Redfish Lake wedding near Stanley, Idaho.

Patrick and Kate were married on the east slope of the Sawtooth Mountains in the small town of Stanley, Idaho. The mountains that defined their ceremony’s backdrop and the waters that flow from them are both intimate to these two mountain people-as Patrick works as a ski guide and Kate was a professional whitewater rafting guide, now a school teacher.
I’ve been out in the backcountry skiing with Patrick and Kate works at the elementary school across the street from my house. Both are amazing people with big hearts, an amazing level of patience, and zest for adventure. Their wedding day reflected these traits, it was easy going, full of love, and lots of fun!

A photograph from a Stanley, Idaho, engagement session photographed by Craig Wolfrom

I met Rebecca while photographing a wedding down in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, early last year. Rebecca’s great friend, Leah, was getting married to Jimmy and I was their photographer; as seen here. Unfortunately, Becca’s beau was unable to make the Baja trip and I was not afforded the pleasure of his acquaintance until a few months ago. I’ve since been hired to photograph this fun couple’s summer wedding which will be held up at Trail Creek Cabom in Sun Valley, Idaho. This past Friday, they swung into the Wood River Valley for their engagement session. We hopped in my car and headed north to Stanley and back, stopping at places I thought would be fun to use as backdrops: Galena Lodge, Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, etc. It was a fun session thanks to their easy going demeanors and contagious laughter! Here are some of the pics we captured….

Images of a mountain wedding held at Redfish Lake in Idaho.

High school sweethearts, Erin and Colby, were married on the north beach of Redfish Lake a few weeks back with the amazing Sawtooth mountains as their backdrop. Their wedding celebration was orchestrated by the couple and done so fantastically. Their band, a group of good friends who came together for the evening, were amazing and played like they were a regularly, weekly practicing, and touring gig. Erin brought in beautiful ambient lights for the reception and had to run them (and the band) of a generator. The “oooooh’s” and “ahhhh’s” that came collectively from their guests throughout the night as the generator ran out of gas and was then resupplied, lights going out and the band switching between electric and accoustic, was classic and taken in humorous stride!

Congrats on such a fun and beautiful wedding Erin and Colby!

Wedding image from the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch.

The Sawtooth mountain range is one of the most beautiful backdrops around. Anike was so awestruck by these mountains as child when her father would bring her to the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch, that she brought her fiance, Matt, and their kids out from England to be married on the lawn of the Ranch. As I drove North on their warm August wedding day, I knew a wildfire had started a few miles north of IRMR and was getting out of control. I kept hoping the smoke wouldn’t be anywhere near, however, it had and was inundated the valley and obscured the peaks by the time I arrived.

As should be the case, Anike and Matt were unaffected by the smoke and were full of bliss. Just as their ceremony began, the winds miraculously shifted 180 degrees and blew most of the smoke away! Congratulations Anike and Matt. I hope Idaho and the IRMR tradition continues with your kids and that we get to see one another again on your next visit!

Megan and Daniel decided to get hitched up in Stanley not only because it is one of the most stunning mountain venues in the U.S., but also because of their personal ties to the land and it’s rivers. Daniel and his best man used to guide the rivers around Stanley and he and Megan have camped up in the Nip-n-Tuck area above town. Thunder heads threatened their ceremony during their final preparations, but, in the end only helped tie their knot tighter thanks to a little rain shower! Megan built time into her reception for us to cruise around to a few different portrait locations that highlighted the scenery the Sawtooths have to offer.

Congrats Megan and Daniel! Many thanks for everything.
