Located just 90 minutes from Yellowstone National Park, Bozeman is an earthy little town that offers a scenic backdrop for your engagement and wedding photos. Be nestled between mountains as your love is captured by one of these 3 Bozeman-based wedding photographers we’ve rounded up for you.
Rich, Raw, and Bold.
Her philosophy: “I use light and contrast to create a focal point and enhance the emotion in every image. I’m drawn to vivid colors and negative space, but I also love the drama of a black and white image. I consider myself more of an artist with an unposed approach, capturing the moments as they happen.”
What she wants her clients to know: “My favorite experience as a wedding photographer is having the opportunity to capture the intimate, candid moments that happen throughout the course of the day. They’re always the moments that become most sacred to us. All of the things that had to happen to lead up to the very moment where these two people decide on a forever adventure together is so much bigger than myself, and I feel honored to capture the celebration.
It’s important that my clients feel connected to me and vice versa. The process of booking your wedding photographer takes trust and having a deeper connection with me gives me the ability to capture those subtle, but profound, moments happening on your wedding day.
I’ve experienced this journey for myself, and I always remind my clients not to stress too much about the tiny details, to take a moment to soak it all in, and to truly be present because the day goes by so fast!”
Bonus: Stephannie is Bozeman-based but available for travel, too.
Romantic, Natural, and Timeless.
Their philosophy: “We’re a husband and wife team that loves creating images that are full of beautiful light, love, and joyful people. That’s so hard to narrow down! Every time we get to photograph couples and their special moments is truly an honor. It’s always super fun to photograph surprise engagements, though!”
What they want their clients to know: “One time we hid out in the woods and were literally lying on the forest floor to make sure we weren’t seen while the proposal was happening! That was a memorable experience!
We’ve photographed weddings together since day one and become a seamless team as a result. Our expertise and calm demeanors help us create a relaxed, fun, and fulfilling experience for our couples, capturing genuine emotion and moments for them to relive for years to come.
Samantha’s professionalism and keen eye along with Reid’s gentle personality and technical skills not only produce natural, timeless images but a genuinely comfortable atmosphere. We believe our clients, their families, and their guests should be treated like gold, and we go above and beyond to create an unparalleled experience.”
Bonus: “To be honest, we try not to follow photography trends. A trend is something that isn’t lasting, and we never want our images to feel dated or out of style. We love when our couples trust us to create images that capture their unique relationship in a timeless, classic way. Trends come and go, and our goal is for our images to outlast trends.”
Natural, Raw, and Authentic.
Her philosophy: “As a natural light photographer, I aim to capture not only the raw esthetic of our landscape but also the authenticity of each, individual relationship. Couple photography meets lifestyle.”
What she wants her clients to know: “I want to capture you in your natural environment that reflects the most genuine side of your relationship. I live for the outdoors. I think couples who are like-minded tend to gravitate towards my approach and style. I live for grand adventures and epic landscapes. There’s no adventure too grand for me to get the once-in-a-lifetime photos that you’re seeking.
Elopements are becoming more and more trendy, and I love it. Not only is it an intimate experience, but you have endless one-on-one time with the couple to get all the epic wedding photos of your dreams.
I live for people. As much as I love photographing, I love the relationships that form through the process. I often have a year timespan to get to know a couple from their engagement until their wedding day. By then, they are comfortable with me, and I know their personalities well, which helps me capture them more naturally, along with all their sweet quirks.”
Bonus: “I offer half-off engagement sessions for any couple that books me for their big day!”
