Oh, how I adore rock the dress sessions! They are just so much fun – relaxed, beautiful, playful, creative, and most importantly they take place outside of the wedding day timeline to allow more flexibility with image-making. Don’t get me wrong, I love making photos during wedding days too, and Kristeen and Colt’s day was certainly no exception, but there’s something just so special about doing these types of portraits without time constraints, and simply allowing yourself to go with the flow of the day and just follow the light and let it do its thing.
So that’s what we did. It happened to be a very smoky day since wildfires in Canada, Washington and Oregon were pushing smoke into the Missoula valley, but that didn’t stop us from wandering around in the woods. We had quite a bit of fun with these dandelion weed things (we’ll pretend they aren’t weeds…and maybe they aren’t? Any botanist-minded folks willing to enlighten me as to what this doodads are?), Kristeen and Colt were both willing to toss their shoes to the side and meander barefoot for a while (seriously – there’s something so beautiful about a couple walking barefoot together…amiright?), and Colt picked Kristeen a true Montana wildflower bouquet (what could be more perfect?).
We laughed, we smiled, we ran, we soaked in the beauty, we had a heckuva darn good time. And we got to play with those GIANT dandelion things.
Such a fun evening! Thanks again you two. :) Anytime you want to wander in the woods with me, just let me know.
On the docket: more portraits and weddings! Stay posted!
