was one thing we had been told to do in Alaska by my parents. They had recently visited Alaska and they advised us to try our best to take a tour of Denali by plane!! So we did! Andrew drove us to Talkeetna and we signed up for a plane ride!! In a tiny little plane! It actually wasn’t THAT small. It could have been much smaller! … But when you’re used to commercial sized planes, this was a whole other world!! It was amazing! The views were incredible and even though McKinley was covered with a cloud, it was still SO worth the small fortune that it cost. Some experiences are worth an extra splurge and we’re really thankful that we decided to make this happen!!
After our flight, we drove through Hatchers Pass and it was stunning!! I’m surprised we ever made it home with all of the stops we made for pictures! (Which I’m very thankful for!) We have so many great memories from this day but I have to say that tomorrow’s “Out-takes” post will show you some hilarious behind the scenes shots of this afternoon adventure!
We went back to Kayti and Andrew’s house each night they Kayti fed us. How did we get so lucky?! The Beales were so good to us and we’re so thankful for all that they did to make sure we felt welcomed. No one goes hungry around Kayti Beale!!! On Saturday, we left Anchorage and headed towards the Prince William Sound. Andrew is a commercial fisherman and he offered to take us out on the boat!! We drove through the one way tunnel to get through to Whittier and we climbed aboard! We were excited about our boat tour… but we had NO idea what was going to be in store for us!! You’ll just have to keep reading to find out what happened!
Enjoy the second to last ALASKA WEEK blog post!!!!!!We did see McKinley from a distance!! See that white peak?! Quick lunch…. at a sketchy pirate ship? “Pizza Blunts”…. yummy! Here we go!!!! Gah! How beautiful?! I could have stared at these all day!!
It still feels surreal to tell people about what we do for a living. We photograph weddings and we teach other people how to photograph weddings. It’s quite literally a dream job for a creative like myself who loves people! Every month when we do these Student Spotlights, I’m reminded all over again how much of a privilege it is to be a part of these photographer’s lives and play a small role in their stories.
This is Rhett’s third month blog post and I’m actually impressed that it’s only 9 days late!! I’m sure I’ll fall behind this year but as of right now, I’m doing ok and I’m actually thankful for the monthly-post commitment to keep me on top of editing our family pics each month!! While people say “the days are long but the years are short”…. I would say EVERYTHING feels short right now!
If you’re a photographer that despises Off-Camera-Flash (OCF), this blog post is for you! Ugh. I feel you. I used to hate it too… and it honestly still isn’t my favorite but it’s necessary in order to rise in your professionalism on wedding days after dark!! Off camera flash seems intimidating when you’re trying it for the first time.
This is such a fun post for me to share because it’s what I consider my “hobby”! Sure, it’s still photo-related so maybe it’s not a true hobby for me since my career is consumed in the photography world… but it is most definitely what I love to do for fun!
This is the biggest complaint we’re hearing about the R6!! Photographers who are moving from the CANON MARK III camera body and switching to the new Canon R6 camera body are lost when it comes to perfecting their edits to the style they are used to.
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
