When my best friend moved to Alaska, I immediately began dreaming of the day that I’d get to visit her and explore such a cool place. And due to a short break in wedding season this July, I was able to take the time to travel. Fortunately it happened to be the BEST time I could’ve gone… The weather was a dream — 70’s & sunny with a cool breeze — and the “golden hour” that photographers swoon over lasts for HOURS in Alaska in the summertime. My trip consisted of a flight tour around Anchorage, feeding reindeer, paddle boarding, shooting Tannerite, getting stuck in the wet silt from a glacier, and taking photos of the breathtaking scenery.
Meredith didn’t expect to meet the man of her dreams soon after moving to Alaska, but God had big plans for her & Griff. It was the cherry on top of my trip getting to photograph these two and take advantage of such a gorgeous backdrop, because everyone knows I LOVE photographing couples. ;) The first set of photos below were unplanned during a hike at sunset because I just couldn’t resist the golden light. The second set were when I had officially asked if I could photograph Meredith with her boyfriend… I had so much fun exploring different locations and capturing their happiness!
