Enduring engagement photos in downtown Flagstaff

Alex and Diego are the sweetest lovers and their warmth turned a chilly photo session into timeless engagement photos in downtown Flagstaff.

Downtown Flagstaff is one of the best places to take engagement photos in northern Arizona. Its rustic feel and old-town charm makes it a great option for any type of Flagstaff photography. The results speak for themselves.

We are so excited for Alex and Diego’s upcoming fall elopement in Sedona! Check out a few of the beautiful spots we found during our hour walk through downtown Flagstaff.

Flagstaff engagement photos

The couple decided to schedule their engagement photo shoot on Diego’s birthday. The lucky guy spent his birthday sweetly loving and holding his fiancé as we explored downtown Flagstaff taking photos. The couple knew exactly what to wear, coordinating their outfits to match the red and brown tones of the brick and historic downtown area.

Flagstaff photographers know the downtown area is a picturesque scene for any couple looking for a timeless shoot. Flagstaff is home to the Northern Arizona University Lumberjacks (Go Jacks!) and was established in 1899. It’s crazy to think most of the restaurants, bars and buildings in the nearby downtown are even older than that!

Make it a vacation

Flagstaff is a great place for a rustic yet urban engagement photos. However, the city is surrounded on all sides by the largest ponderosa pine forests in the world. While we didn’t make our way into the forests during our shoot, it’s a great place for whimsical forested scenes. (maybe instead talk about things to do downtown?)

Couples traveling from other nearby areas should know that Flagstaff is two hours from Phoenix by car. Also, it’s about an hour and a half away from the Grand Canyon. We would recommend a weekend trip for an photo shoot because of its wide variety of fun and exciting amenities that Flagstaff has to offer.

“My husband and I planned a small elopement in Sedona. I found Victoria on Instagram and loved her style. We went through the planning process without a wedding planner which proved to be difficult. Victoria was so helpful in making suggestions and pointing us into the right direction, even though I know she really didn’t have to do that as our photographer. On the day of the wedding, she was prompt in arrival and swift in ensuring that she captured everything. In our evening shoot, we went to 2 locations but looking at our pictures it appears that we went to at least 20. She has an amazing eye for photography and truly captured the spirit of our relationship. The quality is excellent and we could not be happier with how our photos turned out. Victoria is a gem. If you are looking for a down to earth and talented photography, choose White Desert Photography!”

We would 100% recommend her to anyone and would be thrilled to have her take our photos again.”
