Austin + Rachael

Flagstaff, Arizona- Viola’s Flower Garden

While you read this and look through the photographs I want you to have a Disney princess song playing gently in your head. All will make sense ūüôā

I had the honor of photographing my beautiful friends wedding at a new located Viola’s Flower Garden. I get so excited when more and more venues pop up all over Flagstaff for weddings. This one is a gem!!! No need for decorations, the flowers say it all. Rachael, sweet woman she is, got ready there at the gardens all the while listening to a Disney soundtrack. You won’t find a woman more like Cinderella anywhere! Bubbly, kind, and giggly- Rachael is our Cinderella. This wedding was very magical. I felt like at any moment I could see little birds tweeting here and there trying to help get our Cinderella ready for her big day. That it was, a big day filled with sugar, laughter, and dancing. I have NEVER photographed a man more enthusiastic as his bride walked down the isle. I was taken away by the emotion of it all. Rachael and Austin’s love feels like it is out of a fairytale!! The way he gazes at her, dances with her, and kisses her hand gently feels like prince charming. With their closest family and friends, the two became one amidst the flowers and birds.

 

Paige + Justin // Phoenix, AZ

Paige + Justin

Schnepf Farms- Queen Creek

JUNE 3rd 2017

Love is wildly captivating isn’t it? I find it so interesting how someone can be a normal bystander/a stranger and turn into this person you will forever choose to be their team mate for. What once was unknown is now fully known and cherished. Paige and Justin are not just in love but they are each others teammates. The way Justin looks at her when I get dinner or drinks with the both of them, is this gentle look of compassion mixed with loyalty. Their wedding day was SO FREAKING FUN. It was hot for sure, Phoenix in June, but it was truly perfect. They danced, ate good food, and laughed a WHOLE lot the entire day. Paige is this cute little spunky,sassy, sweet woman. She would grab Justin’s butt and make sure I got a photo of it. While Justin is SO SO SO kind, endearing, and fun. He would grab her face this sweet way and pull her in to let her know how important she is to him. I wish you all could be at this wedding that was incredibly too much to handle!

Charolette + Ben // Flagstaff, AZ

BEN + CHARLOTTE

Flagstaff, Arizona

Oh the summers in Flagstaff, they are magical. The sun is hot here at 7,000 ft of elevation, everyone goes out to those restaurants where you can sit outside to eat, and tourists from all over arizona come to cool off next to the mountain. Thankfully, right around now, we start to get monsoons!!! Everyday it will pour like crazy then clear up to sunny skies again. Luckily last night for Ben and Charlotte’s engagement session caught our time in between rain sessions.

The aspens are so freaking beautiful this time of year. The way the sun comes through the trees at just the right time, you get that summer vibe. Ben and Charlotte met years ago at on a  Young Life mission trip to Mexico. He is a strong, constant, loyal kind of guy and Charlotte is goofy, laughy, and so very beautiful. I see how their opposite qualities balance each other out. But are they so cute together!!! I feel like I am grinning the whole I’m with them. Their wedding is just 39 days away in August!
