Adam and his wife didn't have a lot of money when they got married and were really fortunate to have some good photographers work within their budget to capture everything. Adam thinks that is what really helped to craft his belief that weddings of all sizes and budgets are unique events that are worth retelling - especially through the means of good photography. He believes weddings really symbolize the coming together of not only two individuals, but the people that supported them along the way. His joy as a photographer comes from capturing all the unique moments of that great commemorative event that is your wedding, from the well rehearsed to the completely candid interactions that happen throughout the day. Many of Adam's brides (and grooms) have benefited from his effort to naturally participate in their weddings, and his goal as a photographer is to contribute to your wedding day and help it run as smoothly as possible.

Did you know? Adam is in his mid-late 20's and already has 2 kids! He is also a graphic designer and a total nerd when it comes to finely printed design.

Moose Head Ranch is unique. Unlike other guest ranches Moose Head Ranch is privately owned, family operated and completely surrounded by Grand Teton National Park, providing guests with a panoramic vista of the Teton Range. Imagine riding with your family and seeing elk, bison, mule deer and antelope up close. Picture meadows of alpine flowers such as lupine and fireweed as you gaze down at the legendary Snake River. At the end of each ride relax on your cabin porch or the Lodge deck with the ever changing vista of the majestic Tetons in the distance, with no blaring horns or city noises, just the sound of the babbling brook and the laughter of your children as they play with new found friends. Point out the Milky Way and track the numerous shooting stars seen crossing the evening sky. Bond with your children without the interfering sports schedules, meetings and social activities that crowd your family life back home. When was the last time you played cards or checkers with your kids? All of that and more is there for you at the ranch.

Did you know? Moose Head has a breath-taking wedding and special event site available during our off season (Prior to 6/5 and after 8/13). The owners hope you will consider them for your event and they will do all they can to make it memorable!

Hannah Hardaway’s portrait and wedding photography is clean and refreshing. Her honest approach to bringing out the joy in life and in people reflects her background in narrative, documentary storytelling. Having traveled extensively in the world, both as a professional skier and as a lover of life and adventure, Hannah thrives in just about any environment with ease and magnetism. She lives by a cup-half-full way of being, and naturally sees the light in people and brings out the natural beauty and magic in everything – from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Her photography is both romantic and vibrant, while humble and natural.

“For me it’s about the little moments, the in-between spaces that tell the story. It’s the emotions of the day, the people who share in it, the relationships, and the details that make the character of each wedding unique and special. As the day unfolds, I capture the beauty of it all with minimal directing and instead focus on highlighting and enhancing the celebration.  My objective is to put people at ease in front of the camera and make the photography of the event a fun part of the whole experience,” says Hannah.

Reception Location-  Trail Creek Ranch

Reception SiteMark Fisher Photography

I must admit, we here at Events, Etc. are rather biased toward Trail Creek Ranch. We just love it. It is the first place that I worked a wedding and the first place that Lisa worked a wedding. Alex, the property manager is pretty much the nicest, super helpful and most down to earth lady you ever met. The property has amazing history and surprisingly not a lot of people know about this little gem. A bonus is that it has lodging. There is not enough lodging for the whole wedding (unless you are having a very small wedding), but there is enough space for the near and dear guests who will be in town the whole week of a wedding. Not everyone wants a rustic-chic wedding, but those who do fall in love with Trail Creek Ranch. There is a functioning barn to get married in front of and guests can sit on bales of hay during the ceremony. If your guests are less rustic then you can bring in chairs for them. The cabins are basic, but perfect for getting ready while sipping champagne. Many of the cabins have a porch too, and my guess is that most people spend their time on the porch enjoying the views and crisp mountain air rather than inside. The site for the reception tent has sweeping views of the valley and Sleeping Indian mountain. I am getting excited for the summer just thinking about it all! It would not be an exaggeration to call this place magical.

Did you know? Trail Creek Ranch also has a swimming pool. This is a huge hit for kids and adults alike. What better way to spend the day after a wedding than splashing around in the pool?
