The Grand Tetons is a stunning National Park that always delivers! The majestic mountains, the wide open fields and the adventures that are around each corner really set it apart! I especially love having engagement sessions in the Tetons because of the adventurous nature of the landscape. This Grand Teton winter engagement session with Micheala and Josh was absolutely magical!
Finding Micheala & Josh
I had been wanting to get some fresh portfolio content in the Grand Tetons for a while. So, I decided to find a couple that would join me on a one day adventure to the winter wonderland of Jackson Hole, Wyoming! Occasionally I will put out a Facebook ad to find new couples who are wanting to work with a Jackson Hole photographer. Michaela responded to my Facebook ad, and I’m so glad she did! Her and Josh have become dear friends of mine and I can’t believe we just met a few days ago. Their Jackson Hole winter engagement session was so dreamy and romantic, plus we all had a ton of fun!
This fun couple joined me for lunch at Teton Thai Plate in Jackson, Wyoming. As we ate our delicious Pad Thai we got the opportunity to get to know each other before our Grand Teton winter engagement session. I got to know them as individuals as well as a couple. I learned about how they met, what they are doing now and when they are planning on getting married!
Something I love to do is meet before our session together! If time permits I prefer to meet with all my clients over a meal without the pressure of a camera between us. This allows me to really get to know you and how you interact. I like to see how you naturally interact with each other, this helps me think of posing ideas that will be more true to you and really tell a story through your images.
If a meeting can’t be arranged before our shoot I can simply accomplish this within a one hour session. With simple action prompts that allow you to move the way you naturally do helps avoid any stiff poses. I find moments to put my camera down to ask you about your story, how you met, what you love about each other. These things help spark creative thoughts so I can capture beautiful images that depict YOU.
That is what I deliver to all of my clients! Authentic images that reflect your genuine relationship. I don’t want to make a calm couple who connect through deep conversation run around, doing silly games to get them to smile. And vice versa, I would never have a fun energetic couple stand in pose with serious faces just to get an artistic shot. Because that wouldn’t be complementary to who they are! I want your photographs to reflect you and preserve your memories and emotion! Understanding you, your connection and background is something that makes all the difference in the experience that I deliver to you!
If you are planning to travel to the Tetons during the winter come prepared with warm layers, snow boots, hand warmers and something hot to drink. I actually have an entire blog dedicated to winter engagement session tips The snowy season makes for a magical place to snuggle up close with your favorite person! And you deserve to be comfortable while capturing your love!
A Grand Teton winter engagement session provides magical moments and wonderful memories! It really is the best adventure date you could have. And at the end of it, you get gorgeous photos to announce your engagement! Let’s connect and set up a time to chat and get out to the Grand Tetons!
