About Our Team

This whole photobooth thingamajig started when Matt wanted to add a little fun to a wedding he was shooting. It turns out that he created a unique beautiful experience for that bride. It was easy, fun and the bride thought it was absolutely ‘gorg!’ Now, the Photo Emporium applies that same ‘gorg’ to its same weddings and brand experiences. No other photo company in Alaska can provide the custom experience like the Photo Emporium.

 Enjoyable customer experiences, quality photography and memorable experiences is what drives this business. We hope you have fun shopping at the Photo Emporium!
