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!)

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 -

Eric was a little self conscious about his braces but we managed to get a big smile out of him at the end, yay. :)

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.

Nancy & Quinn / Four Seasons Jackson Hole wedding photographer

   

 

Nancy & Quinn tied the knot in a beautiful, intimate ceremony in Teton Village at the Four Seasons Jackson Hole at the beginning of May. We were just coming off of the spring off season, so they basically had the entire hotel to themselves. :) After their ceremony we headed up to Mormon Row to do a few portraits of the new husband and wife.
