This stunning location holds a special place in the hearts of the couple, as they once lived in Sedona and wanted their engagement session to serve as a beautiful reminder of their time there.

Caitlyn and Tommy’s love story are one filled with adventure and travel SO SEDONA ONLY MADE SENSE.

Although they attended high school together in Boston, their romance didn’t bloom until much later. After dating for a couple of years, they embarked on a memorable road trip across the country with their furry companion. Equally important, their journey led them to Scottsdale, Arizona, where Tommy planned a surprise trip to Mexico and proposed to Caitlyn. Seeking respite from the cold East Coast weather, they relocated to Arizona, with plans to return to Boston for their wedding in May 2024

Choosing the Perfect Desert Engagement Location in Arizona

Sedona is renowned for its awe-inspiring landscapes, making it a challenge to select the perfect backdrop for an engagement session.

It has always been my personalized approach to ensure that we find the BEST location for your needs.

Without a doubt, part of the way that I do this is by sending my couples a questionnaire. This helps guide clients in selecting the most suitable trail based on their hiking skills, comfort with heights, and desired experience.

Sure there are ALOT of incredible spots.
But, finding the ones that are best for YOU is most important.

Exploring the Sedona Courthouse Butte Trail

One of the couple’s favorite spots for their engagement session was Courthouse Butte Trail. This 2.2-mile trail offers captivating views and is part of the 3.3-mile loop around Bell Rock. Visitors can conveniently park at the Courthouse Vista lot, which also connects to the Bell Rock Pathway. What makes Bell Rock particularly fascinating is that it is a Sedona vortex, known for its strong flow vortex energy.

VORTEXES

Whether one is spiritual or not, Sedona’s vortexes hold a certain allure.

These energetic sites are believed to bring about spiritual healing, positive energies, and intensified emotions. Bell Rock, being a vortex, adds an extra layer of significance to an engagement session. Couples can receive blessings for their love and recharge their connection and commitment before embarking on their lifelong journey together.

Even for those who may not subscribe to the spiritual aspects, the unique nature of a vortex experience adds an element of wonder to the session.

BREATHTAKING LANDSCAPE

Again, Sedona’s landscape is nothing short of breathtaking, offering a 360-degree view of stunning red rocks.

In addition, Courthouse Butte Trail, located near the entrance to Sedona, provides an ideal setting for engagements. I recommend starting at the Courthouse Butte Vista Lot and simply walking along the trail to begin capturing beautiful moments.

Why Choose the Sedona Courthouse Butte Trail for Your Engagement Session

One of the advantages of Courthouse Butte Trail is its relatively lower foot traffic compared to other popular hikes in Sedona, such as Cathedral Rock.

This makes it easier to find a peaceful and secluded spot to document your love.

To avoid crowds, it’s advisable to plan your visit during weekdays, as parking lots tend to fill up quickly during peak seasons. Moreover, this trail offers stunning Sedona views without requiring extensive hiking, making it suitable for couples who may not be avid hikers.

Outfit Inspiration for a Sedona Engagement Session:

Caitlyn and Tommy’s outfits were perfect for Sedona!

Caitlyn wore a light blue dress from Alar’D State located right in North Scottsdale at Scottsdale Quarter. Tommy wore a dark blue, long sleeve button-up with dark pants. Furthermore, I always recommend for couples if one couple is in a lighter color that the other person is in a dark color.

Solids are always my go-to and always capture the best

One thing to think about with Sedona, the backdrop is busy itself, so wearing a solid color always makes you pop and photograph the best!
