I always feel so lucky when I get the chance to head back to Jackson Hole to photograph a wedding. Living there for four years gave me such a strong connection to those mountains and that place. In June I took my first trip away from baby Banks and photographed Nick and Stephanie’s Turpin Meadow Ranch wedding. These two are locals to the area and had so many details for their wedding that were personalized to them. From the cairns to mark the way of their first walk as husband and wife to Stephanie’s wildflower bouquet, they took all of their favorite aspects of living in the Tetons and incorporated them into their special day. Nick even hand-dyed ties for all of his groomsmen. This couple loves the river so Turpin Meadow Ranch was the perfect setting – a beautiful field, river running through, cabins for friends and family to stay, and of course stunning views of the beautiful Tetons. The feel of their day is everything I love about mountain weddings – a sense of community and a strong love for nature and everything this world has to offer. I can’t think of a more perfect day for Nick and Stephanie and was honored to be a part of their wedding.
