Sari + Lucas: Great Northern Resort, West Glacier, Montana {Tacoma Destination Wedding Photographer Tacoma, WA}

It was a Saturday. It was clear as can be with only a few scattered clouds in the sky.  The sun had already started to shown as Annie , my second shooter, and I prepared for Sari + Lucas's big day.  I was thrilled at the idea of shooting a wedding in Montana so when Sari and Lucas approached Isaiah and I a little over a year ago to shoot theirs, we jumped at the opportunity.  Glacier is one of the nation's most beautiful National parks and made the perfect backdrop for Sari + Lucas's day.  The trip to Montana was an adventure itself, you can read a little about it here, but to celebrate with this couple, totally worth it. This wedding represented this couple to a T, completely relaxed, outdoors in the mountains surround by the folks they loved.  When I met Lucas for the first time, a little over a year ago, we were just starting our business and he had just started dating Sari.  A friend and I made the long journey to Montana and had the opportunity to hang out with Lucas and meet his "new" girl.  I loved how perfect, even then, they seemed for eachother.  Sari was completely supportive, completely adored Lucas and a perfect match to his adventurous outdoor spirit.  I remember looking at "Britney," as I often called her on that trip because she looks like Britney Spears, and thinking- these two are totally eachother's match.

Two weeks ago, Annie Brown of Let It Shine Photography and I got to spend the weekend recording this very special moment in time, around campfires, sleepovers and great cheer and we were so thankful to be a part of it.

You can check out my dear friend, fellow photographer here AND her wedding that was earlier this month here ( yes yes, married for just over a week and leaving her husband to help me shoot a wedding).
