Just over two year ago I photographed a wedding where Karen was the maid of honor and Gabby was the best man.

Sarah and Ryan’s Epic Mountain Wedding at Arctic Valley

Couples, Portraits, Wedding

The variety that Alaska offers in terms of location is almost shocking. Everything from mountains, to oceans, beaches to fields, metropolitan (small as that one may be) to wilderness. The sky is literally the limit! It’s no surprise that the favorite for most is the epic mountain views that are so uniquely Alaskan…

Grace and Mike’s Stunning Wedding at Gloryview Farms

Couples, Photography, Wedding

My umbrellas packed, my boots secured, coat fastened, I trudged out through pouring rain for Grace and Mike’s Wedding day. It had been raining for weeks. At the rehearsal, they decided to move the ceremony under the beautiful pavilion at Gloryview Farms in Wasilla. Just as I started to unpack, the rain began to lighten. […]

When I met with Kylee and Matt last year for their very first bridal we sat, sipped coffee, and got to know each other. Kylee and Matt described a wedding that was fun, unique, and colorful…

Leslie & MJ’s Beautiful Wedding at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage

Couples, Portraits, Wedding

While the world is returning to pre-pandemic normality, the wedding industry is a little delayed in correcting. Schedules fill up fast and far in advance, many wedding vendors learned the hard way that burnout is real. Weddings are a big event and we pour so much of ourselves into these events and we need appropriate […]

Kristel & Troy’s Elegant Wedding at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage

Couples, Portraits, Wedding

There are so many beautiful moments at a wedding. The groom seeing his bride for the very first time, a newlywed couples first kiss, their first dance, the moment a couple realizes they are no longer bride and groom but husband and wife. It can be hard to choose just one moment to talk about. After Kristel and Troy’s wedding it wasn’t difficult.

Xaviera & Chong’s Summer Wedding at Bayshore Clubhouse

Couples, Portraits, Wedding

In the wedding industry the term “ideal client” gets tossed around a lot. We’re told to envision the bride you want to serve. Make decisions with her in mind. It takes time and energy to create this persona but because of that, I knew from their first consultation I was going to love every single second of my time with Xaviera and Chong.

Lindsay & Kyle’s Epic Alaska Elopement

Couples, Elopement, Portraits, Wedding

The last few years have been monumental to say the least. I’ll be the first one to admit that I have very little good things to say about them.  Let’s just admit it, it stunk. But, along with the necessary changes to our day to day life I think we can all agree the pandemic […]

Stunning Sunrise Pregnancy Announcement

Couples, Family, Maternity, Portraits

Photography tends to revolve around the really big moments; senior portraits, engagement photos, wedding portraits,  maternity photos, the list goes on. It is a great responsibility and a true blessing to be able to experience life changing moments with the most wonderful people, especially when those moments are a secret. As a photographer, you not […]

Allison’s Spring College Graduation Session at the University of Alaska Anchorage

Photography, Portraits, Senior

All Alaskans know that spring here looks a little different than spring in the Lower 48 (known to non-Alaskan as the Contiguous United States). We don’t even really refer to it as Spring, the month of April is more often referred to as “Break Up Season”.
