I absolutely love it when my clients tell me they're getting married or are having their engagement photos done in Red Lodge. Red Lodge is gorgeous, only 45 minutes from Billings, has one of the US's most beautiful drive (I'm looking at you Beartooth pass,) has mountains on mountains, and the town itself is straight out of a Hallmark movie.
I first met Ashley at Maple Moose in Billings to talk about her and her fiance's wedding. After discussing their beautiful wedding in Bozeman, we started talking about engagement their engagement shoot. Originally we were going to go for a drive to Molt and stop at different cool areas, but the weather in that area turned yucky and we moved to Red Lodge.
Which I am ALWAYS a big fan of. We ended up heading to Wild Bill Lake, which is a place I've never actually been to and neither had Ashley or Shea. So it was a bit of a shot in the dark, especially with our little cars that don't always handle the snow the best. But we made it, after a short hike to the lake that was completely frozen over, we started out with some laughs and light casual joking.
Some couples are pretty uncomfortable in front of the camera, which is reasonable seeing as it can be a bit stressful, but Shea and Ashley were total naturals!
Their chemistry was so great and with the giant cliff behind them, it was STUNNING.
Normally the hard part is editing photos, but this one was easy to edit, but difficult to cull as their were SO MANY GOOD SHOTS.
All in all, I am pumped for their upcoming November wedding and I'm PUMPED to see how their gorgeous November wedding turns out in the mountains!
