The journey begins with a personalized consultation. I believe that understanding your vision is key to delivering stunning wedding photos that you'll cherish forever. During our initial meeting, we’ll discuss:

  • Wedding Details: Your venue, theme, and any specific shots you have in mind.
  • Photography Style: Whether you prefer candid moments, posed portraits, or a mix of both, I’ll tailor my approach to suit your preferences.

I offer engagement photography as part of my Bozeman wedding photography services. This session is a fantastic way to get comfortable in front of the camera and for us to build rapport. Plus, it provides you with beautiful photos to use for save-the-dates, your wedding website, or simply to cherish.
