We had the pleasure of photographing Aimee for her high school senior portraits. Aimee will be graduating from FALA, Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy, in the spring and is planning on attending Arizona State University or University of Southern California. Aimee is not only a beautiful young lady but is also very driven. During her session I learned how excited she is for college and to focus on her dream of being a sports broadcaster. We can’t be more excited for her and look forward to seeing where life takes Aimee! Congratulations!!
Lauren and Aaron had a beautiful fall wedding at the Flagstaff Nordic Center. This couple and their families are so sweet and down to earth, they made the entire day a dream. Lauren had a fantastic custom gown designed and made by Anne Thomas Couture. The wedding was an afternoon event which allowed us to use the beautiful early evening glow for Lauren and Aaron’s couple photos. The couple and guests had a fantastic dinner and danced to a their favorite blue grass band from New Mexico. Congratulations to Lauren and Aaron!
Katelyn and Adam were married a perfect October day at the Mormon Lake Lodge. The leaves of the scrub oaks were turning a perfect golden hue and the skies were blue. Katelyn was a gorgeous bride. She choose a beautiful lace gown which suited her vintage and classic look. We loved the birdcage veil and peacock feather embellishments in her bouquet. Katelyn and Adam love the outdoors so this venue was perfect for their ceremony. The couple choose Katelyn’s brother to officiate their wedding, and the ceremony was heartfelt with many references to Katelyn’s loving childhood and the lessons of love created from a supportive family. We loved that the couple brought their rescued dogs to be there with them, and adored how each guest signed a pod to be forever kept in the couples new home in Florida as a reminder of the day. We spent time with the couple after the ceremony, walking on the Arizona Trail and talked about their family and friends, their bond and their love. I think it’s my favorite time of the wedding day; just giving a couple a few moments to reflect on their love always brings out the best photos.
Congratulations to Katelyn and Adam! We hope you’re enjoying your new home in Florida! ~ Melissa and Kristen
We met Josette and Brett in Oak Creek Canyon on a beautiful fall day. This was our first time meeting them in person since we Skyped for our consultation, so we were very excited! Josette and Brett are such a cute couple, always have a smile on their face and make each other laugh. They had a very calm fun loving vibe about them. We look forward to spending more time with them at their wedding in May at Sky Ranch Lodge in Sedona. Congratulations you two! Enjoy your engagement!
It’s an amazing thing to watch a family grow and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this little angel since Stephanie and Eugene’s maternity session this summer. The couple decided to wait to find out the gender and we were so excited to hear they had a beautiful little boy! Big (canine) brother Roscoe was very excited too! Kristen and I are so excited for you two and all the wonderful adventures to come being a parent. Congrats Stephanie and Eugene! ~ Melissa
It is always a true delight every year to photograph the Brown Family. As a photographer, it is so fun to see and capture how much the kids change and grow over just one year! This year we added Derrick’s parents and sisters family to the session so we could get a large family photo. The Brown’s timed the beautiful yellow wildflowers and sunflowers just right! As you can see this session was blessed with an explosion of color! Thank you to the Brown and McChesney’s for having fun with us in the sunflower field! ~Kristen
