Family Sessions-The Naleski Family

Meet the Naleski Family, Jerome, Jill, Georgia and their new little one, Grace. I've known Jerome for a while through volunteering with Flagstaff Biking Organization. He also is a Realtor in town. When I first met him, I kept forgetting his name. I finally made up a jingle in my head to help. It went something like this..."His name's Jerome...he sells beautiful homes...". Corny? Yes. But will I ever forget again? Never. Jill is a massage therapist at Flagstaff Face and Body. I can't wait to visit her one day! Here's only a few of my favorites, you can check out more on my Facebook Account or see their slideshow here.

Little America Wedding-Heather and Bill

What a sweet couple! Heather and Bill are so in love and I was so blessed to be able to spend the day with them. Heather and Bill were married at Little America, which is a gorgeous place for a ceremony and reception in Flagstaff. I even love the rooms, which feature beautiful furniture and gorgeous light. It was really hard for me to pick a few of my favorites from this wedding, but here they are. You can see more on my Facebook Account, and you can see their slideshow here.

I loved Heather's dress. It was so perfect for her!

Heather had a lot of beautiful butterfly tattoos.

Nothing is more fun than a group photo on the playground!

Gorgeous flowers by Splendid Things!

Finally, the happy couple! Congrats!

Family Sessions-The Aldaz, Urtuzuasetgui and Floyd Families

I absolutely love this family. It's the kind where you show up for a photo session, and leave with invitation to Thanksgiving dinner. I've known Andrea and her family for years, since Isaiah was a baby. She was one of the first people to encourage me to pursue photography and has always cheered me along my path. Now that I'm a full-time photographer, and too busy sometimes to even see my own husband, I really look forward to this family session. Here are only a few of my favorites. You can see more on my Facebook Account and their slideshow here. Love you guys!

Isaiah is FAST!

I love this one of Armando and Andrea!

Jeremy and Debra, you might remember their wedding at the Grand Canyon!

Julie and Andrew: they were married at the Phoenix Golf Resort last year!

Sister Carla and boyfriend Bill!

Beautiful sister Kristen

Creekside Inn Sedona-Brooke and Nick

Brooke and Nick had a small, intimate wedding at the Creekside Inn in Sedona. What a great couple! They completely adored one another and I was so lucky to be there to photograph their wedding. After the wedding, we headed out into the Red Rocks and took a few images before the rain started. Rain clouds make for the best photos so never be sad to see them on the day of your event! Here are only a few of my favorites. You can see more on my Facebook Account and you can see their slideshow here. Congrats Brooke and Nick!

The Creekside Inn has a beautiful place for a ceremony. Love the trees!

Kate Freeman of Sedona Dream Weddings planned a beautiful ceremony.

Love the clouds!

Lake Powell Wedding-Tiffany and Aaron

Tiffany and Aaron were married aboard the Canyon Princess on Lake Powell. Right before their wedding, a HUGE sandstorm rolled in creating large white caps on the lake. It was one of the craziest things I've ever seen! It soon passed and the boat was able to embark for the wedding, which was very sweet and included the couples friends and family from all across the US. Here are only a few of my favorites. You can see more on my Facebook Account, and you can watch the slideshow here! Congrats Tiffany and Aaron!

I love fancy wedding shoes!

What a pretty flower girl! The crown was created by the talented Dana at Glamorous Occasions who did all the floral and decorations for the event.

Tiffany had TWO wedding bands. Aaron said the first one was for their life before they were married, and the second was for their life after they were married. Awwww....!!

I love this bouquet created by Glamorous Occasions!

Tiffany and Aaron were such a sweet couple.

Right after sunset on the deck of the ship. Beautiful!

Wisconsin Wedding-Erica and Matt

Erica and Matt live in Flagstaff where Matt is an attorney and Erica is starting her own business as a voice coach and event singer here in Flagstaff (She does weddings now!! ) I was so honored to go to Wisconsin to photograph their wedding. I had never been up to that part of the country and I fell in love with it! The rolling green hills, the running water, and, of course-the cows! Erica grew up on a Dairy Farm and I couldn't resist all the cow photos. Her dad was sweet enough to show me all around the farm and he even introduced me to the babies when they were born. I could go on and on about how much fun I had, but I'll just show you a few of my favorites. You can see their slideshow here or go to Facebook to see more photos.

This photo was taken on the Kragness Dairy Farm. Pretty!

Erica's Uncle drove them to the reception at the Lake Wissota Golf Course. Nice wheels!

They were married in the same church were Erica's parents were married. I loved the flowers hanging on the pews. This was the idea of Kim Duncan Design who was also there for the event.

This photo was taken on the family farm property too!

I love dancing photos! What a great reception!

This is one of my favorite photos from the day; Erica and Matt walking away from our last photo!

Right before sunset on Lake Wissota-Beautiful!

Engagement Session-Ashley and Ryan

Ashley and Ryan are getting married next year and wanted to do an engagement session in Flagstaff. Ashley really wanted to find some sunflowers since that's the type of flowers she wants for her wedding. This year in Flagstaff, it's been really dry, but we did manage to find one last field of beautiful flowers. You can tell just how much they adore each other in these photos and it was fun spending the morning with them. I didn't post the ones they ordered for their sign in photo, it's a surprise, but here are a few of my favorites! You can see more on my Facebook Account too! Congrats!

I've always wanted to get this shot, but people are always in the Square in the afternoon. The early morning was just perfect for lighting too!

I didn't notice this at first, but my sister in law pointed out that the shirt on his jeans makes a heart shape!
