Sarah & Wade were married at Sarah’s family home on July 20th, 2019 in Eagle River, Alaska. It was an absolutely breath taking day.
Sarah’s parent’s, Michelle and Steve Haynes, have worked countless hours in and on their yard/property. It was only natural that Sarah and Wayde get married there.
Tommy hung out with the guys at Wayde’s family home prior to meeting Sarah and I for their first look. He said it was so cool to see how close Wayde is with his family, and especially with his younger brother, Derryk.
This moment made me cry. As many hours as Michelle has spent beautifying her property and home, THIS moment showed just how much the hours we spend with our children in the daily routines, and in the highlighted moments are what truly matter.

“Just look at each other for a moment” ….Had to show off the XTRATUF boots, because….Steve. 🙂
Their dog BEAN made his debut throughout the day, such a cutie!
They literally tied the knot! Ecc 4:9 A cord of three strands is not easily broken.

I get asked a lot if I shoot Newborn Sessions, and I always respond with, “I can come to your home and shoot a “lifestyle session” for you. It will mean that you’re in the photos…” There are some incredible newborn photographers here in Anchorage, two of which I recommend always, AK Design Studio or Autumn Clarkson Photography .
Lifestyle Sessions are more organic in nature and capture your home, and the family dynamic as it is.
This is the gorgeous Shibe family. I met Emma via email first. I was searching for a real estate agent, and I wanted someone that was not pushy, and would listen and be honest and fair. When I read her bio, I knew she was the one! Her and her partner Michelle were God sends for us. They are The dynamic duo at Anchorage Home Real Estate if you’re in the market!
So back to family…the tables were turned for providing a personal service. I was honored to first capture some sweet baby belly shots for them before their precious girl arrived. Enjoy!And then, a few weeks later, their lives changed forever.
The last couple years have been super busy for me, and I’m very grateful! Seniors are a special part of my job, I just love them to pieces!
What a day! The weather couldn’t have been more perfect! I’ve never seen Gloryview Farm look more beautiful. So many special details were everywhere you looked. Catie was simply stunning, and Zeke looked so dapper in his new duds. Enjoy!!
