People often ask me if I prefer to document weddings or just attend as a guest. The thing about documenting is that it allows me the opportunity to be a part of many moments I wouldn’t be privy as a guest. Making photos and films is such intimate and immersive work. Given the choice, I […]
Elizabeth and Jesse were one of my first couples to question how the pandemic might affect their wedding plans. In early spring of 2020, covid was so new to us all and no one could predict how long everything was going to last. As time went on, I watched (and endeavored to support) these two […]
Some people just have a touch of magic in their spirit. You know it’s love from the first text. First email. First Facetime. Their energy permeates even a pixelated interaction and you just. know. Those people are Steph and Geoff. I don’t think I could really even do justice with words to how amazingly special […]
With a colorful history and certain quirks that still characterize daily life, Whittier is the kind of place you just don’t forget. From its one-way-at-a-time tunnel to its just over 200 residents, it’s a quiet little town with charming mystique. At the time, Brienne described it as her soon to be hubby’s, “kind of place, […]
— Her Favorite Place In The World Brittany & Larry met while working summer jobs in Seward years ago. It’s their special place. She describes it as “her favorite place in the world.” When they decided to elope, they planned the most wonderful celebration for themselves including a boat tour of the bay, an intimate […]
Niki and Chepo’s best man couldn’t have said it better when he described their celebration as the biggest wedding “since Prince Harry’s royal wedding.” This downtown Anchorage wedding video is one for the ages with 500 guests, a mariachi band, and a sixteen foot floral chandelier. — — It’s no surprise this couple has such […]
Olivia & Scott had two wedding celebrations. The first was spent with family and the second was the most epic adventure in Alaska. Alpha Aviation took these guys (and me!) on the tour of a lifetime that showcased Alaska and all her beauty, from the mountaintops to the glacial streams. Olivia & Scott are bright, energetic, and funny as hell and I hope you enjoy their epic elopement as much as I did!
Christine & Austin are two people who know how to get down and I appreciate that about them. You can see their playful energy come through in their portraits, in the way they dance and interact with their friends. Their lively wedding at Crow Creek Mine came on a rainy day in Girdwood, as the days in Girdwood often are. But under the safe covering of a clear tent, their parade was undampened.
There’s a certain serenity in the small seaside town at the end of the road. Seward has always held my heart and just might be my favorite place in all of Alaska. I was beyond excited that Melissa & Chris had me down to photograph their wedding there last summer. They even had me come early to photograph family photos on the beach and their quaint backyard party the day before.
Of all it brings to the table, one of the most beautiful parts about my job is the opportunity it affords me to witness and celebrate love on a regular basis. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the what a privilege it is to be truly known and loved by someone. It doesn’t come around everyday and when it does, it takes a while for the roots to grow.
