Forest Wedding in Flagstaff Arizona | Flagstaff Wedding Photographer

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”


Being a Flagstaff Wedding Photographer I get to work in some pretty amazing place but one thing is consistent with Flagstaff Weddings…our beautiful scenery. If you’ve been to Northern Arizona, you know what I’m talking about. There’s something about the grand Ponderosa Pines that melt away everyone’s stress and anxiety. And a wedding in the woods? Well, that’s a recipe for perfection, in my opinion.

Pailey and Cooper were married at Pailey’s parents house which backed up to the Coconino Forest. Can you imagine having your backyard be the launching pad for endless trails and constant visiting wildlife? That’s pretty much my dream 🦌. Can I get an Amen?

I met this sweet couple through Pailey’s cousin, Kaitlin. These cousins are as close as sisters and when Kaitlin gave her speech at the reception, well, let’s just say I’m glad I had a tissue nearby.

To say the love Pailey and Cooper have for one another was BIG would be a huge understatement. I loved how they made each other smile, giggle and laugh. I think one of the keys to a successful marriage is laughter and seeing how these two interacted I know their love will last a lifetime.

Congrats you two! May you live Happily Ever After ❤️️
