It is always a pleasure to be a part of someone’s engagement, to take photos from a distance and to try to capture that special moment is a fun challenge – to find the best place to propose at the grand canyon.
On this particular evening, Shoshone Point was not the place that I usually experienced as a local. It has become quite the superhighway of “secret” Grand Canyon locations. Trying to keep the moment sacred and special I did my best to communicate to Eric that if he could walk ways from the point, I could photograph this moment anywhere and would follow him to a more secluded spot on the rim.
We struggled to communicate with each other from a far but finally Eric led Ursula to a little sunlit point to the west of Shoshone, and it happened. It was beautiful and I’m so glad that I got to play “fly on the wall” for it. I love proposal photos at Shoshone Point.
