The best value of our entire wedding - they made our dreams come true!

The title says it all. We worked with Alicia as our planner and her husband Neal as our photographer. I can't recommend them enough. They helped us create a totally unique wedding event and we absolutely couldn't have done it without them. We came to them with some really unusual, some would say crazy, ideas, and they seriously didn't blink. They were patient, flexible, creative, professional, fun, thoughtful, devoted, talented - there aren't enough amazing adjectives to cover the amazingness they brought to our event. Our guests were stunned at the event we put together, AND, most fun of all, they were a pleasure to be around and have at our event. We got quotes from two other planners and they were way beyond our means, yet we could tell right away that Alicia and Neal fit our ethos much better AND provided above and beyond services that actually fit our budget. Feels like a miracle we found them and I'm still overwhelmed by the work and time they put in. Not to mention we LOVE the photos. Hire them!!

They are a power couple in the wedding industry!

We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner and photographer combo than Alicia and Neal. From the moment we began working together, Alicia’s exceptional communication skills put us at ease. Alicia understood our vision and turned it into a reality beyond our wildest dreams. Every detail was flawlessly executed. Alicia’s dedication to ensuring everything was perfect made the entire planning process enjoyable.

Neal’s impeccable attention to detail and artistic approach truly made our wedding photos come alive. He managed to perfectly capture the breathtaking beauty of Montana and the essence of our special day. The way he framed each shot and brought out the natural charm of our surroundings was simply remarkable.

Alicia and Neal are not only incredibly talented but also a pleasure to work with. Thanks to them, our wedding day was an absolute dream come true!

Just as we had imagined...

Alicia and Neal were our wedding photographers, officiant, and planners all in one. They took our dream of getting married and spending a day fly fishing on the Madison River, and made it a reality. We completely relied on them for the venue, hair and makeup, flowers, etc. since we were thousands of miles away. The vendors they set us up with were better than I could have imagined. Also, they scouted out venues several times to find our perfect spot, and were willing to change it at the last minute in order to accommodate the weather. The pictures Neal took were outstanding quality, and he made us feel so at ease and comfortable in each shoot. I cannot say enough great things about this duo and would 100% recommend them to anyone looking to get married (or for any type of photos) in Montana.
