what I'm about
Hey! I’m Macy, a Montana gal living on 40 acres in the Beartooth Mountain foothills. I’m an outdoorsy person, wildflower admirer, wife, mother, and wanna be chicken lady. I’d say my passions in life include Cafe Rio, Pendleton (both whiskey + wool), all things Mountains, lists, and caffeine. I got my start in photography as a teenager, when my mom gave me her camera. I’ve been shooting ever since and have really settled into shooting the thing I love most….couples, intimate weddings and elopements.
Couples who love adventure, nature, and being real are my kind of people. I’m here for those who don’t mind getting dirt on their clothes, bumpy backroads to get to epic locations, or letting loose to get creative with their photos. I take a more laid-back and natural approach to photos, which means less “smile at the camera” and more movement and connection.
I’m a fan of the big moments, and the little ones too. The real stuff, the imperfect stuff, the good stuff. The big, head laid-back laughs, the sweet, up-close quiet moments. The in-between goodness. Are you into that stuff too? Good, let me help tell your story and take photos that feel like you.
Why small weddings and elopements?
After shooting anything and everything over 5 years, I've really just found my heart lies with more intimate gatherings. It is not that I don't enjoy big weddings, because I do. I've got a soft spot for mother/son dances, first looks, all your family and friends coming together to support you, and let's be real, the epic party at the end. But niching down has allowed me to focus on helping couples create an intentional, memorable day solely about the two of them. Whether it's just the two of them alone saying their vows, or surrounded by 25-50 of they closest people, it's about nothing but them getting married. Small weddings and elopements deserve the same amount of love and documentation as a big wedding. I'm here to give that to couples who know deep down an intentional intimate day is right for them.
Do you travel for intimate weddings and elopements?
Oh boy do I! Last year I drove over 30k miles, traveling all over the state and even over to Wyoming. I'm so fortunate to be able to see so many places from Glacier National Park to the Tetons, and I love planning road trips to see even more! My collections include travel for Montana and some surrounding areas like the Tetons, but if you're further away I can send you a custom travel quote. LET'S GO!
Do you shoot big weddings?
I focus on weddings with less than 50 guests. I do however take a very limited amount of large weddings a year with couples who are a great fit. Feel free to reach out if after reading through my work you feel a connection, I'd love to chat!
Here is where I’ll keep my travel dates, which are updating quite often. As I’m out and about I’d love to shoot with you (heck ya to no travel fees!)
September 1-3 Tetons
October 5-8 Tetons
October 10-25 Juneau

I'll be going back and forth from Juneau to Montana, so just depends on when you're getting married!

If you want to elope in one of these places while I’m there, just shoot me an email and we’ll get to planning!
