Natalia and Sean: Grand Canyon National Park Engagement Photographers
Grand Canyon National Park Engagement Photographers: Natalia and Sean’s Adventure Session. Natalia told me their love story… “I was hired to work as a river guide at Hatch River Expeditions. For my second trip, I was scheduled to work with a fellow guide named Sean. Little did I know the river trip would turn into a 7-day blind date. Within a few hours of meeting and “x” amount of beers with our coworkers, we stayed up until 2 am, sitting next to each other laughing and sharing youtube cat videos. Within just a couple days on the river, it became apparent that we were inseparable.
After summer and river season ended, I decided to make a life changing decision to start law school. Part of what made my decision to leave my home community of Flagstaff, was knowing that I was moving closer to Sean. Even with 300 miles between us, Sean has stayed by my side every step of the way and helped me succeed. Now, I am one semester away from graduating and we are finally at the end of our long distance tenure. Our next move will be back to Flagstaff where we hope to settle down and establish career paths. We hope to continue river guiding in the Grand Canyon as it’s a reminder of our 7-day blind date in the most captivating canyon in the world.”
About The Location
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.
