Welcome to the blog!

Bayer Family // Jackson Hole family photographer

   

Terran, Greg & Roxy passed through Jackson on their fall vacation road trip through the national parks and contacted me for a family session on their way through. We had a great time even though it didn't occur to me that OF COURSE Mormon Row was going to be full of scenery and wildlife shooters at 8 am on a sunny morning. Whoops! We headed up towards Shadow Mountain and got this amazing fog with the sun coming through, how cool is that?

Being the child of a  photographer (check out Terran's work here - she's amazing!!!) Roxy was fantastically well behaved and Terran had tons of great advice on getting dogs to pay attention (Treats. The answer is treats) when you're trying to get them to pose for you.

Some favorites (pls disregard the weird watermark - black text doesn't work so well. I was experimenting as I was waiting for my new site to go live) -

I just love the colors and the light in these, and how fabulous is Terran's coat? Majorly jealous.

We managed to make it back over to the barns after most of the scenery photographers had finished up for the morning. Good mountains that day!! :)

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).

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!!

Kala & Aron - Winter Wedding in Jackson Hole

   

Kala and Aron came over to Jackson from Casper for their lovely intimate winter wedding - they had been planning to get married in Casper, but it started to get huge and not at all what they wanted so they chucked their plans out the window and decided to bring a few of their closest friends and family to Jackson for a small ceremony and a few days of snowboarding.  Kala had heard of me from Becky & Brandon, whose engagement session I shot in Deadwood/Spearfish SD and STILL haven't blogged because I am a terrible blogger and so behind on 2012 stuff. SOON! There will be more blogging soon.

In the meantime, here are a few of my favorites from Kala & Aron's wedding....

Love this shot of Kala helping her mom with her makeup.

Pretty sure the Lodge at JH has the best window light EVAR. Look how gorgeous these came out (and having a stunning bride certainly doesn't hurt).
