Photographed by talented Montana wedding vendor, Ashley J Photography!

There is one thing we know for sure. It doesn’t get more Montana than this. We are head over heels for this stunning western-inspired styled bridal shoot photographed by the talented Ashley J Photography. From the horses to the rolling hills, to the stunning model in her free-spirited wardrobe, this shoot is as close to flawless as it gets!

When it comes to styling the perfect shoot, you just have to trust your gut. This stunning gallery, captured by Ashley J Photo, stands as proof! Ashley says that “I just get an idea in my head & can’t stop thinking about it until it happens”. When inspiration struck, Ashley was quick to reach out to Codie, the model in these photos, to collaborate. After renting the stunning Reclamation Laree Gown from The Kindred Soul, and picking up some baby’s breath from Albertsons, Codie and Ashley headed to a spot they knew with horses, and that’s when the magic started. As this talented photographer put it, “It really doesn’t have to be complicated. Just get out and shoot!”

 While these photos are truly the standard of perfection, every shoot has its unexpected moments. While these two were blessed with the perfect sun-shiny winter day, these gals were in for a true Instagram vs. reality moment! You’d never know from this stunning gallery, however, one of the horses took off mid-shoot! This being said, the show must go on, and Ashley and Codie harnessed their best cowgirl skills and were able to wrangle the horse, getting their shoot back on track!

 When it comes to Montana, there is beauty wherever you look. Whether you be in an area with vast mountainscapes, or even in the stunning flatlands that Montana is known for, you can’t go wrong. Ashley believes that “There is so much beauty in simplicity… a lot of the time we tend to overthink. Whether you’re the photographer or the person being photographed, there is always something beautiful to be captured”. Amen to that!
