We’re Cluney Photo: Mark & Angela, husband & wife, wedding photographers. We currently reside in Missoula, Montana. We specialize in Wedding Photography & Elopement Photojournalism, as well as Lifestyle Senior & Family Portraiture. We are available nationwide. We travel within an hour of Missoula, Montana and Las Vegas, Nevada without charge.
We met at a bible college in Northern California, got engaged after one month of dating, and got married six months after that. We had our first child, Eastwood, on January 3rd, 2012. We both have college degrees based in art & design; Mark from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Angela from Fresno State University. We love J. Crew and Bellocq tea. Mark likes to read. Angela loves the outdoors and is outside whenever she can be. Mark is partial to abstract art and classic photography. Angela loves interior & graphic design (check out her work at inkthepaperie.com). Mark grew up in Des Moines, Iowa and thinks it’s one of the best places in the world. Angela had never lived outside of California until June 2010.
I take a classic approach to photographing your wedding. Above all else, I’m a storyteller: documenting moments, capturing the emotions of one of the most important days in your lifetime. I emphasize the authentic. Timeless, classic, true; I aim far more towards showing your connection and love than any current trend in wedding photography. In 30 years, I want you to look at your photographs and feel the same way you did at the wedding. I think you deserve photos of your love story that are as timeless as your love.
You’re in love. You’re fun and creative. You’re easy going. You love that our style is classic without being traditional. You still value the beauty of the tangible (prints, albums, etc.). You want your photos to be timeless, capturing your connection and love for each other above all else. You love that we tell your story through moments and personal interactions, not by looking at the camera and smiling.
I want to connect with you beyond “style”…photography or otherwise. I want to meet you. I want to know you! I want to know what your lives look like outside of the wedding planning process. And, really, I need that to get the kinds of images I want to give you. The best photographs come when you’re willing to let me into your story. I won’t pose you to get the perfect photo…the perfect photo is going to come from your connection with each other. Letting me in on that connection is what creates a meaningful, timeless image.
So let’s meet. In person, over Skype…whatever works. I can’t wait.
