Harding Lake Alaska Wedding | Kyla + Ricky

As most of you already know, I recently had the pleasure to travel to ALASKA to photograph Kyla and Ricky’s wedding alongside my BFF (Katie Landers). It was incredible!  Having only been to Alaska one other time in my life I had imagined a wedding at the base of majestic snowy mountain peaks with bears and caribou roaming nearby.  Haha!  That is pretty far from what the wedding actually was.  Those who say everything is bigger in Texas obviously haven’t been to Alaska. ALASKA is HUGE and beautiful at every bend in the road (all 3 of them), lol.  It was beautiful!  All week long while exploring I was in Photographer heaven!  While a migraine hindered my willingness to get out and shoot, I already have plans to return and photograph all the incredible locations on my bucket list.  

Anyway, this blog post isn’t about me - I’ll save that one for another day.  This is about Kyla and Ricky’s special moments… 

The two were wed at Camp Bingle on Harding Lake, Alaska which is near Fairbanks for those who need a formal location to pinpoint.  Tucked back into the birch trees they prepared for the wedding day in the local cabins and said I do along the waters edge.  Every single moment of the day went off without a hitch. All sorts of weather changes rolled in and out throughout the day providing all sorts of temperatures and lighting changes. Kyla and Ricky looked incredible and it was a real joy getting to know their wonderful family and friends.

Katie and I wish you all the best on this new journey together!

Photos speak louder than words so please check out the images from their wedding day and leave them some love!
