From the moment I started talking to Brigitte and Prashant I knew their day was going to be magical! They wanted to celebrate two cultures by doing an Indian style wedding ceremony followed by a traditional ceremony and reception. We couldn't be more honored or excited to document their day and as you can see by their pictures there was an outpour of love! They were both sweethearts to communicate with from the start. On their wedding day they were glowing with love and laughter!

Robin and Jack and there loved ones were nothing but fun, smiles, and laughter on their wedding day! It felt easy to be their photographer because they made it so easy for me by just smiling naturally all the time! I enjoyed photographing at the Enchantment Resort and working with the amazing wedding planner Laura from Heart of Sedona Weddings again! Xoxo 💋The beautiful backlighting, beautiful gals, a few drinks, and lots of laughter was a recipe for great photos. Plus a unique and gorgeous bouquet 💐Flowers Jazz Bouquet Floral.
Christina & Alex had a gorgeous backyard wedding in Sedona, Arizona. It was such a delight to meet them and photograph them on their special wedding day! Besides a warm welcome and lots of good vibes.. I felt extremely lucky for sunny weather and the ability to photograph from the balcony to include the Sedona Red Rock Views!

The wedding dress and rings were beautiful and everything at the wedding was made with lots of care & love! I was in awe of the details and food being prepared. The decor and food made the house more gorgeous then it already was!
This was one of my favorite weddings of the AZ winter season to photograph! I had photographed this couple before and so I already knew great things were in store for us! They also chose to have their wedding at the beautiful Four Seasons Scottsdale Arizona! I was in photography heaven with the beautiful mountains and saguaro cactus all around ... not to mention the stunning Bride, handsome Groom, and their cute little baba. =)
Thank you K+D for making me feel so welcome! You two are super easy to photograph and I can't wait to see you again for a future family photo shoot!
The rain didn’t keep the smiles away! The ceremony was held outside under a gazebo with cloudy skies and Sedona backdrops all around. As soon as the bride walked down the aisle it was as if the cold stopped and everyone could feel the warmth between the two. Rachel and Christopher are obviously madly in love and it made everyone happy. Although there may have been a few teeth chattering, I think the rainstorm was a blessing on their wedding day. Besides the saying that rain brings good luck to the newlyweds, the storm also allowed me to take breathtaking photos of the couple with a dramatic desert storm backdrop.
Mark and Beth decided to elope intimately and alone in the beautiful Sedona, Arizona. My favorite part of photographing this elopement was that it was practically right next door to my house in a beautiful BnB. Their day was cloudy but that didn’t keep the joy and love away. Beth and Marks smiling faces were priceless!
Her beautiful bouquet was full of lovely succulents and perfect accent flowers from Sedona Mountain High Flowers.
Hair and make up was done by a beautiful new make up artist in Sedona Charity Silvera!
Gorgeous jewelry to accent her blue .... yes I said blue wedding dress! Which I absolutely loved on her!
Beth specifically wanted a photos with Banjo the BnB dog!
Heather and Randall’s wedding day was a perfect mixture of all the things that matter most to them… spirituality, music, signing, family, friends, fun, love, partying, dancing, food & drinks, sparklers, and more dancing.
The outdoor location they chose for their ceremony and reception has huge sentimental value as it’s right across from their loving home.
Heather put a lot of time and energy into organizing everything and making sure the focus would be both on the ceremony and the celebration afterwards. It was obvious she wanted all of her loved ones to feel blessed and have an amazing time celebrating. The pictures show just how successful she was!
As guests arrived they were ritually fanned in sage smoke with a feather wand to clear away any negativity and bring in an abundance of love and joy in preparation for the ceremony.
Ben and Kelly’s relationship was kismet. They were invited by a mutual friend to go hiking the upper Salt River to a beautiful waterfall. Kelly almost didn't go but something inside her made her reconsider. Little did she know she would meet "her person" There was an instant connection and it changed the direction of their lives. As Ben drove to the river he played his favorite music including Bob Marley, Incubus, and Pearl Jam. As fate would have it, those were some of Kelly's favorite bands too. Ben felt different around Kelly; her smile, sense of humor, and loving spirit intrigued him. Ben wanted to make sure Kelly was safe the whole day. He helped her cross the slippery rocks and they later shared laughs over Mexican food. Before the night was over Kelly asked Ben for his number so she could send him some photos of their adventure. Ben used this opportunity to ask Kelly out the following night and this began a budding passionate connection that seemed it was "meant to be."
Their first date, the very next night, was so dreamy that they didn’t notice getting soaked by misters and Kelly lost all track of time. They began spending almost every day together. Their friendship grew and with it a romantic connection. They would sit and talk, slow dance in the living room, and stare into each other's eyes while listening to playlists they created to express all their "feelz."
Ben surprised Kelly with his proposal during a staycation that turned into a full on celebration with family and friends he had secretly invited. Finally, Ben and Kelly chose Sedona for their outdoor wedding for its beauty, healing, and energizing properties which brings us to their wedding day…
As I drove through the canyon to the Oak Creek Luxury Cabins, I noticed it was a very popular day to be in the canyon because Kelly and Ben chose one of the most beautiful times of the year to get
married there. The tree leaves were turning shades of yellows and reds complimented by the natural greens of the plants. The red rock walls all around added to the splendor. I could tell Kelly put a lot of thought and time into her invitations and wedding plans. She even attached fresh lavender sprigs to the invites!
The rings were beautiful and fun to photograph but when I saw the wedding dress... I melted. I loved the lace AND the style. The dress looked even more perfect once Kelly slipped it on. She and all her girls also made these beautiful green braided leaf crowns that went perfectly with the lavender colors of their dresses and bouquets.
There are few things as intimate and romantic as eloping. Add Sedona’s Creekside Inn plus the most important people in your life and you get the lovely elopement of Kelly and Charles. Originally, they had wanted to elope to Italy just the two of them but once their kids caught wind of it there was no way to get married without them. So, they googled destination weddings and found the perfect setting… Creekside Inn at Sedona. They both live in California, love surprises, and spontaneity. True to form they decided not to let each other see the rings until the day of elopement.
As soon as we got to Creekside Inn I photographed the beautiful rings and other lovely details of the day. After some shots of all the guys looking dapper, it was off to see the girls helping Kelly with her dress, final touch ups, hugs, and kisses. Kelly was gorgeous! Her hair and make up was done by The Sedona Beauty Team.
From the moment I met Maria on her wedding day I was like YES another perfect match! This girl is awesome and this wedding is going to be good! While she was getting ready she had on a cute and sporty baseball jersey and tall socks.
Right away, I was obsessed with her big curly hair and big friendly smile. Her mom, grandma, best friend, nieces, and yes, even her dog, Caliber, all gathered around in her hotel room in Sedona to take part in the pre-wedding excitement.
