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.

Merry Christmas, a photo booths view!

Merry Christmas, a photo booths view!

I went to see the family over Christmas and of course, I bought the photo booth with! I used it all weekend to get group shots of family and to just document the weekend as well. My family likes to have fun and the photo booth is a good way to capture the energy and goofiness that happens when we get together.

Breakfast in Red Lodge, Mt.

Red Lodge definitely has that small town Montana mountain feeling. It started snowing as the sun was rising and I got this portrait of "Wild Bill" that had the same feel as the morning in the little diner so I thought I would share it.

That's the first half of this wedding story. The cart is also awesome, about 200 years old and sentimental.

The booth can operate in a few different ways but my favorite is as a "gif photo booth". That's the ones that move (Remember the photos in Harry Potter? Well that's a little different but you get the idea.)
