The Banse Wedding!

This wedding was such a joy to capture. Emily and Sam have a special love and respect for each other. You get the feeling they are two old souls that have journeyed years together already when you are around them. Once we met their parents and friends, it verified the notion that family and friends holding a couple up is such a gift, and a necessity.

Our 3rd Annual Homer, AK trip

This was our 3rd annual trip to Homer, Alaska with the kiddos, and Melman, our West Highland Terrier.

This is the view from the Highliner House. The sandhill cranes love to cruise around the property every morning.

I have a ‘thing’ for rocks. My daddy was a geologist…kinda runs in the blood I guess. 🙂

I just can’t get over how fast the kids grow up. Our daughter Kya will be a teenager in a couple months.

We had the honor of meeting Mr. Clem Tillion. He was jovial, kind, and so full of wisdom. “I could never walk next to my wife of 53 years without touching her” he said. What a precious man. Here is more history about Halibut Cove: http://www.halibut-cove-alaska.com/halibut-cove-history.htm

Kimberly and Brian

Kimberly and Brian will get married in Girdwood, Alaska in the fall, so what better place to take their engagement photos than Winner Creek trail. It was a beautiful morning and Kim’s colors and their love for nature made the session all the more FUN!
