Katie and Mark: Sedona Engagement Photographers
Sedona Engagement Photographers: Katie and Mark’s Sunset Session. It was such an amazing experience to be able to photograph Katie and Mark. We explored the edge of the Sedona. These two were a total BLAST to adventure with. I was thrilled to go off-roading with these two to capture some memories. Anytime a clients calls and asks ‘Will you travel?’. My answer is always yes and I love it! It’s amazing to be a part of so many special moments in my clients’ lives. I love my job!
I gift my clients an engagement session because of how incredibly valuable it is to have time together before the wedding. Sure, you could just meet up for coffee and talk, but I’m talking about time together before the wedding where they get to see how I work, they get to experience how I pose, and they get to find out how FUN it really is to be in front of the camera. Some couples are really nervous leading up to the first session, but after they see the success of the engagement photos, it puts them at ease for the wedding day. And that ends up being a time-saver, and leading to better, more natural results on the wedding day.
Red Rock Country: The Location
For the more adventurous at heart, a 40-minute drive on a very bumpy old dirt road leads to a remote ceremony site very popular for intimate weddings and elopements. The views are almost unparalleled to any other Sedona wedding location. 360 degree views are stunning to take in and make the journey well worth while. It’s secluded location keeps it fairly private and while there is usually a handful of people enjoying the views and hiking it’s not uncommon to be the only ones there. Compared to Bell Rock or Red Rock Crossing it is a very quiet and private location.
This location is not for the faint of heart. The jeep ride can be pretty jarring. For all the trouble involved in getting there, as you can see, it’s well worth it for the stunning red rock views and desirable scenery couples planning a Sedona wedding crave. The timing can be tricky with light there and we highly recommend at least 90 of shooting time for the ceremony and portraits on Merry Go Round… 2 hours is ideal. There is about a 10 minute walk from the main dirt road so be sure to take a pair of hiking shoes with you for the walk out and back. Plenty of shooting time also will allow for going to two locations on Merry Go Round Rock … there are two levels to Merry Go Round rock and both are an amazing backdrop for wedding photography.
