Kelly and Tom traveled across the country from New York to have their Adventure Session in the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, but that wasn’t enough for them … they wanted a true adventure, one to remember!
This led us to plan an epic hike to one of the most stunning locations in Sedona, the saddle of Cathedral Rock! To reach the top, though heavily traveled, is not for the faint of heart. The hike is relatively short at just over one mile in each direction, but with and elevation gain of almost 800 feet in that short span and sections of smooth, vertical rock that must be traversed with no climbing aid, it gets dicey in spots and requires a lot of stamina. Once at the top, all that trepidation melts away in the face of such spectacular grandeur as you stand eye-to-eye with this famous monolith nearly a thousand vertical feet above the Sedona floor.
This couple was definitely up for the adventure and we had an amazing time hanging out with them, talking all things travel and photographing their Adventure Session. Plus, we get so much joy out of showing people places they have never seen before and watching the looks of wonder and awe on their faces as they take it all in … that is one of the best parts of being Adventure Elopement Photographers!
