Arizona Proposals - Specializing in Grand Canyon Engagements

All we really have is this day, today, and each other.  

Imagine yourself standing with the person that you know you need to be with for the rest of your life - holding their hands, looking at their face and just knowing that in a few minutes everything will be amazingly different, so absolutely joyful. Imagine that nervous excitement and energy circulating through you. I can feel the goosebumps I have just watching this unfold. 

Making the decision is easy, and you’ve known it all along but now you want to ask that epic question. 

What could you want anymore than being fully present in that moment? Sure, the nerves might be running high no matter how well you plan it out, but what would you give just to be able to stand in that moment without worrying about a thing? 

To let time stand still and be able to enjoy the excitement, smiles and possible tears in their eyes? To have no cares at all except the feeling of this moment that you can never get back?

proposal planning guide

Terri was absolutely wonderful. She helped me plan the whole engagement, including what day of our trip, where to stand, etc. By the time we woke up the next morning we already had a "sneak peek" with 20+ photos. Terri was great to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking to do an engagement at the Grand Canyon


Terri is a terrific photographer and a great person. She helped me find the perfect spot to pop the question and has given my fiancée and me some amazing pictures to freeze that moment in time! Just look at the results for yourself! I really can't thank you enough, Terri! You're the best there is. Thanks again!


Terri took incredible photos of our Engagement. From setting up a plan, to local recommendations, to amazing photos - Terri is an absolute joy to work with. She made us feel relaxed and guided us throughout the process. We now have truly amazing candid photographs of our once in a lifetime event. Very, very pleased!


Terri did an outstanding job capturing our engagement! She was discrete when we arrived so I was completely surprised by the engagement! Our photos came out fantastic and I feel so lucky to be able to re-live our engagements through the pictures she captured! I would highly recommend her.


 Surprise Engagement Proposal

I could lose myself in a southwest sunset and I try never to miss one. All we really have is this day today, I really want to live free. Free to experience a sunset over a mountain or a dramatic rainstorm off the coast. I want to stand in every moment and appreciate today for what it is, every emotion, every smell every sound, the wind, the sand and how the sun was. To stop and breathe in the desert sage or salt air and to experience and be in giddy love with the way the earth makes me feel, to frolic through it and soak in it’s magic. More than anything, I feel so grateful to have grown up in a different place and have moved here mid- life. It allows me to appreciate this outdoor life that I’ve come to love even more as I wasn’t always enveloped in it.  

I really want to live free, there is no day but today.

About Terri

about terri

I moved from New Jersey to Grand Canyon National Park in 2009, before that I had no idea what adventure really was. In the last ten years, I have been an avid hiker, climber, and enjoy canyoneering. I played roller derby for some years, and tried aerial silks, acrobatics and lyra with the circus. I have a thirst for learning outdoor skills and also an affinity for the obscure and weird.  I have a houseplant and vintage camera problem and collect both, which could be an issue for the minimalist on-the-road lifestyle that I crave.

People are unique, you never meet the same person twice, that’s why I love what I do. I'm combining a love for the outdoors, people and art :)

I'm looking to work with people who have a natural curiosity and want to explore the outdoors during their photo sessions. I love wilderness activities that engage my senses and connect me to other people. These are the kind of experiences I want to create for you, and photograph along the way.
