A uniquely special and memorable Tlaquepaque wedding

One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is getting to incorporate unique aspects and moments into a couple’s special day that are characteristic of the couple themselves. Caris and Nate are lovers of exploration and the outdoors. Nature and adventure have played a huge role in their relationship. So, when it came time to plan their wedding, it was important to include an experience that was special to them. They had visited Sedona prior to their wedding and fell in love with the splendor of the red rocks. They chose to have a small and intimate Tlaquepaque wedding in the magical courtyard, surrounded by close friends and family. 

An intimate evening surrounded by loved ones

This Tlaquepaque wedding was small and intimate, but uniquely special. It reminded me of another micro-wedding I photographed in Whitefish, MT – the entire day was a family affair and everyone was involved. I was simply in awe of how adored Caris and Nate were by their loved ones! Everyone celebrated them over a delicious taco dinner and an energetic dance party that extended late into the evening. The toasts were heartfelt, the dancing was full of love and joy, and the atmosphere cultivated was deeply humbling. 

A memorable day-after session at Cathedral Rock

Caris and Nate were so personally moved by the scenery of this location, so we decided to venture out to the red rocks the next day in their wedding clothes. I captured some incredible and memorable photos! It was such an awe-inspiring experience! We hiked one of Sedona’s most beloved trails for some sunset photos. Surrounded by breathtaking rocks, they honored their commitment to one another and their journey into marriage. What a privilege to take part in Caris and Nate’s wedding at Tlaquepaque as well as their Cathedral Rock day-after session. It was such a momentous experience getting to capture these two as they stepped into a new season together as husband and wife.
