So on Saturday, October 4th, we returned to Sedona for Michele and Jake's wedding. It was held at L'Auberge de Sedona and was selected in part for its amazing views of Sedona's famed red rocks. In the last posting of their engagement session, we mentioned Michele's fears about the weather and unfortunately it looked as though her worst fears were confirmed. As we traveled down the canyon towards Sedona all we could see in all directions was a thick blanket of clouds and heavy rain.

During the drive we speculated about how the couple must be feeling, but when we got there they were surprisingly upbeat and taking everything in stride, figuring if it couldn't be changed they might as well roll with it ... great job guys :-)!

In the end Mother Nature rewarded them, allowing them their dream destination wedding complete with red rock views. Like clockwork, the rain stopped about an hour before the wedding, giving everyone time to dry off their chairs and be seated for the ceremony. It just got better from there when we did their formals against the backdrop of Sedona and dramatic skies!

Thank you two so much. We had a great time and we are so happy things worked out for you in the weather department! Thank you too, for allowing us to interrupt you during your dinner to grab some shots (for those of you who weren't there, the photo with the red rocks bathed in sunset light) ... we think the results were well worth it, don't you :-)? Enjoy Hawaii - we are so jealous!

We would also like to say thank you to Michele and Jake's officiant, Maria Grace, of Two Hearts One Life Weddings. Maria it is always a pleasure :-)!!


On October 2nd, only two days before their wedding took place, we photographed Michele and Jake's engagement session in Sedona. They reside in Wisconsin but Michele grew up in Arizona and they wanted to have their wedding amongst the beautiful Red Rocks.

Due to the distance they decided to plan the shoot while they would be in town for the wedding. It was really nice to get to know a little more about them before the big event.

We had a great time wandering around Red Rock Crossing, including the occasional dip in Oak Creek. Clouds were rolling in and Michele made mention of the fact that they were really concerned about the possibility of rain on their wedding day ... more on that in the next posting ...
