There is something so incredibly magical about Alaska winter weddings, especially around sunset! I love when the sun cats a gorgeous glow and glitters over the snow. It’s so breathtaking and makes me just stare in awe. You may witness me jumping around and squealing in excitement while taking your photos! Trust me, I will make it known that I’m excited about your photos in very obvious ways haha!! I will also be your own personal cheerleader and shower you with compliments. I truly believe that your images will be infinitely better when you’re comfortable and happy, so I’ve got you! If this sounds like your jam, let’s chat!

Miranda and Chris had such a gorgeous winter wedding in Alaska this February and I still can’t get over it. They had a lovely outdoor ceremony surrounded by all their loved ones. And it wasn’t terribly cold due to the sunny day we had which was nice. They decorated Government Peak Chalet so beautifully as well. The draped fabric and flowers everywhere made for the perfect setting.

If you are considering an Alaska winter wedding, I highly recommend it! It’s always so refreshing to run around outside for photos and then come indoors to a nice warm reception. It is sometimes a little chilly, but if you prepare accordingly and bring hand warmers, blankets, coats or furs and you’ll be all set! Also, as previously mentioned, the sunsets are incredible!

If you’re not too keen on a winter wedding, summer is just as magical and you can get a taste of winter by traveling to a glacier like this summer wedding at Majestic Valley Lodge. This summer wedding was so dreamy and warm and the glacier felt like 80 degrees with the sun beating down on us as we took some stunning photos. But if you’re up for an adventure then I highly recommend a winter wedding in Alaska!

Choosing to elope is both exhilarating and scary to some couples. Choosing to elope to Alaska is even more exhilarating!! More often than not the decision came because they started planning a large wedding and immediately decided against it.
