adorable crew were photographed by Jessica a couple years ago.  The boys have gotten so much bigger and this time Jess took the whole crew out to Glacier National Park for family portraits.  They were just in time for the bright oranges and yellows of fall — you can’t beat that on Lake McDonald.  Thanks guys for being such a sweet family.  You kept your photographer laughing the whole time.  What a blast.  :)

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!
