Days like this day make the world seem like a beautiful place again. Often times we get so entrenched in the daily monotony that we sometimes need a gentle reminder of what really matters, and this experience speaks to that. Relic Photographic contacted us to collaborate on a wintry themed styled shoot, and of course we jumped at the chance. In the days following we learned it was going to be a surprise engagement and Steven had been waiting for the perfect moment to propose to Chantel. We worked with Lynn + Lou Paper Co. and had Steven compose a love letter to Chantel that reflected on their love and the road that brought them to this day. Mid shoot, he handed her the letter and it took just a moment for everything to sink in. This is the best kind of raw and rugged honesty that makes me love Alaska so dearly. And the icing on the cake, literally, was the wintry crystal cake with gold leaf details by GH Cakery. Long story short (because these pictures really don't need words), there were lots of good feelings all around and these two beautiful people are going to spend the rest of their lives together. It doesn't get any better than this. Congratulations to these two souls! We'd say you're off to a pretty good start.
