I haven't been too motivated to shoot lately with the smokey skies, so I pulled out some photos from when skies were clearer. #montanaskies #leadinglines
What is something that is commonly hated but you don't mind or actually enjoy?
Tomorrow's summit views we likely be full of rainy clouds and forest fire smoke. Regardless, It will be walking and exploring in His glorious mountains #godscountry #mtbigskyseries #naturalmontana #visitmontana #distinctlymontana #outsidebozeman #montanacaptured #gostaymt #naturalmontana #mtadventure #nikond3300 #tokina1116 #getoutside #explore #neature #howneatisthat #thatsprettyneat
Hello MT bby ✨
Be Fire Aware! 👤: @willowfantino 📷: @mattzoeteman
Montana is always a sunrise away from looking like a painting.
The Reynolds Mountain Climbers Trail is becoming quite popular to the non-climbing crowd. It is quite easy to see why when there are views like this!
What is your "go to fact" when asked for a piece of trivia?
August 17th 1959 a earthquake occurred on Hebgin lake causing a landslide onto unsuspecting campers. 29 persons lost their lives through the ordeal. The landslide formed Earthquake Lake. These trees stand in the lake as solemn reminders as to what must have been a fucked up evening.

Nolan and I made a few friends on our road trip...they were all animals😅🐐
Really hoping we get some rain from the ‘maybe rain‘ forecast this weekend. We could really use it over here #raindance
Just look at the colors and speckles on that beauty 😘
Hoping these ‘maybe’ rain showers over the weekend will help out our firefighters at least a little bit. We sure would love to get back outside to clear skies again! #raindance
Oh yeahhhhh 😊
It is hard to believe that the area above the lake in this photo is burning up right now. Things have certainly changed in 4 short months.
Reason #2 why the trip up Hilgard a couple years ago still hangs up at the top of my list. Such a special moment in an amazing place! Definitely the best rainbow I think I’ve ever experienced! Getting ready for a four day backpack trip onto the Lake Plateau tomorrow, so I’ll be off grid for a few days in some more breathtaking country! #hike #hiking #hikingadventures #hikemontana #backpacking #backpackinglife #camping #campsiteview #alpine #rainbow #summerstorm #stormyweather #mountains #mountainview #montana #montanamoment #naturalmontana #themontanascene #visitmontana #outdoors #optoutside #goatworthy #adventureisnecessary #salomonboots #timetoplay #ob4007 #themountainsarecalling
You don't get married in Glacier because it's safe and predictable. So when your ceremony location gets moved because there are too many grizzly bears in the area and you have to call the highway patrol to see if the highway is going to be closed from wildfires, you embrace the adventure and know that your gorgeous photos come with a bonus...killer stories!! . . . #mariannewiestphotography #mariannewiestphoto #montanaweddingphotographer #elope #weeloped #loveauthentic #glacierweddingphotographer #montanaphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #montana #glacierelopement #glaciernationalpark #gnp #bestofmontana #naturalmontana #bestweddingshots #glacierNPS #playglacier #intimateweddings #exploreglacier #elopementlove #alfredangelo

Pray for Glacier and all the firefighters as they try and tame the Howe Ridge Fire. Wishing I could be there to capture it but here’s a picture form early this year before the smoke wrecked everyone’s dreams of having a good view of the mountains. #glaciernps #glaciernationalpark #howeridgefire #mountains #mountaingoat #clouds #snow #bigskymontana #montanamoment #thegoodtimestate #beautiful #landscapephotography #canon5dmarkiv @glaciernps
#dogismycopilot and he takes his job very seriously. (Also, i should really wash my truck.)
Had a great time exploring Holland lake with my babe!❤️
Oh how I can get caught staring at the littlest of things; Simple Life.
On the list of animals I’d want to be, I’d have to put mountain goat way up near the top. You’d pretty much just get to climb mountains, eat, and hang out with all your goat buddies. Come to think of it, that’s kind of what I do now...🤔 . . . . . . . #wayfarecollective #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #glacier_national_park #mountaingoat #optoutside #wildlifephotography #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_vision #montanamoment #outdoortones #wildernesstones #roam #roamtheplanet #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_shots #montanawildlife #visitmontana #naturalmontana #exploretocreate #exploremore #igwildlife #visualsofearth #artofvisuals #earthshots #earthpix #earthfocus #nikonusa #animal_captures
On the hike up we passed a couple people heading down. They didn’t hike all the way to the lake saying most alpine lakes look the same. We begged to differ.
First huckleberry experience. I was fairly sure they were huckleberries after seeing people who were clearly only at the trailhead for picking. I tried one and wow, punch you in the face with flavor! Mitch was still skeptical and only decided to try one after I continuously ate them throughout the hike. Only at the end did he cave in. Felt like the lab rat 🐀
Aaaaand thats a wrap on my photos from Glacier! It was a hell of an awesome trip and I can't wait to get back. I was saddened to hear that a fire started and is growing around here - the Lake McDonald area. Hopefully the area affected eventually comes back stronger and even more beautiful. Stay safe out there and please follow all fire warnings / restrictions!! #Montana #GlacierNationalPark __________________________________________⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shot with - @sonyalpha A7RIII @ 29mm #SonyAlpha @indurotripods #InduroPushFurther ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ __________________________________________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌄Check out my new blog post through the link in my profile!

I have to leave in the morning. I don't want to. I might come back. I did not expect to find anything in Missoula, but it's kind of awesome here. Craft breweries and good food and outdoorsy shit and, oddly, a ton of great bands tour through here. It's a college town, I guess it all goes together... but that also means that there are academics here, and they're of the ecology and outdoorsy bent, too. . Could I stay here a while? Maybe. I wonder if i could finish my degree here...
Looks like we caught the tail end of the peak of the Perseid Meteor shower while capturing the midnight glow of the raging Howe Ridge fire in Glacier National Park. The fires are a natural process that serves the ecosystem, yet prayers still go out to the firefighters on the front lines and those whose homes are threatened.

My second attempt at the Milky Way and I even have Mars this time around! We really had to search high and low for a location due to all the heavy smoke around Montana. Luckily we were able to find a spot that was clear and the Milky Way was somewhat visible. I think this is a major improvement and there’s a million in one ways to edit it. This is my take. Btw... I was so cold up in the mountains last night. However, it felt great but I’m happy to be back home to relax and catch up. . . . . . .

Beautiful rich tasty huckleberries. You can tell we were successful just by our hands 😉
Pretty sweet drop off where Canyon Lake turns into Canyon Creek.
This just woke me up. View from the loft window. Found out last night I'm actually parked on private property that's been for sale for a while. . And now I want to buy it and clean it up and love it and put some cows on it and watch this sunrise every single day. . #nofilter #sunrise #montanamoments #explore #bigsky
Milky Way part two! I felt disconnected from my camera prior to leaving Michigan back in May, but I grew to love it during my summer in Montana! I didn’t think I’d ever figure out how to work this beast. I mean, I knew some of the basics but it was very overwhelming at first. I started focusing on the little details, trying different settings, and worrying less about perfection. I often like to do my best when I focus on something but I knew photography would be a huge challenge. I’m happy that I took my camera everywhere and practiced. I think it’s paying off. I hope to improve even more down the road. #steele_milkyway . . . . #nikonusa #renegade_dark #ig_skyvibes #raw_skies #raw_longexposure #raw_nightshots #longexposure #rebel_sky #igmw_skies #sky_captures #1longexposhot #tv_allskies #tv_allnature #ig_nature_naturally #planetoutside #worldfrommyangle #batpixs_night #batpixs_nature #breathtaking__snaps #onceupon_the_earth #everything_imaginable #hey_ihadtosnapthat #ipulledoverforthis #naturalmontana #mtbigskyseries #visitmontana #wow_america #bns_usa #fav_skies
The people at this fire lookout get paid to live two weeks at a time up in this beautiful corner of Montana. Seems like a dream job to me 😍
A smoky sunset on Highway 200 last week. It was so beautiful, I just had to stop in the middle of nowhere just to take it all in.
Tricolored Bumble Bee on Spear Thistle. Photographed at Four Dances Natural Area in Billings, MT last night. I got all excited when I saw the bright orange-red abdominal segments on these bees--I've never seen any bees before that were tri-colored like this! And, take a look at the bayonet-like points on those leaves! No wonder it's called Spear Thistle! #montanamoments #MyMontanamoment #montanamoment #naturalmontana #ViaAdventure #local .mt #billings #montana #fourdances #bumblebees #bees #tricolored #thistle #spearthistle #wildflowers

Oh Montana ❤️
Can’t beat fishing in Montana 🎣
Yesterday was a very sad, scary day for all of us who live near Glacier National Park, and for all of the people who visit the park and are planning their visit and wedding! But do you know how big and beautiful this park is? Big enough that when there is an awful fire raging where you were planning on getting married, a 45 min drive the other direction and you have this view. It's a lot like love. Sometimes our lives and our love don't fit our expectations, but a little adaptation and change of perspective and we can find beauty that surpasses what we were first dreaming of. <3 . . . #prayforglacier #glacierfires #mariannewiestphotography #mariannewiestphoto #montanaweddingphotographer #elope #weeloped #loveauthentic #glacierweddingphotographer #montanaphotographer #montanaweddingphotographer #montana #glacierelopement #glaciernationalpark #gnp #bestofmontana #naturalmontana #bestweddingshots #glacierNPS #playglacier #intimateweddings #exploreglacier #elopementlove
What food is surprisingly healthy despite a bad reputation?
Sunsets in beautiful places... there's not too much that beats 'em.

This was our view a mere 7 weeks ago. Now the western shore of Lake McDonald (left of frame) is engulfed in flames and the air choked with smoke. So sad to see the pictures of the inferno today. Hopefully the firefighters and park staff keep safe while fighting these blazes. Forest fires are obviously a natural part of the health of the ecosystem, but it is still sad to see the destruction in the places we love. . . . #glaciernationalpark #findyourpark #nps #nationalparks #usinterior #nationalpark #visitmontana #montana #keepitwild #liveoutdoors #getoutside #optoutside #neverstopexploring #goexplore #forestfire #glacier_national_park #outsideisfree #lakemcdonald #letsgosomewhere #kidsinnature #nature #landscape #naturalmontana #themontanascene #bestofmontana #lastbestplace #montanagram #adventureculture #nationalparksgeek #ig_naturelovers . 📷: @savydaveoutdoors

What's a small change to a simple food, but makes it so much better?
Harper's Bridge, Clark Fork River, MT— For the first time in my life, I actually feel like a "digital nomad". This morning I find myself apologizing to clients for being out of pocket last week, and I have set up camp here on the far side of the Clark Fork River at the foot of the Ninemile Divide in Lolo National Forest. . There's a cell signal here. That's why I'm here. . I mean, there are other things I love about this spot, but mainly...there's cell service and I can work. And when I can work, I can make the $$$. And when I do that, I can keep driving this old truck around...and I do love to do that. In fact, after re-charging in the woods outside of Sumpter, I've not wanted to sit still since. I love the driving. I love my audiobooks, and I love going 50mph down slow twisting highways through mysterious Middle America. I love it all. I embrace this "Digital Nomad" term, finally. . It works for me.
Standing on the spine of the world. 🌎
Winter in August? Making it to this snowpack (and farther!) is one of the most challenging, terrifying things I've ever done. Despite my asthma, my back, and a pretty crippling fear of heights here I am. I never would have made it up here without my friends. Thanks guys for pushing me forward.😻 @brenna.does @brigidmulroe @will.cre
