Montana Wedding Photographer

Sweetgrass Studio

Photography for Adventurous Souls and the Madly in Love

Hi, I’m Heather! I’m lucky enough to live, work, and play in beautiful Paradise Valley, Montana. My expertise is capturing you and your loved ones authentically. Your story, your day, your details, told in photo form, and cherished forever.

I’m a calm, cool, and collected photographer who knows how to make you feel comfortable behind the camera. I learn what makes you light up and we have a great deal of fun while we’re at it. While posed shots have their time and place, your wedding day is captured through story telling and moments of love and laughter. Your wedding day is one of the very best days of your life and I will be there to capture every moment perfectly for you.


I offer a complimentary Engagement Session with every Full Coverage Wedding.

Heather was our photographer for our elopement in May 2022 & we are SO grateful she was the one capturing our special day. She was so kind, easy to work with, and made it all feel really natural instead of staged. We are so happy with our wedding photos and get compliments all the time on the quality. I can’t recommend Heather enough.

I used Sweetgrass Studio for an early Christmas present to my partner. He has had his puppers for 16 years and I wanted to catch some moments of them together as well as a few other family photos. Heather’s energy and patience with our dogs was amazing and we got the shots we were hoping for and more! I can’t wait to get some of them framed for our new home and cherish these photos for our lifetime. Thank you!"

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

My style is naturally warm and soft. I edit in a way that captures the beauty of Montana without removing the gorgeous blues, greens, and tans that make this place so magical. Your florals will pop and your skin tones are smooth and even. Everything kept natural, light, and airy.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

My first job in Montana was working as a photographer for the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana. It was there that I began capturing portraits, action photography, and everything in between. After my first wedding, I was hooked. I leave every night with my face hurting from smiling for 8+ hours straight behind my camera. It's the most fulfilling job in the world!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

I currently without hesitation travel anywhere in the beautiful state of Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. I've shot weddings in Texas, Alabama, and Florida. I love to travel and will always consider out of state weddings!

What are your favorite activities to do in The Rockies?

I'm an avid adventurer with two rambunctious pups who explore with me on the daily. I love to fly fish, hike, bike, and backpack. Want to do your elopement on the top of a mountain? In my drift boat while catching massive brown trout? Want to jump in the river at sunset? I'm your girl for any of the above and love when my passions come together during a shoot.
