Nicole had recently moved to New Hampshire for a fresh start and began working as a bartender in one of the local bars near the coast. One day she met a nice couple who struck up a long conversation with her. They insisted that Nicole needed to meet their son and promised that they would send him her way as soon as he joined them that evening. When he arrived the matchmaking began. Russ’s parents introduced him to Nicole and encouraged him to ask her out. Once Russ got to know Nicole a bit he didn’t need anymore nudging, he knew he needed to get to know her more. Russ approached the bar and asked her out, when she tried to politely turn him down Russ got the entire bar to urge her to say yes. Nicole was so happy that she caved and went on that date because the two have been inseparable ever since.Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |When they decided to tie the knot and began planning a wedding they quickly decided a big ceremony and celebration just wasn’t them. They didn’t love the attention and really wanted their wedding day to be small and intimate. They began searching the web for ideas on how to elope and stumbled across a blog post I had written about eloping in the Grand Teton National Park. Both Nicole and Russ had never been to Wyoming or the western united states for that matter but the gorgeous Teton mountain range looked like the most amazing backdrop! They contacted me for more details and it didn’t take long for them to decide that the Grand Teton National Park was the place they wanted to be married.Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |It was so fun for me to help them plan their whole trip to Jackson and the details of their wedding day. Russ and Nicole chose to spend the whole morning together since they didn’t have any family or friends that joined them. So we met up that day at 4:00pm in their hotel parking lot. After I helped Nicole with a quick alteration on her gown we were on the road to explore the park and get some amazing photos before their ceremony.Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Their ceremony was intimate and so full of love as they shared the vows that they had written the night before in their hotel room. It was sweet to hear Russ had to write his final vows on an envelope because he had run out of paper. You could tell the immense care and devotion they have for each other.Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Then sealed with a kiss they were married! Thomas Jordan, a retired judge from Jackson Hole performed their ceremony on the banks of the Snake River. They found a few hikers on the trail to act as their witnesses and that added to the spontaneity and beauty of Russ and Nicole’s wedding day.Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Jocilyn Bennett Photography | Bridal Pose Ideas | Destination Wedding Photographer | Elopement Wedding Photographer | National Park Elopement Photography | Capturing raw and genuine emotion | Idaho photographer | Idaho wedding photographer | National Park Weddings | Mountain elopement | Adventure Photographer | Movement photography | Teton formal session | Teton photography | Idaho Bride | Adventure wedding | Small intimate wedding ceremony |Russ and Nicole had each other’s names along with their wedding date engraved on their wedding bands.

Jocilyn was brilliant to work with! We picked Jackson Hole on a map and decided to get eloped there without ever actually visiting. She helped me with all planning essentials from picking vendors and a location to actually sewing me into my dress that needed more alterations right before heading out to our wedding. It was just the two of us celebrating our nuptials and we immediately felt so comfortable with her. For two people who hate having their photos taken we had a blast for the 4 plus hours we spent with her. She is someone who truly loves her craft and it shows in her amazing work!”
