As a Jackson Hole elopement photographer, I have been fortunate enough to work with so many people from all over the country. My couples connect with the Tetons, and the beauty within Jackson Hole and have to elope there! Between traveling and planning, choosing vendors gets to be so overwhelming. But, I’ve got you covered. Planning your Jackson Hole elopement and not sure whether to book local vendors or not? Let me give you a few reasons why hiring local vendors for your Jackson Hole elopement is a must.
Whenever a client inquires with me about a Jackson Hole elopement, immediately there is a happy dance, but also we get right on the phone. I love connecting with clients and making sure they feel supported and valued. 9 out of 10 times when we get on the phone, my couples start asking for recommendations for other incredible local vendors to add to their all star team. This is one of my favorite things to help with! I love being able to help gather a strong team to support you and bring your dreams to life, but also make your life so much easier.
It can be challenging finding vendors you connect with, and also admire their work. Once you book one vendor you love in the area, see if they have recommendations! Not only will this narrow your search, but if you already connect with one vendor, odds are they probably have suggestions for like-minded people. Booking local vendors for your Jackson Hole elopement just got that much easier!
As a local, Jackson Hole elopement photographer, I’ve spent my fair share of time around the town and in the mountains. I’ve been there all seasons of the year, and various times of the day. I’ve spent so much time exploring Grand Teton National Park with my husband and son, and love being there. Throughout our adventures I have grown a greater appreciation for the beauty of the area, and love finding beauty in the most random spots. I’ve got lots of fun, ‘secret spots’ that I like to take my couples to during their sessions.
Whether you’re looking for a specific time of day, a certain vibe for your session, or even just want to hand me the reins, we’ll take care of you. It’s important for a photographer to be able to adapt if things go off course, or if timing doesn’t work out. If your photographer isn’t familiar with the area they may not know where to go when the sun starts to set, or if it begins to rain, or if there are too many people in one heavily populated spot. However, having a Jackson Hole elopement photographer with you, (like me!) we know what to prepare for and what to expect on your big day.
Since I’ve done this a few times, I can also help plan and craft your timelines. Having the knowledge, to perfectly capture that beautiful golden hour lighting or getting the best spots before time runs out, and it gets busy.
Throughout your planning and research, you’ll quickly find out, local vendors for your Jackson Hole elopement are going to save you money, because, we’re already here! Most photographers that aren’t local to the area are going to charge for travel to your elopement on top of your wedding package. Not only are you going to be spending your whole budget getting them there, you’ll be back to the reason why you chose an elopement in the first place. It was supposed to be cheaper!
Having a local photographer on your team for your big day is crucial to your success. Just worry about getting your cute selves here and I’ll help with the rest!
