" We were able to actually enjoy the day, time with each other, and loved ones without feeling like it was just a full day long photo shoot. After it’s all said and done photography is the one thing you actually get to take away from your wedding day and in my opinion that makes it priceless. It was an honor to have Elizabeth Lanier behind the lens captured the moments that we’ll cherish for a lifetime."

- Whitney, a former Montana Wedding Bride

Nearly all of the celebrations Elizabeth Lanier photographs are multi-day destination events and no matter where in the world they take place, the logistics are well thought out in advance. We value the opportunity to photograph new locations with a completely fresh perspective and plenty of creativity. In addition to the setting, we revel in getting to know our couples with a pre-wedding session in the days before the wedding. This provide the opportunity for couples to be comfortable and ease in photos which makes for the ultimate wedding weekend gallery.
