From the Photographer… While living in Alaska, I was struck by how much the mountains resemble the Scottish Highlands. An Anchorage event coordinator and I worked together to bring the Highlands to the frontier. We collaborated with a local Scottish club to bring a professional bagpiper to an elopement inspiration, and to outfit our models with formal kilts. Florals were loose, lush, and reflective of the autumn hues in Alaska. Together, we evoked the essence of a romantic elopement in Scotland, and showcased an overlooked – yet utterly Alaskan- nuptials location.
