One of my bucket list items was crossed off this week… to shoot Maggie & Justin’s Missoula, Montana engagement photos! Ten years ago when I was just in the middle of my photography education I didn’t know where photography would bring me. Maybe I would stay in Montana? Maybe I would photograph landscapes? Maybe I would photograph weddings? Yes…. that is where it brought me.
This past week has been full circle, and I’ll be honest it was a little hard leaving Montana yet again… a post to come on that soon. But, once you take a look at Maggie & Justin’s engagement photos I have a feeling you’ll know why.
Maggie & Justin met their junior year of college in Michigan (Justin’s home state). They were set up by their roommates because they just knew they would be perfect for each other – but it took a good long four months for them to even talk to each other because they were so shy! Maggie graduated last May and moved to Missoula to finish her graduate degree at the University of Montana. Justin spent the last year finishing his undergrad – while they both traveled back and forth to see one another through this long-distance portion of their relationship. This spring when Maggie flew back to Michigan for Justin’s graduation he proposed to her at her favorite spot on Lake Superior… and now they’re planning a 2019 wedding <3
I was so excited for the opportunity to photograph these two in the mountains tucked just minutes from Missoula, I will be forever grateful for the chance! You can just tell these two are head over heels for one another – and it shows in every single image. Congratulations on your engagement!
