A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Paradise Valley Montana Wedding day of Brita and John along the banks of the Yellowstone River.
Unlike most of the weddings I photograph, these two opted for my two-hour elopement collection where I focused on documenting their wedding ceremony and making portraits of their friends and family.
While perhaps one of the shortest wedding days I’ve ever photographed, Brita and John’s wedding celebration was still just as fun.
These two had all of their wedding guests meet at this really cool VRBO rental south of Livingston, Montana in Paradise Valley right on the river. The long grassy property had room for their hundred guests and had great access to interesting geography the wedding couple and I could explore during their portrait.
As the sunset over the mountains, their family and friends circled around them for their intimate ceremony then the celebration evolved into a riverside pig roast. For a DIY small wedding, this VRBO worked really well.
In my brief time with them, I had so much fun getting to know them and their tribe. Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding. It was a true pleasure to be able to document their union. Congrats to the newlyweds! -M
