BELIEVE // CREATE // CELEBRATE
WEDDINGS WITH INTENTION

You are here for a reason, you see something special in yourself and in these photographs. Trusting your photographer is a high priority for you. You believe that through capturing these moments you will be able to relive the most precious time that you had with the love of your life, your guests, the small conversations that took place, and the details of your day that made it so special. You want your memories to echo through your home and through the hearts that enter. Whether life moves fast or slow, the one aspect that will stand true is your choice for each other.

I strive to stand shoulder to shoulder with you in the belief that your marriage should be a foundation for which to build your future.

Everyday I get to bring out the best in people, to help them fearlessly pursue their goals, and inspire them to live a life of significance.

Deep down I believe that people want to be understood; that we want to show the deepest level of who we are to each other. We want to be known by those closest to us.

I believe in the best in every relationship, regardless of the situation. I believe that even in the most challenging conditions there is beauty, emotion, joy, and laughter. 

Choosing to love one another is one of the most precious gifts on Earth and needs to be celebrated. When we state our intentions with each other it gives us direction and a foundation to build a healthy relationship off of. Let’s celebrate you two.

Everyday I get to bring out the best in my couples and help them pursue their goals in a meaningful relationship. Through intentional guidance and uncovering the true value you share in your relationship, the time we share together will be more focused on you two celebrating each other and capturing those unique intricacies in amazing photographs.

You are putting your trust in me to help build your legacy for years to come. Your trust is key. Your display of your artwork will only have meaning if you dive in and create with me. I want to deliver photographs that will stop you dead in your tracks and positively impact the lives that surround them.

The power of what we set out to create and capture will only shine if we aim to truly connect and create a stronger bond. Let’s share these moments with others, but not lose sight of the legacies that should be in physical form and echo throughout our homes. This is why your photographs need to live on your walls as a reminder of the value you share together.

“Montana set my mind at ease from the start by providing me all of the information, tips and suggestions I could have ever asked for, without overdoing it. He makes himself super available so you’re never left feeling confused or worried, which as a bride, is much appreciated! Montana invests himself in creating lasting memories and capturing the essence of the relationship and that requires a skill beyond operating a camera.”

I believe in the best regardless of the situation, I believe that even in the most challenging conditions there is beauty, emotion, joy, and laughter. I believe there is value in your relationship and that you deserve to have it captured beautifully. My vision is unique; it is intentional. To achieve what you see and love in my portfolio, to get those pieces of art that will be passed down from generation to generation, I need your trust. I understand that there is depth and beauty to your relationship; I cannot wait to guide you through the journey and deliver an experience that you will walk away from saying that it was more than just a shoot.

I am a connoisseur of fun socks and fine cat photos. I am not a vegan, I just eat healthy food. My alias to my family is Bear Claw. There are no woodland creatures in my beard. Yo trabajo World wide, which means "I" trabajo World wide. (It’s Spanish.) My clients come from all over the World. I could eat pancakes every morning, my wife and daughter are sick of them. I love showing people my dog's tricks she can do. I often say humorous things that only I laugh at in my head.... (Don't worry, I wont ruin your wedding

 with one.) I do have a coffee obsession, like most Americans. My wife and daughter mean the world to me. I have too many scarves and don't wear any of them. I shoot with two hands, figure that one out. I love prints, oh man, I said it. Crossfit, let's just say "cross training" so that we can be friends. It is the small moments that count. I love to wink. Photography is a way to capture the moments we are experiencing. My love for this life keeps growing, it is reflected in my photography! Everyday is an adventure.
