Hockey Rink Engagement Session | Great Fall, MT | Christina + Cameron Engaged

An amazing backstory of this engagement session that was written by the bride -
"We picked the Great Falls Americans hockey rink to have our engagement photos because of how our engagement started. Cameron is a huge hockey fan (the Colorado Avalanche) and wanted to make his proposal something very special and unique. After the game, Cameron brought me down to the glass and said: "Now every time we watch an Avs game on tv we can see this spot and remember how amazing this moment is." He got down on one knee and said "I can't think of a more perfect place than my favorite my place to ask my favorite person in the world to be my wife. Will you marry me?" It was so unexpected coming from someone who never wanted to get married and that some how there was something about me that changed his mind. I was so surprised and excited of course I said yes!! We were extremely excited to find such a fantastic photographer to run with our idea and be able to include my som in our photos. Special thank you to Ariel Dawn photography and Jim and the guys at the Great Falls Americans Ice Plex for making the perfect engagement shoot possible!"

Courtney and Matthew | Fairfield, Montana | Engagement Session

Courtney and Matt live in Reno, Nevada at the moment, and contacted me about doing an engagement session at Matt's family ranch in Fairfield Montana during their visit. 

The property is a very 'rustic' setting, with barns, fields,  mountain background and even a farm cat. Any cowboy's dream place to be. We met a little before sunset to capture their love under the beautiful big sky of Montana. Their session was full of laughs, and cowboy boots. 

Congrats to this fantastic couple.

Montana Engagement Photographer | Mattingly Engagement

For Matt and Carolyn's engagement session we went out to her dad's incredible property. As you can see it would have been a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony, but alas, it's so deep in the woods they wouldn't be able to get all their loving guests out there. 
Their four dogs, Mr Bean, Luna, Brady, and Toby, didn't find any problems though!
Together we got to capture their full family love in this epic scenery. I love they way Carolyn did her hair and her purple dress against the lush green grass of this forest meadow. Congratulations you two!
