Taylor & Brad’s Snowy Sun Valley Wedding

Taylor and Brad had their hearts set on a winter wonderland wedding, but there has not been a whole lot of snow this winter. As their big day approached, it looked like that was not going to change, so the couple was all set to make the most of it, and began to celebrate with their friends and family as they arrived to enjoyed all that Sun Valley has to offer, with or without snow.

The weekend started with a rehearsal dinner at the Town Square Tavern, and a welcome party at Whiskey Jacques the next night. On Saturday morning, the girls gathered in a room at the Sun Valley Lodge to drink champagne, hang out and get ready together. The guys, always quick to get ready, met at Grumpy’sfor a pre-wedding schooner.

And then around midday, a few hours before the ceremony, the snow began to fall, coating the valley with a pretty white coat of snow. It continued to fall right through their ceremony, which could not have been more sweet as they stood under the verandah at the The Valley Club, with snow flakes swirling around them, their guests wrapped in the blankets.

Marie, the mother of the bride, with the help of Amanda Seaward (wedding planner extraordinaire), put together the most classic, cozy, and fun Sun Valley wedding! With so many fun personal little touches and the most enthusiastic group of friends and family, they really pulled off a wonderful event.

Thanks to everyone who made tit all come together– Amanda Seaward of Absolute Weddings, Tara Ooms of Tara Bella Flowers, Kathleen Weber of Embrey Press , who is responsible for the beautiful invitation and the rest of the paper suite, Tomiko & Brianna from Santa Barbara who did the hair and makeup as well as Britt Davis of Britt Davis Beauty, Sarah Lipton of Hank & Sylvie’s, who did the cake, DJ Nate, Jay who did the lighting, Two Birds Studio who did the video and of course my second shooter Christina Carlson. It’s been fun starting out the 2018 wedding season with you!




Megan + Brian get Hitched at the Valley Club!

_DSC5044It was such a pleasure to photograph Megan and Brian’s wedding on Saturday at the Valley Club! Megan’s parents have had a condo here since she was a kid and she grew up with Sun Valley as her second home. Now a dentist in Seattle, she and Brian (who owns a tech company there), were excited to host a great weekend getaway for their family and friends, who seem like they all had a blast. It was fun getting to be a part of such a fun celebration. Here is a little peek of images from the big day. Thanks to all the vendors who made it a great event– my awesome second photographer Adelaide Mason, the staff at the Valley Club, Sue Bridgman Flowers, DJ Rory and Cristiana’s. More images to come soon!


Rachael and Garrett get married!

_DSC5416At some weddings, everyone feels like family. That was Rachael and Garrett’s wedding on Saturday. Married at Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church in Ketchum, with a reception at the Valley Club, the couple had the sweetest celebration, surrounded by people who obviously love them. I really enjoyed being a part of it, as well as working with everyone who put the event together, including my second photographer Adelaide Mason, Amanda Seaward of Absolute Weddings, Tara Bella Flowers, DJ Nathan Hudson and the staff at The Valley Club and Third Floor Salon.
