A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of photographIng the Belgrade Montana Countryside Summer Wedding Day Photos of Caitlin & Leo.
I met these two back in October 2021 and have loved getting to discover all the things they value about their relationship together. Earlier this summer, the culmination of our conversations came together when we photographed their custom couples portrait experience in their new hometown of Portland, Oregon.
These two share a common love for the outdoors that runs deep through their relationship. They surf together, run trails, and have even gotten into skate skiing. Whether sipping beers on the back stoop of their home, him serenading her on his guitar, or venturing out to their favorite restaurant, their strong connection, comfort, and playfulness was undeniable on their photo session.
For them, it’s been a lovely ride they couldn’t imagine not taking.
I have been really looking forward to their Belgrade Montana Countryside Summer Wedding Day celebration which was hosted on her parents land. A few weeks back, the day had finally arrived!
Their parents property near north Cottonwood canyon has unobstructed views of Ross Peak and the expansive Bridger Mountains. After the past few months of cooler temperatures and more consistent precipretation, the yellow arrowleaf balsamroot wildflowers were in full bloom. Lush green hillsides dotted with vibrant yellow made for a perfect Montana summertime outdoor setting. Clean and stunning.
Caitlin and Leo wanted their wedding day to feel relaxed with an emphasis on showing their friends and family a good time. Under the guidance of wedding planner Abbey Cook, of Anchor G Gatherings, these two highlighted a colorful, rustic feel on their big day. Caitlin’s dresses for the day were made by her good friend. Their guests dined on the deliciousness provided by their caterer Gather 406 and glorious desserts by Elle’s Belles Bakery. And as the evening went on, funk music from One Night Only encouraged all in attendance to dance the night away. One could not ask for a nicer evening.
Here are some favorite wedding photos I made during our time together. It was such a fun pleasure to celebrate this group. So glad I could be a part of the fun. Congrats to the newlyweds, Caitlin and Leo! -M
