It's every Rocky Mountain wedding photographers' dream to photograph in the falling snow. Most of our weddings happen during the summer months, though. Snow is known to fall during those months, but it's pretty rare and rarer even to happen on a Saturday. So when I booked Corey and Scott's early October wedding in Victor, Idaho, which is just over the hill from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, it crossed my mind that we could have snow.
While I was photographing the getting ready portion of the day with Corey and her bridesmaids, the snowflakes started falling. I went outside with one of the more wild maids and photographed her playing in the snow. Brides are always a little worried when inclement weather comes in, so I tried to reassure everybody that not only was the snow not going to be a problem, but it was what I was hoping for. We did get a trickle of snow during the ceremony, which was well-timed and appreciated, but I was really hoping for something magical to use for portraits. This did come, but only after dark. Fortunately we had twinkle lights bordering the reception tent and their natural light provided just enough for that nighttime aura without losing any of the flakes to darkness. This is one of my favorite photos of the year.
