Caleda & Ryan | Sedona Engagement

When I first started my photography business, I knew that I loved two things: shooting weddings, and going on adventures. I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to combine both of those things in my work, and I am thrilled that I get to meet beautiful couples like Caleda & Ryan who love going on adventures just as much as I do. To get to their shoot location, they invited me in their Jeep and we went off roading all the way up Schnebly Hill (School of Rock flashback, anyone?) until we got to the perfect place. It was so worth it too, look how gorgeous they are!

Caleda & Ryan met while hiking Havasupai Falls, which is definitely the ultimate bucket list hike and a perfect way to start an adventurous life together. Both of them are from the Midwest and fell in love with the Arizona desert views so much that they insisted on having their wedding here. They can’t wait to share their love of the Southwest with their whole family at their wedding this fall.

The stunning views of Sedona were such a perfect backdrop for the easy-going, sweet, warm love that these two share. Caleda & Ryan love Arizona just as much as I do, and I had so much fun spending the afternoon getting to know them and their love story. I can’t wait to capture your wedding, you guys -- Congratulations!
