After the storm rolled in, we hopped in the car and drove to the other side of the city. We out ran the rain and pulled off of the road again when the sunset light was just too unbelievable to pass up! We were headed to a different destination but when the rainbow appeared, we knew it was time to just shoot on the side of the road and make it happen!!! I have been telling Katie and Tyler ALL week that we were so blessed with the weather and light we had for their shoot!! It was amazing!!! It’s going to be really hard to come back to Virginia and look at our “Mountains” the same way! :) Virginia is stunning but Alaska has taken our breath away! I cannot WAIT for another reason to shoot there again! Anniversary session anyone!? :)
We have decided that because we love Alaska so much, this is going to be ALASKA WEEK on the blog! If the Discovery Channel can dedicate a FULL WEEK to SHARKS… we can dedicate a full week to ALASKA! Woohoo!!! So get excited because these aren’t the final images of our trip, this is really just the beginning!!
Tyler and Katie’s engagement session is by far one of the most exciting shoots I’ve done in a long time. I wasn’t just shooting in an epic location, I was photographing a friend who I have known since she was BORN! That’s right… we grew up together!! We’ve known Katie her whole life and it’s so exciting to be a part of this awesome season with her and Tyler!! I think it’s safe to say that this girl is SO HAPPY to be getting married! She’s beaming in these images!! The next time you see portraits of these two will be on their wedding post and we are SO excited for them!!! Enjoy PART TWO!!!
Seriously?! They’re such naturals!! Katie is walking down train tracks in wedges and is making it look easy!
Look at that gorgeous ring!!!! Gah!
Let the epic “stormy” light begin!!!…
Gosh I’m in love with this spot!!!
You two couldn’t be any cuter!
I’m tempted to photoshop Katie’s hair red and act like this is us so that I can have a canvas of it in our house!!!
Again… these were taken in a matter of 15ish minutes do to the impending storm! They’re so good!!
Katie you’re going to make the most beautiful bride!!!
And the wind started to pick up right before the heavens let loose!!
We out ran the rain and found a little pull off on the side of the road to shoot before the sun set… and Michael picked this bouquet… It’s like he’s done this a time or two! We were just letting Katie practice for October!!!:)
Her ring is Tacori! I’ve loved those rings for years! Such gorgeous settings!
And THIS is what we were working with!
We had a split second of the ideal light with a rainbow!! This will probably stay in my portfolio forever!!
Stay tuned for more of ALASKA WEEK!!!!
