The big bend: How to Plan the Perfect Horseshoe Bend 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 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. Horseshoe Bend can be the perfect backdrop to making a memory that will last a lifetime – here are the important steps to build your proposal story.



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 Horseshoe Bend is such a great location for your proposal. Located only 2 hours from Flagstaff, the natural beauty of the majestic red cliffs and the flowing of the mighty Colorado River attract visitors from all over the world. You can also visit Antelope Canyon, where the sunbeams off the canyon walls make for breathtaking scenery.

Capture the Moment with a Photographer

One of the most important steps in your proposal should be hiring a photographer. Important moments like this can go by in a blur, so what better way to preserve each memory than by hiring a professional to do it for you? If your proposal is a surprise, talk to your photographer first. They will likely be more than willing to hide out or pose as a tourist to keep it a secret.

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 several memorable locations all around Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. The backdrop of the river or the canyon is exceptionally beautiful at sunrise or sunset. 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.

Take a deep breath, be cool, and know that there is no right or wrong here because no matter what happens, this will be a memory and a story that lasts a lifetime.

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.
