Couple Flies To Alaska To Take Stunning Wedding Photos On Top Of A Glacier

Photographer Josh Martinez, flew by helicopter to Alaska’s Knik Glacier, which is over 25 miles long and 5 miles wide, making it one of the largest in Southcentral Alaska.

These images are part of a series of wedding photos taken of an adventurous bride and groom on a day which they are unlikely to ever forget.

The couple made the wise decision to give Martinez full creative control and he took full advantage of it.

Martinez, who works for Chugach Peaks Photography, told Petapixel:

"The bride and groom gave me full creative freedom and in this case, that meant wading knee-deep into an icy glacial pool for Alaska’s ultimate trash-the-dress session! To access this incredible location, we explored the surface of the glacier by helicopter and located several pools of Windex-blue water that fit my vision perfectly."

"Our pilot landed on the glacier, and after fitting some safety gear we headed out to explore this epic world of ice, silt and water. The photo opportunities were endless, and I cannot wait to head back to the glacier for another shoot."
