Stephanie and Nathan's relationship is rooted in the Grand Canyon, so it seemed only fitting that they would choose to begin their married life together there as well.  These two were married on September 6th, 2014 at Shoshone Point.  It was still monsoon season and in true monsoon season fashion, rain danced around the canyon throughout the afternoon.  By the time guests began arriving, umbrellas were a must and it looked as though the couples' ceremony might be washed out.  At that moment the canyon put on an astonishing show as the sun peaked through, spotlighting the canyon below ... and in answer to your soon-to-be question, yes, the full double rainbow in the photo below was real!!  It left everyone speechless!!  No words could truly describe the sight.  It was one of the most beautiful moments we have ever witnessed in nature.

So, as the ceremony began, the rain cleared away and Stephanie and Nathan had their beautiful wedding on the rim of the Grand Canyon!  After, the canyon continued to dazzle as it changed colors from orange to red and finally to a lovely, soft pastel pink as the last light of day faded away!  What an amazing and memorable wedding day for these two!

Thank you Stephanie and Nathan for having us as your wedding photographers!  We had such a great time being part of your big day!!

We are so fortunate to be based in Arizona where we occasionally have the opportunity to photograph a wedding somewhere as majestic as the Grand Canyon!  And no spot at the south rim is more awe-inspiring than Shoshone Point.

This is where Abby and David, who drove all the way out from Iowa, chose to have there intimate wedding.  Standing at what looks like the edge of the Earth, they said their vows in front of their closest family and friends, while David's three adorable boys took part.  Their big day took place at the height of monsoon season, but couldn't have been more beautiful.  The monsoon gave them the gift of stunning cloud formations with no rain ... just perfect!

6-6-11 Grand Canyon Wedding Photographer HTWed00.jpg

Heather and Tim had an intimate ceremony with their two daughters as witnesses and it was beautiful.  We love weddings like this ... the couple really gets to spend quality time with the people they love the most in a spectacular setting, pledging their love for one another.  It is just so moving.  The ceremony took place at the Grand Canyon at Shoshone Point.  In our opinion there is no more lovely a spot at the South Rim than Shoshone Point!  The wedding was held the first week in June and it was a bit blustery and cold ... it can still get cold at the South Rim, even at that time of the year.  Everyone held together wonderfully though and endured being a bit uncomfortable to get some amazing photographs and to have a sunset ceremony ... the light was SPECTACULAR for it ... WOW!!!  We also have to commend Tim, who is a little scared of heights, for going to some uncomfortable places in the name of good photography ... thank you so much :-)!!  Enjoy the sneak peak ... you were all wonderful to work with!

Perhaps one of our favorite couples, we couldn't resist blogging Kristina and Justin's wedding from this past August at Shoshone Point, Grand Canyon!  Days like this and views like these are why we LOVE living in Arizona!  Their wedding took place at the height of the summer monsoons and there are few places more spectacular to witness this annual weather event than the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Every direction offered it's own unique drama being played out through an ever-changing mosaic of light, color and clouds ... simply stunning!

I love the shots with the skys & especially with the rainbow. So beautiful. :)

We have so many weddings and shoots to still share from this past spring and summer and this is one of them.  Anu and Adam live in London and chose to have their wedding at one of the most spectacular places on Earth - the Grand Canyon!  On top of that, they chose the most spectacular spot in the Grand Canyon to say "I Do" - Shoshone Point!  The wedding was held in early June on a stunningly beautiful day and we were so pleased to be a part of it all.  Guests came from all over the US and as far away as Europe and India.  Anu's parents made their first trip from India to the US for their daughter's wedding and wow, what a place to experience for their journey here!  Thank you both and thank you to Yvonne Chavez for referring us for this wedding and for doing such a lovely job as usual :-)!

You can never go wrong with the Grand Canyon. I love these photos. The couple is soooo adorable & Congrats to the both of you. :) I really love your wedding photos. Breath taking & just fantastic. As always, Sierra Blanco never fails to amaze me.

My best friend in the whole world :-), Daniela, came out from her home in Chicago to help me out with a wedding (more on that in the next posting) in November.  She was only here for 3 days and it was the first time she had ever been out west.  She is originally from Brazil and given the fact that her time spent in the US has always been on the East Coast or in the Midwest, the Wild West was a little different for her.  She loved it from the moment her plane touched down in Phoenix!  Given the short time span I had to show her around, I had to be selective about where to take her.  The obvious choice was the Grand Canyon, so off we went, straight from the airport to the canyon.  She was mesmerized, as most people are who see it for the first time!  Here are a few shots we took while we were there.

 

Daniela and I at my favorite tree :-)!

This is probably my favorite shot that I have ever taken at the Canyon.  I love the mixture of the mood of the dark storms in the canyon and the beautiful spot of light illuminating her face ... perfect!

Now that I am finally caught up on my wedding postings, I have a chance to post some personal stuff, and it has been accumulating so get ready :-).

 

Back in April my friend, Phuong, came to visit me.  We have been friends for a very long time and I hadn't seen her in 10 years, so it was a wonderful visit.  She stayed for almost 5 weeks and in that time we just had to make her play dress-up and do a couple of trash-the-dress shoots at some fabulous Arizona locals!

 

We had an absolute blast doing these shoots and quite a bit of planning went into them.  We wanted them to be very haute couture with heavy makeup, sexy stockings, costume jewelry, a really hip black wig with blue highlights mixed in, oh ... and some peacock feathers thrown in as a headdress for good measure :-).  Our backdrops would be the Grand Canyon and the Superstition Mountain Range.  The Grand Canyon shoot was amazing and Phuong was so excited to shoot there, but that excitement was tempered as the sun began to drop ... it was freezing cold.  You would never know it by the photos though.  She looked stunning in every image!!

 

Stay tuned for our month-long adventure as "Tina and Phuong take on Arizona" - coming soon!

 

The Grand Canyon Shoot ... always love the wind at the Canyon!!

How fun!!! That dress was well spent money, Tina!! My better half was totally spellbound by the Superstitions, still talking about those mountains weekly! I was more into Grand Canyon, that is Yaki point, isnt it?!? I can see the trails we walked, both South Kaibab and Tonto... Great shots!
