I had the pleasure of ringing in the New Year by photographing Whitney & Brandon’s wedding at the Sheraton Hotel in Anchorage! Whitney & Brandon are amazing, and I am so happy for them as they start out on this new adventure together. It always warms my heart to see two people so totally in love with each other. I’ve heard it said that the friends you keep say a lot about who you are, and that is certainly the case with Whitney and Brandon, every guest that attended was so sweet and kind that it made the night that much more wonderful. Beautiful wedding, beautiful couple, and here’s wishing you a wonderfully beautiful marriage and family!
I’ve never done a Day-of-the-wedding shoot before, but I love them! Joleen, Jason, and I had a great time in the freezing snow today! Joleen and Jason have been dating for 16 years, and are still completely and totally in love. They are a positive and happy couple, and a joy to be around. They both teach P.E. for the Anchorage School District, and love Cross Country and Hockey, so I knew we needed to be shooting outside. I always love to see couples who’ve kept the spark of love alive in their relationship. I wish you both all the best in your new marriage. Thanks for letting be a part of your special day!
Pulling into the Salmondoux Lodge the last minute touches were being made on the front lawn, while the sounds of children playing floated in the air along with the scent of a fire still smoldering in the distance. People scurried from here to there in a way that seemed to match the rivers nearby bustle.
In a cabin not far from the bustle, Stevie and her accomplices were busy primping and polishing bantering back and forth in a deliciously sarcastic way only the best of friends can.
Throughout the day you could see what a family Stevi and Buck have, of friends who are warm and welcoming, and relatives who care so much for both of them.
Even as a photographer I felt more like I was attending one of my family’s reunions in Oregon rather than a formal occasion. though teleprompted surreptitiously from the front seats, their vows showed the same love and admiration for one another I saw throughout the day. I have to say that this wedding was one I’ll remember for a long time. I wish you all the best Stevie & Buck, you are both amazing and I know your future will be full of love and laughs.
I am so happy that I got to shoot Taylor and Jennifer’s wedding just a hop and a skip away from Alyeska Resort. The ceremony and reception were both held at Crow Creek Mine in Girdwood, and we lucked out on almost perfect weather for the whole day. I just love it when Girdwood has those misty peaks that fade into the sky. I love Jen and Taylor, their wedding was beautiful and Jen did a wonderful job weaving peacock feathers into all the different areas of the event. Congratulations you two!
I think I’m in love with Canada, for Krista and Damon’s I traveled to the Perry Sound near Toronto. The Pemberton’s little quaint family cottage was the perfect setting to have this sweet little wedding. Krista and Damon are so sweet and happy with one another that catching gentle moments was almost too easy for me. Congratulations you two!
