Who can argue that Arizona doesn’t have some of the most gorgeous scenery? Sedona specifically is one gift after another in every visual direction.
Adding a little adventure to a couple’s session can make for very pretty pictures. This couple happens to be getting married at a beach in Mexico – so Sedona is a completely different visually. We recently had a couple having their wedding in the desert and we photographed them together on a beach in Malibu. The contrast is fun and these engagement type photos become a marker in time for the couple, a different set of photos than their wedding photos. Plain and simple, whatever your vision is – these photos will be with you forever, just like your wedding photos, so why not make them special.
But special is different things to different people. Some clients want epic scenery, others want to be sitting on their comfy couch together, hanging out in a book store, hiking, riding bikes, enjoying a glass of wine, picking out their Christmas tree together in NYC, walking the beach, sitting at a cafe in Paris. Whatever speaks to you as a couple.
I guess my overall point is that a couple should have their photos taken doing something or being part of something that means something to them. And knowing this makes these photos even more special.
