Sedona Elopement Photographer Teagan and Teagan (yes, I’m being completely serious) had never seen Sedona before. Teagan (a wedding planner for adventurous couples), had just moved to Prescott from California like, the day before our shoot, because who doesn’t want to spend their first Saturday in Arizona waking up before dawn for a Sedona Adventure […]

To look for specific places for an Iceland elopement is… a wonderful and daunting task because the whole country is essentially a postcard. So instead of saying these are the best or the prettiest or the most epic places, I will say that these were two of my favorite places I saw on this trip. […]

I get versions of this question *all the time*. “What’s an elopement?” “What does it mean to elope?” “What’s this elopement stuff about anyway?” etc etc etc. A lot of elopement photographers have weighed in on this and I wanted to offer my 2 cents.  I think these are fair questions considering the term has […]

Mother nature is really the best artist; she is an architect, a sculptor, and painter and there is not a place where her artistry is more apparent than in a slot canyon. The watercolor walls, the smooth slope of the trail, there really isn’t a place that screams both “loveliness” and “adventure” so equally. If […]

In recent years elopements, adventure weddings, and adventure sessions have really taken off. I know that when I got married I had no idea adventure weddings were even a thing, and if I *had* it’s very, very likely my wedding day would have looked very different. This is sentiment I’ve heard a lot. “If I […]

I’ve mentioned before that Arizona has a way more diverse landscape that most people give it credit for. The huge sprawling Ponderosa Pine forest north of Phoenix is one of my favorite hidden gems. Especially because its home to the Mogollon Rim. Truth time: Though I love Arizona and her funky cacti and stark landscapes. […]

I love Joshua Tree. It’s such a funky place with it’s cartoon like trees and massive boulders, gorgeous light and wide yawning skies.
