Cathedral Rock Sedona AZ Engagement Session | Marissa & Curtis
On a beautiful fall day in Arizona, we met Marissa and Curtis for their engagement session at Cathedral Rock. They had suggested the location, and it has quickly become one of my favorites in Sedona – you’ll soon see why! Marissa and Curtis initially met at Regis University in Denver, Colorado, where Curtis played basketball and Marissa played soccer. They connected at a mutual friend’s house party and became an item not long after. Curtis proposed in Marissa’s home town at the park up the street from her childhood home. “We had family pictures scheduled and he had contacted my parents and the photographer so they were prepared for the moment.” He ended up proposing in front of her entire family, which I love! Marissa & Curtis will be together for 8 years by the time they tie the knot this fall!
With all of this in mind, it’s safe to say I was pretty excited for their engagement session! Sedona showed off for these two, with sweeping views and vivid colors throughout the breathtaking landscape. Marissa & Curtis arrived dressed up, and their outfits perfectly complemented the red rocks. AND, to make things even more beautiful, Marissa brought a giant bouquet along for photos.. so you can imagine I was pretty excited! Between the giant bouquet and Marissa’s sleek white dress, hikers kept stopping and congratulating them on their wedding. I can understand the mistake- these two were stunning and Sedona is a common elopement spot! But for now, it was just time for Curtis and Marissa to celebrate their engagement in style- and the entire session left me giddy for their wedding day to come. They tie the knot in November, and I can hardly wait! 🙂
