Emma and Dan: Grand Canyon National Park Engagement Photographer


Grand Canyon National Park Engagement Photographer: Emma and Dan. Dan and Emma meet in the upper peninsula of Michigan while studying at Lake Superior State University. The two began dating shortly after Emma graduated and began their relationship long distance. With Emma’s career taking her across the country and Dan finishing up his degree the two remained long distant for 2.5 years. The two lived near each other in Traverse City Michigan for a summer before Emma moved to Arizona for better career experience.


Dan soon followed behind and they were finally reunited permanently in Flagstaff, Arizona were Emma works for a nonprofit and Dan works for a local high school. Soon after the move the two went on vacation to England to visit Emma’s family in England. It was on this trip in late September where the two got engaged in Edinburgh Scotland. They now live happily together in Flagstaff Arizona and soon hope to be living back in Michigan close to their families.


In their free time they love to cook, hike and watch their favorite shows together. Emma loves to practice yoga, read and take care of her plants. Dan enjoys watching hockey, playing games, and listening to podcasts. Recently the couple has set the date for their wedding, which will be September 19, 2021 back in Michigan…


About The Location: North Rim


See it, and you’ll understand immediately why the North Rim is regarded as the Grand Canyon’s “best side.” While visitors at the South Rim jostle with crowds and endure daytime temperatures nearing 100°, those fortunate enough to see the Grand Canyon from it’s North Rim will have a whole different experience. One the travel magazine Conde Nast once described years ago as “the Connoisseur’s Grand Canyon.”


Grand Canyon’s North Rim is only open from mid-May through mid-October. At 8,000’ above sea level, the North Rim is cooler and typically experiences heavy winter snows, hence the shorter season. At the South Rim, you’ll find primarily evergreen trees. On the North Rim, maple, aspen, birch and oak trees stand side by side with Ponderosa pines, making autumn a particularly special time to visit when these trees put on a radiant display of colorful foliage. Unique animal life abounds here, too, most notably, the gray Kaibab Squirrel with its distinctive tufted ears.

Words can not express how thankful and happy we are that we chose Monica to capture our perfect day. She made us feel both comfortable and confident in the whole process. She has this ease that makes you feel you’ve known her for years. Her kindness, personality, and professionalism was beyond what we could have hoped for. Her communication and organization was so impressive as well (I am far from organized)! Our photos are AMAZING, they are perfect. We wish we could do it all over again, and again. Seriously, book her right now! Best choice we could have made, and she helped make our day so wonderfully memorable and way less stressful.
