foggy hatcher pass elopement double exposure

I’ve had the pleasure of exploring Hatcher Pass a few times now, and it never feels like enough. Every single time I drive the winding road and see the hills my jaw hits the floor. It truly is an otherworldly place. When should you elope in Hatcher Pass? If you want access to the highest elevation for the most epic mountain shots, you’ll want to elope when the roads are open between July and September.

alaska mountaintop elopement

Picture this, pledging your love to your person on the top of a mountain in Alaska. You are engulfed by stunning views of the nearby peaks and the blue-green water in the channel below, sparkling in the sunshine. Birds chirp, and bees lazily buzz around the nearby wildflowers. The smell of earth and a faint hint of wildflowers wafting in the breeze. It is just the two of you at this moment together. What could be better? There are many beautiful locations to plan an elopement in and around Juneau. But for the stunning mountaintop views Greg and Pam were looking for, Mount Roberts was the ideal backdrop.

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.

On average though, the fireweeds bloom anytime between early July through mid-September
