Olivia & Brice came in from Missouri for their wedding at the Shrine of St. Therese. Their day was filled with beauty and antics (for instance, chasing several small dogs out of traffic). We shared in laughter and fun and the beauty of a cloudless Juneau day. Here’s one image I had shared on Facebook so their family & friends at a distance could see how stunning this duo is.
I’m a lucky guy. I was asked to the be the photographer for the 26th Juneau Jazz & Classics festival. Today I was able to attend the Strings at the Shrine event with the Avalon Quartet. It was a beautiful day at the shrine, and wonderful to see so many smiling faces. The music (as always) was stellar, and with such a great location it’s hard not to be whisked away by the experience.
Anyhow, enough of my commentary. You’ll see these images on the Jazz & Classics Facebook page (go, quick, like them!) and I’m sure I’ll have more to share over the next couple of weeks.
For New Years Eve, I was asked to be a second photographer for a wedding by Penny of Becoming Images. I pretty much maintain that if Penny asks me to join in something, it will be 1) a blast, and 2) beautiful. This wedding was no different. 🙂
Meet the happy couple: Ann & Andrew Klausner, they’re a an amazing duo and know how to throw a party! I was especially impressed at the little details that were thought of in advance… For instance, at the full Catholic Mass, one of the wedding favors were mini LED flashlights, as the ceremony started before dark, and the sun had set by the time it ended.
Their reception was perfect. A packed room of excited folks with great food and good music (complete with dance-floor lights!)
Anyhow, for prints/downloads of these images, check with Penny, but for a quick preview, check below!
In mid-February, I heard that the Aurora’s were firing up again with another 4/10 rating, so I decided to head out to do some Northern Light hunting. It also happened to be a full moon. As I drove around Juneau, I eventually made it out to Aurora Harbor and, while I never found any Northern Lights, I did capture a few frames of the bright moonlight and the deep blue of the night. In this frame, we see the Shrine of St. Therese illuminated warmly in contrast of the frozen evening:
