Huge shoutout to Alden and also to Leslee Anne who did such a wonderful job with my hair and makeup. Thanks so much ladies!!!

I'd love to hear what you think, I'm so super excited about it. And it will be featured on my new website in roughly 8 billion years when I finish it.

Kristin & Tucker // Jackson Hole Hot Air Balloon Wedding

Kristin and Tucker got up at the crack of dawn to start the preparations for their wedding day. Actually, BEFORE the crack of dawn...I got to the house around 5 am and Kristin was already deep in the makeup chair, getting ready. Virginia over at Vibrant Events of Jackson Hole and Margaret at Elevated Ballooning pulled together a super fun dream team of vendors for the very first Elevated Weddings wedding - Persephone Bakery, The Silver Bungalow, Gild the Lily Too, Shayne Cosmetics, Hair & Makeup by Tanya, and Mountain Media all worked their butts off to make it all happen. I had a great time (even getting up at 4:30 in the morning!) and am so excited for this venture to take off (pardon the pun, ha!)

A few favorites -

Henderson Family / Jackson Hole family photographer

The Henderson family made the trip out to Jackson from Oklahoma for a summer National Park vacation and decided to have some family portraits done while they were out here. We met up bright and early up north of town and had a super fun session. Some favorites -

The kids were super excited about the horses - we spent a good amount of time petting and feeding them.

Morgan & Lucas / Jackson Hole Wedding Photographer

   

 

Morgan & Lucas got married in August at St. John's Episcopal church here in Jackson. Morgan's family has strong ties to Jackson - her parents got married at the Chapel of the Transfiguration and her grandmother still lives here - so when they got engaged it was a no-brainer to have the wedding here.

The reception was at the lovely Forbes Ranch north of town, which is as beautiful a spot as I've ever seen. +1!! :)

Some favorites -

Love her expression!!

The grand entrance. Nice work, ushers.

I love how happy Morgan looks!

Making it official.

On the butte above Forbes Ranch...not too shabby, eh?

They're so cute! And so perfect for each other - you could just feel the love. I'm not usually this cheesy, I swear.

 

My favorites from the day.

The wedding party went down to the Snake River to have some alone time between the ceremony and reception - such a gorgeous spot!

Cham-pag-na (insert Billy Crystal here).

Morgan's dad giving his toast.

Time to dance!!

 

Thanks to Morgan and Lucas for having me at your special day - I had a fantastic time and am so glad you got the burrs out of your dress. :) Much happiness to you both!!

Sarah & Eric / Jackson Hole Elopement Photographer

Sarah and Eric came out to Jackson Hole from Missouri to have a sweet backyard elopement at their officiant's house in the town of Jackson. After a short and sweet ceremony we did some photos around the area (helloooo Flat Creek, pretty!!) and then headed up north to get the Tetons in a few images. Some favorites -
