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! =)

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. =)

Here’s a look at Mike & Savannah’s Engagement Photography taken in downtown, Anchorage, Alaska . It was fun photographing them because I’ve known Mike for over 10 years now & Savannah for a couple of years. When they first got together, they lit up each others’ worlds & it’s a great joy to see them taking their relationship to the next level. I’m looking forward to many more years of knowing them & seeing them grow. =)
Andrew & Krystal were real troopers. It was February & we chose Beluga Point as our location for engagement photography – too windy. So we moved to McHugh Creek – Normally wind covered & perfect – again too windy. We did take some photos there, but we were all soo cold to the bone – so we moved over to the Anchorage museum & had a wonderful time being warm…. (& taking photos). =)
We just had a fun engagement photography session with Justin & Sarah down near Beluga Point. They were great sports in trying out a ton of different locations around Beluga Point & were awesome trying out new poses. I really liked the Black & White Photography, especially with all of the rocks & nice backgrounds. The photos came out classic looking. =) Enjoy the engagement photography:
Sarah & Tadd are a wonderful couple! They seem like they’ll have wonderful patience for one another as evidenced by this: It was amazing seeing Sarah stay so calm during the pre-wed events. The flower company had accidentally delivered all of their flowers to the wrong couple, which happened to have a wedding out at Big Lake (1.5 hours from Anchorage). As Sarah was informed of this 1 hour before the ceremony, she took it in stride, stayed calmed, and had someone run out to get her some flowers at a local grocery store. It wasn’t ideal, but the patience and improvisation allowed for the rest of the day to go wonderful! I never sensed panic or frustration in the air. It allowed for all around her to stay relaxed and enjoy the day, rather than have it a stressful & ruined day. I never found out, but hope that she got her full deposit back from the florist.

Here’s the first set of my favorite wedding photographs from their special day:
Jaci & Justin were a very fun couple to photograph. Jaci called me on the phone about 2 weeks ago & said that she needed someone to take pictures that week because she was flying back down to Texas to get married in April. She was up here visiting her fiance Justin, who is stationed here on Fort Richardson, Alaska. She also mentioned that she would be really excited to get some very Alaskan engagement pictures.
We headed out of town toward Beluga Point to take some photographs out on the island, overlooking the inlet. Unfortunately as we were headed South down the inlet, a giant gray cloud mass was headed North up the inlet. We may a quick change of plans and stopped at Potter’s Marsh – just barely outside of Anchorage. The sun was shining & creating an awesome glow on their skin. We took some beautiful engagement photos overlooking the inlet & a ton back on the boardwalk overlooking Potter Marsh.
Best of Luck on your marriage in April! =)
