My trip back to Bozeman was so lovely! An art show, a wedding and a late afternoon shoot with these two little rascals! Here’s a few of my favorites.

Altitude Gallery for September Art Walk

I’m honored to be Altitude Gallery’s featured artist for Downtown Bozeman’s September art walk! I’m so excited for this opportunity! Altitude is such a contemporary and hip gallery. Yes, I wrote ‘hip.’ Because I grew up in the 90’s. Please mark your calendars for September 11th and stop by!

Katie & Andy at the Rainbow Ranch

Ashley Stevick PhotographyBig Sky, Blog, Bozeman, Montana, Wedding

I had the supreme pleasure of photographing Katie and Andy’s wedding at the Rainbow Ranch up in Big Sky, MT in July. There’s was an elegantly orchestrated Alice in Wonderland themed event. The tables were decorated with tea cups, playing cards, old books and clocks as well as porcelain rabbits and cats. The bride and groom are both quite creative – entrepreneurs actually – so it’s no surprise their wedding was memorable and as sweet as their decked out candy bar!

Katie’s amazing bouquet was arranged by my friend Julio of Kirkham & Co. and her dress, as well as the tuxes, are from Eskay Bridal in Bozeman. The Bridger Creek Boys played beneath the gazebo and Mindy Bechtell painted the event throughout the evening. Mollie Eckman at the Rainbow Ranch planned the exquisite event. Blue Chamomile styled Katie’s hair and Rachael Long did her makeup.

An old barn on Davis

It was just after my last wedding job in Bozeman that I FINALLY stopped to take a few pictures at an old barn on Davis. I drove past almost daily for a good chunk of time last year and always wanted to stop, but never had. Either I didn’t have my camera, or I was nervous the property owner would holler at me!

I hesitated as I ran over to the barn preparing to attempt charm and explain myself, but I knew this could very well be the last time I had the opportunity to get the shot I had envisioned for months. Despite my strappy sandals and floor length dress I plunged through the tall grass between the road and property line.

I’m glad to finally have these shots in my portfolio. As my mind wanders, I realize these shots will remind me to be daring. To always take the shot. To do what I’m afraid I *might* get in trouble for.
