Amanda + Dago | Grand Canyon Elopement


I love weddings and everything that comes with them (this should not be a surprise to you since I am, in fact, a wedding photographer), but you know what? There’s absolutely nothing like a small, intimate, beautiful elopement like Amanda’s & Dago’s special day. First of all, they got married at the Grand Canyon, and how do you beat that backdrop? Second of all, their day was so intimate, authentic, and genuine. Also, Amanda and Dago are expecting their first child, and the bride was absolutely glowing on her wedding day. Pure beauty all around.

The bride and groom met at a friend's band's show through the maid of honor, so it was fitting that the maid of honor helped plan their engagement! Dago proposed at the World of Color in Disneyland (happiest place on earth indeed, am I right?), and it was a complete and utter shock to Amanda. The best kind of surprise!

Amanda is beautiful, intelligent, and caring, and all of that was so evident on their wedding day. She handled all the stress of the wedding with ease and grace, all while carrying a child and looking incredible. And would you just look at that dress? Absolutely amazing. 

Amanda & Dago had the most incredible, sweet wedding, and I’m so honored to have captured the beginning of their chapter as both husband and wife and as parents. I have no doubt that they will be sweet, caring, and loving parents to their little babe, and I know that their love will create a solid foundation for their growing family. Congratulations you guys! Thank you for letting me share your day with you!
