Eloping to Sedona

The beauty of Sedona attracts a lot of couples that want to plan intimate weddings and elopements. Every year hundreds of couples come to Sedona from across the country and world to have a special Sedona elopement or intimate wedding in Sedona with just a few of their closest family and friends.

Sedona Bride Photographers offers abridged single photographer coverage for just these kinds of weddings. We start with suggesting just the perfect location for your wedding and put together the best times for the shoot based on the time of year and location. Then, we recommend wedding officiants, hair and makeup artists, floral and restaurants so that planning your elopement is a breeze for you.

The elopement day often time starts with the tail end of prep and there is plenty of time for a beautiful ceremony and gorgeous portraits out on the red rocks. You have an amazing day, with all the sweet moments captured most importantly for you to remember but also for you to share with your family and friends back home.

Each image is individually adjusted for color and selective lightening/darkening so that when you see your full set of images in your online gallery they are beautiful and ready to print from. You can make professional prints through our fabulous print lab but you also receive a digital download link for you to have all your images post wedding.

Enchantment Resort is a gorgeous resort and tucked in Boynton Canyon. The towering red rocks makes it an ideal place to stay for your elopement. While you can check with the resort for their most current policy on having weddings at Enchantment Resort, for elopements, we’d also recommend the surrounding trails that the resort gives you access to for your ceremony.

Red Rock Crossing

Red Rock Crossing is our easy to access location for elopements or micro weddings that require an easy to get to spot with beautiful views. It is also surrounded by a beautiful array of locations for photos. From lush green tree lined Oak Creek with beautiful Cathedral Rock in the background to vistas make for dramatic locations for red rock views, it’s a location where the ceremony can be easy for the couple (and a small number of guests) to attend and can be followed up with many more photos in and directly around the areal.

Cathedral Rock

Cathedral Rock is an iconic location in Sedona. It’s no wonder that this spot is so popular for tourists and couples looking to elope in Sedona. We plan for 3-4 hours for shooting and hiking and the hiking is fairly intense in parts. It’s easy to get to the half way point where there are beautiful views without a difficult hike.

To go to the top is a bit more for adventurous couples with hiking shoes. 🙂 We don’t recommend ceremonies on the “saddle” because it can be come quite busy there with both tourists and with other photo shoots. There are specific spots off the main trail that are quieter and away from tourists along the way up that we use as intimate ceremony locations. While the “ledge” on the saddle is coveted by both tourists and photographers, there are many gorgeous spots all along the way up and on the saddle that give an array of views.

If you don’t hike often or are skittish around heights, we have other locations we can recommend for your Sedona Adventure elopement!

The red rock spires and rose colored Sedona mountains surround a couple on their elopement. A bride wearing a white dress reaches her hand back to touch her grooms face while he holds her. He's wearing a grey suit.
