Gorgeous Wedding Photos Taken at an Ice Blue Alaskan Glacial Pool

After one-of-a-kind wedding wildfire snapshots, spectacular photos of a bride and groom in an ice cave, and Jurassic Park-inspired nuptial photos featuring Jeff Goldblum, the latest wedding photos to go viral are these vibrant shots by Anchorage-based photographer Josh Martinez, who traveled by helicopter to Alaska's Knik Glacier with an adventurous bride and groom for one unforgettable portrait session.

During the photo shoot, the couple frolicked through lush meadows set against a backdrop of snowy mountains, explored icy fields, and even waded knee-deep into a glacial pool of stunningly blue water–ruining the wedding gown in the process. For such incredible photos, we think it may have been worth it!

Martinez, who works for Chugach Peaks Photography, shared with PetaPixel, “The Bride & 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.”
