Two Essential Qualities To Find In A Photographer
1. Delight. You want photographers with a positive presence, who are genuinely excited to make photos with you. We believe that brings out the best in people.
2. Professionalism. Making images is all we do. Our experience, gear, publishing credits, and recognition may distinguish us as successful, but what makes our day is to reliably hear that we're the hardest working photographers our clients have seen. We are used to pressure, and love proving ourselves polite and dependable under it.

Photos For the Dead
Marriage Equality Day
Slikati is Two Photographers
We photograph every shoot together, and can't imagine doing it any other way. We're often the point of calm in a day's changing weather, outfits, and timelines, and we're told that our relaxed approach lets people enjoy themselves in front of the camera. We value being adaptable, and believe in being fussy only about quality. Our visual approach blends candid sharp-shooting with fashion magazine artistry, drawing on over a decade's worth of skill anticipating, lighting, and editing images, but never letting wizardry override heart.
It's hard to put into words how wonderful Tom and Tonya are. We booked them about a year in advance of our wedding and they communicated with us so clearly and professionally from the first meeting that it completely put our minds at ease about the photography on our big day. The day of our wedding they blew our expectations out of the water. Along with their team they captured every moment and portrait perfectly. As people who need direction posing, they gave us direction to make our photographs look better while making us laugh the whole time. They were able to give us enough attention that they caught all of the moments we want to relive while somehow blending into the reception and ceremony seamlessly. I cannot recommend them enough. Our wedding was so amazing and overwhelming, but Tom and Tonya were so consistent and were there for every tear, kiss and moment of laughter. Looking back on our enormous selection of memories I am so grateful that we were lucky enough to book Slikati. PS I would also recommend booking their package that includes hair for the bride and bridesmaid. Janae Naab was outstanding completely nailed my vision.
Ballet Bitterroot Dance Academy
Tom and Tonya are kind, professional, flexible, prepared and relaxed. They did an amazing job taking photos of our 50+ dance students, both group and individual photos. They worked so well with the dancers of all ages and went above and beyond to have fun with the 3-6 year olds. If you hire Slikati Photography you won't be disappointed!
Slikati was beyond amazing! From the engagement photos to our wedding day, they were nothing short of perfect! Tom and Tonya were so helpful in every aspect and were extremely kind. They have so many great ideas for photos and were open to new suggestions as well. They made the day go by smoothly and worked very hard to get the best photos possible! I received so many compliments from family members as well. They were very pleased with Slikati! Definitely worth EVERY penny, I am extremely happy I chose them for my special day!
Tom and Tonya are amazingly talented, and truly the sweetest people. We are so grateful that we made the decision to have them capture our September 2nd wedding. They are extremely thorough, and from the minute they arrived on our special day I was blown away by them. They kept things moving smoothly, and both have such a great creative eye. Every time I noticed a "moment" happening, I would look up and Tonya was there capturing it. I have no idea how she does it! The images we have seen so far in our preview are gorgeous, and we cannot wait to see the rest in our full gallery. For anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the Missoula area, I HIGHLY recommend Tom and Tonya. You will be so glad you chose them!
Tom and Tonya have an eye for perfection and a persistent but relaxed spirit. They will get that perfect shot you are looking for!
I don't even know where to begin. Picking Slikati to photograph our wedding was the best decision! (besides getting to marry my best friend/lover of course) They were hilarious, polite, professional, kind, and just overall amazing! We love all of our pictures. We got so many compliments on the pictures and Tom and Tonya. They are the best!
