Welcome to the blog!

Kendra & Kyle // Linn Canyon Ranch

Kendra & Kyle were married in early June over at the Linn Canyon Ranch in Victor, Idaho. I love shooting over there since the golden hour lasts foreeeeeeeever (it's on the other side of the Tetons which = really long sunsets). They had an intimate affair with just close family and friends followed by a cocktail hour on the lawn and a lovely dinner. 

Some favorites - 

Congratulations you two!!! xoxo

Sarah & Eric / Jackson Hole Elopement Photographer

Sarah and Eric came out to Jackson Hole from Missouri to have a sweet backyard elopement at their officiant's house in the town of Jackson. After a short and sweet ceremony we did some photos around the area (helloooo Flat Creek, pretty!!) and then headed up north to get the Tetons in a few images. Some favorites -

Eric was a little self conscious about his braces but we managed to get a big smile out of him at the end, yay. :)

Shannon & Thomas / Grand Teton National Park backcountry wedding

Shannon & Thomas came out to Jackson to elope in Grand Teton National Park with some of their closest friends. When Shannon asked if I'd shoot in the park, of course I said yes right away, I shoot in the park all the time! When she asked about hiking up Cascade Canyon a ways, I said sure, why not...not really thinking about the gear I'd have to carry or asking how far 'a ways' might be. :) We ended up hiking about 2.5 miles up and in (and up...and up....) to a gorgeous little lake that I never got the name of. Everyone brought along their wedding clothes and changed once we got there - Shannon brought a full on wedding dress all the way in!

A few of my favorites -

The ferry at Jenny Lake.

Robin & Mike / Jackson Hole wedding photographer

   

 

Robin & Mike made the trek out to Jackson from St Louis for their beautiful destination wedding. They had the ceremony and reception at Lost Creek Ranch north of Jackson, and I don't know that I've ever seen a prettier site - they had such wonderful design and accessories from Vanessa over at Fleur de V, and of course the view can't be beat. Virginia at Vibrant Events made sure the trains were running on time and Robin & Mike were both so laid back and fun to work with; I just wish they were closer so I could photograph their upcoming new addition (CONGRATULATIONS!!!) as well.

Some favorites -

Leslee Anne working her hair and makeup magic (not that Robin needed any assistance - how gorgeous is she?)

Why yes, she DID ride in on a horse drawn wagon. How cool is that?

Robin was so excited about the horses - she's allergic, but loves them, so this was a bit of a special (hopefully not too dangerous!) treat to get to hang out with some of the ranch's horses a little.

Dancing to one of Pete Muldoon's many band incarnations - this one has a trombone and they ROCKED THE HOUSE. If you haven't heard a trombone wailing on 'Folsom Prison Blues' you're missing out.

Fun fact - we hardly ever get to use sparklers in Jackson because a) fire danger and b) fireworks are illegal in Teton County. This summer we had nothing but rain and Virginia got permission to light it up at the reception, and I'm SO GLAD she did.

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.
