Ellie and Carl joined lives and families last week in their Big Sky Chapel, Montana wedding ceremony. The wedding was appropriately kid-centered, and that element made the event so special and fun to photograph and attend.

Bozeman Dog Calendar a Success

Filed under families,kids,pets and their people Tags: , , — • Written by Doug Loneman @ 10:01 am

hov checkpassing 2blila1Thanks to everyone who bought the Dogs of Bozeman Calendar and everyone who donated pets and time to make this project a great success. We were able to donate over $3400 to Heart of the Valley for scholarships to dog training classes. Dogs have a tremendously higher successful rate of adoption if their new owners attend these classes. We expect this will make Bozeman an even better dog town and make a lot of dogs very happy with their new owners!

The project would never have come together without the generosity Holly and Josh at Dee O Gee and the immense graphic talents of Maria at Visual Grease.  We are already working on the 2016 Dogs and Their People Calendar. Check our facebook throughout the year as we ask for more dog and owner volunteers.

Again….Thanks Everyone!!!

Bozeman High School Senior Photographer

Filed under seniors Tags: , , , — • Written by Doug Loneman @ 1:07 pm



One of the types of high school senior photos we like to do well during the session is the action photo that shows the senior’s passion. It can range from swimming to soccer to reading. The photos we take of seniors go beyond what they look like. Our images are all about who they are.

So much of weddings are about the bride, but the groom is integral  of course.  Bride’s are proud of the man they are marrying and I’m always sure to make a portrait of the groom that matches the brides pride. This groom was waiting for a first look with his bride prior to their ceremony at Rainbow Ranch Lodge in Big Sky, Montana last summer. He is such a nice person and unaware of how handsome he is, but his bride knows that and I wanted to have that reflected in his portrait.

We photograph a lot of weddings in Montana and the Northwest, and every now and then in far flung places around the world. We’ve photographed wedding from Alaska to Hawaii to Texas to New York and Florida, but I never expected Italy. The Italian wedding pictured here was a story book wedding in an Italian villa. Across the road from the villa stands a castle and on the other side of the property are vineyards.

While this Italian wedding venue was fantastic, it reminds me that a wedding no matter the size, budget or local is equally important to the couples who are exchanging sacred vows to one another. I give each wedding my very best effort. Each couple deserves it.

A couple of years ago we photographed this couple’s destination wedding at Paws Up Resort outside Missoula, Montana. Going back to look at weddings we photographed through the years, this one reminds me of how timeless a good image can be. And how valuable great wedding photos are for the couple and their families. 

So If you save money here and there on your wedding plans; please remember that the images are the only thing left of the day. It’s worth spending what budget you can afford on a photographer who you trust to give you amazing images.

Montana Family Photography

Today I’m making prints for families from fall sessions. This ought’a warm up winter in their house. Our approach to family photography is to use the beauty of the mountains around Bozeman and Big Sky to make a family photo that is active and artful. Sunset and sunrise are great times of day for showing the depths of the Montana mountains and sky.
