Last fall things came full circle when Mandy asked me to shoot her wedding in downtown Anchorage. The day her and Phil planned was all sorts of special from their sky-high ceremony, to the fleet of vintage cars, and all the way to their feast of Moose’s Tooth and Wild Scoops. What’s more than all those beautifully executed details though was how special this wedding was for me.
Amanda and Kyle celebrated their wedding in a marshy meadow encircled by those they love on one of the sunniest July days you’ve ever seen. The first time I met Amanda and Kyle’s little pixelated faces, we talked for hours and it became very clear that their roots run deep into the ground. They don’t hold […]
There was a night called Wednesday of September when we all brought our blankets and hot dogs to be together and watch movie on the grass. Community is a sweet thing.

We, as women, were made so […]
James and Kristi share some of the most unadulterated and tangible love. All wedding details aside, if they would have been wearing trash bags standing in an alley way when they pledged their lives to each other- it would have been just as substantial and beautiful. And that is a truly remarkable thing. For all […]
It happened a few months back. Another photographer posted about the wicked sweet products they had found in a company called H.H. Boogie . So. Naturally- intrigue led to exploring that eventually landed me on the page of “The Unshop.” A non workshop feeling photographer gathering put on by H.H. Boogie in Ohio, saturated with […]
We certainly had ourselves an adventure of epic proportions, from that time I almost lost my car keys- twice- to that time that man with the chihuahua asked us is we were having car problems. Taco trucks. Angsty German women. And roadside stops to chase the light. Here is Alli. Alli is a senior. And […]
