Adventurous Sedona Elopement || Sedona Elopements

Tyson and Brittany had an elopement that was a bit more adventurous than most weddings. They picked one of the most gorgeous places in Sedona to get married, Merry Go Round Rock. For those visiting, this is a place on top of a gorgeous outlook, but the way there is a bit of a challenge. The smart way to get there is by taking a jeep because there are some parts of the dirt road that are complete drop offs. And yet.. I’ve seen little honda civics make it up this road! However, Tyson and Brittany did get a jeep for the ride.
We zoomed down the road, taking it a little rough and within about 10 minutes in – our jeep overheated. Totally unexpected. We pulled over and I decided to do some photos of Brittany with her florals in the river bed nearby. I figured why not work with what we have? After doing some photos of their vows and their rings, our driver started the jeep up again and we were on our way.
We drove may be 5 miles and the jeep overheated again. This time we were by a massive rock wall that actually became a gorgeous backdrop for their couples portraits. I think most would have been upset, thinking that this was a disaster – that they weren’t going to make it to the top for the gorgeous views during their ceremony. But then Ken, our reverend suggested we walk up the nearby path and take more photos up there. The view was also stunning.. We nearly decided to just do the ceremony there.
But Tyson, Brittany and I didn’t want to give up yet. Thanks to Kelsey, our lead planner she sent a visiting couple (who Jane and I had just covered their elopement the day before) to come a rescue us so we could make it to the top. We waited for a bit – but all that time gave us plenty of gorgeous photos. I enjoyed getting to know Tyson and Brittany really well, and so we endured the adventure together. We were rescued with about 45 mins of sunlight left. The top was about 10 mins up from us and we once again zoomed up in another jeep that did not overheat.
I think we were all so relieved when we made it to the top – and it was well worth it. Tyson and Brittany had their quiet elopement as the sunset behind the red rocks and their elopement became a day that they truly would never forget.

“My husband and I planned a small elopement in Sedona. I found Victoria on Instagram and loved her style. We went through the planning process without a wedding planner which proved to be difficult. Victoria was so helpful in making suggestions and pointing us into the right direction, even though I know she really didn’t have to do that as our photographer. On the day of the wedding, she was prompt in arrival and swift in ensuring that she captured everything. In our evening shoot, we went to 2 locations but looking at our pictures it appears that we went to at least 20. She has an amazing eye for photography and truly captured the spirit of our relationship. The quality is excellent and we could not be happier with how our photos turned out. Victoria is a gem.

“Our wedding was originally March 2020 and she was so great during that difficult time of unexpected rescheduling. When we finally met 2 years after our first email exchange she made us feel so comfortable and at ease.

We would 100% recommend her to anyone and would be thrilled to have her take our photos again.”
