Photo Friday: Married on an Alaskan Glacier

Photographer Josh Martinez took wedding pictures for a brave and adventurous couple with glaciers and pools of icy blue water in the background. For the shoot, they took a helicopter to Alaska’s Knik Glaciers, which is one of the largest in Southcentral Alaska. The wedding photos with ice, silt and glaciers give the photos dreamy and surreal look.
