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 […]

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 […]

Couples, Engagement, Portraits, Uncategorized, Wedding

What makes a book a great book? I think most of us would agree it has to do with the element of surprise. All these compelling little moments that lead up to a big reveal. Love stories are “written” in a similar way.

Being a “Type A” personality I love the first of the year. To me, January is a huge sigh of relief and it’s not just because I get to toss my old scribbled in planner and pick up a crisp, clean, fresh new one (although that’s not exactly a negative either). I live for a […]

Raeanna & Jordan’s Intimate Wedding at Sunset View Resort

Elopement, Photography, Portraits, Wedding

Big Lake, Alaska holds a very special place in my heart. Growing up we spent many summer days at my grandpas cabin, swimming, painting piggie banks, and roasting marshmallows. As you’d imagine I was thrilled to hear that Raeanna and Jordan had chosen the beautiful sunset view resort in Big Lake for their wedding.
