Megan & Ryan ~ Montana Wedding Photography

Ok, here's my first Montana wedding! This lovely California couple came to Bigfork, Megan's childhood summer home, to get married at The Flathead Lake Lodge. I couldn't have gotten more lucky to have such an amazing couple and location for my first wedding here. A bit different from NJ weddings with the amazing lake location and lodge vibe but my favorite thing that said "you are not in NJ anymore" was The Cold Creek Band, clearly NOT a tuxedoed orchestra, who really knew how to play and entertain this crowd that clearly had a wonderful time.

Elk Season ~ Montana Documentary Photography

Coming to terms with the culture of my new home in Montana. My neighbor Jesse, born and raised here in Bigfork, returned from a 10 day successful bow-hunting excursion into The Bob Marshall Wilderness with his friend Johnny. They packed in with 4 horses and didn't see another human for the 10 days in. Jesse's kids were really excited to have their dad home. Jealous that I couldn't go with them to document The Bob and the hunt, I hung out while they unpacked the truck.
