Montana Wedding Inspiration at Star Meadows Ranch, Whitefish, MT

This past fall Katie with Big Day Celebrations invited me to take part in a styled shoot at Star Meadows Ranch to celebrate their recently completed wedding and reception pavilion. It's an extremely cool space on the sprawling property that features open meadows, mountain vistas, and secluded wooded trails that are an amazing setting for a wedding, family reunion, or really any occasion where you might want to get friends and family together, particularly in these times where social distancing is prudent.

A huge thanks to Katie for organizing this and inviting me along, our models Cristine and Josh, and a shout out to the amazing team of vendors that made magic happen on this smokey September evening.

Styled Winter Bridal Portraits, Club Bed Tanning Ad Session

This was a fun shoot for Club Bed Tanning Resort here in Whitefish that happens to be a fellow My Montana Wedding Association member. They needed a new ad to run in the My Montana Wedding magazine to promote their spray tan offerings. They lined up the model and borrowed a dress from Mimi's Bridal in downtown Kalispell and we met up at Whitefish City Beach on a cold, 32-degree day.  It was probably more fun for me than it was for our model Brooke since I was able to keep my hoodie on the whole time and she had to stand there with bare arms.
