Meet your Sedona Elopement Photographer
Hi, I’m Victoria!
I have the amazing job of photographing people in love. I created this Sedona Elopement at Cathedral Rock for adventurous and nature-loving couples.
The couples I have met through my work are dedicated and put a lot of love into their commitment to one another. Just like them, I put love and dedication into my commitment to provide you not only with the special moments from the day, but my desire to be a part of your day while capturing all the magic.
I’m here to make sure you’re comfortable and have fun during our shoot.
I’m here to help guide you with poses and planning your Sedona Elopement at Cathedral Rock! 🙂 This is about you & your day.
I want to be there to feel each moment with you & be a part of your amazing elopement day.
I’m currently based in Flagstaff, Arizona, and have been shooting weddings for 8 years!
I love to travel and see new things! I consider myself a true southwest girl. The deserts draw me in & the western sunsets steal my heart. I love being outdoors, and seeing a bride and groom in these stunning landscapes during their Sedona Elopement at Cathedral Rock steals my breath away. Let’s feel the wind in our hair and do some killer dance moves in the desert.
I can’t wait to meet you and get to know your story!

This hike requires a level of physical fitness. If you are overweight, don’t work out, you may experience difficulty or injury on this hike preventing you from being able to do it.
Plan your Sedona Elopement at Cathedral Rock ahead! Sedona is a tourist town, please plan to leave with at least 20 mins of extra time for traffic and keep an eye on road conditions to ensure you arrive on time for your Sedona Elopement.
Prepack your wedding attire, and hiking attire the day before.
Your clothes will get dirty, which is why I advise bringing hiking clothes that you can sweat in and get dirt on, while your wedding attire stays clean in your backpack.
Having a backpack is necessary to keep your hands free for this hike.
