I still get goosebumps when I think of the moment when Sarah opened Ricky's gift to her on their wedding day. It was dozens of little prayer cards labeled with the date that he had been praying for Sarah from the beginning of their relationship to the wedding day. I cried, she cried...pretty sure everyone in the room was in tears! Thoughtfulness trumps expensiveness every time.
You two keep on looking at each other like this and everything's gonna work out just fine!
You guys...the light is back! But it is still so. cold. 😭😭 I don't know why the cold is bothering me so much more all of a sudden, but I'm doing everything I can to feel cozy...and to me, if this picture is anything it is COZY.
Last week I pretended to be casually out for a skate at -10 degrees so that when Mitch dropped to one knee at center ice, I would be there to capture it...you know, NBD 😳 My fingers have never been so cold but it was absolutely worth it. They met playing high school hockey and skated on this rink for their first date so it only made sense that this is where he would propose. 💍❄️ ...oh, and she said Yes!
I'm shooting lots of intimate weddings and elopements in 2017...more than in all my other years combined 😍 I started a second instagram feed that will focus especially on these intimate affairs... check out @alaskaelopements if you want to follow along!
Like most wedding professionals I carry a few emergency essentials...you know, just snacks, Tylenol, bandaids, bobby pins and micro-spikes (because ICE!) @kahtoola came through for us at my wedding last week...The slip-factor on Matt's shoes was no joke!
In Alaska, when it's snowing, we wear boots.
This one was a *true* elopement! No one knew these two were tying the knot until after it happened...so romantic. Loved photographing these two putting a ring on it on a snowy Alaskan afternoon. 💍
These two. Laughing with (at?) each other all day long...that's what I love to see 😍 Thanks for featuring this gorgeous Alaskan wedding @weddingchicks Vendors: @blommadesigns @aflatis @spinentertainment @sweetherbivore Riza +Brown Catering, Forget Me Not Nursery
And...the adventure continues! I'm so excited to share that I've been invited to be one of the guest speakers at the @holdtrueworkshop in West Palm Springs, May 2-4!! Registration just opened today and they are offering special early bird pricing for ONE WEEK! Honest Moment...even though I have thought about doing something like this for several years, this kind of thing pushes me way past my comfort zone! But you don't grow in the safety zone, am I right?! I would absolutely love to see a familiar face or two. ❤High fashion shoots, a mock wedding day and lots of shared wisdom in a *stunning* location...mmmm, yes please!
