This young couple eloped at Shoshone Point on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

I specialize in working with young couples wanting a photographer for a simple outdoor wedding.

For this wedding it was just the bride and groom, their two friends and myself. 

One of the friends conducted the ceremony and we all had a memorable day!

Many couples travel across the country and even around the world to get married at the Grand Canyon. 

This couple came from the east to elope. They had a close friend act as the minister. 

They also put together their own props to make for some fun pictures - such as the wedding banner above.

Most couples like to get married around sunset.  Typically it is best to arrive at the site 2 hours before the sun sets.

This allows time for pre-ceremony pics, the ceremony and some post-ceremony sunset pictures.

This young British couple eloped at the Grand Canyon and hired me to shoot their wedding on the edge! The best part of eloping is there is no pressure to get to the reception.

It's time just to relax and watch the sunset over the Grand Canyon! This was definitely one of my favorite photo shoots!

Lipan Point at the Grand Canyon has no facilities so if you are planning more than one outfit for your wedding or engagement photographs,

you will need travel 2 1/2 miles to Desert View to change clothes.

This couple brought their own portable changing station to switch between their traditional Thai wedding outfits and their American wedding clothes.

Also be sure to bring hiking shoes/sneakers in order to get out on Lipan Point. The five minute walk cannot be done in heels!

About getting married at the Grand Canyon

Be aware that to get married at the Grand Canyon, you need to apply for a permit with the park service.

Lipan point is a popular spot to get married because of the photographic opportunities both up and down the Canyon.

Lipan point is also quieter since tour buses are not allowed to stop there.

However it is only suitable for really small parties, like couples that elope.

If you have a larger wedding party, consider one of the other viewpoints.

Shoshone point is a great spot for a larger wedding group.  It has a bathroom, and covered picnic area. 

For a wedding at Shoshone point, be sure to make a reservation with the National Park Service.

Adventure Weddings

 

I am willing to photograph weddings in Dangerous places - like hanging off the side of a cliff, or while river rafting, or just about any

other crazy idea you can think of for getting married.  The funner the wedding the better price I'll give you!

I rarely (very rarely) will shoot an indoor wedding.  However...

If you are eloping somewhere with great scenery, contact me for a great rate.

I chose to live in an amazing place to enjoy the outdoors and I want my art to reflect this lifestyle.

 

Pricing and Scheduling

 

Be sure to schedule your engagement photography session far enough in advance to create your pictorial wedding invitations from your engagement photos.

 

For wedding photography prices see my Rates page and to schedule, please contact me.  I will also travel upon request.
