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