A capital ship

I had the distinct pleasure to photograph the wedding of Andrea and Mike out in Resurrection Bay. The platform … a 60-foot schooner called the Sailing Vessel Alaska Rover that is a replica of a blockade runner , owned by Sailing, Inc. based out of Seward. The seas and winds were ideal for sailing, and the ceremony and celebrations were replete with sailing traditions. Using a sword engraved with the couple’s name and their wedding date, the groom lopped off the heads of champagne bottles with abandon. Except, some of the more expensive bottles were resistant to the technique. The party was out in the Bay for about three hours before returning to harbor for dinner at Ray’s. The celebrations continue with a reception tomorrow. Great day for a wedding, with a great and lucky time to be the photographer tasked to capture this special ceremony.

Daily family portraits

As a portrait photographer, I prefer overcast days when scheduling a mid-day family portrait session. The same conditions are also preferred for flora photography. What happens when you combine the two is a fun-filled, successful session with a family that really knows how to have a great time. I had the pleasure of spending time with the Daily family while everyone was in town this last weekend out at Kincaid Park. My original vision for the session had to change because the city is tearing up the park for the new soccer fields. A beautiful patch of orange flowers and lupine along the side of the road provided the perfect backdrop.
