Alaska Farm to Table Feast Palmer Alaska

Farm to Table is a concept of connecting people and the land.  The event honors those that hunt, gather, and grow the food as well as the artisans who prepare and serve the dinner.  Alaska suffers the same disconnection as the lower 48 when it comes to food.  Fewer people know where their food comes, rather they are more concerned about the speed of the meal.  Farm to Table brings a sense of slowness to the meal that fosters community and fellowship with those you can call friends upon parting.  

Bloomsbury Blooms (the most amazing floral shop in Alaska) hosts a Farm to Table Feast at their beautiful garden overlooking the Matanuska River once a year.  This year was filled with beautiful weather, amazing food, and delightful company.  From the beauty of the garden, the slow roasted pig, cheesy fondue, to the campfire overlooking the river the night couldn’t have gone better.

Alaska offers plenty of opportunity to partake in local food from farmers markets, community support agriculture, farm stands, gathering, hunting, and events like Farm to Table Feast.  I encourage you all to find ways to connect with your neighbors through food!

 Photography the Feels Natural

Ensuring her clients enjoy their wedding day is the most important element for Amanda. Thus Amanda is unobtrusive, capturing the day as it happens. Amanda does not work from a shot list, but instead reacts to events as they unfold.  This form of photography creates a visual story organic in nature.  Amanda has an eye for capturing real moments.  Her style of photography sets her apart from other wedding photographers.  

Throughout the day Amanda uses nature to help enhance her beautiful subjects.  Using natural light, shadows, and reflections Amanda ensures the bride and groom stand out.  Amanda is drawn to the magical light occurring at sunrise and sunset where she lets her creativity run free.  While Amanda prefers to work at venues that accompany her free spirit including backyards, farms, ranches, barns, wineries and secluded getaway, her talents allow her to work in most any setting.
