I find myself feeling right at home when life's going a thousand miles per hour. You know when there's like a million things to do or places to be all at once. For me, it creates this sense of clarity. It makes me look at life a little deeper. Focus more on the littlest of details.
It feels like this could really be the last week of fall here in Alaska. With a pretty heavy chance of snow in the forecast I’m so happy I could squeeze Laney and Owen in for their engagement session at Eklutna Lake in Chugiak, Alaska before the snowflakes started falling.
It’s always a joy getting to be apart of special moments like this one. Celebrating a momentous moment in someone else’s life and turning it into memories is one my favorite things about being a photographer. I get to capture and preserve your best memories for you to look back on for years to come. And I freaking thankful that you trust in me to tell your story one photo at a time.
Laney had reached out to me through instagram and told me of their exciting news. Just a few weeks prior Laney and Owen had gotten engaged. I was so stinking excited for them and help them plan an epic adventure for the two of them.
We all met up at Eklutna Lake in Chugiak, Alaska about an hour before the sunset for their engagement session. We spent the evening taking in mountain views while feeling the cool breeze on our skin.
I got to witness these two fall in love over again and over again. Between calm moments spent snuggling together on a log next to the water to moments spent running hand and hand through the woods. We even got some super cute photos of them two of them under a clear umbrella!
