Kamara & Dalton. Where do I even begin? As I sit here putting together your sneak peak + blog post, I am struggling to find the words to describe exactly how amazing it was to spend 24 hours with you guys capturing your love and you elopement. My words aren’t failing me, it’s quite the opposite in fact: I have too many to choose from. Relaxed. Harmonious. Unconventional. Spontaneous. Down home. Easy going. Full of love, devotion, happiness, and enchantment. From our wonderful conversations about life in the car, to the picnic in the woods. From watching the awe in both of you eyes as we stood beneath the jagged mountain peaks, to the simplicity and sincereness of your vows. From the delicious hamburgers and cake, to the little things that your friends and family sent along with you so that pieces of them were there with you during the most important moment of both your lives thus far. The honor of getting to be your third wheel and companion through it all is something I don’t know how to accurately put into words. I hope you both enjoy this first look at your elopement and I wish you both so much love, light and happiness as you start your journey as husband and wife.

The day started with Kamara & Dalton meeting with their officiant, Karen Holey, in Red Lodge, MT and then getting ready with India at their Airbnb in Roscoe, MT. Once Kami was ready, we did a first look out by East Rose Bud Creek behind the house and then went over to the Custer National Forest by Nye for some lunch and pictures. We rounded out the evening by taking
