Jess & Ryan – Many Glacier Elopement – September 2017

Would you give me just a short background to how you met, your relationship, and engagement? Our first date was a blind date, the result of a set up by mutual friends. They had been bugging us for months to meet because they thought we would get along great! I was in Africa at the time, and Ryan was traveling the world for work. We finally met for the first time at Oktoberfest in Utah. Come to find out we grew up less than 2 miles from each other. We very quickly became two peas in a pod from that first date. Fast forward 4 years, almost to the day from that first date, Ryan proposed to me inView full post »

How to Elope in Glacier National Park

In the northwest corner of Montana sits a hidden gem of the earth.  It is a park so naturally beautiful it is known as the “Crown of the Continent.”  It is North America’s Swiss Alps and in my opinion, there is no better place to be married.  It is jaw-droppingly gorgeous, romantic, and adventurous. I love taking photos everywhere, but I never feel as inspired as I do when I’m in Glacier photographing weddings.  Hopefully you fall in love with this little piece of heaven (it was actually used in the movie What Dreams May Come as heaven) as much as I have.  Here’s a link toView full post »

Brittany & Travis – Glacier National Park Engagement

Brittany and Travis came all the way from Minnesota for engagement photos in Glacier National Park and I hope you can agree that they were well worth the trip! And since they were already here for photos they thought they might as well make the most of their trip and so they camped, explored, hiked, and took advantage of everything that Montana has to offer.  Ok fine, maybe having fun in Montana was their main reason for coming, but engagement photos was definitely up there!   From Brittany: Travis and I met, of all places, in a bar. We are both quite tall and we just lockedView full post »

Kate & Mikal – Glacier National Park Elopement

Kate and Mikal were married July 18 on the north shore of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park with a reception at The Belton Chalet in West Glacier. It’s wedding like these that make me love being a wedding photographer in Glacier National Park.  Small, intimate, romantic. Your closest family and friends surrounding you and sharing in the celebration of your love.  It’s no wonder that small weddings and intimate elopements have become so popular. The bride got ready at the beautiful and historic Belton Chalet in West Glacier, where the reception was also held. Their guests rodeView full post »

Top 5 Spots in Glacier National Park to Elope

Eloping is such a great option for those who want a more low-key, intimate, and budget friendly way to be wed.  And there’s no better place (in my completely biased opinion:) than Glacier!  It’s truly one of the most beautiful places in the world, the recreational opportunities are endless, and although Glacier itself is remote, the surrounding areas cater to tourists and retirees, offering fine dining and lodging. Check out some of my favorite restaurants here. I hope this info and my photos inspire you to get hitched in the 406! (oh, that’s Montana’s area code…that’s right, ONE areaView full post »
