On December 22nd, 2013 we had a beautiful snowy day in Anchorage, Alaska, and what better than to create a Winter Wonderland Photoshoot!  I met with Tim & Anesha on the Tudor Curve for a beautiful snowy photography.  The weather was perfect for fun and frolicking!  What a great time with some awesome Alaska family photos.

Anchorage High School Senior Portraits Photographers – Cindy’s Senior Pictures

I met Cindy at the Alaska Botanical Garden in August.   We perused all the different landscape at the beautiful garden.  We also moved up the road to photograph a few more pictures in one of my favorite places along Tudor.   Cindy is a Senior at West high school, and looking forward to going to college next year. =)  She is a very, very kind gal with a beautiful natural smile.  It was a nice, relaxed, and wonderful senior picture session.  I really like how Cindy’ senior portraits turned out awesome.

Alaska Wedding Photographers

Tie Dye fRENZY!  This is what Lance & Ariel’s wedding was about.   A nice small gathering of friends & family in the woods of the grooms’ parents  house in Wasilla, Alaska.  The wedding included awesome tie dye flowers, her friends in tie dye dresses, and the flower girl in a fairy tale tie dye dress.  It was “Legend…wait for it…dary!”   This was one of the most visually attractive weddings I have photographed.  The great outdoors, mixed with the fun, colors made it awesome.  For Wedding Photography Portraits headed down the road to an old abandoned warehouse, a sand & gravel pit, & train tracks to top off this Awesome Tie Dye Alaska Wedding! =)

Anchorage Couple’s Portraits – Alaska Engagement Photography – April 19th, 2013

A beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day to… take some awesome engagement photos of Shelby & Her soon-to-be hubby. =)  We met just off the road on tudor & enjoyed some April sun rays.  Then later headed down Tudor for one of my favorite portrait places: the bridge on campbell creek.  As always, I loved seeing their love for each other, and the precious time spent together.   I felt honored by some great compliments from the couple, saying how relaxed and natural they felt with me as their photographer throughout the engagement photography session.  :)  It always makes my day to hear I helped make other’s days too. =)

Anchorage Engagement Portraits – Photography of David & Clarissa

Had a wonderful time with David & Clarissa at Glen Alps, Flat Top in Anchorage, Alaska.  We had an engagement portrait session with some rather perfect weather, that is if you’re not wearing Converse Tennis Shoes (right, David?).  The scenery is stunning as always, and the photos came out great.  However, my favorite part of the engagement portrait shoot was watching the interaction, care, & devotion these two already have towards each other.  I can tell they are just good to each other & for each other.  It doesn’t take too hard of a look to see those essential elements pop in the engagement photos below.

Anchorage Alaska Wedding Photography – Throw-Back Favorites

I was looking through our photo collections, and I stumbled upon these photos.  Since I over hauled the website for this design, I have been wanting / needing of creating lot many more blog posts about wedding photography from all of the years we have been doing it.  However, haven’t had the time to get it all up there.  So, I thought “Hey!  Let’s give a little throw-back blog post of some of our favorites wedding photos from several years ago.  I am hoping to eventually add these weddings into our blog post collections.    There are also several photos from engagement photography as well. =)   Please enjoy all of the wedding photography & wedding photojournalism from around Anchorage & Alaska:

Anchorage Alaska Wedding Photography – Burdue Wedding BW version

Anchorage Alaska Wedding Photography – Had the wonderful pleasure of meeting & photographing the newly married Burdues on their wedding day in June.  They were good friends of some old friends/coworkers, and had recommended me to them.  It was great being a part of the b/c there was genuine love and trust already built up well within their relationship.  It was a joy to see how much care & adoration Bob has for his new wife & I wish them the best!

You will notice that all photos are BW – don’t worry, we took color copies too! =)  I just had chosen my favorites in BW this time, and wanted to share them with you.  Maybe, if you’re lucky, I’ll post some color versions as well! =)

Anchorage High School Senior Pictures (Senior Pics) / Graduation Portraits – Matthew’s Portraits

Just met up with Matthew on Saturday for his Anchorage High School Senior Pictures at Lousac Library.  It was a great time b/c Matthew was such a chilled person.  I really enjoyed how friendly he and his mother, Deanna, were.  They even hooked me up with a nice pair of gloves so that my fingers wouldn’t freeze!  I was amazed at how well Matthew held up in the cold, no complaining or anything. =)  I have found that I do not like the stiff robotic look that some poses can create, and he did a great job of moving into nice modeling naturally, that didn’t look like a robot.  He made it fun, and as I always tell people, the more fun you have, the more fun the photos are. =)

Anchorage Engagement Photography – Fun & Goofy

Had the pleasure of taking some engagement photos of a fun and goofy couple at the museum in Anchorage, Alaska.  I had so much fun as they made the experience super enjoyable for both them and myself.  It was great to see what I tell people that the more fun they have, the more fun the photos are! :)

 

Anchorage Family Portraits – Peter’s Creek, Alaska – Beautiful Fall Foliage

What a wonderful family portraits session I had with Richelle & her family at Peter’s Creek, Alaska.  They were very friendly & the kids were full of expression.  I loved meeting with them for this Fall Anchorage Family Portrait session.  The leaf fight was by far my favorite scenes to shoot!

Anchorage Alaska High School Senior Pictures Lindsay at Point Woronzof

Lindsay did a wonderful job of being a model for our senior pics photoshoot. At the beginning of the senior pics she was feeling really nervous.  After a little bit of joking around, and encouraging her that she was doing a great job, she really relaxed.  The Senior pics came out great, and showed her natural beauty with some fun and creative photos.

Anchorage High Senior Pictures with Lindsay

Hard to believe, by the end, but Lindsay started out very shy.  As we got to talking, and she got used to have a camera taking her photos, her natural smile and beauty showed through.  I love photographing high school seniors because I often get to see people who are very shy to get their photographs, open up and feel very natural and have fun as we move around, talk, and get to know each other.  I consider it a huge privilege to get to learn so much about a person’s life in such a short time.  It’s a joy to learn how life is, interests, goals, dreams.

Here’s a little preview of the wedding photography taken at Joe & Elizabeth’s wedding.  If I take just one thing away from this wedding, it is that these two people love & cherish each other.  It was so evident throughout the day their joy from being united. =)  What a wonderful experience it was to be there with these two wonderful people who I know have chosen & will continue to be with each other the rest of their lives!   On the photography side of things, they were a ton of fun for wedding photography as they were willing to do whatever & have a lot of fun doing it too! =)  Their smiles, fun personalities & crazy antics helped me run through all of my cards & 70 GB worth of photos in just 5 hours!   More to come in another post, as there were too many photos for this blog to handle!  Enjoy
