It was so great to work with Matt and Megan again! As I was expecting, their wedding was over the top and fantastic. One of the few times I wished that I did video. The stage and theater were absolutely perfect for their wedding. Everyone was in costume too, except for this boring photographer. Stay tuned for some more of their photos!
Where have we been?! Working! I'm currently working on a couple long term projects while shooting this summer's weddings. The one I'm most excited about is The Heritage Project. Lexi inherited her late step father's Winston fly rod and in an effort to connect our families together, I will be chronicling her experience being introduced to the world and heritage of fly fishing on my late grandfather's camera. We'll be going to the Winston factory in Twin Bridges, MT, fishing the blue ribbon rivers around Montana and going to the home of fly fishing; the River Spey in Scotland.
Other happenings have included a renewed passion of my own in mixed martial arts. Our trip to San Francisco resulted in me going "ew...is that what I look like?" and getting back into the gym. Training with John at Fortress Combat Arts has been great. We've been friends for a long time, getting back onto the mats is like coming home. If you see odd bruises on me, don't worry, they're consensual (kinda).
Wedding season is in full swing, this week I'm looking forward to seeing Kjersti and Derrick make things official at Gallatin River Hideaway and excited to work with my friends Bondafide Film House again. Last week I was fortunate enough to work with Matt and Megan at their very unique Steampunk themed wedding in Livingston, MT. Stay tuned for more photos from both weddings!
Today was a fun and exciting day. As some of you may know, I've started a new multimedia project to explore life in Montana and what makes this place so unique. Our first guest was John from Fortress Combat, talking about life, martial arts and survival.
You can find John in the gym, or online at www.fortresscombat.com or on social media @fortress_combat
For those that aren't in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, we had a decent amount of weather this last weekend. Of course, it landed on the weekend that Lexi and I were set to go down to the park and spend a nice weekend eating fancy food and having a good time down in Chico Hot Springs. While I decided to venture off into the storm to chase Moose and Dall Sheep, Lexi stayed nice and warm in the car.
My hopes of scouting Chico for some unique locations for Kim and Jake's upcoming wedding were hilariously crushed by Mother Nature. (Did you know that you can get ice stuck in your ears? I do now.) I guess I'll just have to go back some time soon...maybe when the fishing's a little nicer...
I had such a great time this last weekend with Matt and Megan's engagement shoot! Working in Bozeman has me yearning for more industrial style shoots. Making the trip out to Livingston was well worth it! They're going to be doing their wedding in the theater and I'm definitely excited for it. In addition to that, it's going to be a steampunk theme and I'll be challenging myself with some wet plate processes. These will definitely be some unique wedding photos!

My current winter projects are to find and photograph owls and otters in Yellowstone. Tracking both is far easier in the winter when their darker colors contrast against the white snow. There are also rumors of Snowy Owls in Montana! While I haven't seen any actual proof, a trip to the plains just might be warranted!
Welcome to the new home of MooseHeart Photography! With this new format, I hope to keep you all up to date with my antics. It's now much much easier for me to upload and arrange photos, which means I'll actually want to update my website as I go on shoots!
