So you’ve decided you want to get married in Sedona, Arizona…

Now what?

Choosing a local Sedona wedding photographer who specializes in helping couples in and around Sedona is the first step to ensuring your experience and memories reflect everything you’re dreaming up!

As one of the most beautiful locations in the country, it’s no wonder Sedona is at the top of the list for many couples choosing a destination wedding, elopement, or vow renewal. From enchanting views of red rock formations, to local vendor options to support your vision, planning is significantly easier than many of the other epic desert landscapes you see across the southwest.

Benefits of hiring a Sedona wedding photographer

  • First hand knowledge of the area, including both the popular and locals secret “best spots” for portraits!
  • Experience with how busy areas are, educated estimates on foot traffic each day, and help navigating the limited parking and shuttle systems!
  • Relationships with local businesses and vendors from florists, hair and makeup artists, planners, officiants, guided activities, venues, where to eat, and more!
  • Access to backup plans should the need arise- because we all want a bit of extra peace of mind on our wedding day!

Meet your Sedona Wedding & Elopement Photographer

Hi! I’m Shannon Durazo, and I would be thrilled to photograph your Sedona Wedding, or if you are looking for something a little more wild, your Sedona Elopement Photographer!

I moved to Arizona 20 years ago after meeting and falling in love with my desert dwelling husband. For me, Sedona was love at first sight- the perfect mix of desert and mountains, with a touch of magic that is hard to explain without feeling it for yourself. I never tire of exploring the gorgeous red rock formations and winding trails between manzanita and barking juniper trees. From the well known- more travelled trails, to hidden caves tucked away in canyon walls, I’ve spent thousands of hours wandering the Arizona desert both in my personal time, and helping couples live out their wedding and elopement dreams.
