Our associate photographer services are a fantastic option for couples who are looking for high-quality photography services at a reasonable price. An associate photographer is a professional photographer who works with White Desert Photography and is trained and skilled in capturing those unforgettable wedding moments. They are mentored by Victoria, our senior photographer, and have extensive experience and knowledge in capturing Sedona weddings, elopements and engagement sessions.
Couples who choose to work with associate photographers can expect to receive the same level of professionalism, expertise, and creativity. Associate photographers are often able to offer more flexible scheduling options, which can be beneficial for clients who have busy schedules or require photography services on short notice.
Here's the next steps!
An adventure session is adding a location to your session that usually takes more time to get to.
Some spots require a hike, some require a jeep ride.
I charge more because of the planning involved and the extra time to get to the locations.
These spots are so epic & totally worth it! A typical adventure session is about a three-hour excursion experience.
Adventure Fees are $300 for any location that takes more than 1 hour round trip to get to and Jeep Rentals for a 2 hour round trip private excursion are $700.
Victoria began working as a wedding planner assistant in 2014. The position helped her realize her love for weddings and understand how weddings are planned and coordinated from behind the scenes.
For the next two years, she began shooting elopements on her own and assisting with other photographers while she obtained her photography degree from Northern Arizona University.
In 2018, Victoria started White Desert Photography and is now grown into a team of artists ready to capture your day!
Victoria has worked with each of her team members at numerous weddings and trusts her team to create everlasting memories.

“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!”
“Totally WORTH IT! Highly recommend!
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.”
“We hired her for our engagements, bridals and wedding day and we absolutely LOVED having her to capture these special moments. Victoria, is personable yet professional, and by the end of these shoots we felt she was a dear friend.”
