Red Lodge, Montana - Snowboard Engagement Session

Red Lodge, Montana - Snowboard Engagement Session

An awesome engagement session up in Red Lodge, Montana. We hit the hill for some snowboarding photos and then downtown Red Lodge to continue our engagement session. They will be getting married this winter in Billings at The Depot. (The Depot is a great venue if you are planning a wedding in Billings.)

I hope you enjoy the photos we got during this this Red Lodge Mountain engagement session in the beautiful state of Montana!

Russell & Cody's Destination Wyoming Wedding.

Russell & Cody's Destination Wyoming Wedding.

It is absolutely a privilege being invited to be a part of your wedding day. This destination Wyoming wedding happened down in Cody. I love being the photographer at destination weddings. The guest list is typically a little smaller and that helps me to focus on the connections between you and your wedding guests. Most importantly, the guest list of destination weddings is made of the most important people to you and they would make it no-matter what. Travel weddings can be more difficult to get to, especially when traveling to areas like Montana or Wyoming in the winter. However they also have the potential for the power and beauty to be introduced to your wedding photography.

Kelly & Sam's Camelot Ranch Wedding, Billings, Mt

Kelly & Sam's Camelot Ranch Wedding, Billings, Mt

Kelly's family has a wedding tradition that I think is absolutely fantastic. All her aunts (like 10 of them) get together and help out when any of the cousins get married. I first saw them roll in during hair and makeup at Ulta Salon. The aunts brought in mimosas, a must for any wedding morning, & breakfast. They also helped the flowers and some of the decorations at Camelot Ranch.

Red Lodge Maternity Session

Red Lodge Maternity Session

Last weekend we headed up to beautiful Red Lodge, one of my favorite areas in Montana, for a Maternity session. Sarah and Brock live in Bozeman and haven't spent much time in the Red Lodge area so they decided to make a mini vaca out of it and stayed in Red Lodge over night. In the late afternoon, we headed to Wild Bill Lake just outside of Red Lodge to create some photos.

The photos turned out stunning!
