Flagstaff wedding in the woods

Flagstaff wedding in the woods

The bride and groom removed their shoes and said their vows while barefoot in the woods. This Flagstaff, Arizona wedding was an intimate, bohemian and laid back affair. I love the bride’s dress and delicate flowers in her hair. The wedding reception was held at a private cabin in the forest north of Flagstaff. There was a masseuse for the guests to unwind during the party and a grove of hammocks to relax in. The cake topper was one of the cutest I have ever seen, an homage to the bride and groom and the groom’s beloved cat. Twinkle lights wrapped around the property lite up the night. Much love to W + S, I’m so happy to have been their to capture all the special moments and emotions of the wedding day.

Alyssa and Brandon’s Desert Botanical Garden portrait session

Desert Botanical Garden wedding photography

I first met Alyssa and Brandon in 2016 when I photographed their engagement session. We had a fun time photographing in the beautiful Phoenix desert ahead of their Midwest wedding. They got married out of state but contacted me about a post-wedding portrait session back here in Arizona and I jumped at the chance. Although I was not at the wedding it was fun to see Alyssa and Brandon dressed up again, this time for pictures at the Desert Botanical Garden. A perfect blue sky day and wildflowers in bloom made a gorgeous setting. Congratulations (again) to Alyssa and Brandon.

Danielle and Erik’s Desert Botanical Garden in bloom wedding

Desert Botanical Garden Phoenix photographer

The Desert Botanical Garden was in bloom and the yellow of the Palo Verde trees made the garden even that much more breathtaking for Danielle and Erik’s wedding. Cat lovers, Erik was showing his love with cats both on his bow tie as well as kitty cuff links. My favorite moment while Danielle was getting ready was how emotional her niece got seeing Danielle put on her veil! The ceremony, officiated by Danielle’s sister and Erik’s brother was personal and gorgeous under a canopy of yellow. The party was so much fun with two pianos for live music! Congratulations Danielle and Erik!

Reflecting back on the year gone by is one of my favorite things to do. I love looking at pictures and remembering all those moments of laughter and emotion. I am so thankful to all the beautiful people I had the privilege of spending time with and who let me in to capture their personal and unique wedding story.

Samantha and Kyle’s Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort- New Year’s Eve wedding blowout

I will forever be comparing New Year’s Eve weddings to Samantha and Kyle’s high energy, emotional, loving, sweet, tearful, colorful, classic, loud and alive day. So this couple is gorgeous, that goes without saying, but guess what…they are also super nice people with amazing supportive families. The ceremony and party at the Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort were perfection. One of my favorite moments was the ketubah signing was in a little conference room packed with what seemed like every last family member of the couple. This felt really special, a community of people supporting Samantha and Kyle as they wed under Jewish law. Samantha and Kyle said their vows beneath an exquisite chuppah flanked by parents and siblings. Confetti bombs started the reception off right as Samantha and Kyle were announced in what could only be described as a snowstorm of confetti. Dancing, champagne, the hora (always a favorite!), Hanukkah candles, a midnight balloon drop and glowing sneakers made the night unforgettable! Congratulations Samantha and Kyle! I wish you much love and happiness and a lifetime of incredible celebrations together!
