Rachel + Nick | Engagement | Flagstaff

Engagement season is in full force. And no one wants to take pictures in Phoenix this time of year because yeah, it’s still kind of hot. Who wants to smooch when it’s 107 out? So a few weeks ago I was up in Jerome, and this one was Flagstaff. I have a few more this coming weekend and I believe Sedona and somewhere else outside of Phoenix are on the docket.

I met up with Rachel and Nick at the Lumberyard Brewing Company just over a week ago. Such an awesome couple, I can’t believe their wedding isn’t until next MAY! Seems so far off, but good things to those who wait right?

After a couple of beers, we headed out to walk around the historic downtown areas of Flagstaff and then headed up Humphrey’s Peak to a little spot I found thanks to the help of my buddy Jeff and also Google Maps. You’d never know from the road that a gorgeous little pond existed beyond the trees.

So here are some of the pics…these two looked amazing and we had such a fun time!

They wanted a pictures like this one below and amazingly we got lucky enough to have a train come by. I applaud their ability to smooch with a massive train rushing by only a few feet away!

Had to snap a shot of this dude…I mean…wow.

I really have to thank these two for being willing to walk through the trees to this gorgeous view of western Arizona. Probably one of my most favorite spots I’ve ever found.

Here is where the champagne bottle popped open all by itself and Rachel got blasted. I think Nick and I were laughing, poor Rachel wasn’t as much. I believe champagne stings pretty hard core if it hits you in the eyes like that 🙂 She was a trooper though.

Yeah. This pond. That tree. That bench. That sunset. Couldn’t have hoped for anything better.

    OH. MY. GOODNESS. That LIGHT! Sunset was so epic too! Great, great set, my friend. As your resident optometrist, I have to recommend eye protection for future champagne uncorkings…
