MEET US

We are a husband & wife photography team based in Montana, specializing in weddings for romantic and adventurous couples. We’re passionate about marriage, adventure, and dreaming BIG! When we’re not shooting weddings you can find us exploring in the mountains, traveling to new cities, binge watching our favorite shows on Netflix, or hanging out with our overly energetic dog!

Personal

In our personal posts you can expect to find stories of our life, travels, adventures, wishes, hopes, dreams, and some open letters written to each other. We want to share about our own marriage, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Along with being open about our biggest goals and aspirations, greatest fears and struggles, and encourage you to keep pursuing your own version of success.

These shoes are dirty, barely resembling their original vivid color anymore. They are worn down, scuffed up, and weathered. They get frequent baths from being covered in mud. They’re that perfect kind of old that fits in just the right way - molded to the exact shape of your foot. There are a couple spots starting to tear, and some stains that will never wash out. But oh, the stories they could tell...

Do you ever make a mental assessment of your life and note all the things that could be better, bigger, prettier, newer? Maybe you wish you could just get a new car, finally. Maybe you wish you had a Pinterest-worthy kitchen. Maybe you look in the mirror and wish YOU could be better, prettier. Have you ever done this?? Because I have. A lot. I remember the day we closed on our condo, at the ages of 23 and 25, we got the keys to a home that was officially ours. And while we popped the champagne and celebrated, I vividly remember walking around and thinking, “This will do, for now.” I took note of all the things that weren't perfect: the yard was small, it was only a one car garage, the master bedroom didn’t have a walk-in closet, the kitchen was dark wood instead of all white, the…

I’m going to get real serious with you today friends… We’re diving into our FAVORITE TV shows to watch together! Brandon and I love adventuring, more than anything. We love traveling, exploring new places, and trying new things. But we’re also both homebodies who love quiet nights on our couch, cuddled up with our crazy dog and a bowl of popcorn while we just hang out together. In the verrry early days of our relationship, we bonded over a shared love of the show Lost. We binge-watched all 6 seasons in just a few months so that we could watch the finale air live. And since then we’ve watched a lot of shows together, but only a few will go down as our favorites.     Our Top 10 Shows to watch Together

One of my goals for 2017 is to read at least one book per month, ideally more. So I thought I would start sharing my recaps when I finish each one! Preface: nearly every book I read is my “favorite” right after I finish it… it’s the same with new songs, movies, etc.. And this last one was no different! Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by Shauna Niequist was exactly what I needed starting this new year and season of life! Last year I chose the word “hustle” as my word of the year - more on words of the year later, but a full year of hustling hard left me 100% frantic, overwhelmed, and burned out. I knew I needed a change. So that’s what I set out to do in 2017! And this book was the absolute perfect way…

“A dark cloud. That’s the only way I can explain it right now. Every day, there’s a dark cloud that follows me around. Some days the sun shines a little more fiercely and pierces through the cloud, and I feel the warmth of the sun and it makes me feel alright. Content. Even hopeful. But other days the cloud is more intense, and everything feels grey in its shadow. Other days the cloud lets loose and dumps rain, with hurricane forces. On all those days, I’m smiling happily on the outside. How? Why? I don’t know. I just know that regardless of the thoughts in my head, and the feelings in my heart, thinking that someone might find those things out is the most terrifying thing of all.”   That was the beginning of a verrry long email I sent to Brandon last December; the day I finally told him…
