i like how color pops in the desert; the red rocks, the blue in kate's dress and shoes, the grass.. her dress was custom made just for her.

happy valentine's day

imagine our delight when getting this plate of cookies from our dear friend andrea at sedona cake couture ... she's of course known for her gorgeous and delicious cakes, but look at these cookies!

i wanted to photograph the cookie plate, but it was a few cookies short by the time we got to it, and the kids were just dying to eat them... let's just say they didn't last long ;) ( andrew also enjoyed dipping one, or two, or three of them in his coffee)

thanks, andrea, for the cookies! and we hope everyone had a great valentine's day!

stay tuned for some images from some super sweet winter elopements and a valentine's day wedding in sedona







~xoxo~
katrina + andrew

kate + norm { married } flagstaff wedding under the san francisco peaks

kate and norm are hotshots... they go out and fight all those crazy wildfires. they decided to have their flagstaff wedding under the san francisco peaks at their training camp. it's so sweet that they picked a location that was so sentimental to them, and where they have spent so much time.

their wedding was relaxed, beautiful, and so very, very personal. all the details can be credited to kim duncan, of kd events ... she is a must-have at weddings as she really does an amazing job creating themed details that pull together an event.

we were so very lucky that this noon wedding ( ...all photographers can tell you that midday is the *worst* time to get married because of the harsh light) had a canopy to soften the light. kate's sister is our good friend cameron (who is a fabulous photographer) and she was able to talk kate into adding this for photos ... so be sure to check out the amazingly gorgeous canopy and reception canopy kim duncan arranged! thank you gals! it made all the difference!

venue :: hotshot ranch ... flagstaff, arizona
wedding design and styling :: kim duncan at kd events
makeup :: donna shoemaker
bouquet and boutonniere :: jim and ken at events by showstoppers
wedding dress :: from neiman marcus
brides shoes :: martinez valero ... zenith
catering :: thornager's
wedding cakes :: caked
wedding pies :: baked with love by kate's mom and aunt
grooms suit :: hugo boss
minister :: kate's crew boss
rentals :: tri rentals

their slideshow is below... it's a long one... there are so many great moments and great details!
