Alaska Destination Wedding, Knik Glacier

Black and white photo through a helicopter windowLevi and Katrina are proof that you don’t have to live outside the state to have an Alaska Destination Wedding! These two traveled up from Point Alsworth to celebrate their love at the base of the Knik Glacier. It was a beautiful day perfect for flying out and going on an adventure, so we did just that. The couple, along with their closest family flew out to the Picnic Strip along the Knik Glacier.  After the ceremony, we flew from the Picnic Strip and up to Grasshopper Ridge for a beautiful view of the glacier. Wanna know something cool? Lauren Daigle was in that very spot a few months prior to record a music video for Rescue. The sweeping vistas are breathtaking! Scroll to the bottom to see a behind the scenes of our adventure that day.

“Donna is incredible. As a fellow photographer, picking the person who was responsible for the memories of our wedding day was nerve-wracking. But her portfolio and personality put her at the top of my list very quickly, and choosing her was easy after some quick messages. She is incredibly sweet and personable, captures the right moments and emotions, and is super creative. She fit right into our small family wedding and was totally game for going on an adventure in a helicopter!! 😊😃 She had our sneak peeks up within a week and had the full gallery to us incredibly fast (Since I am also a photographer I know how hard it is to finish editing galleries, and this lady is a speed demon). I would have Donna be our photographer again in a heartbeat!!!” -Katrina
