Glacier National Park Elegant and Romantic Styled Elopement


This year has been all about not leaving anything up to chance in my business. Even with Covid and everything else happening in the world, I have not allowed myself to slow down. I have never felt more driven in my life to chase my dream of working for myself one day and creating the life I want. If I am honest, it has really been the last 2 years that I have had this shift of mindset...ever since my divorce. Life is too short to sit in idle. Time really has a way of shifting its course and lighting a fire under your ass! Ha! I am grateful for the things I have been through because it led me here.


This particular shoot was a dream-come-true shoot for me. It has been one of my favorite projects I have worked on so far. I hand picked my friends/vendors to help me create something beautiful and different and they all succeeded. A special thank you to Shayna at Montana Diaries for giving input and helping coordinate!


We all met at an AirBNB initially to get ready with Brittnee with Ethereal Hair and Makeup. For me, there is just something kind of fun about getting people who don’t know each other together and just seeing what happens haha! We had a blast watching Brittnee do her magic and we all made a couple of new friends in the process.


After we all got ready, we headed up to Bowman lake in West Glacier, Montana. Glacier wasn’t fully open at the time because of the snow clearing progress, which I was kind of bummed about. I am SO glad that I have made friends that knew the area because one suggested Bowman Lake and ...it was perfect. It was quiet...we basically had the area to ourselves. It honestly felt like a gift that God was giving me...saying “Here you go, love! This is exactly where you need to be right now. Have fun!”


So, here we are. The beautiful result. The final product. I love it. Thank you to everyone who helped with this project!
