Ryan + Sam / Red Rock State Park Elopement / Sedona Wedding Photographer

Posted on Posted in Destination Elopement, Destination Engagement, Destination Wedding, Weddings

Have you ever heard of Sedona? When I was first planning my trip here, I hadn't. Sedona is in the middle of Arizona, in a little tourist-y town that reminds me surprisingly of Coeur d'Alene. There is an amazing Juice shop on main street, and all the coffee shops and restaurants have this amazing view of some of the most beautiful rock formations I've ever seen.

Ryan and Sam have been traveling for awhile now, and it was fitting they chose such a beautiful backdrop for their elopement. Sam had such an infectious personality, it was impossible not to laugh while she was telling you about her adventures. Ryan is a calm, steady guy who enjoys drone photography and In-and-Out Burger. It's funny when you see two people next to each other, and somehow they both become MORE because of the other one. You get that feeling immediately from Ryan and Sam, and it was amazing watching them light each other up in Sedona.

Meli + Ryan / Yosemite National Park Engagement / California Wedding Photographer

Posted on Posted in Destination Engagement, Engagements, National Park

Meli and Ryan are totally my ideal kind of couple. Happy, adventurous, and deeply in love. From the beginning, they were so on board to have their engagement shoot in Yosemite National Park. And boy, was it a day to remember. We hiked around the falls and eventually up to Tunnel View, all the while talking about their new puppy, how Ryan used to basically be a cowboy, and how much Meli enjoyed being a hair and make up artist.

It had always been a dream of mine to go to Yosemite. But, I'm not going to lie, I'm a little bit spoiled by scenery in the PNW. I thought Yosemite might be hyped up a bit. I'm telling you now, it's absolutely not. If you ever have a chance, GO because there's nowhere else like it in the world. So while you dream about Northern California road trips, please enjoy looking at these two beautiful souls.
