It was a heck of a day getting there, but once all of us showed up, and got there (yay for zero cell service and google maps being wrong) we hiked three miles in for the lookout and was just blown away by the vastness of the Bitterroots. We could see Idaho and Montana from where we were and it was breathtaking. The couple was amazing, they had just gotten married, and after the stress of a big production wedding, and photos they just weren’t too thrilled with, being able to take them out hiking which is a favorite thing of their’s and just soak up this amazing state meant everything. All of us vendors hiked in and out all of our gear, including florals, tablescapes…all of it. Just like any couple would for an adventure elopement. I mean, any shoot or elopement that requires me to pack my backpacking bag is a recipe for an amazing time. The whole shoot felt so “Idaho” and as an Idaho native, it just felt so good to celebrate this beautiful state. From the florals to the color schemes to the feather’s tucked in the groom’s pocket being from Idaho native birds…it was a true homage to the state.
