Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
What a better way to begin our Arizona sessions! Olivia & Jon’s Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ was everything we wanted for a Sedona engagement session. The sunset that night was beautiful, and everything about their session made my dreams of a desert session come to life. This session was GOOD! It may not look like it, but we worked in a fairly small area. Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
Oliva & Jon were so much fun to work with. Jon was full of energy, and Olivia was super excited. They couldn’t stop giggling, and the way that Olivia looks at Jon is so sweet, and you can tell how in love these two truly are. They have been together since they were 17 & 18, so naturally, 6 years later, you’re going to be head over heels for each other.
We started with simple walking shots and ended with the classic seatbelt hug. The scenery of this session added so much to the images. We quickly switched their outfits and caught the last 10 minutes of Golden Hour on the road that led to the location. It was the best idea we had all day. Some of the most beautiful images we caught were from that portion of their session. Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
We lost light so quickly after the sun dipped behind the mountains, so we couldn’t do as much as we wanted to, but trust me, we had a beautiful amount of images. Olivia & Jon were ecstatic with the results, and I cannot wait for them to see the final gallery.
Thank you so much for allowing all of us to capture your engagement session in Sedona. Your wedding will be gorgeous, and I cannot wait to see the final images. Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs.
A LITTLE Q&A FOR THE BRIDE & GROOM
HOW DID YOU MEET?!
“We went to high school together and were friends for a while first.”
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST DATE!
“We had just started talking more and hanging out more. I invited Jon to stop by night before for my 17th birthday, and he did, and we stayed up talking all night. So we decided to go out for breakfast the next morning, and that was our first real date. We both got pancakes, and it was never really awkward for us; we were always able to talk about anything and have fun together even in the beginning.” Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
” We went to a pancake house for brunch, Jon was 18, and I was 17.”
HOW DID YOU FALL IN LOVE?
“When we did spend time together, it was always amazing. We both had hectic schedules and had a lot going outside of being together, so it worked out to respect each other’s time and space. We never got mad at the other for having something to do, which was hard to find.”
“We would both work and do our own things and hobbies, and then come together and enjoy each others’ company. We’ve always been really committed to making things work and fighting through the highs and lows, so I think we just fell in love as we both worked on building a strong foundation together because we knew we really wanted it to last.” Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
HOW DID HE PROPOSE?
“Jon proposed at home in Buffalo, on the same couch he asked me to be his girlfriend on. He had tried making all kinds of other plans that kept getting ruined by covid and the weather, so he just decided the time was right, and he proposed, and our families were able to celebrate that night with us.” Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
“He proposed in December 2020 at my parent’s house in Buffalo, NY.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR ABOUT YOUR WEDDING?
“I am most excited to have a day about our love for each other and make it officially official that we’re stuck with each other for life. It’s going to be so much fun with everyone there to celebrate. The venue is so beautiful, and Catherine of Catherine Rose Florals is so sweet and knows the flowers are my favorite part of a wedding. Hence, I’m very excited about that, and Brittany will capture the whole day in a beautiful way that we can look back on forever, so I truly can’t wait :). Jon is most excited to see everyone all together and hopefully without masks on.”
YOUR LOVE STORY IS MADE INTO A MOVIE; WHAT IS THE TITLE?
“Learning to love and learning a lot of ice cream.”
DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN 5 WORDS
“Supportive, funny, loving, adventurous, strong.”
WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT MEANS THE MOST TO BOTH OF YOU?
“Everything we have gotten to do together and all the new experiences we will get to have together too.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT EACH OTHER?!
Olivia: “My favorite thing about Jon is how even on the worst day, he still smiles and cracks jokes and makes everything lighter. He never really lets anything get him down.”
Jon: “My favorite thing about Liv is her loving and caring heart. No matter who you are or what you do, she always looks to find the best in me and anybody. She loves me no matter what and keeps me in line… something I need!”
HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A COUPLE SINCE YOU STARTED DATING?
“We’ve both matured a lot, of course. We communicate better and listen more. We know what we expect from each other, and we can talk things out when we need to. We can have fun and relax and not worry so much about other things.”
FAVORITE QUIRK ABOUT EACH OTHER?!
Olivia: “My favorite quirk about Jon is that he would rather sing whole songs himself than listen to the artist sing the song. He walks around singing and doesn’t care how he sounds.”
Jon: “My favorite quirk about Liv is her love/ obsession with ice cream. If she could, she would eat it every single night for dessert. I have eaten more ice cream in the last 6 years than in my entire life.”
IF YOU COULD SPEND 24 HOURS WITH YOUR PARTNER, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING
“We would sleep in, have a big breakfast with waffles and bacon, go for a long hike, get smoothies, nap, make dinner, go for a nighttime walk, have ice cream, and watch Netflix :)”
WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LOVED BY YOUR PARTNER?!
Olivia: “I feel most loved by Jon when he gets up before me for work and comes back in to say bye to me before he leaves, but I’m still mostly asleep, and he doesn’t want to leave, so it’s like the longest sweetest goodbye ever.”
Jon: “I feel most loved by Liv at all hours. She leaves me notes, texts me during my workday that she misses me and loves me even though I’ve only been gone 3 hours. When I get home from work, she greets me with a hug and kiss, and before bed, when we say goodnight, I can see the love in her eyes.” Engagement Session Bell Rock Sedona AZ
IF YOU COULD BE INSANELY TALENTED AT ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?!
Olivia – “I wish I was really good at rock climbing or painting or something. That would be fun.”
Jon – “I wish that I could be a better runner.”
FIRST IMPRESSION OF EACH OTHER
Olivia: “I thought Jon was so cool because he was friends with everyone and played sports, and I knew he had a “farm life.” I just thought he was the cutest and also the biggest flirt.”
Jon: “When I first saw Liv in 8th grade (she was in 7th)… the first thing I noticed was her beauty. She was “going out with,” a kid named Jeff and I went up to him a few days later and congratulated him! (;”
