Grand Teton National Park offers some of the most jaw dropping views! Which lends itself to some of the most epic photographs for your elopement. These are just 10 amazing Grand Teton National Park Elopement Shots. But there is so much to love about the area!
What I love about Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park for elopements is how close everything is, there are so many cute shops, restaurants, hikes, rivers, lakes, mountain views, and activities so conveniently located in one spot. This means the options for how you want your day to be are wide open! You can backpack into the backcountry for a full weekend adventure, or have a more relaxed experience with easily accessible locations. Many couples stay a week or longer to enjoy all the activities and really experience this national treasure! And the best part is that all the views offer stunning backdrops for your ceremony and photos.
Here are some of my favorite Grand Teton National Park Elopement shots that I have captured.
1. Backcountry Glacier Lake
This was a fall adventure elopement I had in the Tetons. And although every photo was jaw dropping, this one especially inspires a sense of wanderlust. I love how soft the lighting was, allowing for the colors of the water and trees to stand out, but not distract from the couple.

5. Airstream Life on the Road
As a Grand Teton elopement photographer I love adding as much of your personality as I can to your wedding photos. This bride and groom travelled across the country in their airstream to elope in the Grand Tetons. So we had to include their vehicle in a few photos! Whether it’s the old truck you had your first kiss in, or a camper you decided to travel the country together in. We can create epic photos and tell your story with it!
6. Sunset River Walk
This is one of those Grand Teton National Park elopement shots that I fall in love with every time I look at it. I had my couple walk through the shallow river bed as the sun set behind the mountains. This created a very soft glow over the landscape, defining the distance in the photo. And the intimate look between the bride and groom as they hold hands is just precious. See more of their epic elopement here!
7. Rainy Day Elopement
So often we try to avoid the rain on wedding days. But this photo may have you rethinking! A lot of the time the weather itself can lend to the “epicness” of your wedding day. There is just something wild and exciting about getting caught in the rain. Pair that with an elopement, and your photos will definitely reflect the adventure!

Another reason to love Grand Teton National Park are the many lakes that you will find scattered throughout the park. Adding a water feature gives more interest and depth to any photo. I especially love this wedding picture because of the many layers that exist with the mountains, tree line, lake, the couple and closer details. See more from this stunning wedding here!
