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!

Erik and Alyson joined lives surrounded by blue skies, red rocks and their closest family and friends. Alyson looked gorgeous in her vintage inspired lace gown and her updo with delicate roses in her hair, and Erik looked very dashing in his bowtie. The day wasn’t without a glitch (most weddings have them!), and no one even knew that Erik had to borrow his uncles pants just moments before they walked down the aisle. We loved the sweet Catholic ceremony, and how easily the couple laughed and cried all through it. As Sedona wedding photographers, one of our favorite venues is Sky Ranch Lodge. It offers breathtaking views, a gorgous ceremony site over looking red rocks and a desert trail just steps from the ceremony. It’s definitely one on the short list of places we love to shoot, for obvious reasons. Congrats Alyson and Erik! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

The Lewis Family moved to Flagstaff last year from Yuma. John has worked at National Bank of Arizona for most of his career and they were delighted when the company chose to move them to Flagstaff. We chose Frances Short Pond as the location for their sweet family. Part of the benefit of being Flagstaff Family Photographers is that we have so many beautiful locations available. Their five kids, who all go to DeMiguel Elementary, were a joy to meet and we loved hearing about their first year in Flagstaff. This family is also celebrating the purchase of their new home here in the high country and we’re so excited to see how they hang their new family photos there! Thank you for letting us capture your memories!
As Flagstaff Family Photographer we meet a lot of families and this one is not only beautiful on the outside but also very sweet and kind. The Golightly children wanted to surprise their mom with updated portraits for Mother’s Day, how cute is that!? We chose to photograph their portraits in their backyard and take advantage of the natural beauty surrounding their home. It is crazy how quickly children grow and change, I know this was a wonderful gift that their mother will cherish!
Jon and Megan were all smiles on their wedding day, and we had so much fun documenting their sweet wedding. The Foothhills Golf Club is a beautiful venue tucked away at the foothills in Tempe, AZ. We loved the outdoor reception area with it’s gorgeous canopy of flowers and twinkle lights. Megan’s WToo gown was gorgeous and she was a vision of beauty as she walked down the aisle. There was not a dry eye as Megan and Jon started to exchange their vows and we loved how easily they laughed and cried through the ceremony. Afterwards, we enjoyed a loved reception and of course, the delicious cake from Honey Moon Sweets. Congrats Megan and Jon!
