Kristin and Jairo are the sweetest. And their June wedding was like a dream--it was a beautiful day down in Girdwood with gorgeous light streaming into "Our Lady of the Snows" chapel. Cottonwood seeds floating through the air on a slight breeze while we rode the tram up top to the roundhouse to do some portraits (see slide show!). That same solstice light reflected off Mt. Alyeska and into the reception hall at Hotel Alyeska, setting a beautiful rim light on Kristin and Jairo as they danced. I reluctantly left the wedding that evening as my coverage ended. Folks were still on the dance floor, enjoying the live band, the sun still reflecting off the mountain.

Enjoy the images! And please scroll down to the bottom and watch the slide show!

Maricel & Wes-engaged!

I first met Maricel when she was a bridesmaid at Emily & Elliott's wedding in June of 09 (see blog posting: http://ngwphotography.blogspot.com/2009/06/emily-elliott.html).

She was all smiles this past week when we met up for engagement photos (after her and fiancee Wes and I were able to make our busy schedules somehow align) despite enduring heavy fire from mosquitoes at Earthquake Park. We quickly switched locales and headed down to Point Woronzof to the beach where, previously unbeknownst to me, they had had their first date--watching planes! From there we wanted something urban in the background. Train tracks ended up being a perfect fit since Wes likes all things trains. Here are portraits from the day--come back in August for images from their wedding!
