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,

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! =)
