Central Montana Couples Session | Cindy & Lane

Central-Montana-Couples-Photographer-5.jpg

This is the third couples session in Central Montana I’ve had the opportunity to do with Cindy and Lane in my time as a photographer! It’s been so neat to capture them as their family grows (they have two of the sweetest dogs now) and as their love grows, too, of course!

For their summer couples session, we were originally planning on exploring in Augusta but when flooded roads foiled our “Plan A,” they were so go-with-the-flow and did a little adventuring with me into the Lewis and Clark National Forest in Central Montana for “Plan B.”

I totally love how their tattoos photographed! Definitely makes me want to go out and get another…

I helped Cindy coordinate their first outfit around Lane’s flamingo shirt (shoutout to TJMaxx for the amazing find)! I love the opportunity that more casual outfits give for clients to really let-loose and be playful with one another. It’s always encouraged to bring two outfits to your sessions if you’d like!

For Cindy and Lane’s second outfit, she wore a beautiful, white two-piece dress from Lulus that looked absolutely stunning on her! We saw this view of the setting sun lighting up the mountains a beautiful shade of pink just as I was about to turn on the road to head home and we all ran across the street in excitement!

We couldn’t have asked for a better Central Montana evening for their couples session in the mountains and I am so thankful for the relationship I’ve developed with Cindy and Lane in my years of working with them.

Central Montana Engagement Photos at Holter Lake

Holter Lake was such a beautiful setting for Cassy and Taylor’s engagement photos in central Montana. The light was golden and warm and all things that you want from a summer evening! Their love seemed so effortless and natural and it was such a pleasure to work with the two of them during this exciting time!

If you missed part one of Andrew and Victoria’s adventure session in Glacier National park beginning at Avalanche Lake, check it out here!

After we hiked to and from Avalanche Lake in the beginning of their adventurous Glacier National Park engagement session – Andrew, Victoria, and I then headed down the road to continue their session along the shore of Lake McDonald.

It was so much fun to capture their love and connection on the shore of such an iconic lake in the park. We began at one of the pull offs along Going to the Sun Road headed back towards the west entrance of Glacier National Park. I absolutely loved the fun vibes of her outfit and the beautiful tones created by the soft evening sunlight!

Our next and final stop during their Lake McDonald engagement session was at a beautiful dock in Apgar Village. It was a miracle that we had the entire dock to ourselves on a Saturday evening – it’s usually full of people soaking in the views and enjoying the sunset!

Memorial Falls + Sluice Boxes State Park Engagement Photos – Molly + Trenton

Molly and Trenton’s love story is one for the books. They leaned into on their faith and love for each-other and it led them to moving to the beautiful state of Montana together. One winter day, Molly and Trenton were hiking to Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park. Once they arrived to the shore of the lake, Trenton proposed to Molly and, as you guessed, she said yes!

Molly and I agreed that their engagement session here in Central Montana should be adventure-filled, just like the day Trenton proposed.

We began the session with a hike to Memorial Falls in Neihart, Montana. This is one of my favorite places to visit in Central Montana in the winter and the waterfall is simply stunning when it’s frozen over.

We definitely slipped our way up to this beautiful location but it was beyond worth it to get some adventurous Montana engagement photos!

After we wrapped up our adventure at Memorial Falls, we headed back towards town to another one of my favorite spots – Sluice Boxes State Park. We had so much fun running around and laughing in such a beautiful location and the weather was simply beautiful!

Molly mentioned that Trenton would love to incorporate his truck into some pictures so we finished off the session with them snuggled up in the bed of his pick-up. I loved getting to know the two of them so that we could incorporate meaningful elements into their photos and it really allowed me to capture photos that showcased their personalities and relationship!

I loved capturing Molly & Trenton’s engagement photos at Memorial Falls and Sluice Boxes State Park – it was the perfect winter adventure and was such a fun way to capture their love for one another.

River's Edge Trail Couple Session – Great Falls, MT – Brooke + Andrew

We have been so spoiled by the weather here this winter in Great Falls, Montana. Brooke and Andrew had the most beautiful golden sunlight for their couple’s session – it was a photographer’s dream come true! They brought their sweet dog, Bodhi, along with them and he was the most photographic pup.

I loved chasing the golden hour light with these two! It’s a miracle that Brooke was able to so effortlessly wear this dress on a Montana winter day – but we’ll take this beautiful weather without a bit of complaint.
