Being Davina and Joel’s wedding photographer and getting to document their love was a true honor. The intentionality of their day was inspiring and their love for each other was so evident through their vows. Before their elopement day, we worked together to find the perfect locations for all their photos. Loews Ventana Canyon Resort has a beautiful waterfall where we took some portraits right after their first look. We then drove a short 8 minutes away to Sabino Canyon where Davina and Joel said their vows in the desert under the tall saguaro cacti with Mount Lemmon behind them in the distance. They were surrounded by three close friends, one who was the officiant. After their sweet ceremony, we took group photos and more couples photos. The details of this Sabino Canyon elopement included a beautiful bouquet, custom wooden vow books, gorgeous rings, and a stunning wedding dress straight out of a fairytale!
“Kalena helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect. We found her on Instagram and she was quick to respond and able to offer advice and suggestions! She worked with us on the photography package best suited for our wedding day. When we were struggling to finalize the location to say our vows, she suggested Sabino Canyon and we are SO glad she knew where to go and what works as a good Sonoran Desert back-drop. Our photos are colorful, true to life, and beautifully capture the moments from that day. See the attached photos for some examples from us! Kalena is friendly, professional, and overall a GREAT photographer. Book her for your next photographed event!!”
“We found Kalena on instagram and we were impressed with her photos so we reached out to her to get a quote for our upcoming elopement. Kalena was very accommodating for how we wanted to plan our special day. When asked for her feed back she even helped brain storm ideas which were excellent. Leading up to the day Kalena had just enough contact with us to instill confidence that she was going to be great to work with. Our elopement turned out better than we imagined and Kalena was a big reason why. When we got the photos we were blown away. Not only were they amazing photos, but she got back to us very quickly. 5/5 would recommend and we already booked her for a date next year!”
