Kaytie and John: Elopement and Courthouse Wedding Photographer Flagstaff Arizona

Elopement and Courthouse Wedding Photographer Flagstaff Arizona: Kaytie and John. I absolutely loved this recent downtown elopement with Kaytie and John. These two locals decided to skip the stress of wedding planning and tie the knot at the courthouse. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, these two confessed their love and solidified their union. It was wonderful to wok with them – congratulations again!


“Very relaxed and wonderful session. Monica was professional and our final pictures are beautiful. We are so happy we chose Monica for our wedding day photography.” – Kaytie T.


Elopement and Courthouse Wedding Photographer Flagstaff Arizona: The Sun Rising…

Busy old fool, unruly sun, Why dost thou thus. Through windows, and through curtains call on us? Must to thy motions lovers’ seasons run? Saucy pedantic wretch, go chide. Late school boys and sour prentice, Go tell court huntsmen that the king will ride. Call country ants to harvest offices, Love, all alike, no season knows nor clime. Nor hours, days, months, which are the rags of time.
Thy beams, so reverend and strong. Why shouldst thou think? I could eclipse and cloud them with a wink. But that I would not lose her sight so long. If her eyes have not blinded thine. Look, and tomorrow late, tell me, Whether both th’ Indias of spice and mine. Be where thou leftst them, or lie here with me. Ask for those kings whom thou saw’st yesterday, And thou shalt hear, All here in one bed lay.


Elopement and Courthouse Wedding Photographer Flagstaff Arizona: The Location…

Along historic 1890s streets you will find numerous clothing boutiques, outdoor outfitters, art galleries and retailers selling authentic Native American arts and jewelry. Live entertainment can be found almost every evening at Heritage Square or within the great restaurants and nightlife venues. Venture south of the tracks to the evolving Southside District with amazing dining and cafés lining the streets.

Although Flagstaff became an incorporated town in 1894, the modern history really dates back to 1876 when settlers passing through honored the nation’s centennial by raising an American flag up a pine tree. Their “flag staff” became a landmark for those who followed, and eventually became the town’s namesake. The western expansion of the railroad in the 1880s attracted merchants and saloonkeepers to set up shop for the railroad workers and lumbermen. Within a couple of years, Flagstaff was a thriving town of railroad, lumber and ranching industries. Early families such as the Riordans (lumber) and Babbitts (ranching) have descendants who still live and work in Flagstaff today. In the ensuing century since; the Normal School would become Northern Arizona University, Lowell Observatory was established, and the surrounding area became a vast National Forest.


Special thanks to the amazing vendors…

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
