Your moment: How to Plan the Perfect Grand Canyon Proposal. Your wedding day may be one of the most important and memorable days of your life, but these days, people are putting as much planning behind the proposal. The stories you will tell, years after the big day, will be the first meeting, the first kiss, and the proposal. There’s a lot of pressure to get the proposal right – the location, the words, the ring. The Grand Canyon can be the perfect backdrop to making a memory that will last a lifetime – here are the important steps to build your proposal story.


How to Plan the Perfect Grand Canyon Proposal 


Plan A Getaway For You Two Alone

Part of making a proposal spontaneous is to keep the secret as long as you can. That’s why The Grand Canyon is such a great location for your proposal because it’s such a great place for a getaway for two alone. There are plenty of lodging options, the views are spectacular, and there are plenty of activities to fill your day – hiking trails, white water rafting, or you can even take a mule ride.

Capture the moment with a photo session

Hiring a photographer can make all the difference in finding the perfect location, time of day, backdrop, and capturing the magic and spontaneity of the moment. Consider booking a photo session with a photographer from Saaty Photography, and you’ll be glad you did. Your Saaty Photographer can also help you build your plan to make the most of your story.

Hide The Ring

If you’re looking for the proposal to be spontaneous and unexpected, you need to make sure you hide the ring in a place where your significant other won’t find, but also a place you don’t forget. Also, remember to bring it with you!

Decide on the Perfect Location

There are many spectacular locations all around the Grand Canyon to propose. It is one of the seven wonders of the world! The backdrop of the canyon, especially at sunset, will take your breath away when the colors seem almost drawn in the sky. This is a moment when your Saaty Photographer can help with advice about the perfect location to meet your personality and the tone of your proposal (romantic, fun, adventurous, shocking).

Don’t forget the props

When planning your proposal, think about the totality of the moment. Props can make such a difference – some ideas could be champagne and roses (or the final rose), signs like “she said yes” and confetti cannons. Even consider extremes like musicians, singers, or even the whole band.

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.
