  • Kallie and Connor's wedding featured more than a wee bit of surprise.  From gifts to music, to an unplanned moment at the cake stand, the joyfully unexpected attended a life event some people want to unfold in as regimented a fashion as possible.  Wise and happy is the couple who can roll with surpr [...]
  • We're always gleaning new bits of culture from our couples. We've learned that we must watch Arrested Development, for instance, in order to make any sense of the bizarre courtship ritual a future bride and groom recently previewed to us. Meanwhile, the movie Bridesmaids served as a cultural touchst [...]
  • We live in the Pinterest era, where brides are as likely to draw wedding inspiration from one another as from a magazine's style editor. More ideas can spread faster and further. And when you have Joanna's eye and talent, you can transplant Brooklyn to the Mountain West, making a success of even the [...]
  • There is a wedding tradition that holds, to be sure of good weather on your special day, you must hang a bottle of whiskey in the old birch tree. The bottled spirits will calm the winds and hold off the clouds, so—wait, is that a tradition?! Maybe the whiskey ensures you'll enjoy a great day no matt [...]
  • A Father's Day weekend treat saw a few old tyme costumes, free sarsaparilla, and family games at Garnet Ghost Town! See more photos from the day here: http://slikati.zenfolio.com/garnet
  • We bet last Saturday was the first time we've heard a bridesmaid complimented on her nice zygomatic bones. And the smooth operator moonwalking across the reception hall? He's a trauma surgeon. Nic and Katie's day was a delight to be a part of--and, apart from a playful syncope, wonderfully devoid of [...]
  • We offered free Day of the Dead portraits last year as an experiment. Our downtown location was several months from becoming a fully realized studio, which meant that our options for backdrops and lighting were limited. We also weren't sure what to expect in answer to our advertisement: "Come as [...]
  • We have to share a few more images from a studio session last month. Each shoot may start out with a narrow objective--pictures of hairstyles, in this instance--but we find we can't help playing with ideas (and croquet mallets). Thanks again to stylist Janae Naab, and models Mackenzie, Rachel, and C [...]
  • It may seem that only in fairy tales would the celebrant's arrival dispel unrelenting rain, and a first dance clear the skies. But Kaila & Brooks had good luck in spades on the day of their beautiful wedding, culminating in a happily ever after! [...]
  • Thank you Missoula for naming us Best Photographer in the Independent's Best of Missoula issue!!! And thanks to Bonnie for the write-up. We're nearly as excited to realize that we roam Missoula with a nom de guerre (which beats a "bizarre cognomen" any day)! Seek us out at Caras Park from 5-8 pm tod [...]
  • We tend to approach all photo shoots as a form of play. That's doubly true when we're photographing kids, and the camera might otherwise seem to stand in for the unrelenting stare of the smile police. So we're fine with children bringing toys, dancing, shouting out word games with us. We're ready: l [...]
