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.

Lindsey & Eric // Chico Hot Springs wedding photographer

   

Lindsey is a fabulous wedding planner here in Jackson (although recently relocated to Napa, boo!!!!) who wanted to have her wedding out of the valley - totally understandable, once you plan weddings in Jackson Hole for a living it makes sense to want something different for your own. She and her fiance Eric (Dino to friends and family) settled on Chico Hot Springs for its great food, relaxed ambiance and of course the beautiful Montana scenery.

Some of my favorites from their day -

How GORGEOUS is this dress? The details are amazing and Lindsey totally rocked it.

Such a cute card from Lindsey to Dino - I got to be the mail carrier. :)

I love that Lindsey had her girls in white, such a great idea!

Their dog Pinky totally stole the show.

The wedding site is up the hill a bit from the condo area and is aptly named The Field of Dreams. Beautiful!

Kristin & Tucker // Jackson Hole Hot Air Balloon Wedding

Kristin and Tucker got up at the crack of dawn to start the preparations for their wedding day. Actually, BEFORE the crack of dawn...I got to the house around 5 am and Kristin was already deep in the makeup chair, getting ready. Virginia over at Vibrant Events of Jackson Hole and Margaret at Elevated Ballooning pulled together a super fun dream team of vendors for the very first Elevated Weddings wedding - Persephone Bakery, The Silver Bungalow, Gild the Lily Too, Shayne Cosmetics, Hair & Makeup by Tanya, and Mountain Media all worked their butts off to make it all happen. I had a great time (even getting up at 4:30 in the morning!) and am so excited for this venture to take off (pardon the pun, ha!)

A few favorites -

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!!

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 -
