Jackson Hole Photographers Timeline

Every elopement day has a totally different timeline. Some couples just want to meet up for a quick ceremony and photos, while other are excited to document the entire day. I definitely recommend the latter, even for an elopement! Although you are eloping, you will still have so many sweet moments leading up to and after your ceremony. You deserve to have those moment documented to cherish for a life time! As a Jackson Hole wedding photographer I want to share with you an example of what your Jackson Hole photographers timeline may look like!

Dana & Justin

Before we hop into the timeline of their wedding day, I have to share a little bit about Justin and Dana. These two may just have the cutest love story I have ever heard! They met in junior high and connected over music. They both enjoyed rock music, unlike their peers who leaned towards hip hop. With this similar interest they connected quickly and began to exchange CDs and burn mixes for each other. They remained as close friends until they began dating at the end of high school.

For their tenth anniversary Justin and Dana decided to take a trip to a quiet, sleepy beach town. They live in Florida, so this was a quick trip close to home. When Justin proposed Dana was so excited, but also shocked that he proposed with her dream ring! She had been pointing out this ring for years at this point. So that fact that he was able to get his hands on meant the world to Dana!

Jackson Hole Photographers Timeline

Before your elopement I will send you a questionnaire to help me get to know you. As well as having a phone call together to discuss how I can best serve you and create your Jackson Hole elopement photographers timeline. As a Jackson Hole wedding photographer I serve you by putting together your timeline, giving any advice or ideas that may make your wedding day even more special.

Through their questionnaire and our phone call I got to know some personal details about Dana’s family, and we were able to brainstorm some ways to honor her loved ones who wouldn’t be able to make it. By taking the time to share their lives with me through a questionnaire, I was able to better connect with this couple. Making it so natural to love and serve them genuinely!

The Morning Of The Jackson Hole Elopement

I started the day by doing some flatlay photos for Dana and Justin. I love these photos as they are such a beautiful was to commemorate the day! Taking a few meaningful details and laying them together in a beautiful design gives a snapshot of your wedding day style. In addition, one of Dana’s requests was to get a few photos of her engagement ring, so I was sure to include those in her flatlays!

I also threw together a quick DIY wedding bouquet for Dana. There have been some floral shortages since Covid, making the price of bouquets quite high! And since I have made bouquets for multiple brides before this, I felt confident in arranging flowers from the grocery store. And they turned out beautifully!

First Look

After some meaningful getting ready photos with Dana and her mom, we headed out to get Justin and Dana’s first look. This was part of the day that they were both super excited about, so I had to make it special for them! We picked a beautiful spot off the side of the road and hikes up into the trees. The winds were super high, about 30 mph. Although the winds were high, they just added to the session. Creating a dramatic feel, as well as some cool blurry images.

After their first look, I took Dana and Justin to String Lake for some bridal photos. Which turned out beautifully! Then it was time for the best part of the day, their ceremony. We chose to have the ceremony at Schwabacher Landing. Dana’s parents met us there and her dad walked her down the natural aisle. It was filled with wonderful moments that I feel honored to have been able to capture.

After their ceremony I stuck around to capture some more meaningful moments of celebration, as well to get a few detail shots of Justin’s wedding attire. He is a welder by profession, so he wore a bolo tie with a welding helmet on it. In addition he had went for an all black look with silver collar tips for a Johnny Cash inspired wedding look!
