Last week I had the pleasure of making some outdoor family photos of the Young Family at a place dear to their hearts. Dayton and Kelsey Young were married at this amazing home in Alaska, nestled between Eagle River and the Chugach Mountain Range. I met them and their two beautiful girls as the rain came in spasms and plain, grey clouds rolled overhead. Despite the dreary weather we made the most of our time, enjoying a lovely summer evening in Alaska and creating images that tell a story of a people and a place.
Being from Alaska, having spent extensive time outside pursuing mountain activities, I imagined I would be a landscape photographer (which at times I am). However once I saw the magic of capturing the place and the people who make it special, I was instantly hooked on creating images that tell the story of who the people are, what they’re doing, and how the environment plays a role in that.
