As Flagstaff family photographers, we love scouting out new locations, and sometimes, that involves finding locations that are sometimes overlooked.  This session, of the fun Naleski family, was at a neighborhood park, the Jim Cullen Memorial Park, locally known as the Tree Park, located in Coconino Estates.  We love using locations that are meaningful to families and being that the Naleski’s come to this park regurally, we knew these photos would always be special to them.

We loved that they brought their bikes, and how they embraced that little Grace had a cast from being an adventerous kid.  There’s always a lot of laughs doing their photos and this session was no exception.  It’s hard to believe that our first family session with the Naleski’s was when little Grace was an infant and Georgia was a sweet toddler.  Boy, does time fly!

Julia and Bryan were married at Flagstaff Ranch Golf Club in Flagstaff, AZ on a picture perfect day.  Julia’s gown was perfection, we loved the mermaid fit and the piles and piles of ruffles.  Her vintage inspired updo went beautifully with it and those orange shoes were amazing!  Bryan and his groomsmen looked very daper in their suits, and in case you’re wondering, they are all huge Star Wars fans.  We laughed until we cried when they all busted out their own light sabers.

Afte the ceremony, we got a golf cart and explored some of the Golf course.  The cinder hills are some of our favorite backdrops there, and of course the high grasses and expansive views of the golf course and the San Francisco Peaks!   Being Flagstaff Wedding Photographers is pretty amazing.  Congrats Julia and Bryan!  Thank you for having us at your wedding!

Sometimes it’s sureal living so close to Sedona.  In 21 short miles from downtown Flagstaff, we can be looking at scenery that every time, blows me away.  If you’ve ever had the chance to visit there, you know what I’m talking about.  And if not, get it on your bucket list.

One of the cool things about Sedona is Oak Creek.  In Flagstaff, we don’t have a lot of water, so it’s a real treat to have a running creek so close to home.  It’s nice to escape there during our warmer months, and be able to stick our toes into the clear, pristine water or fly fish the native trout.  As Sedona Wedding Photographers, Red Rock Crossing is one of our favorite places to shoot.  The grounds are diverse, with trees, tall grasses, and of course the creek.  Depending on the season, the water could be high or low making for unique photos every time.  But, one of the most amazing things, in my opinion, is the breathtaking overlook on the way to Red Rock Crossing.  It’s one that many people drive by all the time with out stopping, and definitely off the beaten path.  If you ever find your way in Sedona, plan on a sunset stop here.

One of our favorite places to photograph familes in Flagstaff is at Aspen Corner.  The gorgeous place is just off Snowbowl Road on your way to the ski hill, and looks great in any season.  And summer, well, summer is our favorite three months in Flagstaff when the lupines and sunflowers really pop in photographs.  Being a Flagstaff family photographer really is fun, especially when your backdrops are so gorgeous.

We’ve loved getting to know the Martinez family over the years, and especially watching this little munchkin, Harper, grow.  She loved being outside and playing in the outdoors.  We’ve found that kids really relax when their outside and it’s a great time to plan for family photos.  Thanks for trusting us with your memories!  Can’t wait to see you again!

We do almost all our newborn sessions in our downtown studio and we love it when we get to meet new families and watch them grow.  As Flagstaff newborn photographers, it’s such a blessing.  Little Paige was welcomed by her family this January and we were so delighted to be able to meet her!  This little angel slept through most of our session, and was such a gracious model for us.  We loved getting to know her family and look forward to watching her grow up!  Welcome little one!

While living in North Georgia, Jeanna and Bryan became friends through Jeanna’s brother, Evan, and ultimately fell in love. They were engaged within three years and married nine months later.  During their friendship and ultimately, courtship, the couple would vacation in a beautiful gem of Florida, Apalachicola and nearby St. George Island.  Because of their affinity for that piece of the world, they chose to have their ceremony and reception in Apalachicola, Florida.

Jeanna relied on the beauty of the natural surrounding for inspiration for her decor of her classic, southern wedding.  “The decor was more simple as we had to plan it and bring our decorations 400 miles for the wedding,” says Jeanna. The couple chose a pastel color palette with peach and pale blue as their wedding colors. Jeanna and Bryan also wanted to tie the ceremony and reception locations together with their decor. “It drew on a vintage theme, which I love, and went nicely with the gazebo and the Owl Cafe’s vintage feel,” says Jeanna. One vintage-inspired element at their wedding was a small orange suitcase for “love notes” written by guests. Their ceremony location and floral arrangements also held a special place in the bride’s heart. She had always considered the gazebo in Apalachicola’s historic Lafayette Park to be a special place and wanted pale blue hydrangeas to reflect the flowers outside her childhood home.

Jeanna’s dress was a gorgeous lace mermaid gown which looked like it had been made for her.  She definitely was a vision of beauty.  However, the couples two boxer dogs, Rosco and Boss, stole the show when they started barking during the vows.  Their wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd as they exchanged vows and had their first kiss.  It was a sweet moment.

After the ceremony we explored the area around the gazebo and pier and then headed over to where the boats were docked for more photos.  It was a blast being a Florida wedding photographer!  I hope to get back there soon.  It was an enchanting southern evening.  Congrats Jeanna and Bryan!
