I had the pleasure of meeting up with Brandon and Natalie the other evening for their St Ignatius Montana engagement photos. They had just gotten in to Montana the day before (they live in Florida), and I was so eager to meet them in person as we’d only spoken by phone prior to our session and while discussing their wedding plans.
As I knew we would, we all had a blast making images for them that evening. Brandon and Natalie are truly, madly in love, and it was so sweet to watch them together, full of deep affection and smiles and gentle touches and plenty of laughter too. We wandered amongst the trees, finding perfect pockets of evening light, and were treated to a great view of the mountains behind us shifting colors as the sun went down.
Brandon and Natalie even ventured into the water a bit, and though it was rocky and their feet were bare, I’d say it was totally worth it to catch that light upon the mountains and reflecting down onto the water’s surface, turning it a lovely orangey-pink.
We finished the evening off perfectly with beers and cheers to a fun shoot (and a head’s up from a passerby alerting us to bear activity in the woods down the hill). So we wrapped things up, shared a few more laughs and got even more excited about their upcoming wedding day, which is happening this coming Saturday!
Brandon and Natalie! Thanks again for such a delightful evening – it was so fun to finally get to hang out with you two in person (and your mom, too, Brandon!), and I am SO very much looking forward to your wedding this Saturday! Yay for you two! Yay for love!
