Flagstaff couple runs down a mountain road during their engagement photography shoot.

The first time I visited, I realized immediately that I wanted to do a Flagstaff engagement or couples photo shoot. The mountains and trees all over Flagstaff are so beautiful, you can barely tell you’re still in Arizona! I got to Flagstaff around 2 PM after shooting an elopement in Sedona that morning. Since this was only the second time I’d been to Flagstaff, I still needed to location scout before meeting up with my couple for their sunset photoshoot! I drove into Flagstaff and I saw Humphrey’s Peak covered in snow. I knew I wanted to shoot with it as the backdrop.

This is how my day went from there: I drove all over Flagstaff. I hiked 3 separate mountain trails. Then, I got lost in the woods alone. I finally made it back to my car and prioritized getting tacos over a nap because I was HANGRY. After all of that, I found a park that would at least work, and went to meet my couple. After I picked them up, I took a wrong turn and… there it was. Mt. Humphrey was large and in charge, right in front of a beautiful field. It was exactly what I looked for all day.
