Adam & Jodie // Jackson Hole proposal photographer

   

 

Last summer I got an email from Adam with a unique idea - he wanted to propose to his wife of 20 years. Err...what? Turns out they were super young when they first got married and couldn't afford an engagement ring. It wasn't anything Jodie asked for, but he thought it would be the best anniversary present he could give her. We met up at Mormon Row on the pretense of doing a regular portrait shoot as their anniversary present and about halfway through he got down on one knee.

Aren't they cute? I love this shot.

Jodie was absolutely stunned. Who expects an engagement ring when you're already married? Huge props to Adam for thinking of it and making it happen!

The only issue was Jodie couldn't stop laughing and crying after he proposed. It's a good problem to have.

Molly & Brian / Linn Canyon Ranch wedding photographer

   

 

Molly & Brian got married in July (YES, JULY. That's how behind I am on my blogging. I feel shame) over the hill in beautiful Victor, ID at the Linn Canyon Ranch. It rained right up until the moment Molly set foot on the ranch and then the skies cleared and it was a gorgeous afternoon.

A few favorites -

For some reason I really like that they have a horse locator board.

Some of you may remember a similar dress shot from Liz & Kyle's wedding a few years ago...I just love those antlers.

Brian got strapped glass buckles from Made for all his dudes. I covet them greatly.

Bare feet = easier than wedges on slippery grass.

Julie & Sam / Jackson Hole wedding photographer

   

Julie & Sam got married a few weeks ago during one of the biggest thunderstorms I can remember. It started sprinkling as the wedding party walked down the aisle, and then relented just long enough for their lovely ceremony before returning with a vengeance. We took it as the good luck sign that it is and had a fantastic time surrounded by their loving family and friends at Julie's childhood home here in Jackson.

My favorite thing about these two was that they were unutterably goofy and laughed all the time. It was so fun to watch and be around.

Megan & Brad / Jackson Hole engagement photography

   

 

 

 

 

 

Last week I headed up north with Megan and Brad and their two fur-babies Rodeo & Dutch to do their engagement photos. Luckily for us the road to Mormon Row has just opened up and we were able to drive right in...the trees are still a little bare and the ground is a bit muddy, but the views can't be beat. :)

Aren't they so cute? Brad works offshore in Alaska and is about to head out for his six weeks 'on' after spending most of the winter in Jackson.

When I first told Brad to give me his serious face, he went full Marine on me and it was terrifying. So we went modified serious for this one.

I got some nice shots of Dutch with the most disgusting bone ever (it included a hoof), but thought that those were best left off the blog. :)
