Welcome

August 24, 2022

If you’re traveling to Alaska with a surprise proposal in mind, Juneau, Alaska should be at the top of the list. Especially for those with adventurous hearts! With its proximity to picturesque mountains, blue flowing glaciers, and abundant wildlife, Juneau is the total package. The best time to visit Juneau is late spring and summer when the days are warm, and the wildflowers bloom.  It is also the best time to do whale watching (though the whale statue is up year round)! When Tyler reached out to me to plan his surprise proposal in Juneau, Alaska, he told me he used to come here as a kid and that he couldn’t think of a better place to propose. Tyler and Nikki were already planning a trip with his family and their best friends during the 4th of July, which was a perfect cover for his plan. However, only a select few knew what Tyler had up his sleeve!

anna and dylan's Alaska beach wedding

One thing I love about outdoor weddings and elopements in Alaska is you never quite know exactly how they will turn out. You can have ideas, plan, and schedules — but the thing about Alaska is that nature always has the beautiful final word. When I arrived at Dylan and Anna’s Alaska beach wedding venue, you could tell it was going to rain. The clouds were rolling and the air was thick. That did not deter anyone from enjoying the day. The air was as thick with humidity as it was with joy and excitement. It was a truly all Alaskan wedding.

intimate winter maternity session

For Asya’s snowy maternity session, I wanted to give her both those beautiful outdoor winter maternity photos as well as some tasteful and timeless intimate maternity photos. First, we rented the gorgeous Jorgensen House, one of our favorite BNBs in historic downtown Juneau Alaska. Then we added this amazing dress from Leah Maria Couture to the client closet, which fit her perfectly. For the cherry on top, we hired the very talented Devyn Reece to do her hair and makeup. After staying nice and warm inside the BNB, we travelled outdoors into the snow (note that if you book a session with me, we will inevitably end up in the wild). They pulled up their xtratuf boots, snuggled up to stay warm, and caught snowflakes on their tongues.
