I don’t think I had ever posted wedding photos here until yesterday when one Ohio couple’s Icelandic shots were so stunning that I had no choice but to share them with you. That, and the fact that the newlyweds had decided to sacrifice having their friends around them on their special day, so that they could fly to Iceland and collect the wedding images of their dreams. I hope it was worth it, although many on commenters Reddit don’t think it was.
In any case, today I find myself hugely impressed by another set of wedding images taken in the far north — this time in Alaska. These stunning images were taken by photographer Chris Beck of his friends Torsten and Sarah at the Mendenhall Glacier ice cave near Juneau, right after their wedding nuptials.
To get there, the group had to hike through rugged terrain for more than two hours, then kayak through icy water and finally climb a mountain. I think there should be no doubt that it was well worth the effort. Chris Beck wrote on Facebook:
Taking a picture requires more then pressing a button. It’s about telling a story. Sarah and Torsten have been good friends over the years, and their relationship is all about Juneau. As avid outdoors people, what could be more symbolic then a photo shoot of a bride in an ice cave?
I can’t think of many alternatives. Enjoy! (Scroll down for a video of the cave.)
And here is a video of the awesome cave:
