So you’ve gotten engaged and now are planning a Jackson Hole Elopement! Congratulations! And also, WHEW there is a lot to do. Planning a destination wedding comes with it’s own hardships, but they are so worth it. Surrounding yourself with amazing professional wedding vendors will help your day go smoothly. So, where to start? Right here.
What amenities do we offer beyond our Wedding Photographer services? At Janelle & Co, we pride ourselves on being knowledgeable about the Jackson Hole area and the best vendors it has to offer. We help our clients with location selection, timeline creation, and beyond. Let’s dig in and you’ll see how hiring the right photographer gives you access to so much more.
Choosing destination wedding vendors is a big task. But don’t worry, we’ve totally got your back. I get asked on every call for vendor recommendations. We share our list of highly trusted vendors to help your day be complete. From wedding planners, officiants, florists, and beauty specialists, to cake designers, caterers, DJs, and any other Jackson Hole Elopement vendors help you need.
Our top recommendations are already included on our How To Plan Your Grand Teton National Park Elopement, but additional recommendations are also provided as needed. While we aren’t a full wedding planning and coordinating service, these recommendations will help your planning process easier!
Maybe you’ve never been to the Tetons before, or didn’t get to explore it to the fullest. Good news! I know all the prettiest locations, which ones are the most secluded, and which ones are available for ceremony permits. I include photographs into my location guide, along with names so that you can know exactly which locations we’re discussing! While lighting and weather can affect how each of these locations look, you really can’t go wrong in the Tetons.
Want water and mountain views? I’ve got a few locations in my back pocket! Prefer a more intimate ceremony without other park goers looking on? We know the places with the least traffic. Don’t care about the other people, just want to most epic views that are easily accessible? We know those too! Thinking about making it an adventurous day and hiking up to a secluded spot in Bridger-Teton National Forest? You can count on us to help choose the best hike for your fitness level.
This is one of my favorite aspects of our initial consultation! The amount of hours you choose will depend a lot on what kind of documentation you want. Things to consider when creating a custom timeline are: Getting Ready Photos, Boudoir Session, First Looks, Ceremony, Couple Portraits and how many locations you want to visit, First Dance, Dinner, Toasts, or other Reception Coverage. A couple wanting a more intimate elopement typically plans on 2-6 hours of coverage. A larger wedding with guests, or more coverage typically book 6-8 hours of wedding photography coverage.
Using your top location choices, I’ll create several custom timelines for you to look at. If you’re working to fit into a specific package budget, we’ll create multiple options within those guides and show you what is possible! These sample timelines include information like when sunset is, how close location choices are, and the time we’ll use to take photos at any given location.
We know there are challenges that come with planning a Jackson Hole Elopement when you aren’t local to the area. Having great wedding vendor recommendations, help with location selection, and custom timeline planning will help it feel more manageable. We promise to help along the way to make your wedding day special and memorable! So contact us about photographing your beautiful wedding day, and we’ll bring all these helps to the table!
