Glacier View Turnout Engagement

    Now that we’re finally starting to thaw out from winter (just kidding) it’s time to catch up a bit more on all things blog!  One of our favorite sessions from this winter that we wanted to share with you was Alex and Kelly’s engagement session in downtown Jackson and at the always popular Glacier View Turnout.  Truth be told, we had a feeling we were going to be kindred spirits with these cuties from the initial email we received from Kelly.  She submitted it twice on the chance that the first one didn’t go through because she couldn’t quite tell on her end.  I laughed out loud when I read it because this is so us (lol) and we’ve done the same thing when reaching out to people or businesses.  Call me cynical but life has taught me, if something can be lost in the vast world of email land and other electronic transmissions, it will be.  Kelly if you’re reading this, first bump!

After telling us a bit more about her and Alex’s vision for their engagement, we were pumped and hopeful to meet these two!  Kelly expressed that her and Alex loved the light at sunrise and sunset and were torn between doing their session at one time vs the other.  We ended up deciding the best plan would be to do a little bit of both!  I can’t tell you how much we appreciate these two being troopers on the day of their engagement session.  For those of you reading this that have never visited Jackson Hole in the winter, it can be frigid to say the least.  Sometimes it’s hard enough just walking from your car down the street to your favorite coffee shop, let alone dressing cute and doing engagement photos in sub-zero temps.  You heard that right, these two toughed out an exceptionally cold morning where the thermometer was reading negative 3 when we started!  As you can imagine we had to glove up and bundle up a few times to give ourselves a breather from the cold, but Kelly and Alex never complained once.  Pro tip, if you’re ever looking to do a downtown engagement session in Jackson, sunrise is the way to go to avoid all of the heavy traffic and foot traffic.  We essentially had the place to ourselves and these lovelys absolutely rocked it!  Part 2 found us this beautiful engagement session had us venture out to the Grand Tetons National Park to one of our favorite locations, Glacier View Turnout.  We especially love this spot in the winter because it’s usually pretty hard packed throughout the season.  Did we also mention the epic view of the Grand Tetons!?  Kelly and Alex picked up right where they left off that morning and we had a blast playing in the snow with these two!  As always, we hope you all enjoy following along, and big congrats to Kelly and Alex!
