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.

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!! :)

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.

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.
