In 2022, I was invited to photograph Stone Family Field Trip for Allen Stone, where I proceeded to meet some of the most amazing, genuine, music-loving people I’ve ever come across. I returned to Stone Family Field Trip this year, garnering all new friends, bands to be a fan of, and continued relationships with the fun people I’d met the year before. Sometimes, my wedding bookings come from what I would consider the strangest of places and in this case, it was born out of a relationship with my now friend Marquie and her two beautiful twins, who I met at the festival (and who are absolutely Allen Stone super-fans, but aren’t we all?).
When Marquie wrote me months after SFFT about photographing her wedding, I was absolutely ecstatic. When I learned that they were holding a Glacier National Park wedding, well, I was ecstatic times a million. Glacier National Park has always been on my list of places to visit, but due to the remoteness and the difficulty of traveling to Montana (honestly, it’s easier to get to Europe from Reno y’all), I simply hadn’t made the time. Thanks to Marquie and her now husband, Joshua, I had the opportunity to take 10 days and explore the wild remoteness that western Montana has to offer and I’m here to encourage you to do the same. Glacier National Park is STUNNING, not to mention, it’s an unparalleled backdrop for a ridiculously gorgeous wedding portrait. It’s got majestic peaks, breathtaking mountains that stack on each other as far as the eye can see, expansive lakes, wilderness for days. Whether you consider yourself to be an outdoorsey adventurous go-getter or simply stick to the road more traveled, it’s still an unforgettable experience. If you’re interested in a Glacier National Park wedding, Marquie and Josh did it right – I’ll give you a few tips on preparation in between all their gorgeous photos.
