It is no small task to get to the top of Schnebly Hill in Sedona, Arizona. We had to rent a jeep and hold onto hope that we would make it to the top before the sun set. It was definitely the ride of our lives. We drove three to four miles up a very, very broken dirt road going 30 miles per hour. Meanwhile, I’m holding tightly to Leslea’s wedding dress. If we hadn’t had a seat belt, we would have flown out of the back of the jeep.
Once we made it to the top, we had about 20 minutes to shoot in the most perfect, golden light, and then it was black as night. We drove back down the road in pitch blackness, shivering and laughing so hard. It was so wonderful.
I wish I would have had about an hour more at the top of that mountain to do more and take my time. But I didn’t, and I’m very happy with how these came out, as fast as it all happened.
I’m thankful that I have such amazing clients who would do crazy things for me (and for themselves). <3
Enjoy. And yes, this looks like either Lord of the Rings or The Garden of Eden.
