“I knew when I saw a picture of the Grand Canyon in the middle of winter online, that I had to capture it. By the grace of both the internet and mutual friends, I found out that a couple local to Flagstaff, AZ was interested in joining me for a quick photo shoot, but I knew once I heard their story that we had to make this something special.
Elizabeth and Caleb have been married for 10 blissful years, having met in high school and just recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary. They had planned on renewing their vows as well as having photos taken to commemorate the occasion, but through unforeseen life circumstances the plans fell through and it was put off. Elizabeth is a local photographer to the Flagstaff area and Caleb is a firefighter, so their schedules allowed for us to make this occasion the something special they both deserved.
Little did we know that one of the biggest storms Flagstaff has seen in years would hit on January 23rd, blanketing the city and shutting down all roads to the Grand Canyon. Although the Grand Canyon receives snow during most of the winter months, major blizzards that dump ten inches or more are rare events that don’t happen every year. Lucky for us, the morning of the 25th the Grand Canyon released that the South Rim would be open for visitors and we were greeted with snow capped peaks and 18-degree weather.” –Jennifer Lourie Photography
