Ralph and AKAP will join you for your helicopter tour, your private charter boat from Tide Water Tours, a Walk on the Wild Side with the animals at the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation center, ice climbing at Spencer Glacier, or a fun family hike here in the Chugach National Forest.  The possibilities are limitless when you add helicopters and chartered boats! Contact us, talk to us about what you’re looking for, and we will help you plan the adventure of a lifetime.

    Maybe your family is like mine: my dad is mostly missing from our family photo albums because he was always the one behind the camera. If you are here to experience Alaska’s beauty and share special adventures with your family and friends, then now is the time!  Go for it, enjoy yourself, and don’t worry about taking the pictures.  Alaska is at its best, it is on the shelf and ready for you!

Wedding Photography Package

  • The best moments of the entire special day will be captured for you by expert wedding photographer Ralph Kristopher.  He will begin with some candid images as you get ready, capturing the “behind the scenes” experience and your transformation. You and your betrothed meet for a special “first look” photo shoot.  The two of you have a few quality moments together, then we will head to Alyeska’s private heli-pad.  For the next hour and a half, we fly around the Chugach mountains, landing somewhere especially scenic for a couple’s portrait shoot.  Upon return we will take pictures with your wedding party. You will have some personal prep time here to get ready for your ceremony.  During this time Ralph will be photographing your venue, the decorations, and your guests as they arrive.  The moment of the ceremony happens however you wish, and directly afterward we will capture formal family photos.   Few photographers are more fun and skilled at capturing the spontaneous magic of a reception as Ralph.  Have fun and enjoy yourself!  Whenever the wedding fun comes to a close or photos are no longer needed, we pack it up and start editing. Editing artful print-ready images for an entire wedding indeed takes some time, but we will get you a few pics for your social media right away.Wedding Package 1: $5285-All day coverage of the wedding-Helicopter portrait shoot

    Ralph: “Photography is a performance art.  The camera and I are one, together we interact with your groups large and small, your friends and guests.  The results are beautiful candid portraits, and artful images that bring the pictures to life with the light of the people and the moments beaming from within them.”

    -All day coverage of the wedding

    -2 hour portrait session with the couple, where we will take the Alyeska tram up the mountain, drive around Girdwood, and capture you in the stunning beauty that is right here.  We have waterfalls, ocean, mountains and rainforests.  All Ralph’s wedding packages request two hours set aside for portraits so we can get you to a few choice locations and enjoy the time spent while we capture striking and fun images of you.  The best experience for everyone creates much better images!
