What could be better than saying your forever vows surround by the rawness and beauty of nature? Katie + Eric said “I do” this past weekend at the Sunrise Amphitheater at Flagstaff. It was one of those beautiful bluebird days with the crispness of fall just around the corner.
The florals from Petals Wedding Flowers and Love Letters Floral were exploding with striking fall colors. After the short and sweet ceremony the wedding party and guests made there way to an intimate reception at the Greenbriar Inn. Where we were greeted with two jaw dropping cakes from Rachael at Intricate Icings. The wedding cake mirrored Katie’s dress and was absolutely over the top and tasted just as good as it looked!
The night was made complete with all the love that Katie and Eric share and the warmth from their family and friends. It truly was a night to remember! We can’t wait to get all the photos back from Lisa from Dog Daze Photo but until then, take a moment to check out the iPhone photos we were able to snap throughout the day!

“I had such a great connection with this bride (who was my freshman college roommate) and with the entire bridal party that they felt comfortable enough to launch a snowball war on their photographer! All for a good photo. . . !”
This is my seventh year photographing weddings. I’ve documented everything from intimate front porch ceremonies to five star galas, couples saying “I-Do” while jumping out of a plane, skiing off the backside of a mountain and reciting vows by the ocean. It’s always an honor when a couple invites me into their lives to photograph their wedding. I see my role as both a documentarian, capturing authentic and candid moments, and as an artist who creates beautiful and timeless art to hang on the wall. What I’ve learned as a wedding photographer is that the better a connection I have with the couple the better the photographs. For me, photography is all about connecting with people. When we have a relationship that means I am invested in you, in your happiness and in getting you the best images. And when you feel a connection to me, you trust me to be a part of your life and capture that once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Here’s why it’s so important to “click” with your wedding photographer:
