My name is Rose and I am your leader and expert on all things how to elope in Alaska.

I have explored all over Alaska, and experienced its  vast ecosystems and dramatic vistas. From the Arctic Tundra’s immense caribou herds to the Humpback whale breaches of the coastline, I have seen so much of what this state entails and know some killer locations for your elopement. If adventure is a priority, then Alaska is a must.

Alaska is a wild place, with so much to offer whether you’re an ocean loving person, at home in the mountains, or want to experience the wilderness deep in the interior. Photographing in these environments requires a preparedness and eagerness for flexibility, and I am always down for that adventure! The thing with eloping in Alaska, is that it really is endless with options for adventure. Check out this blog on how to elope in Seward! It’s an absolute favorite of mine.

As an adventure photographer, I focus on capturing intimate, authentic moments. With a background in travel and documentary photography, previously working in international non profit storytelling, my style speaks to those looking for the organic story but also down to have a really good time. I am the type of person that cherishes experiences over things, spicy thai food, craft beers and Lord of the Rings references. So if that sounds like a solid start, reach out and lets chat all things Alaska Elopement!

We had the most amazing experience with Rose! Our engagement shoot had to be postponed a few days due to weather, but she was flexible and able to help us pick a new location that wouldn’t be so impacted from the storm! We hiked around a bit and found the most beautiful overlooks! Rose is so talented, professional, and easy to work with! Turn around time was fast and we absolutely love the way our pictures turned out! We highly recommend Matlai photography and plan to use her for future photography needs as well!

Rose is an exceptional photographer. Her work speaks for itself. We had a small backyard wedding, and Rose elevated all the magic moments with her photos. She made the photo-taking process so relaxed and fun, it was a huge relief on the day of...then when we received the results we were blown away. Rose has a superb eye, she warmly added to the wedding day experience and made the entire planning to execution process super easy. If you are considering Rose as a photographer for any of your special occasion, the answer is yes. You won't regret it.

Taking a private water taxi to an island in Seward on your wedding day is an absolute must!

We took a water taxi out to this private inlet and had an afternoon of frolicking on the stoney beaches to ourselves. We packed in a picnic, champagne, cake and of course layers for this epic day in Alaska!
