About Us

Hey! We are Garrett and Jacqui,
Montana wedding and boudoir photographers.


Authentic Montana love stories give us life. We both grew up in Montana and, as the saying goes, have "the same s*** on our boots as you do."

We love where we live. We love the history, and grandeur, and poetic beauty that is the Big Sky State. We work in a building constructed in 1884, and constantly stare out our studio windows at Mt. Helena, only two minutes away.

We think weddings, like the wild Montana mountains, deserve to be observed with splendor, and that splendor turned into art. Our job is to create images that you are just as excited about in thirty years as you are on your wedding day.

We document legacy. We cherish authentic. We aim for connection.

Do you?

Garrett and Jacqui

Garrett Thompson

Born in Choteau, Montana and while still leaving a chunk of my heart on the Rocky Mountain Front, I played football for Carroll College (GO SAINTS!). My attire consists of bolo ties and drink only gin. Country music dominates the radio station in my truck and I can speak anyone under the table in a hashtag battle. #Seriously #TryMe Also, I cry at father-daughter dances. It's a weakness.

Jacqui Smith

I’m a military wife to Russell, who is my high school sweetheart. We live in East Helena with our four children. My Montana roots are five generations deep. Coffee and The Big Sky run deep through my veins so I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious. My business card reads, "Photographer. Real Life Pirate. Professional Friend.", or at least it should. I go to weddings for the details, and the cupcakes. When I’m not at a wedding, I am photographing and empowering women.
