Michelle & Aaron get Mauied

Michelle and Aaron were married on January 20th at Gannon’s Restaurant in Wailea, Maui. They contacted me on a brisk September day, wondering if I had an opening for an engagement session. I was booked, but I offered to get them in after another family the next evening. As their session was wrapping up I asked them if they already had a wedding photographer. They said they were getting married in Hawaii and would most likely use a photographer there. I responded with a wink and something like, “well just so you know, Tommy and I love shooting Hawaiian weddings, and are willing to travel.” About a week later, before seeing their photos they called and took me up on my offer! What a treat these two are, I am so glad they asked, and I’m thrilled we could accept!

Faye & Brian



Faye and Brian were married on October 10, 2015 at the Fox Hollow Chalet in South Anchorage. As most of their friends and family would agree…”It was about time!” All jokes aside, these two couldn’t be more perfect for each other! I’ve known Faye since she was in grade school and I met Brian in high school…both are exceptional human beings and together…well it’s magic.

They did their “first look” at McHugh Creek, it was a little breezy, but the colors were still in full bloom! Afterwards, we headed back to Fox Hall for the ceremony and reception!16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 27 28 29 30 88

Dad’s first look at his girl was priceless as well.32

The inside story:  Apparantly, Brian drops a lot of spendy items in the water, so his brother thought it was appropriate to safe guard the rings!64 66 67 68 69 70 658171 72 74

A White Wedding at Crow Creek Mine

Christine and Tony had the most perfect weather for their Crow Creek Mine wedding. It was a spectacular day to enjoy watching these two truly enjoy their day. I shared with Christine how rewarding it was to edit their photos. The bride and groom never stopped smiling, especially at each other.

Getting out and enjoying Alaska

Sometimes getting  out of your routine, and seeing/enjoying where you live is the best medicine for a heavy heart. That’s just what we did these last few days. Homer is special to us. Maybe it’s the sea air, the ocean life, the simplicity, the colors/textures…just to name a few.

Reger Family

The Regers allowed me to capture their family photos last fall, but because of the crazy wind and the fact that my auto focus was OFF and didn’t realize it, I told them I wanted to do a re-do this winter for an attempt at some clearer shots! Today we “hung out” for all of 13 minutes at Kincaid Park and it turned out great! This family is so gorgeous and fun! Enjoy!
