Girdwood Wedding: Stephanie and Andrew at the Hotel Alyeska

Stephanie and Andrew were married at Alyeska Resort with a big group of family and friends in attendance – this was quite the party! Before it all started, we met up for some getting ready photos and a little journey around Girdwood for some scenic photos. R&R Productions kept the grooves going all night long and we got some excellent dancing photos 🙂 Check out all the goods below!

Girdwood Wedding: Karin & Daniel at the Hotel Alyeska

On Saturday I was in Girdwood with Mr. Ralph Kristopher to shoot Karin & Daniel’s wedding at the Hotel Alyeska. There was a good crew of wedding party and we had a lot of time to get the goods. Lots of getting ready photos and a lot of the bride/groom and wedding party stuff before. We even went to the top of the mountain, where to everyone’s suprise and amazement, Karin took off her shoes and went barefoot across the snow as it provided her better traction. I am pretty sure that’s a first for me – and something I don’t think I’d want to do for long, but she had no complaints and stood strong the whole time we were up there. The ceremony was by the pond, followed by a reception in the Khiltna Court.

Girdwood Wedding: Jamie & Patrick at Our Lady of the Snows and Alyeska Resort

On Saturday I was at Our Lady of the Snows Chapel and the Alyeska Resort in Girdwood for Jamie and Patrick’s wedding. These guys were all smiles, all day, so it made it pretty easy to capture good moments and fun times. Before the ceremony I hung out with the bridesmaids and groomsmen while they got ready, then we did a trip to the top of the mountain and had some great blue skies to work with. It was a bit of de-ja-vu for me – exactly 5 years to the day, March 17 2007, I was at Alyeska for Katie and Clint’s wedding and the weather was exactly the same; Relatively warm, and bluebird.. After the top of the mountain session we headed to the Chapel for the ceremony and family pics, then back to the hotel for the reception. It was a great day and we got a lot of fun photos!

Girdwood Wedding: Susan & Bill at Alyeska Resort

Man! What a great winter wedding we had on saturday.. some of the prettiest and most epic lighting I’ve ever seen up on top of the mountain. Yes, there we fog and clouds down below, but being on top for just a little bit was so worth it! Susan was a little unsure if going up would be a good idea, because it was so cold – but we talker her into it and now she’s really glad we did! Got one of my all-time coolest shots with the fog and the sunset and the colors.. First we started off at the hair salon in Girdwood for getting ready photos, then went over to the hotel and tracked down Bill, who was quietly getting ready and getting into the wedding-zone with his ipod. The ceremony was in the Khiltna Ballroom on the dance floor, which I hadn’t seen before, but went really well. Family photos followed along with a lot of pretty rowdy dancing and a series of heart-felt toasts and thoughts from friends and family. Here’s a nice sampling of some of the photos…

Girdwood Wedding: Svetlana & Phillip at Alyeska Resort

On Sunday Josh and I teamed up to shoot Svetlana and Phillips wedding at Alyeska Resort. The ceremony was in the Columbia Ballroom, followed by the reception in the Kahiltna Ballroom. After the ceremony we bolted to the top to capture the last of the fading dayight. We made it just in time to get some beautiful blues and pinks. I think Svetlana and Phillip were pretty cold, and honestly we were too.. so we limited our outdoor time and did a few shots in the cafeteria and by the tram before heading back down to the reception. At the reception, they had a number of fun games to play – including dressing Phillip up like a little man and making him do a bunch of silly stuff. He played the part well and was a good sport.
