INTENTION 

You are here for a reason, you see something unique and special in your significant other. You see them in a way that fills your chest with joy and brings comfort to your mind. You trust and respect them, you care for their heart, you can let your guard down when they enter the room, you share true joy and sadness with them; you see them for who they truly are and want to tell each other and the World how beautiful that vision is. These are the characteristics that you find so special in each other. You wholeheartedly believe, whether life moves quickly or slowly, that through capturing these living moments, you will be able to celebrate the precious vision that you two share for your relationship, adding significant and intangible value in the years to come.  

I strive to stand shoulder to shoulder with you in the belief that your marriage should be a foundation for which to build your relationship on.  Find out why, by clicking on MY WHY.

Everyday is a chance to see the best in people, to help them fearlessly pursue their inner value, their goals, and inspire them to live a life of significance.

Deep down I believe that truly listening and caring for my client's needs will help guide them to lasting memories of their day, being intentional is critical! 

Through my process of discovering your vision of your relationship, your specific needs and desires, and the wedding day events, I am able to create with you and deliver photographs that will be beautiful, creative, and true. 

Choosing to love one another is one of the most precious gifts on Earth and needs to be celebrated in your home by anchoring these moments on your walls and in your albums. Let’s do this.

Each session is unique, however, each phase of the shoot is structured for a reason. My framework of intentional guidance is there for a reason. Laughter, simplicity, quiet, calmness, creativity, sharing, vision, success and failure, vows, calling each other "Up" not out, is what you can expect. If we set out believing, trusting, and celebrating you two, it will be perfect.

Will you work hard at your marriage? Will you teach your friends and family what it looks like to trust, choose, and give unconditional love? What will you put your values in? Let's set the tone now, this is not another photoshoot, this is the beginning of a new journey, and through and through, your session will be about offering up the grandest versions of you. 

The power of what we set out to create and capture will only shine if we aim to truly connect and create a stronger understanding of what makes you unique. I need your trust, plain and simple. During our initial phone calls, we will dive a little deeper so that we can get a better perspective on what is important and unique about you two. Trust me, it is worth it.

“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 gallery, 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 will bring value and honor to your relationship. 

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.

Honesty is the best policy, therefore I must say this. If you are here to price shop, you want a photographer to "just" take photos like your Pinterest board, or you want "posy" run of the mill photos, I am probably not the creative for your day. ( With the most respect possible. ) You will be missing out on the best of what I can give you. My work is honest, beautiful, creative, and celebratory. ( Yes, I do take family formals, don't worry! )

Your photography is about building value in your lives and relationship; uncovering the best in each of you. It is much bigger than just taking cool photographs, or getting one more thing off of your to do list.

If you are engaged in the process, planning all of the details, wanting to enjoy family and friends, an adventurer, a creative, have a vision, and these photos align with you, then you are in the right place.

My couples are quirky, loving, artistic, detailed, artists, adventurers, outdoorsmen, city dwellers,  business owners, teachers, trustworthy, moms and dads, colorful and emotionally aware, different, find humor in the subtleties of life, Wes Anderson fans, coffee drinkers, Tesla owners, flip phone hipsters, gardening junkies, and the list goes on, but, most importantly, they see something special about their mate, and want that to shine.
