Josh & Taryn~ August 18, 2018~ Landscape Wedding {Shields Valley Wedding Photographer}

When I met with Taryn about her wedding day, I got so excited. She was explaining all of the landscaping her dad was doing on their company property, all of the details she was making and putting together and it got me giddy. Then our walk through with the wedding designer, the fabulous Jenna Buyck of Just Beautiful Creations, was amazing in itself.

Due to the major flooding our area saw just weeks before the wedding, there were a lot of last minute decisions. However, her dad is a master at his craft and made it absolutely perfect for his little girl’s day.

The day was awesome. It can be pretty hot in August, but this day was a little overcast (
and smoke from the wildfires in Cananda) and cool. We had the best lighting imaginable.

Get ready for photo overload. I loved these details!!


Taryn’s dad made this hillside just for the wedding. It was stunning! I had to hang the dress on the cross.


We had a nice little set up for them to get ready outside the shop.


Lots of pink and gold. Love.


The first look was the bridge that they would walk down during the ceremony. Tears, so many tears.

They are just perfect.



Taryn had thought of everything for the details. I couldn’t get enough!





Jenna has the best decorations too. She just knows how to make it all gorgeous!

These girls were a blast.

They were ready for some fun!



She was such a doll!

The ceremony was an emotional one. I love those!

Give me an outdoor ceremony I can walk around and I am in heaven!!


The groom may have slipped on the bridge…but didn’t fall!

So. Many. Perfect. Details.








They danced their way into the reception!



Such a proud father.

Emotional moms get me every time.

The last shots. Though we didn’t have the sunset we wanted, it was still gorgeous!

Fun fact. When I got home from this wedding my husband told me he got the job in Montana. All day I had no idea our lives were about to change. Crazy how life works.

I am now booking 2019 weddings! I can’t wait to shoot my first mountain wedding out here. Contact me for a special moving gift from me if you book your wedding before January 1!! I love weddings!
