August 6, 2015 Ashley and Patrick wanted "casual and stress free" for their wedding day.

"The Secret Rock Spot", a very private wedding venue, was reached via a 10 minute magical forest walk. Time stretched to a half hour, as Elise stopped to shoot bridal photos on the way out.

July 9, 2014 Amidst Wild Iris and Dyea wildflowers, this couple had a beautiful photo shoot following a coastal wedding ceremony and reception.
