Michael and Katelyn

Ohh Sedona…this place is one that I had always dreamed of going and last week that dream finally came true! We were visiting our friends Amy and Jordan in Arizona and they had planned for us to make the two hour drive to Sedona…and that’s when Katelyn suggested we take portraits! I couldn’t say yes fast enough…and I think you’ll see why! Shooting in new places is always so inspiring for me, but especially when it’s a place with beautiful scenery like this! The light and colors were almost too perfect and we all had so much fun seeing the sights and shooting at so many incredible spots…some of these places literally took my breath away!

And of course it helps when you have a really incredible and beautiful couple to photograph. I’m not sure there are words to describe how amazing, fun and giving these two are! Katelyn’s smile always lights up a room and I love that she is one of the smartest people I know, but doesn’t take life too seriously. I’m so thankful for their friendship and for the fun memories we all made together last week! It was such a blessing to spend time with friends in such a pretty place and my heart is so full. I hope you enjoy my favorites from this shoot…and if you’ve never visited Sedona, definitely add it to your bucket list!
