I love my job as a Grand Canyon engagement photographer!
Okay… not going to lie… this was cold! These guys were so brave and made it look It wasn’t! @aigner_renee_ killed it in heels and the snow. Recently, Walter and Aigner(Ag-née like French! ) we’re recently engaged. They met at her mom’s bar and she had the biggest crush on him (Can you blame her?!) she would have his *non alcoholic* drink ready for him time after time, for years. Until… she decided to look him up on Facebook. Soon after they were #inseparable.
Winter at Grand Canyon might be cold but truth be told, it’s my favorite time of the year. Generally, its quieter. Proposal shoots might be shorter, when it’s cold less is more. But the canyon always looks amazing with a little bit of snow. Most people are unaware that the South Rim of Grand Canyon is 7,000ft above sea level. This means it can be chilly even in the wintertime but if you can rally, I promise it will be worth it.
Get a cozy room right on the rim of the canyon. The El Tovar hotel is amazing but it might be hard to get a room with a view. The hotel was built in 1905 and the architect decided to build it perpencicular to Grand Canyon to “get people out of their rooms”. If you are interested in a room with a view, I recommend Kachina or Thunderbird lodges. Winter is easier to get a room last minute but try grandcanyonlodges.com as soon as you start planning your trip.
