Le Grand Couché de Soleil

One of the things I strive to do in life is create a space for honest friendships to unfold. Life is only enriched by shared trust and vulnerability with others. After working with Juliette a couple times in Atlanta we developed a great friendship. She even made me banana, chocolate muffins! This connection stayed strong even after I moved to L.A. 

We kept in touch over the months and late last year Juliette messaged me asking about my Christmas plans. I had decided to stay in L.A. instead of going back to Atlanta and I told her as much. She hit me with some wonderful news, she was getting married! I was incredibly excited for her and my excitement only built as she asked if I would be able to photograph the wedding in...The Grand Canyon. 

I don't typically shoot weddings, but I was honored and I couldn't imagine a better location. I happily agreed. When the day came I rode up the South Rim with the groom's party. We walked out to Grandeur Point and the bride's party met us there. It was a small, intimate affair with Juliette and Nick (bride and groom), each of their best friends and their mothers. It was frighteningly cold, but the excitement sustained us.
