Wedding traditions and styles are ever changing. And, so do wedding terms. As a Jackson Hole Wedding Photographer, we’re at the forefront of seeing these changes come to fruition.
Couples are eloping, having micro-weddings, or bringing down the house with a huge party. But what do the wedding terms mean in the aspect of wedding photography and Janelle & Co? And which wedding terms fits your celebration?
Let’s break it down.
What’s an elopement? Couples are choosing to elope more often than ever before because they just want to do the thing! Most times couples choose to keep it small and intimate. While the meaning behind an elopement was that ‘no one was in on the secret’, that’s not always the case any more. Some wedding couples will celebrate their nuptials with just the two of them, or a few people in attendance. Most couples book their elopement photographer and other vendors 1-6 months in advance, but occasionally they are planning an entire year ahead.
Our current 2023 package offerings begin at $2850 for Jackson Hole Elopement Photography. The “Simply Eloped” package allows for up to 10 guests at an elopement, and is available Monday – Thursday.
Our Jackson Hole Elopement Photography couples want to have a day of ease. They want to experience everything that nature has to offer as they share their vows in the great outdoors. And, they want to do it without the stress of planning a large wedding!
Micro-weddings were a huge trend in 2020-2022, and are going to continue to bring it this year. Micro-weddings are everything a huge wedding is without the large scale. Wedding couples tend to book similar vendors as they would with a larger guest list. They are still booking hair and makeup, venue or reception dinners, catering, flowers, destination wedding photography and videography, and other vendors. However, on this smaller scale they save some money on aspects of their day, but still get to celebrate with their closest friends and family. Jackson Hole micro-weddings bring it down a few notches while still getting all the traditions you want.
Our current 2023 package offerings begin at $4650 for Jackson Hole Micro-wedding Photography. The “Intimate Gathering” package allows for up to 30 guests at your celebration , and is available Monday – Friday. Upgraded Micro-wedding Packages are available any day of the week.

Big shindigs are still where the party is at. With all the crazy that goes on while wedding planning, your wedding day is the day to let loose and have fun. Couples are going all out on their wedding day with large bridal parties and destination events, because why the heck not! If you’ve always dreamed of a big wedding day, DO IT. These wedding parties are typically booking a DJ or Band, have more guests, and want to spend the night dancing and celebrating in their own ways. This type of wedding is perfect for the couple who wants it all!
Janelle & Co 2023 package offerings begin at $7550 for Jackson Hole Wedding Photography. The “Enchanting Hearts” package has no guest limit and is available any day of the week. Elopements, Micro-weddings, or Weddings wishing to book a weekend date have a minimum Enchanting Hearts package purchase requirement.
If you’re not sure what wedding style fits you yet, that’s ok. Just remember, it’s all about you and your person! Don’t let the fear of other people’s expectations keep you from getting your dream wedding – however that looks. We love all the weddings, small or large and can’t wait to celebrate your special day with you.
