So that’s two Alaska weddings in 2014 and a couple of enquiries for next year. I joked with my wife this week that we might have to move up there so I can become a full time Alaska Wedding Photographer, probably a bit premature… Whether or not I end up shooting more weddings up there or it ends up I never shoot a wedding there again, I am so grateful for the experiences Alaska and it’s people have offered up to me thus far. It goes without saying that it’s an awe inspiring part of the world which can leave you breathless with its natural beauty but the people really make it the great place that it is, like anywhere I guess.  It’s no wonder why visitors want to go back time and time again. It’s addictive..

I was last up in Anchorage for a the wedding of Jess and Dakota in the summer and so have been very lucky to have now experienced both sides of this wonderful place with Marilyn and Jonathan’s perfect winter wedding. Marilyn made the decision to get married in late November with the hope that we’d have snow topped trees and a true winter wonderland scene to work with. Right up until the day before the wedding the Alaskan weather wasn’t really working on our side and the seasons first real snowfall was yet to materialize. There was a dusting of snow when I arrived in to Anchorage in the early hours of the day before but nothing more than that. It was with much relief and excitement that we woke up to snow (plenty of it) and all that concerned us then was whether it might snow too much and prevent guests getting to the event safely. Thankfully the disruption was minimal, it eventually stopped snowing and we got the scene we wanted and the pictures Marilyn and Jonathan deserved. That was down in no small part to their willingness to head outside when it was snowing hard and freezing cold, to agree to my suggestions and to be up for an adventure – all with a smile on their faces. Without that the images below would be very different.

For my last wedding of the year this was a very special experience which I will remember for ever. I think Alaska Airlines can expect to see me again next year, whether there’s a wedding happening or not.
