Even a Bozeman Montana winter snowstorm couldn’t dampen the spirits of Ali and Josh during their recent portrait photography experience.
Ali and Josh are seniors at Montana State University and besides finishing up school and internships, they have continued to grow their relationship. After meeting them at this year’s Montana Wedding Event, we got to talking about things they love about each other and the activities they enjoy doing together.
Hearing their story and learning about their relationship, they have found a shared interest in playing ice hockey. We decided to incorporate that shared passion for their recent portrait photography experience.
The last few weeks in Bozeman have had frigid temperatures and lots of snow. This meant most of the outdoor ice rinks around town were buried under a few feet of snow. We elected to head over to Bogert Park in downtown Bozeman, Montana to take advantage of its covered, outdoor ice rink.
After a fun hockey-themed photo session, we noticed a snow storm coming in. We shifted gears, took off the ice skates and went for a tromp around the park in the deep snow. These two had a great attitude throughout and their playful love for each other really comes through in their photographs.
Here are some of my favorites photographs from my time with them. Big things are on the horizon for these two and I couldn’t be more happy for them. -M
