Thom & Michaela | Day After Portrait Session in Juneau, Alaska

Last November, Thom and Michaela were wed on a rare day of sun in Juneau, Alaska. Their wedding was beautiful, intimate, and witnessed by only their closest family and friends. (Check out their wedding day here.) When it is winter in this corner of the world, daylight hours are fleeting and dusk happens around 3:30pm. Because our time on their wedding day was quite limited, we met up with Thom and Michaela the following afternoon for a little outdoor adventure and second round of portraits. 

Boy Scout Beach has long been one of Michaela's favorite places, so it seemed only natural that we venture out there to capture images of their first day as husband and wife. It was well below freezing out, but you would never know it (aside from some goosebumps!) because of the way they danced and smiled together the entire time.

 

“It was rather beautiful: the way he put her insecurities to sleep. The way he dove into her eyes and starved all the fears and tasted all the dreams she kept coiled beneath her bones.”
