There is nothing like a good old-fashion, spur-of-the-moment elopement in the red rocks of Sedona.

I just had the pleasure of photographing Kate & Chadd’s wedding in Sedona at Los Abrigados! It was truly a delight. While I’m busy editing away all the crazy amounts of jobs I’ve had this Fall I wanted to their engagement photos that they also took in Sedona at Los Abrigados.
These photos were taken at the artist’s village Tlaquepaque in Sedona as well as on the Los Abrigados property [ N 34° 51′ 42.2742″ + W 111° 45′ 48.5527″ ] Kate’s beautiful hair & make-up was done by The Sedona Beauty Team.
Flagstaff is an absolutely perfect spot in Arizona for a wedding & engagement photography.
All the trees!!
If you live in Phoenix & are dreaming of some woodland engagement photos know that your wishes are only 2-3 hours away. Sedona has really beautiful forest areas with red rock dirt, the canyon is a stunning spot with lots of water and lush foliage & then all the way up to Flagstaff are beautiful woods that rival the Northwest. Not just all desert!
These are some engagement photos taken in the forest & then with the gorgeous mountains in the background. It was raining [still cannot believe how much it rains here] towards the end which always makes for some creative shots.
These photos were all taken in natural light at Peak View Point [N 35.246343+ W111.685671] and processes in Lightroom using VSCO Fuji 400H++
Lover’s Knoll in Sedona is one of the very best & most beautiful spots at sunset. Sedona weddings and little elopements are always happening here, except for today. Today, this charming man proposed to his girl complete with a rose petal heart, her entire family & a stunning ring!
››› These kinds of moments only happen once in your life & it’s pretty rad to have photos
So thankful he brought me here to witness this joy. Cheers to a lifetime of happiness & good fortune xoxo
These photos were taken at Lover’s Knoll in Sedona, Arizona. There is no sign or anything “official” called it that so you won’t be able to find it on a map. It’s a term locals use but I am including the coordinates for you [ N 34° 50′ 37.9956″ + W 111° 49′ 34.6951″] The photos were taken in the 10 minutes of sun we got that afternoon after on and off rain storms, hallelujah!
Reilly & I were wandering around Scottsdale getting our favorite coffee [Cartel] & favorite eats [Chop Shop] & we found a rad old book store full of tons of really old editions with the coolest covers you’ve ever seen. And then.. I found it…
Never did I think I would find a book that was ›so me‹ I would have thought that I wrote it.
As it turns out, Cactus & Pine is just that. Written by the Arizona adventurer & explorer Sharlot M. Hall. [i.e. my new personal hero] Born in 1870 she was first lady to hold office in the Arizona Territory government & her personal collection of photographs and artifacts served as the starting collection for a history museum which bears her name. Can’t wait to go to Prescott & see all the she was up to!
Looks like we have a lot in common, I think we would have been great friends.
This book was found in Old Town Scottsdale, Arizona & photographed in my front yard in Sedona, Arizona [ N 33° 29′ 49.8368″ +W 111° 55′ 36.2719″
