Summer mini sessions in the aspens at Lockett Meadow- ARE MY FAVORITE. When the air is warm and the breeze is sweet. Just wanted to share some of my favorites.
Flagstaff Whimsical Wedding Day
This one was for the books!! Looking out over Rodgers Lake on a warm August afternoon, Christian + Sydney got married under the pine trees and with their best friends. This cabin is where Sydney grew up as a child with her sisters running in the forest and fields. It was so special for her to get married at the very place that formed her wild spirit.
They met in California at school. They are both down to earth, kind, genuine kind of people. But I also need to add FUN!!! Oh the joy of young love and exuberant personalities! This backyard Flagstaff wedding was a dream. From their sweet kisses to that sunset to the BEST wedding dance party I’ve been too. It was one of those!!!
Chic Rustic Styled Shoot
WOW this new Flagstaff venue is amazing in the pine trees and mountains!! This styled shoot was set up by the venue to show the new amazing space they have. They back up right into the forest to showcase the nature that is all around. The inside offers chic new colors and flooring that is a twist of modern and rustic vibes. All the vendors I worked with are amazing and so happy to work with them!!

Baby Announcement Photos in the mountains of Flagstaff
Just the cutest little family!! Dani and Todd grew up next to each other in Flagstaff, AZ. It wasn’t until High School when they fell in love and became official. Their friendship is deep and spans years. It was this year they decided to start a little family with first their goldendoodle and now a baby on the way.
Aspens, Snow, and Mountain Views
Each year, during my CRAZY wedding season, I some how find time to fit in Fall Mini Sessions with amazing Arizona families. Without fail, they are some of my most favorite sessions because of the laughter, challenge, and people I meet. This year I had over 15+ fall family sessions. Here are some of my favorite sessions.
October 6th // Snowbowl
While the aspen leaves were in full splendor and the mountain stood tall, Shelby and Gabriel united as one in nature. After meeting in high school, dating through college, it was time to get married! They both attended NAU for college and fell in love with Flagstaff’s organic living. Time is slower, people are friendlier, and the trees are bigger.
Flagstaff has a wonderful venue up at the mountain in the ski lodge. Half the year skiers from all over the state come to play in the white powered snow on Humphrey’s peaks while the other half of the year people hike up it in the hot summer sun. The wedding venue over looks the valley of rolling hills and mountains Arizona has. Shelby wanted the autumn leaves so bad she was willing to hike into the perfect spot for them! Thankfully she is so down to earth and easy going that this was no issue for her. Her and Gabriel spun in the fields with the yellow trees glowing.
Shelby is compassionate, sweet, and a little wild!
Gabriel is mysterious, kind hearted, and loving.
Together they create this beautiful friendship where love flourishes.
