Every now and then I do a shoot that I just completely connect with. It usually happens when my clients allow me the creative freedom to design a session for them. I had photographed Darrell and Jessica a few years back when they were on vacation in Jackson Hole. Jessica, being a budding photographer herself, and I connected and we had a blast at their first shoot. Fast forward to 2015 and the couple was coming back to Jackson for a vacation and photography workshop. I did a studio portrait session with Jessica and then we did a couples shoot with the two of them. Jessica called me in a bit of a panic before they flew to Jackson claiming that “she had nothing to wear and perhaps we should just cancel.” I absolutely LOVE it when people tell me they don’t have anything to wear. I told her to just turn up for her shoot and I would take it from there.

It was wild and windy on the scheduled shoot day…absolutely perfect and my favorite kind of weather for photos! I meet them at a cool old historical site in Grand Teton National Park called Cunningham Cabins fully equipped with a huge suite case with half of my closet…Leather jackets, wild rags and vintage wool blankets. We froze our butts off and had to keep getting back in the car every few min. to warm up but it was well worth it.

Looking back over my portrait shoots from last year (2015) I can absolutely say that this was my favorite shoot. These images make me say “I wish I had that picture of myself and my darling husband.”

I love other people’s love stories. It’s one of my favorite things about photographing a wedding. Every wedding has a love story behind it. I know it sounds kind of cliche but it’s really true. Once you work with me and get to know my style you’ll know that my favorite part of the day is getting to photograph the couple alone in the setting that they have chosen and created. I think I love this so much because it embodies and reflects who they are as individuals and as a couple. It tells their love story in images rather then words.

The images below are from just a few of the weddings I shot over the last year in Bozeman and Jackson Hole.
