Stormy Elopement on Merry Go Round Rock in Sedona

Merry Go Round Rock is a famous and gorgeous location for adventurous people to discover. Here in Sedona, Arizona... there are hundreds of amazing places to see. But for people that don't want to hike very far, Merry Go Round Rock is a great place to go.

The only way to get to Merry Go Round Rock is by a high clearance jeep. So you can rent one, or we can provide one. Once you get to the top... it's only a ten minute hike to one of the most beautiful vistas in North America.

On one recent occasion... we had a couple scheduled to go up Schnebly Hill Road to Merry Go Round Rock. But it was on a very stormy day. I asked the couple how they felt about it and told them they would probably get the best pictures they could ever imagine. Storms cause crazy drama. But when you have a storm over an amazing back drop... you get epic pictures! I guess all the other photographers and couples booked that day were too scared to go, because we had the whole mountain to ourselves. Check out these images below. It was an Adventure Elopement, so we married them on the tip top of Merry Go Round Rock. They had an absolute blast!

(It was a little dangerous climbing down to some of the spots I captured this couple. I'm one of the few photographers willing to take the risk. And we're still the only photographers that carry Professional Outdoor Lighting every where we go. Otherwise, the shots below would be impossible)
