Jocelyn and Tyler: Colton House Flagstaff Wedding Photography
Colton House Flagstaff Wedding Photography: Jocelyn and Tyler’s Intimate Mountain Wedding. Every time you look at one of your photos, you are transported back to that exact moment. This is the same reason why wedding photography is so crazy important.
You will be insanely busy on your wedding day, and it’s often said that the whole day goes by in the blink of an eye! That’s where a wedding photographer comes in. A wedding photographer takes on the huge responsibility of capturing everything happening throughout your wedding day, thus allowing you to relax knowing every special moment will be captured for you.
We document all of these wonderful moments and capture them so you can revisit them over and over. Now, you may be thinking that your friends and guests will be there taking photos throughout the day, isn’t that good enough? Not at all! A wedding photographer will be looking out for special moments throughout the entire wedding, including when everyone is eating or going crazy on the dance floor!
Wedding photographers play a very close and intimate role during your wedding. They are with you throughout the whole day, from makeup and getting ready until when you are beyond tired from dancing and laughing for hours at the end of the night. They are constantly communicating with you; if you have any special requests, any special family members they should be looking for, if you need a glass of water. They will be some of your closest friends that day, looking after you.
In regards to the value of photography, much more doesn’t need to be said. As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” These are YOUR moments frozen in time. They are memories that will last forever. These are the same memories you would want to share with everyone, including future generations to come.
Colton House Flagstaff Wedding Photography: The Location…
Less than a mile from the Museum of Northern Arizona stands the Colton House, once the home of museum founders Mary-Russell Ferrell Colton and her husband Dr. Harold Colton.
Much like the museum, the house became a testament to the couple’s passions and attraction to the Colorado Plateau. Colton House has become a gathering place of minds and ideas — and a place for celebrations.
Relocating from eastern Pennsylvania, the Coltons came to northern Arizona with their own passions. Mary-Russell was a trained artist. Harold was a zoologist. Together they fell in love with the Colorado Plateau’s abundance of natural science, archeology and indigenous cultures.
In 1929, the Coltons began construction on the 6,000-square foot Spanish Colonial Revival style building that would become the Colton House.
A little less than 20 years ago, it was restored. Now, it serves as a place for weddings, anniversaries, reunions and retreats — and is a gem and an icon that is part of the Museum of Northern Arizona’s legacy.
