I loved everything about Jake and Tiff’s Montana wedding: the loving community of super fun people, the beautiful setting of the Flathead valley, but most of all the kind, cool, wonderful couple at the center of it all. Jake and Tiff are such a great couple and so in love. They were radiant with joy the entire day. As second shooter of this wedding, I had the privilege of assisting my good friend and photography mentor, Eric Connolly. Here are some of my favorites from the day!
Dorothy and Michael are so in sync, it’s like they have been married for years. Their story is classic; they have known each other since they were about 12. I asked them once if it was love at first sight, to which Dorothy responded with a smirk that when they first met she thought Michael was short. This kind of playful levity is characteristic of their dynamic. In addition, they share a peacefulness that is a testimony to the stability of their relationship. These two are meant to be! Congratulations, Dorothy and Michael!
There is so much I could say about Eric and Sarah! They are good friends of mine, and such a wonderful couple! I have been friends with Sarah since 9th grade, back when she went by “Smack” (short for “Smackanackapacky”…long story). All these years she has been my good friend, confidant, and work buddy–we’ve worked at four different jobs together. Eric is a man of many talents: a journalist, singer/songwriter and guitar player in a band, and a talented photographer. In fact, Eric is my photography mentor. He played a large part in encouraging me to become a photographer. It really meant a lot to me to take these photos while back home in Helena, Montana this Christmas.
Sarah and Eric, you two are great together! Thanks for your friendship, encouragement, and kindness. I can’t wait to meet your baby!
