Madsen Wedding Movie

It’s hard to say what makes a perfect wedding, but I am pretty sure the Madsen’s got close to finding all of the necessary ingredients. Tyler and Kelly got married at Leonard Lake Reserve on May 3, 2014 during a weekend celebration of handmade whimsy. Surrounded by their family and closest friends, the wedding felt more like an intimate weekend event than a grandiose ceremony. Kelly, a wedding photographer, planned each aesthetic detail while Tyler, a musician, gathered some of his favorite troubadours to provide a folky soundtrack for the day. I could go on and on about the beauty of the wedding, but in short it was a wedding should be: a celebration among friends and family. I hope this is what heaven is like.

Hester Wedding Movie

If you say you have been to Stonyford before, you are probably not telling the truth. That is of course unless you were at the Hester/White wedding. The town of Stonyford is sort of like someone (probably God) took the beautiful landscape of Montana and plopped it smackdab (do people still say that?) Southwest of Chico. Needless to say, the wedding and ceremony were beautiful.

Matt and Beka’s country-style wedding (May 18), set against Stonyford’s picturesque hills and pastures, could not have been more fun to shoot. This is the first wedding I have shot solo in a while and the couple (and guests) made my job pretty easy. This was a great way to dive in to this busy wedding season. Congrats!
