Cary + Stacie @ Bridger Bowl, Montana {Bozeman Wedding Photographer}

I had the distinct pleasure of assisting my friend and fellow photographer, Rab Cummings, photograph a wedding this past weekend.  I had been hoping I would one day get the opportunity to be “second shooter” at a wedding and I was thrilled that I got to have my first experience doing so for such a fabulous couple in a fabulous location with a fabulous photographer.  The wedding was at Bozeman’s local ski area, Bridger Bowl, set half way up the mountain at the resort’s Upper Lodge.  The details were perfect!  The lovely couple found the perfect balance between elegant and relaxed.  I’ll start by setting the scene. . .

And then follow with the flow of the afternoon.  First, of course, the bride gets ready. . .

. . . then heads to a beautiful spot to wait for her groom for a “first look” on the wedding day.

As he came down the hill and they caught a glimpse of each other, it was a tender moment and the love just emanates between them.  They were glowing and I felt so honored to be able to capture these special moments for them.  When you see a couple in love, on their wedding day, you can’t help but reminisce about your own wedding day and your heart just starts soaring!

. . . which, of course, had to involve the ski lift (they were getting married at a ski resort, after all!).

And then they retreated to the lodge to relax with the wedding party as their guests began to arrive, mingling and enjoying cocktails.  The wedding soon began and it was a touching and joyous ceremony, and everyone from the bride to the wedding party to the guests couldn’t keep from smiling!

Congratulations, Cary and Stacie!  I am so appreciative to you and to Rab for letting me be a part of your special and beautiful day!

Great job! But are you sure you really want to do weddings and deal with bridezillas?
