Horses, Dogs, & Alpacas ~ Montana Dog & Animal Photography

Two horses, five alpacas, and two Great Pyrenees dogs. What more could I want to see all together? Love, purpose (the dogs live with the alpacas to protect them from mountain lions), and interspecies friendship.

Alpacas are kind of hard to resist - see my previous session with Icicle here.

ISPWP Contest Winner! ~ Montana Wedding Photography

Okay, only 20th place, but the ISPWP (International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers) contest is world-wide (over 90 countries represented) and only 8 out of the winners in this category were shot at weddings in the U.S.  So I'm really pleased to have had my photo selected and included amongst so many incredible images.

For more images from this wedding see the complete blog post here and click here for the other winners in this contest.

Craig & Mandy ~ Montana Dog & Pet Photography

A man and his dog. Craig and his rescued lab-greyhound mix, Mandy, have been together since 2001, five years before he and Brittany got together and married. Brittany wanted to celebrate their bond and purchased a gift certificate from me for a portrait session of the two of them for Craig's birthday. It was hard to resist adding some time in for the whole family so jealous Belle (who was a holiday gift for Brittany from Craig and rescued from the Humane Society of NW Montana) got to get some on camera play time finally too.

Sugar High ~ Montana Dog & Pet Photography

Have I mentioned lately that my dog and muse, Sugar, is, as my polite friends tell me, a little exhuberant?

Allison & Paul's Wedding Album ~ Montana Wedding Photography

Allison and Paul were married at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ, and will be getting their gorgeous Queensberry album shipped to them this week.  This is an 11x14 photo front pagemount album with ivory mattes on ivory pages. The cover is the understated gold buckram with the photo of their choice (although it was my favorite too!) filling half the page.  Thanks to Riley for being so patient for their kiss.

For more images from their wedding see my original blog post which includes an award winning image from the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) or you can view the slideshow below for their complete album.

North Fork Faces ~ Montana Documentary Photography

Returned to Polebridge and the North Fork of the Flathead River this weekend.  I went there last year and had such an amazing experience meeting the talented Peter Moore and being in the only town in the lower 48 that runs off a generator.  It is remote but filled with life with both smooth and furry faces and creatively inspired ones too.  Click here to experience last year's journey.
