I’ve gathered up my Best of 2017 Wedding Photography by Greener Visuals Photography images that made during this recent trip around the sun. As the last days of the year tick away, I find myself reflecting back on all of the fun photos I made of my wedding couples over the course of this past year. 2017 was a lot of fun! Lots of growth, new places explored, new challenges overcome, new faces met and many good times were had. I feel blessed for all the new relationships I made throughout the year and for being able to tell candid, creative stories through photographs! I look forward to what “adventures in documenting the love” await me in 2018.

If you or a loved one you know is in need of new family portraits, business portraits, head shots, engagement photos, boudoir or an epic wedding photographer, Greener Visuals Photography is available for all your professional photographic experiences in 2018! I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy New Year everyone! -M

Back in October, I packed up my cameras and traveled northeast to the city of Seattle to make some “Day in the Life” family photographs of Kim and Daniel and their two girls. Upon my arrival into Seattle, we decided to load up the Subaru and make a day trip north to the small coastal town of Bellingham Washington (near the Canadian border) where we explored the beaches, rainforests, parks and the surrounding community. It was great to have another opportunity to photograph this awesome family. Years ago, before kiddo number two came into the picture, I photographed these guys here in Bozeman, Montana as they were traveling through town. I had a great time with these guys. This time it was fun to explore their home turf and a new photographic canvas to work with. Bellingham is a beautiful place. Here are some of my favorite images from my time with them. -M

Rockin TJ Ranch Greener Visuals Photobooth Prospera Business Network

I had a blast playing in my Greener Visuals Photo Booth with the attendees of this year’s Prospera Business Network Prosperity Party at Rockin TJ Ranch last night. Great people having fun and supporting Montana business owners. While all the photos were taken by the people in the photo, here were some of my favorite moments that stood out. Greener Visuals Photography strives to support local organizations that work towards bettering the community in Montana. So glad I could be apart of it. Check out the awesome and enjoy! -M

Yellowstone National Park Wedding Day

This summer I had the privilege of making the Yellowstone National Park Wedding Day Photos of Judy and Butch outside Mammoth, Wyoming. These two traveled from Beavercreek, Ohio to get married in our nation’s most popular national park. We had their small ceremony in the Mammoth Chapel then celebrated with a post-ceremony picnic where we ate lunch and had a small wedding cake. Because it was just them in attendance, we took the afternoon to explore the park and make some fun outdoor wedding portraits on their special day. It was a great way to celebrate the 4th of July this year! I wish these two years of happiness! Congrats! -M

The other day I drove out to the banks of the Madison River to meet up with my friends Sky and Tara for their evening engagement photo session. I’ve known these two for years and this date had been a long time coming. It’s so exciting to see them together as their wedding date approaches. They are so excited. I would be hard pressed to find a better match of personalities. We decided to photograph their engagement photos in a spot near and dear to them, the Madison River. Both are avid fly fisherman and we have all spent many a day together trying to entice the Montana trout to eat. We loaded up Sky’s drift boat and cast off into the current. As we floated downstream, we stopped to make photos along the way. It was an absolute fine way to spend an afternoon – floating a blue ribbon trout stream and documenting the love. These two tie-the-knot in two weeks! I am so excited for them. Congrats you guys! -Mike

I had the pleasure of joining the Rigard Family for some long overdue family portraits at Hyalite Canyon near Bozeman, Montana. Jen and Ryan have been friends of mine for years and I was honored when they hired me to photograph their family. We explored the areas around the reservoir and played around in the evening sun light. I was really pleased with how they turned out. Here are some of my favorites from the day. -Mike

Man, I love the summer time! I’ve been making tons of family portraits and the wedding season has been in full swing. In addition, I’ve been puppy training and traveling so much that I’m just now finally getting around to posting some recent photography work of mine. Back in late May, I had the pleasure of photographing some friends Lacey and Rory for their maternity portrait session here in Bozeman, Montana. These two were so excited to have their photos created. We will be doing part two later this year when their little one gets a little bigger. For this part, we decided to hike around the “M” Trail at the edge of the Bridger Mountains just outside of town. The evening light made for not only a lovely walk but also prime light for making some cool photographs. We had a great time. Here are some of my favorite images from the day. So excited for your new family you guys! -M

It’s amazing to me how busy we all can get wrapped up in our own lives. We are all guilty of it. While my parents are living close by in Missoula, my brother Eric and his wife Brandy are starting their new family in Anchorage, Alaska with their new daughter Molly. My sister has been busy working to finish her veterinarian school in Colorado. The Greener clan has been spread out over the last couple of years and we only manage to see each other once a year. So when the opportunity to meet up last week in Missoula with my siblings, their families, my parents and grandma, naturally I wanted to bring my camera to document the rare family gathering. We were more concerned about hanging out and playing with my niece who is turning into a fun little kid. We kept things casual and I made pictures when the creativity struck. Time flies when you are having fun and living life. Blink and eye and nieces, puppies and the rest of us all grow up. We had a lot of fun spending time together and I will cherish these moments. These are the good times. Here are a few of my favorites. -M

A few weeks back I drove out to Helena to meet with my wedding clients Marissa and Tyler to make some fun engagement photos of them at the Old Shooting Range Trailhead just outside of town. These two are great people and will be tying the knot this summer in Virginia City, Montana. In between their busyness working at our state capital, they frequently take walks around the various trail systems around Helena and they wanted to have their engagement photos in one of their favorite outdoor settings. We spent a couple hours exploring the hillsides, playing with their pup and making some fun photos of them. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together. I can not wait for August. -M

Missouri Breaks State Park Engagement Photo Session

A few weeks back I had the pleasure of meeting Dani and John to make some fun engagement photos of them out at the Missouri Breaks State Park in central Montana. These two were recipients of my engagement photo session giveaway contest that I held at this year’s 2017 A Montana Wedding Event at The Commons in Bozeman Montana and they chose to have their session at one of their favorite places. It’s a beautiful spot with a mixture of rocky cliffs and grasslands that overlooking the Missouri River. It was a really cool place to explore with them. These to are all set to be married in the summer of 2018 and I couldn’t be more excited for them. Here are some of my favorites from our time together. -M
