Jesse + Tabatha :: {Huntley, MT Wedding Photographer}

For being a photographer who loves color, you better believe that I was beyond excited to photograph this colorful couple amongst the changing Autumn leaves! I mean, just look at Tabatha’s gorgeous red hair!! Chancey’s Event Center in Huntley, MT was the perfect venue for this wedding!

Intimate Wedding in Huntley, MT

The thing I love about smaller weddings is that they are much more intimate and allow the couple to enjoy the day, free of any stress. The bride & groom aren’t running around like crazy trying to visit with every guest, they’re simply living in the moment. Jesse & Tabatha wanted a fun, chill day with their close family & friends and they got it! It was such a pleasure working with this couple and I’m happy I got to capture their special day!

I love capturing this moment when a girl sees herself as a bride for the first time and a guy becomes a groom!

I love photographing weddings at Chancey’s Event Center in Huntley, Montana!

The couple made the majority of the decorations themselves and the turquoise & brown colors looked perfect in this setting.

The Wilson Family :: {Billings, MT Family Photographer}

These guys have a special place in my heart because they were my first clients when I started my business back in 2010. They trusted me to take their Christmas card photo and saw the potential in me as a family photographer. Ever since then, Jamee has referred so many wonderful clients to me. She has helped build my photography business into what it is today. I am forever grateful for the love and support that she has given me!

We ventured to Riverfront Park for their family session and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect backdrop! The leaves were a bright red that matched perfectly with their outfits. Henley & Deakin flashed their cutest smiles and were a joy to work with. It’s always fun to see how much they change each year. I LOVE REPEAT CLIENTS!!!

Teal + Justin :: {Billings, MT Engagement Photographer}

Every engagement session that I do makes me enjoy them more & more! The pure love that two people have for each other resinates during this time of their lives. Just the excitement of being able to call each other “fiancé” is unlike any other joy. Smiles beam from their face as they walk hand in hand and when they kiss, sometimes I have to remind them to stop!

All of this rang true during Teal & Justin’s engagement session. Their love is natural & easy, just like their personalities. They can be playful & romantic all at the same time. I know a perfect match when I see one and I believe these two were definitely meant to be together. I’m looking forward to their wedding next July!

Lindsey :: {Billings, MT Senior Portrait Photographer}

This senior is not afraid to be who she really is! Lindsey is a strong-willed girl who knows what she wants. She’s got a good head on her shoulders and has a fun personality to go along with it! We got to know each other during her senior portrait session and I was amazed at how willing she was to do whatever I asked. She ventured out into grassy fields at Norm’s Island and even changed outfits right in the middle of a busy street! There’s no fear in this girl!

Even though Lindsey’s not quite sure what the future has in store for her after high school, she seems to have a really supportive family who’s got her back every step of the way. I wish her all the luck in this final year at Senior High!

Cody + Kristi :: {Billings, Montana Wedding Photography}

It’s not too often that I walk into a wedding already knowing the majority of the people there, but this was a special one. I photographed the sister of the bride’s wedding back in June, and so it was great being reunited with everyone again. They are all pros at this point after doing two weddings in one year! From the flowers, to the wooden signs at the ceremony, every detail that you see pictured was hand-crafted by someone in the family. What a talented group of people!

Cody & Kristi have been counting down to this special day for a very long time! I’ve never seen two people more excited to get married. They chose not to see each other until Kristi walked down the aisle and the anticipation fueled the excitement of the day leading up to that very moment. When they looked at each other they knew they had made the right choice in picking a soulmate. They were beaming from ear to ear as they said “I do” and then came time to celebrate! All their family and friends partied the night away at the Elks Lodge and showed their love for the happy couple. Even though it was a little windy during their ceremony at Riverfront Park… okay, REALLY windy, it turned into an amazing Autumn day filled with love, laughter and so much joy! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Lux!
