Anchorage Alaska Family Portraits – Stewart Family

Returning to the Campbell Airstrip Trailhead, I met up with the Stewart family for a fun and quick family portrait.  The expressions we captured on the littlest one are simply priceless! =)

Anchorage Alaska Maternity & Couple Portrait Photography – Russ & Rachel + Livya (coming soon!)

Two of my really good friends are having their first baby! =)  Congratulations to Russ & Rachel on your first born.  Parenthood is such an adventure with ups, downs, growth, need for prayer, and maturing us in ways we otherwise cannot.  We had such a fun and relaxed time taking maternity photos last Tuesday at the Campbell Airstrip Creek trailhead, one of my favorite places in Anchorage! =)   I love the variety of photos. My favorites show Russ’ true love for his wife and little girl to be: Livya.  I’m looking forward to newborn photos with Livya in the near future. =)

 

Anchorage Alaska Family & Kid’s / Children’s Portrait Photographer – Grace

I have the wonderful blessing of knowing a great family: Nelson, Michelle, Grace, & soon to be Nelson III.  Today I had the privilege of taking their beautiful daughter, Grace’s one year old photos.  She got nice & bundled up, looking as cute as a button! =)  This was actually her first taste (literally) of playing in the snow.  Thank You Jesus for such a beautiful day! =)

Alaska Senior portraits – Anchorage High School Graduation Pics – Bartlett 2014

Met with Brooklyn last week for her Alaska Senior Pics and from the moment we started, she had a huge smile on her face.  I loved how easy and natural the senior portrait photoshoot came for making great photos! =)  Though feeling nervous, she did great!   I loved the balloon photos we took at the end as well. These are definitely some of my favorites senior pictures this year.  (We took these senior photos at the Loussac Library in Anchorage, Alaska.)

Had a Sunny Palmer Alaska Maternity Photoshoot with Mikki in Palmer.  It took a while to get her fiance into it, but eventually he came around and we got some good maternity photos. =)

The bridge is one of my favorite places in Alaska to photograph people on.  Let me know if you would like to have your maternity photos taken there! =)

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.

Had a very fun and friendly Anchorage Alaska High School Senior Portrait Photos with Cydney at Point Woronzof.  She was super friendly, had a super happy dog, and was very flexible with trying out different places and poses.  It was a lot of fun working with her.  My favorite senior pictures were with Cydney in the grass and next to the graffiti. I love how the grass photos look like she is in a grass field.  I love the graffiti because it’s just fun and playful!  She did a great job and helped us create awesome photos!

 

Wasilla Alaska Wedding Photographers – Tie Dye fRENZY! – Lance & Ariel

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 Alaska Engagement Portrait Photographers – Lauree from OK

At the beginning of May, I had the kind pleasure of meeting and photographing Lauree & her fiance for engagement portraits.  Lauree was up from Oklahoma visiting him, and would not return before their wedding in November.  I appreciated how kind, flexible, and easy to photograph they both were.  They were even willing to experiment with a location for creative photographs that I LOVE during the winter, but hadn’t tried in the spring/summer/fall.  At the time, was able to kill my first mosquito (hahaha!), and have since killed many more (*#%ing Mosquitoes!).  The location worked out decently enough, but not quite what I had imagined.  So in return, I wanted to reward them for their efforts & flexibility with a few more photos from a nearby side street & fence that gave us some great natural & relaxed portraits.   I wish them the best for their November 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 High School Senior Pictures – Ashley’s Portraits

Here’s the photos from a recent Anchorage High School Senior Pictures / Graduation Portrait session.   Ashley’s Portraits turned out great.  She was a very sweet person with a great family that came along for the shoot.  I really liked how her sweet personality really shined through in all of the senior photos. =)   In case you have not, please check out our outstanding prices for our all of our high school pictures or graduation portraits.

 

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 Wedding Photography – Faith Lutheran Church – Paul & Jeanne

This winter I had a wonderful opportunity for wedding photography at Jeanne & Paul’s wedding at Faith Lutheran Church in Anchorage, Alaska.   It was a wonderfully inviting group of friends and family that greeted them on their new journey.  I was happy to be a part of it too. =)

Anchorage Alaska Children & Family Portrait Photography – Cuddy Midtown Park

These were some fun family portraits and children’s photography.  The Children were very energetic and brought their own fun and energy interacting with each other. I enjoy when children have fun with each other as it brings out great smileys and fun children’s pictures

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.

Anchorage Alaska Senior Pictures – Downtown Anchorage – City Hall

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this young man’s senior pictures in Downtown, Anchorage, Alaska.  He was up visiting up from Texas in the middle of the winter (brr! for him).  We had a ton of fun trying all different kinds of poses, styles, and backgrounds.  Next year, he’s headed off to military college, and I wish him the best!
