As Arizona wedding photographers, the Grand Canyon is one of the most beautiful and scenic places to get married. Meredith and Miles traveled from New York because they knew the Grand Canyon’s Moran Point would be a perfect spot for their intimate I do’s. This sweet couple invited just their parents to join them on their big day, keeping a secret from the rest of their family and friends until they returned from their honeymoon. After their beautiful ceremony they celebrated with their family at the El Tovar and then backpacked into the canyon to Phantom Ranch for their honeymoon. What an amazing wedding and honeymoon! Meredith was nice enough to share how her and Miles met and some fun stories about their big day!
Tell us about how you met?
Miles and I met at a McDonald’s on the upper east side after a night out with friends. Miles approached my friend and I asking ” hey ladies what’s good here”. He claimed to be a lawyer but my friend and I didn’t believe him telling him we were both lawyers. He then told us that he went to Brooklyn Law School which we replied no we went to Brooklyn Law School. He then started naming professors and we finally were convinced. It turned out that miles and I lived near each other and ended up sharing a cab home to Brooklyn and have been together ever since.
Tell us about your wedding planning and honeymoon:
We had a small wedding at the Grand Canyon with just our parents. No one else knew we were getting married until we got home. It was tough for everyone to keep the secret but thankfully we had only planned the wedding a month prior so everyone was able to hold out. Meredith’s parents and Miles Dad and girlfriend had never met each other prior to the wedding weekend but were like old friends almost immediately.
Our honeymoon was at Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. We hiked to the bottom the morning after our wedding and spend two nights at the bottom of the canyon before hiking back up to the rim. We explored Ribbon Falls and Phantom Canyon while we were down there.
What type of things/hobbies/interests do you both have in common?
Hiking, Biking, Swimming , Travel, Pizza , Roast Beef sandwiches at Brennan and Carr in Brooklyn AND mutual dislike of cruises, we were once left behind by the boat in Bermuda
We are excited that Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner! This means that the weather is perfect for an outdoor photo shoot. And what would make your photo shoot just a bit more perfect? Dressing the latest fashion trends of the season! According to fashion designer, writer, and Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) Ambassador, Carmen Marc Valvo, this season Poppy Red is in. Poppy Red is dynamic and exciting with a cultural influence from Asia. Simply perfect for all those sunny days and outdoor photo sessions this Spring and Summer. Ivory and black are the perfect accent colors for this vibrant red, and will be flattering on most everyone. If you are graduating and planning on taking a senior portrait or even just a fun family session, we think that these outfit ideas are perfect for some inspiration.

Melissa and I just love photographing engagement sessions. It is such a special time in a couples relationship, they are so in love and there is so much excitement leading up to the wedding. An engagement session also lets us get to know our clients better before their big day. We had a blast working with Caity and Jason and getting to know them as a couple. Caity and Jason will be getting married at the beautiful Sedona Golf Resort in August. To stick with the Sedona theme they decided to use Tlaquepaque and Los Abrigados for the engagement session location. Caity and Jason also included their special little lady, Emma, in the shoot. The entire family was a pleasure to work with. Jason is so sweet to Caity and Emma, they all giggled the entire shoot. Congratulations to Caity and Jason! We can’t wait for your August wedding! ~Kristen
Charlotte and Kyle had a sweet intimate wedding on a snowy Saturday at the end of December. The couple was back in their hometown of Flagstaff for the holidays and thought it would be a perfect time to say I do! Their ceremony was attended by immediate family and held at the quaint Chapel of the Holy Dove. Charlotte looked stunning in her lace gown and her red rose bouquet from Mountain High Flowers. The Chapel of the Holy Dove is a unique place, set in a meadow with views of the San Francisco Peaks. The Chapel is one the way to the Grand Canyon so it gets many visitors from all around the world. Most visitors write in the chapels journal but couples that get married there get to write on the chapel walls. Charlotte and Kyle are now among the couples that have had their wedding in this special little chapel. Congratulations Charlotte & Kyle, we will you lots of love and happiness! ~Kristen

Melissa and I absolutely LOVED this sweet and intimate wedding! Rebecca and Evan traveled with their families from the Chicago area to say their I do’s looking over the magical Grand Canyon. The Wedding Yentas agreed that it was an amazing way to start their life together. Rebecca and Evan kept some Jewish traditions to make the event extra meaningful.
