I pulled into a small parking lot just off a long winding one-lane road somewhere outside of the bustling tourist city of Sedona, Arizona. The drive to Bell Rock for Mario & Alejandra’s engagement session was one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen! It’s no wonder Sedona is a huge attraction! One of my favorite things about Arizona is the large variety of different landscapes. We’ve got the red rocks of Sedona, the cacti-filled valley, the snow-tipped mountains of Flagstaff, the pines of Payson, and so much more! I had visited Sedona numerous times before this, but had never ventured outside of the main city area.
AND WOW! The views at Bell Rock in Sedona are nothing short of incredible! With this also being my first time photographing in Sedona, it was so exciting to meet up with Mario and Alejandra, one of my sweet couples getting married this year!
Mario and Alejandra are one of the nicest couples (like ever), they love Jesus, and we connected so well together from the beginning! The way they interacted, the way he was protective over her, and the way she looked at him just made me love them so much more! They are high school sweethearts, just like my husband and I, which is rare to find these days! Their young love reminded me so much of my own love story, and it felt like we just instantly “clicked”. When Alejandra mentioned they’d love to have their engagement photos done in Sedona, the wheels in my photographer brain started spinning. I started researching the best spots with the best views, and Bell Rock seemed to be the place that kept coming up! I am so honored that Mario and Alejandra trusted me with their engagement photos and eventually their wedding photos in November! This sweet couple paired with the beautiful red rock views were a PERFECT match!
