Tom + Jenna :: {Billings, MT Engagement Photographer}

I knew that I was going to have a blast with Tom & Jenna during their engagement session! I’ve known this couple for a few years now and we’ve done some family photo sessions together, but I couldn’t hide my excitement when they asked me to be their wedding photographer! Let’s just say we have a similar sense of humor so we have a lot of fun together.

We were cracking jokes the entire session but in between the laughs, I witnessed Tom & Jenna’s strong connection as a couple. They are definitely made for each other and you can tell they would do anything for the other person. They have each other’s backs are are a team in this relationship. Not only are they drop-dead gorgeous, they have the best personalities and know how to make every moment enjoyable. I can’t wait for their wedding next June!!!!

Billings Depot Photographer :: {Dawn + Trevor}

Dawn & Trevor’s wedding was an enchanting and romantic event held at the Billings Depot. The details were definitely worth swooning over and so I couldn’t help but photograph every little thing. From the soft pastel flowers to the elegant decor, everything about this wedding was gorgeous!

The most beautiful moment of the day was definitely when Dawn & Trevor had their first look. Nervous energy quickly turned into big smiles & happy tears. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. The couples’ deep love for one another became very apparent at that moment and I believe that time stood still for Dawn & Trevor. This was the day they had been waiting for and they were about to meet at that same altar in a few hours to become husband & wife. Trevor couldn’t keep his eyes off Dawn all day, but who could blame him because she look absolutely breath-taking.

Dawn & Trevor’s wedding party was compiled of family and friends who weren’t afraid to celebrate and have a good time! I was highly entertained by all the kids at this wedding because they had some killer dance moves! All in all I will say that this wedding was one for the books and it set the bar very high for other couples. I wish nothing but the best for Mr. & Mrs. Sindelar and love that I got to be a part of their special day!

Matthew :: {Billings, MT Senior Portrait Photographer}

Matthew came all the way from Miles City for his senior portrait session and I’m so glad that he did! I took his sister’s senior portraits last year and I absolutely loved visiting with his mom, so I’m glad she tagged along with us. Matthew is definitely a triple threat! He plays golf & baseball and not only is he a good-looking kid, he has the best personality and witty sense of humor to go along with it. We had a blast during his session! I know that this kid has a lot of good things in store for him in the future!

Whitney + Chad :: {Montana Wedding Photographer}

Oh Red Lodge, you never seem to disappoint me! I would do a wedding there every weekend if I could. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to photograph Whitney & Chad’s wedding at Rock Creek Resort. They were an absolute dream to work with and are one of those couples that I feel like I’ve known my whole life. They both have the sweetest personalities and they appreciate my sarcastic humor… I’m glad that someone thinks I’m funny!

I always tell couples that if they have an outgoing bridal party they’re going to end up with a ton of photos, well, that was very true with this group. I had the hardest time narrowing photos down just to show some sneak peeks! Every person at this wedding was so entertaining and incredibly photogenic. We were laughing the whole day — even when it poured with rain and we were all stuck under a pine tree to wait it out. Nothing could rain out this parade! The sun came out just in time for the ceremony and lead way to an all night celebration. I didn’t ever want to leave because I was having so much fun photographing this crew!

Whitney & Chad, you are surrounded by some pretty awesome people who support you in everything you do. It’s evident in your smiles that your love is natural & sincere. You guys belong together and I’m so happy that I could capture the start of your life together as husband & wife. Congratulations!

J.J. + Jacki :: {Montana Wedding Photographer}

Don’t get me wrong, I love big weddings, but sometimes smaller weddings seem to be the way to go. Just a bunch of laid-back folks gathering together to celebrate the marriage two fun-loving people. Jacki & J.J. did it their way and I definitely think that was the right way! They were married at Rock Creek Resort in Red Lodge, MT and it was absolutely perfect!
