Anchorage Museum Wedding.  I love the art gallery at the Anchorage Museum. It’s filled with beautiful light and paintings that stir the soul. Given that winter lasts about 6 months in Alaska, indoor venues are a must and this one is the perfect choice. It’s also a great way to really include Alaska and it’s […]

Lanai Lookout is a truly unique landscape for the perfect backdrop on your wedding day. Its magical in any light, but sunrise is everything here. And if you need a photographer willing to get up at 4 am and drive across the island to catch it, I’m your girl. This shoot was inspired by the soft […]

I’m so happy to have finally made it out to Snow Peak Farm for Sharif & Ivy’s beautiful wedding. It’s one of Alaska’s newest venues and adding new features all the time. This year they opened a fully furnished and swoon-worthy bridal suite, complete with a vintage furniture lounge and bridesmaids vanity.  The property is […]

Alaska glacier wedding. Winter weddings may not be the first choice for many, but Alaska inspires you to embrace it. What says Alaska winter more than glaciers and ice walls like this one? This editorial is a tribute to the elements that are made for the wild and free-spirited bride. Rather than a day with everything […]

The Gathering Place is my favorite venue in Alaska and autumn my favorite season, so this wedding takes the cake best of 2018. Not to mention we had the most gorgeous fall colors and unusually warm temperatures to really show it off. Golden hour may be the norm for lower 48 weddings, but we wait […]

Alaska lake wedding.  Alaskan weddings tend to be of a more intimate nature and I love that. Even at popular venues, you get the feeling of being in the backyard with your closest friends…and there just happens to be gorgeous scenery surrounding you. But that’s Alaska and we can’t get enough. Colin and Emma chose […]

To me a beach session never gets old. Don’t quickly rule out this classic when considering what kind of engagement photo shoot to do. A photographer can’t ask for much more than the many epic beaches in Kauai. Seriously, it hosts some of my favorites in the world. Even when a few were closed due to […]

At Blank Space here in Alaska, we created this intimate wedding inspiration to show off the beauty of choosing a smaller event for your big day. I love all wedding photography in general, but these types of weddings hold a special place in my heart. They provide a more relaxed environment and allow the focus to be […]

For an Alaskan photographer, it doesn’t get much better than Girdwood. It has it all-waterfalls, fields, mountaintops, and Turnagain Arm at its entrance. This wedding began with a romantic first look amongst the mountains and fields. Lets talk first looks. I’m not knocking the traditional isle walk first look, but when I see these photos I’m […]

Kauai elopement photographer.  I am not a morning person, but when I’m in Hawaii I find myself waking for sunrise instinctively. It’s cool, quiet, and the most epic of views only for those who make the effort. Justin and Whitney are as in love with the islands and I am, so we woke up at […]
