Elopement on top of Cathedral Rock // Sedona, Arizona

Alexa & Dalton wanted the ultimate elopement on top of Cathedral Rock in Sedona, Arizona.

I love that they actually wanted to have their ceremony on top of this gorgeous rock. They had found a pastor willing to hike it & even brought Dalton’s mom along for the journey.
We traveled up the mountain together, each huff and puff closer to the top.
Once we reached the top, we gathered their details together and captured it all as the subtle January breeze cooled us off from the hike.

They shared a first look, it was Dalton’s first time seeing Alexa in her dress 🙂
The ceremony began, with only a few onlookers. Dalton’s mom watched from the sideline as the two shared their vows.
When Dalton shared his, we were all in tears, him included. He said everything from the heart.

Alexa professed her love to him and they exchanged rings.
They had a perfect moment to share their first kiss as husband and wife, including a champagne pop to celebrate!
We captured them all along the rim of the top of Cathedral Rock with a beautiful sunset to end the evening as their first day as husband and wife.
The first person they called, was grandma, who called it immediately.
Alexa’s question: “Guess what we just did!”
“You got married!”
Her shock and awe was the perfect reaction seeing the views they had for their ceremony.

It was all just the way it was meant to be.

Alexa’s advice for future brides:
“Plan your wedding based on what is going to be enjoyable for YOU.”

“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. If you are looking for a down to earth and talented photography, choose White Desert Photography!”

Victoria is amazing behind the camera. I am usually really camera shy but I was so comfortable. It literally felt like a DREAM! We enjoyed each breath taking moment!”

“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.”
