anchorage alaska . engagement . katie & joel . part I

Oh corny or not I made two good friends traveling up to Anchorage to photograph Katie and Joel’s engagement session. Worth repeating myself, they made me feel as if I were part of their family coming to visit after not seeing each other in a long time, and really it wasn’t just one session  it was three days of traveling  in and around the stupefyingly beautiful place that is Alaska.  I am in love, infatuated, adore their images, so hard to choose what to share out of so many frames… here is the first try, with images from Hope, Alaska, Earthquake park and flat top mountain.    More to come…

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
