Grand Tetons Engagement : D + G



We first connected with Greg over facebook as he was planning his wedding. He and Deena didn’t have everything nailed down, but one thing Greg told us he was certain of, was that they would be using us for their wedding photos (lol). As we’ve probably said hundreds of times before we’re are still completely humbled and grateful just to get to do what we love for a living. Sometimes we still have to pinch ourselves. So when people say stuff like that and they don’t even have a venue yet, we’re always blown away! After Greg and Deena locked down a venue in western North Carolina, we were able to connect over the phone, and of course one of the details we discussed was scheduling their engagement session. We picked a location more local to them at first and everything was all set. Shortly after sharing a few shots from Jesse and Megan’s vow renewal in the Grand Tetons, Greg asked if we would shoot their engagement photos in Jackson Hole. It turns out they already had an epic trip planned to come out west and see the Grand Teton National Park, as well as Yellowstone. Of course we were pumped about it! Within a few weeks, Greg and Deena made their way out to our neck of the woods.


To be honest one of our favorite parts of their trip besides exploring and planning, was just getting to hang with Greg and Deena! We hit up Liberty Burger (one of our favorites spots!) for some amazing comfort food and I think the only thing we partook in more than calories was laughs. It was an awesome night and much needed getaway from our usual hustle and bustle. Of course we had spent most of the day prior planning out all the potential spots we could hit for their engagement session to make sure we could get the absolute best photos. True to their laid back style, they said, “We trust you guys, just do your thing.” Which is basically the ultimate for photographers (thanks guys!). Looking back on their engagement session in the Grand Tetons, we were almost overwhelmed with all of the beautiful captures from their session. The setting never gets old and is breathtaking in every sense of the way! These two totally put their love on display for the world! Contrary to our usual approach for a blog, we decided to just post our favorite images from their engagement but not in any particular order. The beauty and diversity of the surroundings almost begs to be shared in complete randomness. I.e. we want to overwhelm you with awesomeness too! Enjoy ya’ll!
