The Cathedral of St. Helena shielded us from the never-ending rain on Abbey and Andrew’s wedding day. I’ve never before been so thankful for about 4 feet wide of dry area to shoot in my life. The beautiful cathedral’s steeples toward over us, giving us just a small area right in front of the entrance […]

This sunset fall engagement session was gorgeous, but we paid for it with 457 mosquito bites. However, this shoot was full of that golden hour glow and it was totally worth itching for days. These images are the ones I dream about when it’s negative temperatures outside during the long cold winter months. Even though […]

Mikayla and Kyle met at Carroll College years ago, and when I heard their campus proposal story, I knew part of their engagement shoot had to happen there too! These two are without a doubt destined to be together. And just from hanging out with them on their shoot, I could feel the excitement and […]

Weddings in Montana are magical. I’ve shot weddings in multiple states, from Alaska, Washington, and Idaho, but nothing compares to Montana. However, I do have to admit that Montana’s mother nature never disappoints and always keep me on my toes. For Brittany and Tyler’s wedding day, we experienced everything but snow. But that didn’t matter […]

Light is Everything To the average eye, there is light looks pretty similar–especially to someone who doesn’t dapple in photography. But, I am here to tell you that light. is. everything. It can make or break an image, and the time of day has a lot to do with it! I always shoot during golden […]

  Champagne and a sunset? Check! It didn’t take long for me to recognize that these two are exactly my type of humans. You know the ones. They are immediately fun to be around, easy to talk to, and up for anything. And by anything, I mean willing to go off the plan and take […]

Montana was showing off for this engagement session. I will admit that I lost feeling in my fingers about 20 minutes into the shoot, but thank goodness for warm cars–especially those with steering wheel heaters. When my camera was having a hard time focusing, I knew it was rather cold! Although you could never tell […]

When I first met Kodi and Jake at a busy Starbucks in downtown Helena, Montana, I immediately knew these were my people. They were exactly what I look for in a future KV Bride & Groom—kind, fun, and genuinely in love!   From the way Kodi smiles at Jake, and the way he’s quietly plays […]

My assistant and I woke up early for our destination wedding in central Montana. The Montana wedding venue, White Raven in Alberton, Montana, is what wedding dreams are made of. The skies were covered with smoke from wildfires, but that didn’t damper our excitement for Caitlin & Cory’s wedding day. We were so excited to […]

When I first met Caitlin for her wedding consultation, I was 34 weeks pregnant and we met at a local brewery. We giggled as I ordered water, but it didn’t matter much, because she was so fun to chat with. She shared how Cory proposed to her in the depths of the wilderness of Montana, […]
