Say “I do” at the Arboretum at Flagstaff

Mountain view wedding venue

If you want beautiful mountain views in Flagstaff for your wedding date, look no further than the Arboretum. Surrounded around pine trees, butterflies, and plants of all kinds, the arboretum has everything you could want in a mountain wedding venue. Sarah + Ryan were obsessed when they first went to the Arboretum and knew this was the place they would say I do.

After a WHOLE year of postponing their wedding date due to COVID, the couple finally got married July 3rd in Flagstaff on the most perfect of summer days. It was JUST the right temperature for July with some clouds in the sky and a monsoon rolling in. Their wildflower theme was perfect for a wedding at the Arboretum. It was one of those perfect wedding days. Nothing went wrong, family was so happy to see each other again after a long time away, and danced ALL NIGHT LONG!

Winter Photos in Sedona with the Freehan Family

Super fun winter family session in Flagstaff, Arizona! If you don’t know where to take photos but you want some done in the winter- Flagstaff is your place. It’s going to be VERY COLD some days and very warm others! It’s a hit or miss. You may have snowy mountains or bright clue skies. No matter what kind of winter day you get, it will be beautiful!

This is one of my favorite locations in Flagstaff because of the views of the mountain!!! ITS so amazing and beautiful. Even if you are visiting for the weekend in Sedona but want snow pictures, definitely come up to flagstaff.

Aspen Engagement Session in Flagstaff

Summer in Flagstaff is literally my favoriteeeee. There is nothing better. The aspens are full of green lush leaves swaying in the warm breeze. The grass is tall and the birds are chirping. I cannot rave enough about Flagstaff locations for engagement photos in the summer.

This location doesn’t have a name. It was just a fun spot I found out driving one day. Deep in the forest there are grooves and fields of tall grass and aspen just waiting to be enjoyed. Which is exactly what Luke + Maddi did.

These high school sweethearts are tying the knot after being together for YEARS all through highschool and college. They want a slow, connected, deep family life on a farm or ranch in Flagstaff to raise a family one day. They are gentle and so kind with each other. Very in love.

Intimate Elopement in Sedona

OHHH Cass + Sissi’s sweet sweet elopement in Sedona Red Rocks. It was a magical evening. After being together for 5 years they decided to elope on the DAY they met and went all in in their relationship. Surrounded around ONLY their two babies and best friends, Cass and Siggi exchanged their vows and promises to each other.

Sweet Summer Wedding in Phoenix, arizona

Phoenix backyard weddings are some of my favorite because you don’t have to worry about rushing around a venue. There is no time limit!! These type of weddings tend to be more focused on family and last way long into the night. Tanner and Alli’s wedding was no different. I had photographed her brothers wedding as well in their childhood backyard in 2018! This was one of the best weddings by far in 2020 for me. It was an odd year but never the less a year of love!

Tanner and Alli met years ago through friends and fell in love over time of focusing on their friendship. She is the sweeeeetest human and he is this gentle, kind, people oriented kind of man. They make such a good match together and their wedding day was nothing but beautiful and amazing!

Adventure to Merry Go Round

Sedona, Arizona’s top engagement session location

THIS spot…it’s one of my favorites in not only Arizona but Sedona specifically, but it’s not an easy place to get to. Many many photographers dream about shooting here but you have to have the right off roading vehicle to get up. For example: a Rubicon Jeep, truck with high suspension, or a Forerunner with big ass wheels!! Rental car companies won’t let you take their cars out there because the road is so bad that many get stuck or end up with a flat tire. I highly highly suggest going with a company like Pink Jeep Tours or Red Rock Rubicon. These vehicles are made to go on roads like this!

I’m so happy Anna and Selam wanted to go dance in the sun and explore the cliffs of the Red Rocks when they were visiting Arizona. I grew up with Anna in Ohio and was SO excited for when she told me they wanted to fly out for their engagement session. Now this is my fifth friend to come out to Arizona from the midwest for their photos. And I think it gives them a good excuse for a vacation and I get to see my people, so I’m not mad about it!!
