If you know us, then you know that we are always down for an adventure. Especially if it involves the mountains and forest. So, when Cassie & Sean reached out to us to fly to Alaska to capture their elopement, we were ecstatic!
We met these two beautiful people through one of Stephen’s childhood friends, and we felt like we’ve known them for a lifetime. These two are just such warm & welcoming people, and we got the chance to hangout with them for the weekend following up to their wedding! They showed us some of the best parts around Anchorage, Alaska, took us on hikes, and let us join their friends and family for some beers around the bonfire.
Their elopement was sweet & simple, which we loved because they focused their energy more towards their love for each other and the people in their lives (which is what weddings are all about!)
If any of you have been to Alaska, then you probably are aware of how the weather is totally unpredictable there! The first two days were absolutely gorgeous, sunny skies & warm weather. Then of course, come time for the wedding it was raining & cold! This was way out of our comfort zone since we are normally used to photographing our couples during sunset but, we didn’t let that stop us from getting some beautiful photos of these two, and they had the best attitudes although the weather wasn’t ideal. We loved that they had such a carefree spirit throughout the entire day, no matter what happened (which was such a relief!)
Also, we seriously loved that she wore her boots to the wedding (these are definitely a staple in any Alaskan wardrobe!) and the crazy wind & rain made for some pretty candid, yet awesome portraits!
Here are some highlights from Cassie & Sean’s elopement, enjoy!
