As a Jackson Hole wedding photographer I get to capture so many beautiful moments. From elopements to venue weddings, I truly love them all! But this private vow reading in Grand Teton National Park will always be such a sentimental shoot that I will never forget. Tayler and Austin came all the way from Georgia to capture their love in the Tetons, and I am so honored I got to document it all!
Stress Free Elopement
Tayler and Austin really wanted to keep their elopement simple! I love when couples opt for a low maintenance wedding, because it keep their focus on one another. Instead of worrying about all the vendors and small details of their wedding day, they get to just embrace each other and all the feelings of the day!
To have a completely stress free elopement Tayler and Austin chose to get married at a courthouse in Georgia. Then they came out for a formal and private celebration in the Tetons. They didn’t have to worry about an officiant or any of the paper work during their celebration, making their vow reading in Grand Teton National Park that much more enjoyable!
Private Vow Reading In Grand Teton National Park
We chose to have Tayler and Austin’s private vow reading at Schwabacher Landing. Both said that they felt uncomfortable in front of the camera, so we decided to first capture some wedding portraits. I didn’t want to jump right into their vow reading without them feeling comfortable and natural! So, I let them get to know my camera with a few prompts to encourage candid poses.
Once the ice was broken and the jitters were gone we went into their vow reading. It was an absolutely romantic and sentimental moment between Tayler and Austin. As they read their vows to each other they held onto one another. Cuddling as they read their vows was very sweet. In addition, it brought the attention to their love for one another, instead of just an individual.
“Alright folks, if you are getting married or eloping in Jackson Hole you have to choose Jocilyn! She not only was a wonderful photographer (the pictures came out amazing), but she also made the experience one of the best aspects of our trip. She really takes the time to get to know you and your significant other which really makes taking pictures much easier, especially if you are like me and aren’t the best model in the world! She was responsive to all of our calls and texts and even reached out unprompted to help make sure things were set up and that we knew what we wanted!”
Capturing Tayler and Austin’s private vow reading in Grand Teton National Park was such a pleasure! And I am so grateful that I was able to contribute to their experience in the Grand Tetons. Reach out and let’s plan your Grand Teton and Jackson Hole wedding!
