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. :)

Elise & Nick / Jackson Hole wedding photography

Elise and Nick got married at the end of June at the Kelly campus of the Teton Science School, where they met and both still are employed. I had such fun at this one - my favorite thing was how they absolutely couldn't look at each other without giggling and grinning at each other. It DID make 'serious face' hard, but I'll take authentic giggles and fun over serious photos any day. Some favorites -

I <3 this chimney. I made an animated gif but WordPress doesn't like it for some reason, so imagine them starting here:

Anne & Dominic / Jackson Hole elopement photography

   

 

 

Anne & Dominic made the trek to the US all the way from Holland, and what started out as a simple road trip vacation turned into a sweet summer elopement and honeymoon across the western United States.

When their friends heard they were coming over to the US and would be going through Las Vegas, they of course started teasing them about getting married while they were over here. That planted the seed, and they decided to get married here in Jackson Hole on their way through the parks. They didn't tell anyone, not even their parents, and surprised their friends and family with the news when they returned home.

With the help of Lisa at JH Events, Etc. they chose Mormon Row for their ceremony location and the Rev. Paul Hayden for their officiant. Gild the Lily Too provided the gorgeous bouquet and they picked up a lovely picnic lunch (which I got to share, yum!) from Pearl Street Meat & Fish. Anne got her hair & makeup done at the always wonderful Beleza Salon.

They wanted to make sure the Tetons figured large in the photos - I think we pulled it off here. :)

Jackie & Marc [Jackson Hole Wedding Photographer]

Jackie & Marc got married on a beautiful fall day at Schwabacher's Landing in Grand Teton National Park. They had made the trek out here from California with a few of their close friends and family with the thought of getting married in the mountains and also near the water - Schwabacher's fit the bill perfectly! After the ceremony they had a lovely lunch at Jenny Lake Lodge and took all of their guests out on a hike in Grand Teton Nat'l Park - how fun is that?

A few of my favorites -

sarah & eric - tetonia, ID wedding photographer

Last winter I got an email inquiring about a wedding date...nothing out of the ordinary. She mentioned that they were actors in Hollywood, but I didn't think much of it - there's TONS of actors in Hollywood, right? What are the chances these two were actually famous? Chances turned out to be pretty good. She has been in a ton of different movies and TV shows (Mad Men, anyone?) and his current gig is on NCIS LA. After I finished squealing and jumping up and down I promptly watched a bunch of the things they've been in, marveling that they somehow found me (thanks Gabe!!) and that I was going to get to photograph their wedding. Squeeeee!

Sarah and Eric are both so lovely and down to earth and fun to work with - we had an absolute blast at their wedding and were so honored to be a part of it all. On top of that, People Magazine, Brides.com and The Talk on CBS all ended up using my images - how cool is that?
