Kim and Kyle have the funnest, sweetest, most amazing love between them. I had the opportunity to travel to Lakeside and Rollins, MT for their engagement pictures at two spots very special to the couple! I am a sucker for lakes with mountains towering in the background, and everything about their shoot fulfilled my biggest desires as a photographer! Kim and Kyle are two of the sweetest, most fun-loving people I’ve ever met. They picked me up at a brisk 6:30 a.m. for a sunrise shoot as Kyle is a golf pro and therefore works almost everyday, all day! Prior to them getting to my airbnb, Kim texted me and offered to pick up my favorite coffee for the shoot and that says so much about the person that she is!
Both of our locations were at Kim’s grandparent’s houses right on Flathead Lake, one a short distance from Lakeside, and one closer to Rollins! The first location was where Kyle had popped the question only months prior, and we were sure to get images with the actual room that he proposed in in the background! Here, we were able to capture the sweethearts on a dock with the mountains in the background, a swing that Kim’s grandfather built, and around the property that holds so many memories for Kim’s family! Kim’s mom met us at this location and helped immensely to block the harsh sun by holding up a towel to get those dreamy images that the couple deserves! This is easily one of my favorite memories of the morning!
At our second location, we were greeted with smiles and well-wishes by Kim’s grandmother and grandfather. They live in a gorgeous home surrounded by apple trees, a walking trail, flowers, and a picnic area right on the lakefront! As we adventured around, Kim told stories about her childhood and pointed out their wedding location which is on a point across the lake! I am so glad we were able to capture their images in a spot that means so much to both Kim and Kyle.
Afterwards, they drove me around the lake for a sneak peek at their ceremony location – a summer camp right on Flathead Lake! Does it get better than that?! Kim and Kyle have such a strong bond between them and I loved watching them reminisce and dream of their upcoming wedding. The way these two speak to each other and obviously respect each other is admirable and so, so heartwarming. Kim and Kyle actually booked us because they attended Haley and Ryan Reeves’s wedding in April and were able to watch us work! How neat is that?!
Kim & Kyle, I simply cannot wait for your big day! If it is even a quarter as good as your have described it, the day will be nothing short of magical. I feel like I have not only gained awesome clients in them, but also two friends. So many heart eyes for these two; thank you for giving me the honor of capturing your love!
