If you haven’t been lucky enough to travel to Sedona, I totally insist you do. It’s the kind of place where casual, laid-back elegance and downright romance mix and mingle with the majestic Red Rocks and breathtaking scenery. In other words, it’s a true lover’s paradise… and the perfect place to celebrate impending “I do’s” with an engagement session captured by Amy Leah. Click here for the full gallery.
From Amy Leah Photography… When I first met Lauren and Andy, there sweet and gentle personalities really allowed me to dream up a day that personified everything they were. Words like romantic, gentle, sweet, soft, floral, organic, intimate, natural, calm, quiet all came to me as I planned out their engagement session in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. The day of the session, the sky was dreary with clouds and gave the perfect moody tint… and at certain points of the day, there would be lovely splashes of sunshine that created a dreamy glow through the trees.
With such a soft scenery set, their choice of outfits for the day played right into their love story. A flowy, white, backless maxi dress from For Love and Lemons on Lauren was an exquisite choice as she was crowned with the delicate roses adding a beautiful, romantic and poetic touch. In contrast, Andy look absolutely handsome in his suit with the laid back feel of the open collar and no tie. I loved the girlish charm of dress number two from Free People with the sweet lavender pattern on it coupled with fantastic boots and a matching fiance.
The two have an obvious love for one another that is not LOUD but sweet, soft and whispered. I am really proud of the images and how we really captured the essence of their love for one another. We had an awesome time adventuring through the humid Sedona summer day and finding different hidden locations that would showcase their love in a romantic, organic and intimate way – it was absolutely perfect. My favorite part of the session was at the very end where we did some moody shots in front of a line of trees. In the quiet, we could hear nothing but sprinkles from the light rain as Lauren and Andy embraced and really leaned into the moment. It was absolutely beautiful. Such an amazing way to bring this session to a close. Its really amazing to see a couple bloom right in front of you as you document their love. I am honored to have been a part of this moment in their love story. The two have a stunning wedding planned for this June in Maui where they will say “I Do” in an old sugar mill that was built in 1858.

I love working from home, but do you want to know one of my favorite reasons why? When a film like this one from Serendipity Cinema lands in my lap, I can watch it over and over and over without one feeling of guilt. And this, my friends, is a film you’ll want to watch over and over again. Because it’s not only a glimpse into this couples’ beautiful day, it’s a glimpse into their amazing love for each other. And what’s better than that?
From Serendipity Cinema …Elegance in nature. Kaylee and David celebrated their wedding day high atop the Scottsdale Valley at Desert Mountain. Both ceremony and reception took place in the stone courtyard of the Chiracahua Clubhouse with cocktails and dessert on the patio overlooking twinkling lights in the distance. We married two distinct design styles: glamour and organics that we called geo-glam. The bride and groom live part time in Los Angeles and have a flare for fashion, and raised in Arizona, the bride has a taste for a bohemian, natural style as well. Nestled amongst gorgeous homes lining streets with gemological names, the ceremony and reception reflected these elements. On top of shimmery nude hued sequin table linens, we blended organics such as crystals, himalayan rock salt and succulents with formal touches like gold candelabras and mercury glass. Garden Roses coupled with succulents. Deco lanterns filled with fire. Wood and sequins. The unusual coupling made for a magical evening.
