Jessie Hardy Photography
Montana Wedding Photographer- I was born and raised in Montana and never plan on leaving. The outdoor adventures I am able to have with my couples is something I can never imagine giving up. I have had a passion for photography since I was 11 years old when I bought my first vintage camera in Billings, Montana. I have a passion for capturing memories in golden, sunlight-filled photographs. I cherish the “in-between” moments the most- the moments that normally go unnoticed, but are usually the most special. The intimate details of a wedding day should be documented, and I cherish being able to do that for my clients.
Jessie is a natural at what she does! She makes you feel so comfortable that you forget you’re taking photos. Throughout our wedding process Jessie became more than a wedding photographer to us, she became a friend. She puts her whole heart into what she does and her photos reflect her passion and pure talent for photography!
One of the many, yet biggest, decisions for us anyways was trying to choose a photographer who fit our style, our vision, cared to get to know us as a couple, and most importantly someone that we could trust to capture all of the raw, beautiful, fun moments of one of the best days of our lives. Simply, all I can say is that it was meant to be and we are so very thankful that we chose Jessie! She exceeded every single expectation of ours and then some. From the moment she walked in to the house where we were all getting ready, I knew that we had made the right choice. She was so comforting, excited, and ready to seize the day with us! I felt like we had known each other for years. She lightened the mood so much due to the weather that we were dealing with that morning. 😅 She put my mind at ease throughout the entire day and I appreciated that so much. She was amazing at staying organized, keeping our crazy bunch in line, and communicating/ accommodating not only on our wedding day, but throughout our entire engagement. Posing for pictures can definitely be awkward sometimes, I think we’ve all been there lol, but Jessie had a way of taking all of that away and made everyone feel so comfortable!
Jessie is the absolute best to work with. She is super fun and creates amazing work that’s both natural and dreamy. She photographed both my engagement pictures and wedding pictures, and I wouldn’t change a thing about the entire experience. She made my wedding day so special and created an environment that everyone enjoyed being apart of. She was very energetic which was a hit with my wedding party and created the best pictures. She captured pictures that directly reflects the emotions and love that was shared throughout the day. Her photos are a wonderful reminder that help us relive the most amazing day. I have only the best things to say about Jessie; she is absolutely amazing and I would recommend her to anyone!
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? I love couples who feel free to laugh, be authentic, and love to adventure outdoors.
How did you get started in the wedding industry? I got started in the wedding industry by photographing my friends wedding as a gift. After an amazing experience, I decided to shift my focus from families to weddings.
Do you travel for clients? If so, where? I travel all across the state of Montana, Wyoming, the Dakotas, as well as destination locations.
What is your favorite part about a wedding? My favorite part of the wedding day is during sunset photos. It is usually the first time the couple is truly alone together (besides their vendor sidekicks, of course) and can bask in the idea of being husband and wife.
