You’ve decided on Sedona, Arizona for your wedding celebration!

Now what?

Choosing a local Sedona wedding photographer who specializes in helping couples elope in Sedona is one of the first steps to ensuring your experience and memories reflect the vision of red rock enchantment you are dreaming of!

As one of the most breathtaking locations in the country, it’s no wonder Sedona is at the top of the list for many couples choosing a destination wedding, adventurous elopement, or vow renewal. There is something magical about being surrounded by the uplifting energy that encapsulates our beautiful high desert paradise. From breathtaking views of red rock formations, to easy to work with local vendor options to support your vision, planning a Sedona wedding is significantly easier than many of the other epic desert landscapes you see across the southwest.

Creating a wedding experience that Celebrates your Love!

What brings you joy as a couple?

Do that! If you love a day relaxing, enjoying the view from your five star resort as you say your “I do’s”, then that should be how you celebrate your wedding day. If you prefer to get out in nature and add some Sedona red rock ombre to the bottom of your dress as you hike up to epic peaks overlooking the picturesque landscapes, then let’s plan that day!

Embrace the freedom to have a day that anyone who truly knows you will look at and say – “yeah, that fit them to a T.”

This sounds exactly like what I’m looking for for my wedding!

Reviews from past couples…

I can’t believe how fortunate my husband and I are to have found and worked with Shannon. I happened to find her on an elopement photographer website and instantly fell in love with her photography. Not only that, but when I inquired as to cost and what she recommended for my specific day she was quick to respond, kind, and honest with her suggestions and advice. Shannon really does think about every last detail and made the entire process so seamless by asking the right questions and truly understanding the goals we had in mind for our special day. Not only that but she was able to quickly make adjustments when we discovered that some of our older guests could not walk as far as we anticipated. If you have the opportunity to do something exciting and different for your wedding, you should absolutely choose Shannon for your special day. Also did I mention she’s just an overall incredible human being? Thank you Shannon for everything 🙏🏼

We chose Shannon as the photographer for our Sedona wedding based on her stunning portfolio and also our initial chat. Shannon combines professional with anything-goes-adventure! She (and her assistant son!) was so much fun to work with. Her talent with finding the right angle, lighting, and pose is unmatched. My husband talked about hiring her the next time we cross country for another adventure shoot!

~ Megan N.

Shannon was an absolute pleasure to work with – I couldn’t have pulled off my proposal without her! From planning around shuttle schedules to making sure our hike timing coincided with excellent lighting, Shannon thought of everything to make sure that our game plan went off as smoothly as possible.

She is an incredibly talented photographer and our engagement photos are absolutely stunning. Shannon goes the extra mile whether that’s hauling camera equipment up a mountain or making sure no one wanders into your photos! We would highly recommend her to anyone, especially if you’re looking for an expert adventure photographer who can help you capture a special moment in the great outdoors.

Hi! I’m Shannon- and I want to be your Sedona Wedding & Elopement Photographer

Hi! I’m Shannon Durazo, and I would be thrilled to be your your Sedona Wedding, Elopement, Vow Renewal, or Engagement Session Photographer! I know you have a wide range of choices for your Sedona wedding photography, so I want to say thank you for considering me to capture your special moments.

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 vistas 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 willdest wedding and elopement dreams.
