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.

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.

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!!

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:

...then walking towards each other and ending here:

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).
