  • Capturing epic elopements in Glacier Park is my happy place

I'm mom to four of the cutest kids on the face of God’s green earth. I’m a fourth generation Montanan, and I’m in love with this place I get to call home. From the shores of Flathead Lake to the peaks of Glacier Park, I am continually inspired by this part of the world. I have a vast knowledge of the area, and I’m eager to share my delight in this place. 

I have been in business for over ten years, and have an honest, easy-going approach that makes shooting with me fun and personal. I have an acute eye for detail and a passion for warm, natural, beautiful light. My specialty is epic elopement photography, and I love shooting in nature. I bring my fun and crazy personality to every shoot, and the photos are proof! You never have to worry about not feeling photogenic, I’ll make sure we will have a great time and make you look like your best self. I love what I do, and I know you will too.


"Marianne is incredible. Her art stands by itself as a testament of her talent and her ability to capture love between two people in the most precious moments. You can scroll through Facebook and Instagram to see that. And beyond that, Marianne is simply incredible. She's fun. She's ridiculously kind. She's very creative. She's super punny. I struggle to get photographed, standing in front of someone with a camera just feels awkward and rude to me, but Marianne's talent, kindness, and creativity simply puts all defenses aside. Because of COVID-19, our wedding was cancelled and as the world started to open back up, I stayed in contact with Marianne. When it was possible, we planned a very simple elopement, staying at her beautiful cabin in Marcus, Montana, then traveling to Polebridge. Marianne connected us with her father, an officiant, and she helped us along through every step of the elopement process. My wife and I truly feel we've met a friend for life. We'd recommend Marianne Wiest Photography to everyone."
