My first wedding of 2018 was with this gorgeous couple, AJ + Brittany.
I must say, photographing these two for the day was amazing. They are some sweet down to earth beautiful people. They decided on a first look, and we went around the property for their photos. This was my first time shooting at Camelot Ranch in Billings, and it was a dream! Everything was all in one location and the lighting everywhere was perfect. All the bridal party and family photos were planned for before the ceremony, and even though we were running on time, we didn’t have enough time for all of them! Sometimes that’s just how it goes. But that’s why it’s important to have buffer times in place and to have time set aside for things like that. Brittany had a large family list, which is so cool because it just goes to show how much family means to AJ and her. The ceremony was just stunning. I always lean toward outdoor ceremonies, but when it’s this beautiful and well lit inside sign me up! So along with a few tears and sweet smiles, they poured unity sand and made vows to each other before God and their loved ones.
So after the ceremony we finished up the family photos in our extra time we had set aside and then had a blast with all the dancing and reception activities. As the sun was slowly going down the light warmed up just right, and so we headed out. Besides it’s a must have to get those romantic sunset photos, it’s nice to leave the reception for a few minutes to get a breath of air and enjoy some quieter time with your new spouse. There’s a photo in this post that shows what it’s like behind the scenes. It’s Justin, Taylor, and my second shooter Tabby! Photographing a wedding is so much more fun with good company like these people, we had too much fun!
I promise 400+ photos in the Collection Brittany decided on…but I can’t help overshooting when everything is perfect. So here’s a few favorites from a total of 1,500 images. And I’m sorry in advance for too many photos Brittany + AJ. Enjoy!
Oh and here’s the incredible team that made this day so special for AJ + Brittany!
