And while I totally agree with Templeton, turns out it’s also a pretty good place for a fun, romantic photo shoot too!
Last weekend I had the chance to go home to Montana for a few days. Not only did I have a great time visiting with my family and meeting my new nephew (I’ll post bragging pictures later, because he is the CUTEST first great-grandson ever to be born into our family), I also got to do engagement photos for my beautiful niece, Erin, and her wonderful fiancé, Trevor.
Erin and I started planning and talking about wedding ideas a couple months ago (even before she was formally engaged!) and in discussing engagement photos, I realized that the most likely weekend I’d be home to take them would also be the weekend of the Ravalli County Fair…well, it was just too good to pass up! Erin loved the idea, and Trevor loves Erin, so on Saturday evening the three of us spent several hours at the fairgrounds taking pictures.
I am so pleased with how they turned out! Lots of color, lots of atmosphere, and I even got them on a camel together! Now Erin can say with the upmost of authority, how difficult it is to kiss while riding a camel. 🙂 In editing and developing the photos I chose to do some of them with a more aged/distressed finish, as Erin has chosen a vintage theme for her wedding. Check out a few of the samples below.
