When Kevin and Angelynn emailed me and asked if we could take some photos up at Antelope Canyon and then Horseshoe Bend, I kind of freaked out. I mean…the logistics of doing a shoot in Antelope Canyon was probably tough, not to mention all the hordes of tourists who’d be in the background of every photo.
But as it happened…mid-December is chilly. Cold even. Not a favorite time of year for tours of the Canyon. We lucked out there.
So Kevin and Angelynn flew all the way from Malaysia to do this. And they asked me to be the one to capture everything for them. I was humbled. That’s such a long ways to go with a ton of planning to get just right. But of everyone they could have found, they chose me. What an honor. And some pressure too!
I met them up at their hotel in Page and we basically just went from there. In Malaysia, these are called “pre-wedding photos”…not really engagement photos. The bride-to-be wears a wedding dress, which is different than what we do here in the United States. And can you imagine covering all the ground we do below wearing a wedding dress? Angelynn was amazing…she wore a jacket because of the cold, would toss it off in a moment’s notice for photos, and then trudge up hills and down while holding the dress up out of the dirt.
HUGE thanks to Antelope Canyon Tours for being so accommodating and amazing. They even remembered me from the year before when I visited.
Finally, thank you Angelynn and Kevin so much for having me do this. It was a ton of fun, and an amazing experience. Good luck in your marriage!
