Welcome to the blog!

Holy cow, it's a new blog post!

Sooo...this here represents an effort on my part to turn over a new blog related leaf. I want to share all these amazing weddings with you but have been absolutely terrible about blogging. So terrible that I think it's been two years? TWO YEARS. That's half of my youngest kid. Dang.

So in an attempt to remedy that, I'm adding blogging to my workflow for all of my weddings this spring and summer and I'm going to put it on the schedule for Fridays and actually DO IT. My extremely belated 2016 resolution. 

And since we can't have a blog post without any photos....here's a little of what I've been up to lately.


Here's to getting stuff done this year, hallelujah!! 


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.

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.

Thank you all for such a fun session and I hope to see you again on your next trip out west!!


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 -

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