Editorial Elopement Inspo in Anchorage, Alaska


This is quite a long blog but i promise it’s worth a look.

Being an editorial wedding photographer in Anchorage, Alaska, is a blend of artistic vision and environmental adaptation. It means capturing moments of love and commitment against a backdrop of basically anything because Alaska truly HAS IT ALLLL. I am always in love with whatever scenery that gets thrown at me, especially if the lighting is great. Editorial, romantic aesthetic is my jam when it comes to shooting in Anchorage, Alaska and The Hotel Captain Cook is such a great spot to capture just that. Italy & Will were the perfect models for editorial and luxe bridal portraits.

Growing up on Vogue and W magazine subscriptions, it’s no wonder that Editorial bridal portraits are some of my favorite things to capture. I love a good Vogue moment. I don’t care what anyone says about Anchorage, Alaska- this is the spot to get those shots.

What exactly is editorial wedding photography? Much like any art form, it defies strict categorization. Every photographer employing an editorial style brings their own unique artistic expression while remaining faithful to the essence of the approach. By opting for this genre, couples entrust the photographer to capture their day authentically, conceptually, and with a less polished aesthetic. If this resonates with you, then you’re heading in the right direction!
