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.

Sami & Trevor // Grand Teton National Park wedding photographer

   

Sami & Trevor made the trek up to Jackson from Texas with a few of their closest friends to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony out at Mormon Row in Grand Teton National Park. We were postponed by weather, and then again by some bison at the ceremony site, but after a last minute relocation to the other side of the stream we were all systems go and I think everything turned out just beautifully.

Sami got Trevor a blindfold so he wouldn't see her until she was coming down the aisle, isn't that a cute idea?

Lindsay & Brooklyn / Ranch wedding in Dubois, WY

   

 

Lindsay & Brooklyn got married up in Dubois at the Absaroka Ranch, which just happens to be the ranch that Lindsay grew up on. Her father had the foresight to purchase the property thirty years ago and OMG am I jealous - they have the cutest little cabins, beautiful aspen groves and a meadow for the horses that goes on for miles.

They've known each other forever - they both grew up in Dubois and have literally always known each other. When they decided to get married there was pretty much no decision to be made on location, it was going to be the ranch.

The ceremony was held on top of a butte on the property. There was a lovely foot path, but the wedding party (and maybe a photographer or two) got a ride in the Rangers.

Anne & Dominic / Jackson Hole elopement photography

   

 

 

Anne & Dominic made the trek to the US all the way from Holland, and what started out as a simple road trip vacation turned into a sweet summer elopement and honeymoon across the western United States.

When their friends heard they were coming over to the US and would be going through Las Vegas, they of course started teasing them about getting married while they were over here. That planted the seed, and they decided to get married here in Jackson Hole on their way through the parks. They didn't tell anyone, not even their parents, and surprised their friends and family with the news when they returned home.

With the help of Lisa at JH Events, Etc. they chose Mormon Row for their ceremony location and the Rev. Paul Hayden for their officiant. Gild the Lily Too provided the gorgeous bouquet and they picked up a lovely picnic lunch (which I got to share, yum!) from Pearl Street Meat & Fish. Anne got her hair & makeup done at the always wonderful Beleza Salon.

They wanted to make sure the Tetons figured large in the photos - I think we pulled it off here. :)
