Horseshoe Bend Elopement

This Horseshoe Bend Elopement had it all – a bumpy outdoor jeep ride, a hike through a stunning slot canyon, cliffside vows, and a picture-perfect sunset.

We started out in the beautiful slot canyons just outside of Page, Arizona.  We took a private jeep tour which drove us out to a lesser known slot canyon.  It was a fun and slightly sandy 20 minute ride, and so worth the extra effort to get out to this deserted canyon.

We even turned a corner and found a heart on the wall!

The slot canyons are a completely unique experience.  Every time I go, I am continually in awe of how nature made these twisted narrow canyons.

This is probably one of the most unique places in the world to take your bridal portraits.  We took advantage of these winding canyons to take a few portraits.

After we finished our walk through the slot canyons, it was time to head out to Horseshoe Bend for B & R’s elopement ceremony.

About twenty of their closest friends and family traveled out from Texas to watch them say their vows.  B & R wanted to have an elopement-style wedding, but also wanted their family to be able to be there on their big day.

For them, this was the perfect combination of an adventure elopement and a more traditional larger wedding.

These two made their wedding day completely their own, and I was fortunate enough to be able to capture it.
