Here are a few shots from a recent family shoot. We love when we get to continue to work with the same wonderful people. Leah and Jay are no exception. In 2008, Kene photographed their wedding at Springhill Pavilion and this July he photographed them plus one. I met their adorable son the morning of the shoot and man was I jealous. I wanted to photograph this kid he had such a great smile.
There are some truly great moments captured here. Family photography is one of our passions at Eye in the Sky. We love weddings, but when we get to continue the journey and see how a family has grown and changed years later, that is truly special.
See what I mean, look at this smile!
Wow what an amazing event held n Sunday night by the BSCC. You guys did a fantastic job putting on this event and it was a hit with the donations, food and music.
There are such great people in this community that give back and really have a vested interest in seeing Big Sky grow and expand as a community.
Thanks so much to Jessie Neal, Eric Ladd, and Krista Mach for making this happen. Also to the Corral for catering the event and and to all who donated to the auction
I know this event will grow over the years and I look forward to seeing the expansion happen in Big Sky with the Parks and Trails. By adding and enhancing trail systems and parks/rec in Big Sky, we are creating assets to the community and a stronger foundation for generations to come.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Thought we’d start the week off by sharing some pretty spectacular images with you.
Just a simple sweet ceremony with a few in attendance right on the Gallatin, yet there was still so much emotion and love. Kene really captured the people, the place, the light and everything that makes a Montana wedding so special.
Congratulations Jacque and Mark!
Location: San Marino Cabins, Big Sky, MT
As you may have noticed from Facebook, we have a new face around Eye in the sky, Ryan Day Thompson. He has joined the team as Kene’s full-time second shooter, editing and book design master and as the comic relief, just see below. Ryan is incredibly passionate about photography especially adventure photography, check out his Facebook page to see and become a fan.
Welcome to the team Ryan!
And here’s a little straight from the source…
Hi, my name is Ryan Day Thompson.
I’m a photographer, an adventurer, a spare-time thinker, a lover of all things life, passion and beauty, husband to Amelia, and father to Cedric, my almost three year old. I started photographing in 2001, on a high school backpacking trip. The whole trip was terrible (it rained for seven days non-stop) but I took eight rolls of film. I have been more or less addicted to the image ever since and took a summer to educate at Rocky Mountain School of Photography’s SI program in 2003 (which is where I met, Kene Sperry, photographer extraordinaire and the only person I’ve ever met who apparently knows everyone everywhere).
Some things you’ll want to know about me:
– I’m passionate about photography, but more than any type, I LOVE to shoot adventurers on adventures in harsh environments interacting with the incredible world in which we live. I’ve had some sweet clients in my first year as an adventure photog with Rock and Ice Magazine, Urban Climber Magazine, and National Geographic Books to name just a couple.
– I’m always trying to lighten a given situation. (Just ask Tori, she’s known me for a month and she’s probably exhausted by now of me trying to make every situation into a comedy.)
– I shoot film for all of my personal, portrait, and non-Eye In the Sky work. Actual, physical product, film. As in, rolls of film. I love it. Analog forces me to slow down and think about what’s happening.
– I’m obsessed with taking photos of my kid.
– I’ve photographed 80+ weddings by myself from coast to coast (I literally shot a wedding in San Diego, Daytona Beach, and Brandon, Vermont in one summer.) I love weddings, and I’m totally stoked to work with Eye in the Sky and watch our visions blend together.
See you out there!
