Soft, romantic, and natural. There is something about golden hour engagement photography that perfectly portrays the connection between lovers, and Dylan and Kailey are no exception. From the beautiful scenery to the ethereal lighting, and of course, this beautiful MT couple, we are love-struck by this charming Missoula engagement session captured by Cheers MT vendor, Jenna Ballard Photography!
Their Tee-rific Marriage Proposal
Although Dylan and Kailey’s dad both work together, Dylan and Kailey first met at a mutual friend’s baby shower!
After dating for some time, Dylan and Kailey decided to go golfing at The Ranch Club in Missoula with her parents, which was a typical Sunday afternoon for the couple. While everything seemed normal, Kailey didn’t yet realize that this day was going to be one she would remember for the rest of her life! As she puts it,
We were almost done with our round, but on the 17th hole he had planned for my sister to put a golfball ring box with my ring enclosed in the hole, so when I made my putt there would be a surpise! He asked to see it, as he got down on one knee. I had no idea I would soon be saying yes to the most kind-hearted man in the world surrounded by the people I love most!Kailey, Bride-To-Be

For their engagement photoshoot, Dylan and Kailey chose Council Grove State Park as their beautiful backdrop. Often used as a location for bird watching, fishing, and hiking, Council Grove State Park is a historical site with access to the Clark Fork River and a forested area featuring stunning ponderosa pines and cottonwoods. With this perfect backdrop, Jenna was able to capture the strong bond between Dylan and Kailey. Accompanied by the most perfect golden hour, their engagement photos are to-die-for!
