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 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 Engagement Photography – Mike & Savannah

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.  =)

Anchorage Alaska Engagement Photography – Andrew & Krystal

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). =)

Enjoy!

Alaska Anchorage Wedding Photography: Kamaria & Wilmoth – Engagement

In addition to their wedding photography, Kamaria & Wilmoth said they wanted to add a post- wedding photography session in which we would photograph them in their wedding attire & then go to Beluga Point for some photos in the style of engagement photography.

We had an interesting & fun photography session.  During our post- wedding photography session, we encountered one of the park’s regular inhabitants.   At first Nolan was really nice & very interested in what we were doing, but kept his distance.   We noticed that he’d had some alcohol, but he remained calm.   As the photography continued, he became a little more friendly, then a little more friendly.  It eventually got to the point that he wanted to either be in the photo or direct me how to take the best photos.  All remained peaceful until the very last moment when we were leaving.  Nolan suddenly took offense to us & became very very confrontational.  Having clients with me & the fragile photo gear that I had on me, my goal was to avoid any physical altercation.  We tried staying calm, but he kept getting closer & closer no matter how quickly we walked.  At one point, I grabbed my keys in my fist just in case.  It seemed he was ready to swing any moment.

Thankfully nothing happened, but man that was an experience!  It did help that we were in a group & I found out later they all would’ve help protect each other, but man I do not wish for another one of those experiences!

The other good news:  We got some great Post- Wedding & Engagement Photography!  Enjoy:

Jaci and Justin Engagement Photography – Anchorage Alaska

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! =)
