We started with a cloudy/rainy first look and ended up with this *gorgeous* sunlight a couple of hours later! Classic Alaska. @akbridalinspiration @simplepetal @hair.makeupbyamber @fxfak
Thrilled to be sharing Abby & Taylor’s gorgeous wedding off the coast of Juneau today! (Link in profile!)
Loooove these table numbers. Simple and modern and lovely! @truenorthevents
I didn’t shoot their wedding but I DID get to spend some time last week taking them to some gorgeous spots for more bride & groom portraits together. With hair and make up re-done, the dress & kilt back on and even a bout and bouquet similar to the ones from the real wedding day last Summer. For me this was so. much. fun. A bride and groom all to myself for two hours, no pressure of the wedding day timeline or a hundred guests waiting. That never happens! But, read between the lines and you might figure out why I was hired for this shoot...after the wedding, when I was not their original photographer. PSA to all you engaged couples out there: Make sure your photographer is experienced! Make sure you’re comfortable with them. Make sure they are confident to take charge on a real live wedding day and can deliver. And if you’re not sure...maybe ask to see some full galleries. ❤️ Not trying to be pushy or rude BUT this isn’t the first time I’ve done re-takes, and it makes me sad to see this happening to so many couples out there.
One week married, forever to go.
I was in the process of getting a super romantic/intimate pose with Hana resting her head on Jason’s shoulder (or something) when she laughingly said something like ‘oh, ok this is one of those sad-bride things!’ I burst out laughing...because OMG what a true statement. Wedding photographer call out! We got this true to them, gloriously happy shot instead and Hana’s humor totally made my day. I love the intimate moments too, but only if it feels right. @alaskadestinationweddings @bloomsburyblooms
From last night, around 11pm. ☀️ This is when work feels like play for me! These two are getting married at his family home on the hillside THIS weekend, and after meeting them last night I could not be more excited. #midnightsun
I love the time I get to spend with my couples posing them in gorgeous compositions in front of the Alaskan beauty...but what I love most is capturing the more intimate moments, the glances held across a room, or the smile that reaches her eyes as she says her vows. Sophie & Shaun’s wedding on the Kenai was a stunner and I can not wait to share! @truenorthevents @fxfak @cusacksonthekenai @jennabakkmakeup @maximhairdesigninc
These two and all of their effortless perfection are on the blog! Friday night before the Fourth may not be the best time to maximize the reach of this stunning day, but I JUST finished this and couldn’t wait to share! @thewildandbeloved @thatfeelingco @freebird_907 @kierramanionmua @bateaubridalboutique
