images for wild hearts.


Hello Beautiful!

My name is Amber and I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Alaska. I am so excited you are here on my website and honored to share a little about how I work. I want to give the people I photograph small moments in time that say in a single second everything that’s important. That we were here, that we were together. And that it mattered. This is my primary focus when photographing couples and families from Anchorage or anywhere in the world.

I don't want to miss a thing and find myself lured to the smaller moments. The ones that might be missed by those not on a treasure hunt with their camera. On your wedding day, I’ll photograph all the details you have both spent so long choosing, the guests you have invited, and the natural, spontaneous moments that you’ll enjoy looking back on for years to come.

Whether we head out to a glacier or use the available backdrop at your Alaska wedding venue, I’ll produce a selection of portraits that tell an authentic story and celebrate every detail. Will love come for you, as it did for me? Find you, wreck you, save you, change you?
