When I first met with Julia and she began describing her hopes for she and Adam’s wedding day, I genuinely felt my heart rate increase just a little bit. I think this was one of those weddings that I was just meant to photograph. Hatcher Pass is a place that holds significance for me personally, and I can’t imagine many more beautiful places to be married. I love to see Alaskans taking advantage of the natural beauty all around us on their wedding days! Julia & Adam considered the possibility of rain (or even snow) falling on their wedding ceremony, the weather is always going to be a gamble here. What they determined was that a little rain wouldn’t hurt, and that it was more important to be married in this place than to worry about something that is beyond their control. Clearly, in this case the gamble paid off and we had the most breathtakingly beautiful Fall day for their wedding! I truly admire that attitude, and hope that I will get the opportunity to work with many more Alaskan couples with that sort of adventuresome spirit. Adam & Julia, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. I will truly never forget the beauty of your celebration! All my best to you both as you begin this new journey together.
Summit Lake, Hatcher Pass
This was the first time I documented a bride getting ready in a motor home…I certainly hope it won’t be the last!I loved that Julia thought about the color of the autumn tundra and incorporated that into her palette of wedding colors, it all fit so beautifully! Alpenglow Lodge, Arctic ValleyHomemade Jam was the wedding favor, in varieties like: Rose Cardamon Rhubarb and Wildberry There is that red tundra that is so beautiful!
