Meet Dana and Walter from Oklahoma. Walter’s wife of forty years passed away and he was blessed to find love again in Dana. The couple wanted to keep it simple and true to their adventurous spirit.
They chose to elope to Sedona. Hitting the spectacular red rocks wasn’t adventurous enough, though. They wanted to add some pink to their day.

The Red Rocks Glow
The famous Red Rocks are made of red sandstone formations. They change color as the sun changes its position in the sky. They can look bright red in the middle of the day, a bright orange about an hour before sunset and the purple hues come out at dusk.
As a photographer that specializes in engagement and elopement sessions, I never tire of staging a photo with the breathtaking backdrops that Sedona has to offer. There is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world.
A Good Black and White Photo Speaks Volumes
Yes, the Red Rocks are spectacular in all their color. But a good black and white photo captures the soul of the subject. The timelessness of a good black and white holds a magic that is hard to capture in color.
Just look at these images of Dana and Walter. Their relationship and love become the focus – you can feel their emotion. It captures the true essence of that moment in time.
See for yourself.
Sunsets in Sedona are Magical
Did you know Sedona is ranked as one of the best places to see a sunset by Travel & Leisure magazine? In the world!
Travel & Leisure says:
“Watching the sunset can be a near-spiritual experience in the raw beauty of Sedona, where the desert meets the mountains. Sedona is known for its famous red rock buttes, and the sun’s setting rays make the vibrant colors of the landscape glow against the deepening blue of the desert sky.”
I’m not sure I could have said it better myself. I love late afternoon hikes that end as the sun is setting behind some of the stunning formations like Cathedral Rock or Courthouse Butte.
It also happens to be one of my favorite things to photograph. I’m glad my afternoon with Dana and Walter ended with the glow of the sun as it set on the red rocks followed by a beautiful, tranquil dusk.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Dana and Walter. I’m honored to be a small part of their special day.
Dana and Walter, may you enjoy each other and the beautiful images from your special day for years to come. ~Melissa
Angela and Kyle were married at one of our favorite venues, Sky Ranch Lodge, in Sedona, AZ. We’ve always said they have some of the most beautiful views in the whole town, but every time we go there, it literally takes our breath away. Angela looked stunning in her lace and silk gown and her bouquet was a perfect blend of lavender, orange and white flowers, created by our friends at Bliss Extraordinary Floral. Kyle and the men wore classic suits and the bridesmaids looked stunning in their orange chiffon creations. This couple was a joy to work with, so full of laughter and sweetness for each other. We loved that Kyle could make Angela giggle just by looking at her a certain way, and the tenderness they demonstrated for each other made all our our hearts melt. It was a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony led by Susanne Loo McCoy of Intimate Sedona Weddings. There were a couple of sweet hiccups in the ceremony, Kyle’s wedding band wouldn’t go on and the couple forgot the glass for the breaking of the glass ceremony, but Angela and Kyle only laughed and said it made for great memories. We’re so blessed to have such kind, loving and sweet clients like this. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness! Mazel tov!
