Do you ever meet someone and feel like you instantly click? Emma messaged me just the day after Jeremy proposed to see if I could squeeze them into my schedule. They were visiting Jackson Hole for the next few days and luckily I had room in my schedule! It’s always so nice to get messages from prospective clients who are effusive in their praise and desire to work with you. It really makes us remember why we do photography in the first place. The weather was perfect for us and the Tetons showed off in true fashion. Capturing Emma & Jeremy’s National Park Winter Engagements was the highlight of my week!
National Park Winter Engagements
If you’ve got the travel bug, choosing to do your engagement session in a national park is a great option! You’ll need to check what the rules are for the specific park you’re wanting to visit. In Grand Teton National Park, you only need a permit if you’re having a wedding ceremony inside the park. But taking photos inside is a non-issue if it’s for a personal session. I love how vast and open Grand Teton National Park is, and the views are just incredible. This particular location has become a quick favorite for winter sessions because it’s easy to get to, shows off the Tetons to perfection, and is pretty free from onlookers.
Preparing for your Winter Engagement Session
If you’re not sure what to wear for your national park winter engagements, I’ve got you covered! Some people are very used to the cold and can handle it better than others. Some people really need to layer up to stay warm and happy through their session. Regardless of either of those, the length of your session, and the weather outside will greatly affect what you should wear! Couples tend to be in three different groups when it comes to clothing choices. Single Layer clothing, Multi Layer clothing, Full Winter Getup.
