Bitterroot Valley Photography
AHHH! Any time I get to take part in a love story in my hometown, the more convinced that Hamilton Montana photography is probably they prettiest on earth! I loved getting to head home to Montana for an engagement session with these two! I’ve been rooting them on for a long time! Kali and I grew up just a few houses apart and her family of sisters and my family all lines up pretty right on in ages. I’ve photographed their family for years as well and they’ve always been an amazing support to me! I even used to work for Hunter’s dad in high school as a physical therapy intern! I’m so honored to get to serve Kali and Hunter for their wedding!

Hunter was hoping to go on some dates last fall before heading back to school! He asked his dad to set him up on a few “practice” dates before heading away to college. Hunter’s dad talked to Kali’s dad to see if he thought she would be willing. They joke all the time that they thought Kali would be home within an hour of the date, but their first date was surprising almost 6 hours! That first night they went to Taco Del Sol and then went to Hunter’s parents airport hanger. After building a fire, they had s’mores, and talked for hours. They clicked so good from that first date.

Just a few weeks ago Hunter surprised Kali with the biggest question of her life!! Hunter wanted to be sure it was a surprise so her so he got a local police officer to agree to pull Kali over as a traffic stop. Kali’s heart was beating fast and when the officer asked her to get out of the car and come around back, her heart beat EVEN faster when she saw Hunter there! He was on his knee and he definitely surprised her!!!
Trapper’s Peak Engagements
I happened to be home in Montana for a few days while photographing a wedding here. It worked out perfectly to photograph their engagements with the view of the Bitterroot Mountains where we all grew up! Hunter took us to a gorgeous field where you can see Trapper’s Peak in the backdrop and it was the perfect spot. These two are the best of friends. Hunter is so sweet with her and Kali just beams when she looks at him. They tease each other and laugh with each other. I loved their adorable outfits they picked out and they looked amazing with the backdrop! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in Brigham City, Utah later this summer! Congrats guys!
