Mountain Weddings

As many of you know building a web site is an enormous undertaking.  One of the wonderful things is going through all of your work to find imagery that you think best represents the work you do.  After much thought I decided to create portfolios of weddings based on regions that depict the passion that I have for shooting those particular kinds of weddings. 

For the Mountain Wedding section I chose a wedding that I photographed in Jackson Hole, Wy and one in Livingston, Montana.  I love capturing the sense of place when shooting a wedding for my clients.  using the natural landscape to create portraits that capture the grand landscape in these two beautiful places is part of my job that brings me great joy.  People choose to get married in places that have great meaning for them and creating images that capture the landscape gives them a way to relate back to that day and really feel what it was like to be there on one of the most important days of their lives. 

The couple in Jackson Hole had their ceremony in a tiny church in Grand Teton National Park and then had the reception at a lodge where they incorporated elements that were western and elegant at the same time.  Take a peak to see some of the great details they incorporated into their wedding.

The wedding in Paradise Valley in Livingston, MT was of a dear friend of mine who decided to get married spur of the moment and had one of the most inclusive and celebratory weddings that I have ever attended.  unfortunately you can't hear some of the toasts that were given that were heartwarming and hysterical at the same time.  You can however see the joy in the faces of the bride, groom and their two children.  The series of photos of them hugging each other while listening to the band play music are some of my all time photographs that capture the relationships between people that are fleeting but get to the core of the love that they share.....

Over the next few days I am going to write about each of the wedding featured in the various regions on my site, so please take a few minutes and enjoy them....
