For My Wedding Clients

I have always been interested in alternative printing processes and when I saw these custom wood boxes I had to try them out. I think they are the perfect fit for my photography style and from here on out I will be delivering my digital photographs to my wedding clients via these personalized boxes and an engraved USB flashdrive. Yay for unique photography products and for awesome clients who let me use them as guinea pigs, thanks Christie + Clark!

Oktoberfest 2014 // Red Lodge, Montana

Trading photos for beer was an excellent idea (thanks Tyler!) and we had a blast at this years Red Lodge Oktoberfest!!! I hope our photo booth provided some fun entertainment for all, and if you missed it, make sure to put it on your radar for next year and come say hi!

I hope anyone that was able to attend enjoyed the polka dancing, with music provided by Red Lodge area’s very own German band, the Alte Kameraden, the Oktoberfest Olympics hosted by Andy and Red Lodge Ales which provided some serious entertainment with teams competing from Red Lodge, Bozeman, Colorado and beyond and also, the incredible musicians from The Bus Driver Tour whose music rounded out the evening. Proceeds from this years gate went to the Beartooth Recreational Trails Association.

For anyone that wasn’t able to attend, and for those of you who had one too many Octubre Fiestas, check out a few highlights below and if you want more (you do!) head over to my proof site by clicking here where you can see all of my images from throughout the day.

Seriously, what a fun event for a great local cause! Thanks to all who attended, from near and far and to anyone that stopped by our photo booth, it was great Oktoberfesting with you all Montana style! If you see someone in these images that you know, feel free to share this post so they can see too!


Photo Art + Upholstery Shop Collaboration // #thatchairisfly

I was super excited and grateful when Heather (pictured above) from Upholstery Shop here in Red Lodge, Montana asked me to take some shots for a project she had in mind. One of the (very few) detriments of living in this insanely beautiful place, is having to bear witness to the endless supply of idyllic/cheesy/fairytale-like representations of cabin/wildlife/mountain scenes that have finagled their way into our lives in the form of decor and design. You know what I’m talking about. Luckily, with a little ingenuity, we can take our design problems into our own hands. Enter Heather, an upholstery mastermind, Spoonflower, a textile company where you can lose days online perusing their catalog and design your very own fabric, our friend Erin and me.

Heather revolted against the kitsch in this particular case. She purchased locally hand-tied flies from East Rosebud Fly and Tackle. I photographed them on a sunny day and then our friend Erin used her mad photoshopping skills to build the fly pattern. After a couple slight adjustments to the background color, our pattern was a reality and off it went to Spoonflower for production.

Once Heather received the fabric and finished the reupholster of the chair we had to take the finished project out for some fresh air and a little photo-op next to Rock Creek before handing it back to its delighted owner. Success!

This project was way fun and it was so nice to be a part of a larger creative collaboration. For your next upholstery project, I double dare you all to think outside of the box. If you have an idea and want something unique, we would love the opportunity to do our part to redefine Montana decor and help to make your idea a reality. If anything, I hope this post has caused those creative wheels of yours to spin. Let’s start a design revolution, tag similar projects with #thatchairisfly and please share this if you find it interesting. A big cheers all the way from Red Lodge, here’s to creating and utilizing local talent and resources. Now, go fishing or something.
