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. hatcher-pass-and-alpenglow-wedding-photos-20

    OH.MY.WORD. I am SWOOOONING over here!!! This is just beyond words!!! Wow. Beautiful beautiful day, perfectly captured by you Erica! The large vertical image of the bride and groom in front of the lake made my heart flutter, I swear. Everything just fit so perfectly – the colors, flowers, outfits… and I love the bride’s shoes!!! I may have to look through these again just for fun. 🙂

    Eight years of traveling on your own mountain trails and traveling together to reach your dream…on the mountains you, Julia, said you fell in love in! These photos depict part of of your story/ stories! You found the true gold that still runs deep in those ancient rocks. Rock of Ages. Thanks for sharing. Jan Soloy
