Hello friends, meet Lydia & Connor! These two met while in college through a few mutual friends and knew pretty quickly that this could be something special. After just one night of chatting with Connor, Lydia decided to ask him to be her date to her sorority formal and that's when the first "yes" began! 

After dating for a few years, Connor decided it was time to ask Lydia to marry him. The two were spending Labor Day Weekend with Lydia's family on Lake Martin when Connor made sure this would be the perfect place for their engagement. Surrounded by the beautiful lake, Connor strung lights around the dock, and asked Lydia for her to be his wife. Of course she said yes! 

Lydia says she is most excited for the first look on their wedding day. I can't wait to see everything come together for their perfect day this fall! They will be surround with family & friends and enjoy the night they will never forget!

Enjoy these beautiful photos from WesterlyWay!

Hello friends & welcome to the KP Blog!! Today I wanted to continue our guest blog series and let you all meet Kelli & Daniel Taylor. These two are a little special to me as they photographed MY wedding <3 I absolutely love spending the day with Kelli & Daniel, they are too much fun and incredibly talented. Hope you enjoy learning all about Kelli & Daniel!
1. How long have you been apart of the wedding industry as a photographer?
 This is our tenth year shooting weddings full time. We've photographed more than 200 wedding couples.
2. Did you always know that you wanted to photograph weddings?
No, we had no idea! Daniel and I were each photographers before we ever met. He was in advertising and fashion, and I was a journalist with photography experience mostly in sports. The sports background comes in handy during bouquet and garter tosses! We got interested while we were planning our own wedding. We had trouble finding a wedding photographer with a style we loved (that wasn't cheesy). We came up with a template for our own big day and did some of the shooting ourselves. Then our neighbors saw our photos and we photographed their wedding. Their maid of honor hired us, and it just grew from there.
3. On wedding day, what is your favorite thing or part of the day to photograph?
I love those first few minutes right after the bride and groom have been pronounced man and wife. We always try to take them straight outside or to a private place for some quick photos, completely alone. There's nothing like the joy, adrenaline and excitement of that fresh newlywed glow. The camera just adores it. As a guy with three older sisters, Daniel never gets tired of seeing the love, friendship and camaraderie of the bride and bridesmaids as they rally to get the bride ready. He loves capturing all the moments of those precious relationships.
4. Who is your ideal client?
Our amazing couples have a range of styles and are never cookie cutter. They love and value photographs. They want classic and timeless elements in their weddings, but they add creative, fun and unique touches. We collaborate so every couple has a very personalized experience, from custom, editorial-style engagement sessions to suggestions for personal photo details and preferred vendors.
5. What advice would you give a future bride?
Hire a wedding coordinator or planner! It will save your sanity and allow you, your mom, sister and best friends to really enjoy the engagement time without all the overwhelm.
My advice for hiring a photographer is to, first, dive in to Google or Pinterest and see what styles speaks to you. Is it brighter with more color, soft and airy, or more dark and moody? Posed, or more natural and photojournalistic?
Check out web sites and portfolios and see what makes your heart happy. Talk to your friends and co-workers. Read reviews on WeddingWire.com, Google Business and TheKnot.com.
This goes for all vendors, but pay attention to the level of service from your first inquiry email. If you don't hear back for 10 days, that's probably the kind of experience you'll get throughout your wedding journey. You can do much, much better.

Hello loves! 

Well it finally happened, we had a beautiful styled shoot at my precious venue in Helena last weekend! I've been DYING to have a bride & groom take a few photos inside my little chapel and Taylor & Caleb were the perfect couple. Over the last several weeks, the photographer Shelby Bonner, and I have been brainstorming how we could make this shoot gorgeous to represent our businesses but also a little different with a boho-vibe. After a few ideas, I knew the Shutter Bus would be a perfect addition!! Enjoy these beautiful photos below <3

Hello friends! 

Today meet Olivia & Jake! These two precious humans met back in 2013 while celebrating a friend's birthday and it was love at first sight...well for him at least! They spent a few days together and Olivia finally knew Jake would be something special. After dating for FIVE YEARS, Jake planned the most romantic & amazing trip to Aruba in October. Olivia said she had a feeling this was THE trip that he would finally pop the question, but wasn’t sure the exact place and time. While on a snorkeling excursion exploring coral reefs, Jake called Olivia over to him to show her something he found and what Olivia found was a pretty sparkly ring in his hand! She said, "I genuinely had no clue that he would do it right then & there but it was the cutest most clever proposal. We celebrated with everyone else on the ship. It was magical!"  How precious is that!?

Olivia and Jake will be saying I Do with all of their friends and family next fall and I couldn't be more excited! Enjoy these gorgeous photos from Be Light Photography!

Hello friends! 

Today on the blog is Meagan & Cody's beautiful fall wedding at Otter Creek. This dreamy wedding gave us all the fall feels, from the flowers to the spiced tea, it was a perfect wedding day! Meagan & Cody had a beautiful intimate wedding day with their closest friends and family with a great after party! 

Meagan & Cody chose to see each other for the first time when sweet Meagan was walking down the aisle. Before the ceremony the two shared a few moments reading their vows to one another without seeing each other, it was so precious and a beautiful moment together. 

I loved this gorgeous day with some amazing vendors!
