Sometimes working in the Jackson Hole area is a trial by fire.
For a photographer like me AND for the couples. What do I mean by that? This breathtaking landscape is wild and unpredictable. Especially in the winter, weather can change on a moment's notice, and like a box of chocolates, you just never quite know what you're going to get. I'm always so thankful when I get to work with amazing couples like Taylor and Lucas, who had flexibility during their week-long stay to move their engagement session back by a day or two in hopes of some sunshine. And we did get some for a minute!
Sometimes I'm jealous of photographers who work primarily in the South (or California), because they get such even and consistent sunshine. But, that's the perk of hiring a local photographer in the Jackson Hole area--I am used to some seriously crazy weather and can pivot on a dime to ensure that your photos are beautiful, warm, and exactly what you've been dreaming of, no matter what.
I met Taylor and Lucas on the downtown square by the elk antler arches, one of the most iconic locations in the area. After taking a few photos there, we drove up into Grand Teton National Park for the remainder of their session. I absolutely love it when a couple plans a casual outfit as well as a dressier one to really make the most of their photos--and I think we can all agree that they look completely stunning! Best of all, Taylor and Lucas were so kind, fun, and easy-going, that the session flew by and was a complete breeze. As breezy as the winter wind we experienced up in Grand Teton! Fortunately, these two were so amazing and in love that it's hard to even tell how cold they are!
Enjoy their beautiful engagement photos from this past February!
