Sahara and Mike: Flagstaff Arizona Sunflower Engagement Photography


Flagstaff Arizona Sunflower Engagement Photography: Sahara and Mike’s Summer Session. I LOVED working with this down-to-earth, Flagstaff-loving, fun couple. Michael and Sahara have been together about 9 years, they are college sweethearts.


Sahara told me that, “A typical day off when we feel most connected to each other, is when we can get up early on the weekend to make a home made breakfast and spend the day lounging and reading whatever we’re into at that moment. We have one fur pup. Her name is Lola. She is 9 months old and such a sweet little lover, very much a people person. She is more of a social butterfly than we really are and that pulls us out of our comfort zone in a good way.”

About the Location: Opt Outside


Living in a gorgeous mountain town, I naturally began spending more time outdoors with friends and family. As my friendships, photographic knowledge, and lust for travel grew – I searched for a way to combine my love of connecting with like-minded humans and my love for exploring landscapes. On-location portraiture has allowed me to do this. Now, I focus on combining the grandeur of these landscapes with the intimate relationships of my clients. Clients who so often turn from stranger to life-long friends in a matter of hours.


My portfolio reflects the incredible decade I’ve spend making new friends and chasing sunsets. It’s my life that is truly beautiful, my camera simply allows me to share it with the world.


“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty, the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” – Sir David Attenborough


It’s been quite a time already that I have been into photography. I realize that nature is one of the best subjects one could ever have. No matter how beautiful my equipment is, nothing beats the experience when you are capturing the scenery.


From views that are breathtaking to colorful flowers of the fields, this never fails to amaze me. There are many reasons why we need to take our time and explore nature and discover things around it. It is not just a place for activities because it has something more to offer.


Nature gives a man an experience to know more about himself and his beingness that is why it is advisable to visit a beautiful environment once in a while.

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.
