Desert Elopement in Sedona, Arizona

Desert Elopement in Sedona, Arizona

serving hawaii and worldwide

When Whitney and David knew their Hawai’i elopement wasn’t going to be a reality on the date they originally wanted this year, we were stoked that they had us capture their elopement in the desert of Arizona instead!⁣

There were so many sweet elements to their day, but some that tugged at my heartstrings were the stories they shared with us about their sweet dog, Bailey, who recently passed after twelve years.⁣

Bailey was Whitney’s dog before she met David. However, when David entered into Whitney’s life, Bailey became a huge part of their story together. You could tell how special this sweet dog was to their relationship, especially when they shared their favorite memories of Bailey with tears in their eyes and by the items they brought with them like Bailey’s favorite blanket and collar.⁣

Whitney even mentioned that after David had proposed, it was like Bailey knew Whitney was going to be taken care of and Bailey could finally let go. 😭😭😭⁣

Ryan and I feel so honored to get to know our couples and capture elopement days like this — not just photographing our couples amidst beautiful landscapes but capturing the small details that make up a couple’s incredible love story.
