We are Keely and Aaron, husband and wife of The Montoya Collective! Keely takes all of these beautiful photos you’ve seen, and Aaron is the mastermind behind the tear-jerking videography. We are based in Northwest Arkansas, but we travel all the heck over. A bit about us…
-DOGS. my dogs Luca and Olive (and every other dog in the world)
-deep dish pizza (the crappy pizza hut kind), —-french 75’s
My “why”: The love that makes up weddings is a driving force for me and the work I produce. Seeing the immense happiness between couples, their families, and their friends is my favorite thing in the world. I strive to connect with my couples on a deeper level, and getting people comfortable with me. Seeing those walls break down is an amazing thing.
Fun fact: I have chronic hiccups. Yup, it’s a thing.
-vanilla bean ice cream (Blue Bell)
-Zelda (OOT is my childhood)
My “why”: I have always loved taking photos and being creative. It wasn’t until Keely came into my life that I started to take videography more seriously as a career. Just one of the many things I have to thank her for. Music also holds a huge part of my creative heart. I try to learn whatever instrument I can get my hands on. So you may notice that the ebb and flow of a song plays a big part of the films I make. Every song I choose really connects with me. I can’t stop searching until I find just the right feel to match a wedding day. It is really important for me to be a calm presence during the day.
