This couple came from the gorgeous area of San Francisco and San Diego to meet in Sedona to enjoy some quality time together. They choose the Enchantment Resort and I can’t think of a more relaxing and rejuvenating place to be. Once you’re on site, every care in the world just melts away as their staff makes your stay easy and restful. If you’ve never been to the Enchantment, put it on your bucket list. It makes for a luxurious and wonderful long weekend or week splurge.
Shaila and Jarod were so wonderful to work with and I loved getting to know them as we hiked along a trail in Sedona. Since they live so far apart from one another it was important to them to choose a location where they could have some romantic quiet time and I loved that I was so lucky to have been able to document their relationship. As the sun dipped below the horizon, I enjoyed using my off-camera-flash to capture some dramatic looks and dreamy sunset skies. Being a Sedona photographer is such an amazing job, especially when I get to spend it with such wonderful and caring people like Shaila and Jared.
I hope you both enjoyed your trip and I can’t wait to see you next time! xoxo ~ Melissa
Sometimes it’s sureal living so close to Sedona. In 21 short miles from downtown Flagstaff, we can be looking at scenery that every time, blows me away. If you’ve ever had the chance to visit there, you know what I’m talking about. And if not, get it on your bucket list.
One of the cool things about Sedona is Oak Creek. In Flagstaff, we don’t have a lot of water, so it’s a real treat to have a running creek so close to home. It’s nice to escape there during our warmer months, and be able to stick our toes into the clear, pristine water or fly fish the native trout. As Sedona Wedding Photographers, Red Rock Crossing is one of our favorite places to shoot. The grounds are diverse, with trees, tall grasses, and of course the creek. Depending on the season, the water could be high or low making for unique photos every time. But, one of the most amazing things, in my opinion, is the breathtaking overlook on the way to Red Rock Crossing. It’s one that many people drive by all the time with out stopping, and definitely off the beaten path. If you ever find your way in Sedona, plan on a sunset stop here.
