Getting Ready Photos When Eloping

As a Jackson Hole wedding photographer I photograph a lot of elopements. Wedding days with just the bride and groom together, for the most intimate wedding in the mountains. Many times couples just want their ceremony photographed with a few bridal portraits afterwards. However, some of the most beautiful getting ready photos I have captured have been those that have been between just the bride and groom as they get ready for their elopement.

Although you are planning an intimate elopement, you still deserve to document your big day! Your wedding is a once in a life time moment, no matter how many guests you invite. You will still have that giddy excitement before your ceremony. The tender moments when you see your person for the first time in their wedding attire. And all the other little moments in between.

Bride & Groom Getting Ready Photos

Some couples opt to get ready together the morning of their Jackson Hole elopement. This is a beautiful opportunity for you to get some quiet quality time together. Helping your groom with his tie, or having your dress buttoned up by your fiance. By getting ready together you will be able to show your love by serving each other in simple tasks. These are some of my favorite nontraditional elopement day moments, as they enable a sense of tenderness and compassion.
