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 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:

Jason & Sheila DeJarlais – Anchorage Wedding Photography

On June 11th, 2010 – Jason & Sheila DeJarlais were married.  It was a nice little wedding that took place in their backyard photographed by wedding photographers Stephen & David of Sweet Action Photography.  The backyard setting had a lot of trees & made for some good formal pictures without a lot of clutter.  Everyone dressed up nicely & the pictures came out looking nice. =)

Alaska wedding photography – Wasilla, Alaska – Emily & Cory’s Reception

Emily & Cory’s reception took place at the same place as their ceremony (but NOT outside! =-) )  It was a nice mellow & relaxed reception with very welcoming and warm people.  I enjoyed photographing everyone there.   Most people were really welcoming to have their picture taken by the “wedding photographer”, and even if not, I usually was able to sneak in a quick shot with a nice smile as they talked with someone else ( “Thank you, Zoom lens!”).

The catering was awesome, as I was very familiar with KFC.  =)  The reception had a very nice & intimate feel to it.  The laid back atmosphere was a nice change for me, as it meant I had a bit of a chance to get to know the guests.  Typically at receptions I’m so busy taking pictures because of all the activities going on that I’ll grab some food to eat, but then will immediately have to set it down & take pictures.  From time to time I’ll be able to scoot back to the table to grab something, but only for a minute or two because I see something that would be great to photograph. =)

Below is a smattering of the wedding photography pictures taken at the reception.  If you would like to order any prints of these pictures, I will be posting a link on this blog post soon, once I have all of the software uploaded & ready to go. =)  So feel free to check back when possible.

Enjoy the wedding pictures! =)

This is the fourth post in a series of 4 posts of the wedding photography from their wedding on Dec. 30, 2009.  These are the photographs taken at Emily & Cory’s reception.

I really enjoyed being at their wedding. The people there were great! I had many very positive & enjoyable conversations. I truly felt welcomed by all there at the wedding, even though nobody had ever met me before. =) If asked to do the wedding agin, I would definitely jump at the opportunity

I hope best wishes for all— especially Emily & Cory! =)

Alaska wedding photography in Wasilla, Alaska – Formal Poses

Immediately after the ceremony we moved back down the hill to take some classic wedding photography shots.  Since it was cold outside, we got many shots of people in jackets–depicting the “REAL Alaskan Wedding!” as Emily had told me when she first described her wedding ceremony.

The formals shots turned out pretty well, but I do have to say that there was this piece of light that really made things tricky.  Shots that I thought would be great, weren’t up to my expectations, but I’m happy to say there were still plenty of other wedding photography shots that turned out well.  As a photographer, it’s frustrating when something you visualize in your mind not be depicted in the picture that I have taken.  Despite all of that to say, I feel that the photographs for this Alaska wedding turned out really well overall. =)  My #1 goal is to give a great service and product for all of the wedding photography that I do.

My favorite wedding photography poses had to be the whole party jumping at once.  In the sequence of photos it looked like a wave was being created by the jump.  The left part of the line jumped first, and it followed progressively throughout the line til the end on the right side. Finally, The wedding party decided to brave the cold momentarily & take some nice formal shots with their beautiful dresses & tuxes.

I hope you enjoyed,

Alaska wedding photography in Wasilla, Alaska of Emily and Cory – The Ceremony!

The ceremony turned out really well. It was beautiful doing wedding photography at such a beautiful location as Wasilla outdoors. When I first heard about the wedding being an outdoor wedding in December, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to photograph the wedding. I thought “What a cool idea to have an outdoor wedding in December.” As I got to thinking about it more & more, I realized that the word cool really meant what a COLD wedding this would be to photography.

Thankfully, the wedding ended up being during about 15-20 degrees F (-5 C for those Canadians not watching the Olympics :) ) so it wasn’t too bad. Of course, I had the luxury of wearing a jacket & looking ridiculous with two hats on my head. That’s right–two hats on my head! I looked ridiculous, but stayed warm! =)

The ceremony turned out really well & we got some really beautiful wedding photography shots, including some awesome shots of the couple walking down the aisle & confetti flying everywhere. It was an awesome moment to be a wedding photographer. =)
