Meet the Bowne Family! As Flagstaff Family Photographer’s we just love summertime and meeting new clients! The Browne Family was so much fun to photograph! We met at Aspen Corner to capture their family in the beautiful Aspen groves, ferns and wildflowers. Their 3 year old Margaret loved climbing on big rocks and logs. Cooper, only 4 months old, enjoyed being held and smiling at the camera. Copper was one of the best babies I have ever worked with!
We asked the Browne’s a few questions about their family, one in particular really made me laugh:
Share with us any funny or memorable moments of your children:
When we brought Cooper home form the hospital and Mike was putting Margaret to bed she turned to him and said, “Daddy, meeting your baby brother is hard work. I’m really tired.” Good thing she loves her baby brother more than anything else.
What are Margaret & Cooper’s favorite activities or hobbies?
riding bikes, playing with her “babies”, arts/crafts, being outside, and reading.
What are your favorite family vacation spots?
Camping on the North Rim, going to Lake Powell, traveling to Colorado.
Thank you to the Browne family, it was wonderful to meet and work with you. We can’t wait until next time! ~Kristen
Rhoda is our beautiful client from Snowflake, Arizona. Rhoda often comes to Flagstaff to have fun, relax and visit her daughters. She loves being out in nature so we thought it would be perfect to photograph her session at the duck pond in Flagstaff. The duck pond is a beautiful spot this time of year, it is very lush and full of wild flowers. We also had dramatic monsoon storm clouds to the beautiful backdrop. Perfect for Rhoda and her colorful sundress! Rhoda you are stunning, thank you for being a fabulous client! ~Kristen
I recently met and have gotten to know Jesse and Kyle through my husband. They are such a fun and easy going couple, I was ecstatic when they contacted us to photograph their Flagstaff engagement session. We decided to drive around to a few outdoor locations and utilize the beautiful summer landscape. We timed the start of the engagement session perfectly, the monsoon clouds had just started to move in and we barely got sprinkled on. We ended the session at the top of Mars Hill at the look out point before the entrance to Lowell Observatory. This is a special place for Jesse and Kyle. They often drive up to this view point to relax and reflect on their day. Congratulations to Jesse and Kyle, it was so much fun working with you both! ~Kristen
We asked Jesse and Kyle a few questions about their relationship:
Tell us the story of how you met …
We grew up within a couple miles of each other. Knew of each other in high school because Jesse’s family rented their house to Kyle’s family for a short time. We hung out in Tempe every weekend at a townhouse in Tempe during college and timing was always off. We lost touch and reconnected 4 years later at a wedding in rocky point that we both happened to be in. We’ve been together ever sense.
Tell us about your engagement/proposal…
Kyle proposed to me on our 2 year anniversary in Jerome. We had planned to go and stay for a night to celebrate out anniversary.After we ate dinner at Quince we roamed around the town and ended up waling in the neighborhood of houses that is above the main street around sunset. We were walking and talking and Kyle dropped down on one knee and popped the question and I screamed . We celebrated at the spirit room all night:)
What things do you two have in common and like to do together?
We like going to the Observatory and Lake Mary. We like jumping in the car and going to Prescott, Cottonwood, Jerome, and Sedona. We also like going to new places that neither of us has ever been before. We also enjoy a lazy river or pool kind of staycation in the valley every now and then. We both love music, cycling, our dog Daisy, socializing.
As Sedona Wedding Photographer’s we love to photograph at new locations and venues. Aimee and Matt were lucky enough to have their ceremony and reception at Aimee’s family’s private estate that sits on West Fork in beautiful Oak Creek Canyon. The private estate has been in Aimee’s families since 1950 and has always been a special place that she spent many summers. Aimee started off the day by getting pampered with her bridesmaids by Liz and Lindsey from Sedona Beauty Team, everyone looked gorgeous! The ceremony was held under a canopy of trees that overlooked the creek, and hummingbirds danced along the bride’s flowers during her vows. It was truly magical. After the ceremony, we made our way to the creek for photos of the bride and groom. As the water rushed by us, it almost seemed as if we were in a different world. Thank you for having us you two and we’re looking forward to your one year anniversary session next year!

Michelle and Barry were married a couple weeks ago on the spirit song deck at the beautiful L’Auberge de Sedona. The couple both work for Continental Airlines, Barry a pilot and Michelle a flight attendant, and met on a trip to Amsterdam. They instantly knew that they had met someone special! Since they met, Michelle and Barry would escape to Sedona for a few days of relaxing and hiking. So when it came time to plan their wedding they knew they had to have a destination wedding in Sedona. Amy Mills from Bliss Extraordinary Floral created a magnificent bouquet and creek side reception area. The reception area was dripping with beautiful florals, cactus, lights and candles. It made for a romantic intimate setting for the beautiful couple and their out of town guests. Because of Michelle and Barry’s love for Sedona they chose to book a day after session with us. This allowed us the time to take them to many beautiful and scenic locations around Sedona. Our first stop was at the Sedona Airport where we stumbled upon this amazing vintage red biplane. A special thank you to Scott “Scooter” Sibson for allowing us to use his beautiful plane. After the airport we traveled to Los Abrigados and Schnebly Hill to take advantage of both the creek and scenic red rock views. We wish Michelle and Barry a wonderful marriage and hope to see them again soon in Sedona! ~Kristen

Nikki and Scott were married at one of our favorite venues tucked away in Chino Valley, Granite Creek Vineyards. The couple wanted to have a relaxed rustic theme which I think they pulled off perfectly! The beautiful bride Nikki handmade the groomsmen’s boutonnieres, burlap roses, table runners and many other details for their special day. Nikki chose a beautiful light color palette for the wedding. The bridesmaid looked stunning in the pale pink and ivory dresses, and of course the entire wedding party wore cowboy boots! After the ceremony the guests enjoyed dinner and dancing in front of a beautiful old red barn. The evening was absolutely perfect! Congrats to Nikki & Scott!
