Glacier Park is called the switzerland of america

It’s hotels & chalets model the charm of Swiss architecture, and it’s epic mountains peaks match the grandeur of the Swiss Alps. Even more, this beautiful place was once called “The Backbone of the World” and now known as the The Crown of the Continent. It’s no coincidence that this spectacular place has been given all these paramount titles. Imagine your wedding day with the backdrop of this mysterious, romantic & breathtaking place in the world! 

Jennifer Mooney Questions

A walk through of what it's like to work with me
for your elopement.

I care. I care about you, your day, the behind the scenes details. I know that what makes great memories and stories is having someone by your side who cares, goes above and beyond and puts you first, making you the star. In a world, where everything is becoming impersonal – I am personal and innovative. My business has been built on providing my clients with the quality and excellence I myself want to experience. My passion is to add to the beauty of the world and leave it better than when I began. So my process with my clients (you) is to make sure that I get to know you prior to your wedding day, and be able to tell your story, and connection, while making you feel comfortable and look stunning!



What makes you different from other Wedding Photographers?

1 of 14

Because love brings out the best in us, and the best of everything in the world. 10 years ago, I photographed my first wedding as a bridesmaid for my brother’s wedding I was in a 20,000 square foot Italian Mansion at a California winery overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area. Music was playing so the whole house could hear as the entire family was busily getting the wedding ready. Then Sting's "Desert Rose" came on - it was a moment that escalated into a momentum of passion wrapped up inside me. It was this experience, that in truth brought out something amazing & inspiring in me. I was still in photography school and went back and changed the direction of my photography path. I thought I was going to travel, write a book & become a documentary photographer. I have been a wedding photographer ever since!




Why do you love, love?

2 of 14

My parents - I love that my school was a life of experiencing. I was homeschooled, it’s a very valuable part to how I see the world and how I approach it. My parents raised my siblings & I very out of the box. They would always teach us key things like “follow your heart not the norm”, “when you don’t have peace, stop” “give your best, no matter what,” and instead of always having us learn through a text book, they gave us experiences. This included travel, helping in the kitchen, designing a website, and learning to play the piano by ear instead of by looking at a note. This basis of learning is what I apply in every part of my life, career and extend to my clients.

Who has helped you to get to this point in your career?

We most definitely have helpful resources & help guide you with this! If needed we will communicate with the permit rangers regarding your elopement location. We also have planning services to help further! Things like marriage licenses must be obtained by the couple in the State of Montana!




Do you typically help with obtaining the marriage license or permitting (if needed)?

The excitement and anticipation of seeing your captured memories! We love getting you immediate previews! Within 24 hours guaranteed - we will get you a preview of your wedding day! You want that “thank you” picture, or the picture with your grandma, you bet! Ask us and we’ll send it over asap! Turn around time for our full beautiful fine art galleries are 6-10 weeks during our peak months (May-October) and 2-6 weeks during non-peak months (November-April). 


Turn Around Time


5 of 14

There are some questions on why it takes so long, and here’s why: I LOVE WHAT I DO & I want to give you my best quality product possible! And to ensure I can give you the best quality end heirloom images - I not only have an editor who helps with my editing style, but I don’t let one image leave my editing space without my wholehearted approval. Rest, family time & healthy exercise are vital for consistent quality delivery to my clients during our peak season, and though I’ve currently never gone past the 8 week mark (knock on wood! - but I will certainly be in touch with you if so!) - I have given myself this window, to ensure I don’t cut quality of our service by cutting the quality of life (something I’m deeply passionate about)! 


Turn Around Time


6 of 14

All my clients receive their wedding images in an online gallery to be able to download & print themselves. All my clients from 10 years ago still have their galleries online & available! I leave them up and because I know the fear of loss in our digital age, they stay. Images are delivered edited high resolution, you get a print release to be able to print yourselves, as well as access to our professional print shop to shop wholesale heirloom professional prints. (If you haven’t purchased the digital negatives due to a portrait collection you chose, this doesn’t apply.) Some packages include a custom USB, and this can also be an add on to any collection.



Delivery & Format of Images


7 of 14

Yes - We offer our elopement pricing Sunday-Friday.
 Full wedding collections are also 10% off weddings November - April.


Is there a difference in weekend price vs weekday? 

8 of 14

There is no set amount of photos I deliver to my clients. I provide you with multiple copies of different poses for you to choose through according to what you like. I remove duplicates, blinking, & out of focus. Your amount of photos could depend on the experience you choose (wedding, elopement, full weekend coverage, day-after, hiking, engagement, getting ready, details, pre-day before shoot, how many family, friends, details etc.) Feel free to inquire to see full galleries of what experience you’re interested in!



How many photos will we receive?


9 of 14

Yes, all of this is included with all my packaging - and as a bonus, because I am a wedding planner as well, I offer planning service add-ons to help you with further planning needs!



Do you assist with logistics, timeline, scouting for the best photos, and referrals for other vendors ex. floral, officiant, hair/makeup?



10 of 14

Yes, we offer add ons as well as a few collections that include different locations within Glacier Park!  




Do you have packages with a day before/after adventure session?


11 of 14

Yes! Every package has the ability to add on hours, some packages even include all day coverage!




Do you offer the ability to add an extra hour on to a package?



12 of 14

I've done over 225 weddings as of end of 2019, and our team has a combined experience of over 300 weddings!  



How many weddings have you done?

With prior experience 12 years ago having lost photos taken of me, it's been absolutely my #1 goal to backup images, over and over again. When I went to photography school in 2010, we went over and over this, and it is hard core part of my workflow! On our cameras we shoot to 2 cards at once (backing up images), and once we get home from your event we are backing up your photos to 2 external harddrives, and then into an online cloud. I currently own 4 cameras: (2) 5DMark3 Canon, Fuji xt-2, and 7D Canon. We are always having fun renting new gear and experimenting with new lenses as well! My second photographer (usually Katherine) also has 2 cameras she brings to every wedding: 5dMark4 & 5dMark2! 



What is your system for gear & backing up images?

Questions

We believe that no matter how you choose to get married, your experience should be just as special. So at Jennifer Mooney Weddings we invest the same amount of time, energy & beautiful magic into our clients who choose to elope, as we do clients who choose the full wedding experience.
We spend on average 40 hours on each elopement. Our collections are based on this experience.
 Typical Elopements consist of only the bride and groom.   However we include up to 25 guests because we know it's hard to keep people away from Montana!

"I’ve named this package the “Cliffs of Moher” as I’ll be traveling to Ireland in 2020 with my parents & sisters. During this trip we’ll be celebrating not only my parents 40th wedding anniversary but it will be the first time we’ll be visiting our family home country! So, what better name for the most spectacular experience that I can offer you!"

"I traveled to Switzerland in 2007, and my breath was taken away at just the surface of how beautiful this country is. Their beautiful wooden charming timeless homes, the epic mountain peaks, and the warmth of the different cultures. Fun fact: It’s common to speak & hear 4 languages in Switzerland as it’s a central & adjoining country! It was mind blowing when I moved near Glacier in 2012, to find that Glacier Park is called the “Switzerland of America” with its chalets mirroring Swiss architecture, because it’s legendary mountains peaks match the magnificence of the Swiss Alps. In my own backyard is a place, I believe to be even more beautiful, with charm unmatched! There really is no better name for this experience."

“Glacier Park is one of the most beautiful places In The World. It's a small hidden secret at the top of Montana, but one of the most beautiful discoveries and places to see. Having traveled the world, there is no place that is as dear to my heart nor can match the beauty & mystery of Glacier Park.”
