Welcome to the blog!

Sara & Adam // Jackson Hole wedding photographer

I love this wedding so much. Adam and Sara are both such wonderful people - laid back, fun to be around, and half of them could defuse a bomb if the situation called for it. They met on Match.com in the Chicago area and it just worked. Adam proposed and they decided on Jackson (their eventual retirement dream location - these two are definitely planners!) for the wedding and I'm so glad that they did.

Some favorites...

Sara did a first look with her dad and it was seriously the sweetest thing ever. I cried.

Lindsey & Eric // Chico Hot Springs wedding photographer

   

Lindsey is a fabulous wedding planner here in Jackson (although recently relocated to Napa, boo!!!!) who wanted to have her wedding out of the valley - totally understandable, once you plan weddings in Jackson Hole for a living it makes sense to want something different for your own. She and her fiance Eric (Dino to friends and family) settled on Chico Hot Springs for its great food, relaxed ambiance and of course the beautiful Montana scenery.

Some of my favorites from their day -

How GORGEOUS is this dress? The details are amazing and Lindsey totally rocked it.

Such a cute card from Lindsey to Dino - I got to be the mail carrier. :)

I love that Lindsey had her girls in white, such a great idea!

Their dog Pinky totally stole the show.

The wedding site is up the hill a bit from the condo area and is aptly named The Field of Dreams. Beautiful!

Shannon & Thomas / Grand Teton National Park backcountry wedding

Shannon & Thomas came out to Jackson to elope in Grand Teton National Park with some of their closest friends. When Shannon asked if I'd shoot in the park, of course I said yes right away, I shoot in the park all the time! When she asked about hiking up Cascade Canyon a ways, I said sure, why not...not really thinking about the gear I'd have to carry or asking how far 'a ways' might be. :) We ended up hiking about 2.5 miles up and in (and up...and up....) to a gorgeous little lake that I never got the name of. Everyone brought along their wedding clothes and changed once we got there - Shannon brought a full on wedding dress all the way in!

A few of my favorites -

The ferry at Jenny Lake.

Robin & Mike / Jackson Hole wedding photographer

   

 

Robin & Mike made the trek out to Jackson from St Louis for their beautiful destination wedding. They had the ceremony and reception at Lost Creek Ranch north of Jackson, and I don't know that I've ever seen a prettier site - they had such wonderful design and accessories from Vanessa over at Fleur de V, and of course the view can't be beat. Virginia at Vibrant Events made sure the trains were running on time and Robin & Mike were both so laid back and fun to work with; I just wish they were closer so I could photograph their upcoming new addition (CONGRATULATIONS!!!) as well.

Some favorites -

Leslee Anne working her hair and makeup magic (not that Robin needed any assistance - how gorgeous is she?)

Robin was so excited about the horses - she's allergic, but loves them, so this was a bit of a special (hopefully not too dangerous!) treat to get to hang out with some of the ranch's horses a little.

Dancing to one of Pete Muldoon's many band incarnations - this one has a trombone and they ROCKED THE HOUSE. If you haven't heard a trombone wailing on 'Folsom Prison Blues' you're missing out.

Fun fact - we hardly ever get to use sparklers in Jackson because a) fire danger and b) fireworks are illegal in Teton County. This summer we had nothing but rain and Virginia got permission to light it up at the reception, and I'm SO GLAD she did.
