On the Run

The last two weeks have been racing by and I need to blog for you. I have several posts brewing. Including The project, another wedding shoot, some great Alaska bonfire time, a new to me car, and wearing a bridesmaid dress.

I am processing Luke and Mayerly's wedding photos in between other events, as well. This is a Thank You card I worked up for them. I like how it turned out. What do you think?

Luke and Mayerly Fischer

Outdoor weddings in Alaska can be tricky.

There is always the obvious chance of rain. Then you can't forget the ever present mosquito. It could turn cold or be 80 degrees. So we all held our breath after a very soggy rehearsal on Friday night. Saturday threatened rain, and some liquid sunshine fell. But it was only brief showers and beautiful clouds. The day was awesome thanks to the work of Karla of Karla Delong Weddings, and the ever-willing Fischer clan that put up the giant blue and white striped tent.

Luke and Mayerly were so relaxed. My favorite part of the day was when I had them all to myself for portraits. It was fun to see their easy smiles and joyful laughter.

Here is a sneak peak of the day and the link for the slide show!

THE Project - Part 2

Here are a few long-awaited photos of the deck project that so many of you have been clambering to see. Just today the joists starting going up. I obviously need to catch up on this project for you. Enjoy... and yes, the wedding photos will be coming soon. It takes awhile to process that many images!

Website Update

It was 80 degrees here in Alaska today. And it was wonderful! The only thing that could have made it better would have been if I had spent the day camping or at least enjoying the outdoors with friends.

As you might have noticed, I am slowly transforming this blog into my photography blog. I tried to keep up with two blogs, but just couldn't make it happen. So this will be my main blog. I will attempt to include bits of my life and photography all wrapped together. Which, in reality, are quite hard to separate anyway.

I spent a little time working on my website today. It needed a little tweaking and a few added pages. Check out my changes.

Today's photo is in honor of the big wedding I have the honor of photographing this weekend. A little wedding inspiration.

Luke and Mayerly

Luke and Mayerly are two of the most kind-hearted, generous people I know. I watched them grow up and now have the honor of photographing their wedding next weekend. In anticipation of Luke and Mayerly's wedding, Marie (my second shooter) and I went out for a shoot with Luke and Mayerly. They took us to the home that Luke has been building for them. They looked great in the truly Alaskan surroundings and their future home.

Here is Luke and Mayerly's slideshow.

PS Awesome job, Marie! The top right one is Marie's and I LOVE it!

Newborn Shoot

A little over a week ago I had the honor of meeting little Jordan. She was kind enough to let me hold her and introduce myself before I pulled out my camera. She is a beautiful baby and I am so happy for my dear friends. Thanks for letting me photograph your sweet one!

Her slide show is here
