The Adventurous Alaska Photography Experience

BOOK NOW

I thrive with people who love to live life, and I can take the best photos when you let loose and be completely yourself, not worrying about whether you should be smiling at the camera. To me, the magic happens in the in-between moments. The way your parents hold each other watching you say your vows. The laughter your friends share on the dance floor when a high school classic blasts through the speakers. The expressions on mom's face as she zips her daughter's wedding dress. The way your groom looks at you as you from across the room. These moments tell your unique wedding day story. These are the moments I dream of capturing for you to relive your day.

I have had countless couples tell me that they are just so awkward in front of the camera. My response -- ME TOO! But that's what I love about what I do. With some action based prompting and posing, you'll quickly forget you're having your photos taken and end the evening having fun simply hanging with your S.O.

-You're up for trudging through anything

-You're pumped no matter the weather on your wedding day because you're just stoked to be married

-You love laughing with your partner and just being with each other while I hang out snapping photos

-You believe that your photos are worth the investment for your day. 

You're in the right place if:

For me, adventurous doesn't mean you have to have some insane Alaska destination adventure planned for your session or wedding.

Where are you based? Do you ever photograph couples that travel to Alaska?

I am based in Anchorage, AK. One of my absolute favorite things is to capture couples who have traveled to Alaska on vacation! I love showing off my favorite spots, and ensuring your backdrop screams, "We're not in Kansas anymore!" But seriously, I'll show you some secret spots, and share with you all of my favorite restaurants, hikes, breweries, and places to visit while you're here.
