This shoot by Samantha Lord is for all those couples who find the space where prairies meet the mountains as romantic as all get out, and long for a way to incorporate this sort of majestic landscape into their own love story. Though MJ + Fredo are tying the knot on Long Island in New York, the couple decided to plunge themselves into the wilds of Montana for an engagement session quite unlike anything one could conjure up on Long Island! Dramatic skies, sweeping vistas, rippling mountain waters, and a breeze you can practically feel on your face set the stage for this utterly romantic engagement session. And as a teaser, MJ + Fredo have a second wardrobe they used for their shoot near Bozeman, but to take a peek you'll have to check it out on Vale + Vine's Instagram + Facebook feeds!
If you're looking for a similar setting on the Canadian side of the Rockies, the foothills west of Calgary, Alberta or the majestic scenery of Canmore near Banff would fit the bill perfectly. Alternatively, you could explore Alberta's foothills farther north near Jasper. If you're interested in checking out the scenery in Canmore, here are a few styled portraits by Kristen Wood from her Canmore shoot featured on Vale + Vine this past fall.
