I love Montana.
I was lucky enough to document Nick and Eleese’s wedding in a beautiful setting in Northwest Montana. The town of Trego really doesn’t have much — no cell service, no grocery stores or fast food restaurants. Eleese grew up in this area and if I remember right they did not have running water at her home until she was in the fifth grade. But what Trego lacks in modern conveniences it makes up with its breathtaking beauty — typical of Western MT. The area Nick and Eleese chose for their big day lies just North of Whitefish and is truly a great place to make some photographs.
From the waterfront home the bridal party got ready at to the ceremony on the shores of Dickey Lake and the reception out in the woods, you couldn’t ask for a better backdrop for making some photos.
I will sadly admit that spending a day without cell service was sort of hard. But it was also refreshing and was a good reality check. I think it’s great to get out in the country from time to time and simplify things for a weekend or even a day. I’m glad Nick and Eleese gave me the chance to do that while being a part of their special day! Congrats you two!
