We approach wedding days as storytellers. The last image of the day can be just as important as the first. We know you'll enjoy your your photos for the rest of your life and that they have value well beyond what you pay for them. They're joyful, heartfelt, authentic and all about the people wild about each other and life!
The Photography Guide
What to Expect
Kelsey & Jake are a husband and wife team capturing love stories, intimate weddings and elopements. We met at a wedding and fell in love. Now, we focus on capturing and preserving wedding day memories with all the feels.
The Bachelor, beer, and adventure are just a few of our favorite things. Oh, yours too? See, we’re practically best friends already. We have two miniature schnauzers, Doc and Yzma (eeez-muh).
Jake is seriously the funniest person you’ll ever meet! He does a Christopher Walker impression better than Christopher Walken and he will be making you laugh all day! As a 3rd grade teacher (aka superhero) during the school year, he has some great tactics for getting those drunk groomsmen in line. He says his 3rd graders have similar attention spans. He loves pizza (and singing songs about it), hockey, and his favorite tv show is Rick and Morty.
Kelsey is honestly the kindest, most endearing person to have with you on your wedding day. You not only get a wedding professional, but basically a bonus bridesmaid!
Her bubbly personality will have you smiling all day long and her expertise will put you at ease on what may be the most important day of your life.
In her spare time, Kelsey enjoys cooking, gardening, camping and hiking. She is honestly the most driven and hard-working person - she puts so much attention into the details of every wedding day, you might actually think she’s one of your bridesmaids.
What to Expect
Full image galleries will be delivered within 3-4 weeks after your date. If you have ordered All Digital Images, your gallery will be set to download where you can save your images on your computer.
We LOVE destination weddings and elopements. Please reach out if your wedding is outside of Montana. We are SO THERE!
Montana travel fees are $50/hour of roundtrip travel. Any wedding further than 1 hour outside of Missoula, we require the hotel accomodation fee for two nights. We add the fee onto your invoice and put your deposit toward accommodation fees.
You will receive a custom made timeline tailored to you and your wedding needs. We start discussing timeline six weeks away from your date. We recommend 45 minutes for bridal session, 30 minutes for wedding party and 30 minutes for family photos.
What you Need in Order to Book
We require a $500 deposit at the time of booking to cover any accommodation costs and a signed contract. From there, you are set up with monthly payments that will come due 14 days before your wedding date. Because of the limited dates we have available, we cannot hold your date until we have a signed contract and deposit.
Family Photo List
We send out a worksheet to help you with your family photo breakdowns. We suggest you fill it out and designate one family member per family to facilitate it. We are not responsible for rounding up your guests. As much as we wish we did, we don’t know your family and the processes goes by smoothly with a family member making sure the list happens.
All fees paid are transferable to another date if there is a need to reschedule your wedding. Upon cancellation, all fees paid are non-refundable.
It is our mission statement to provide tangible validation of the love that exists in people’s lives through beautiful imagery. We want our couples to look back on their wedding album on their first, 10th, 50th anniversary and see the unfiltered love and emotion staring back at them. We want those moments to freeze time and live on forever. During the hard times of marriage, we want the images from the “best day ever” to give our couple strength and comfort to face all the challenges life throws their way. Opening their wedding album will remind them of the vows they made to each other and will renew and inspire your sense of adventure. The epic mountains you were photographed in are meant to make you feel alive.
It is our hope that, in some small way, when our couple sees the photograph of their joyful faces, full of raw love and dreams of the future together, it will remind them to live out their vows every. Single. Day. We hope that your children can look upon your happy day and know where their parents’ love story started. We hope that our couples can remember loved ones who may no longer be with them. By providing the tangible proof of love that exists in people’s lives, it can have the power to transform marriages.
Album Design Process
We work with you to choose the imagery for your wedding album. You choose your favorite photos and we expertly design a layout for you. We send you a proof of your album for you for approval.
Next, we send you digital samples of your choices for cover, artwork and size. There are so many options to choose from - linen or leather, gold foil or silver, image on the front or not. The options make your wedding album truly unique and special to you.
Captured Every Moment Perfectly
The Honeybee Weddings team captured every moment so perfectly. It's all we have now to remember our day, and we couldn't be happier to have such great people taking care of making that happen. They did a fantastic job, and we have gotten so many compliments about how wonderful all the photography is.

Can't Say Enough About These Two
Not only are they the most genuine, loving individuals, but they are the most amazing wedding photographers! Kelsey and Jake were also the best people to have with you on your wedding day - they made us laugh, kept our nerves down and were there for moral support.

Looking for the Best Photographer & Videographer
Wow, Honeybee Weddings were our photographers and videographers for our wedding day. I was looking and looking when we first got engaged for the best photographer and when I came across the Honeybee Weddings page I fell in love with their style. Once I started to get in contact with Kelsey it’s like we had been friends for quite a while! Kelsey was SO incredibly helpful and patient with me during the process and was so responsive whenever I had any questions. She even helped us create a timeline for our day to help us get started! Once we finally met in person it was so amazing. Seth and I were pretty nervous about taking pictures but they made us feel so relaxed and just added so much joy to an already amazing day. We were so lucky to have them.

A La Carte
Honeybee Weddings photographs couples in a way that will tell their love story. The storytelling part of our job is the most important. The candid moments of genuine, raw, emotion are what we are here to capture during styled sessions as well as the events of the wedding day. We always have a genuine relationship with our people so we can capture the real emotions and the “ness” of their wedding day. We treat all of our clients like friends. I mean, we’re basically besties by your messy-hair-don’t-care sendoff at the end of the night!
We photograph in a way to capture every emotion coming across on the wedding day because we know how important they are. When our brides look through their wedding albums, years or decades from now, we want them to feel something. We want them to tear up. We want them to fondly remember their wedding day. We want them to feel as though the images captured were genuine. We want them to remember the experience that we as photographers delivered to her.
We incorporate the landscape in our images to remind us of why our brides chose to be married in the beautiful place they were. Our brides want landscape portraits to decorate their walls and remind them of their adventurousness.
