When it comes to weather, you never know what you’re going to get at the Grand Canyon. I met Ashley and Taylor at Lipan Point for their Grand Canyon engagement session on what has to be the windiest day I have ever experienced on the south rim of the canyon. It was pretty crazy!
Rohan proposed to Rujuta last November on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on a beautiful, crisp afternoon. Rohan and I had been in contact for at least a month. We coordinated our meeting spot and plan for photographing the moment he asked Rujuta to marry him. I love photographing once in a lifetime moments. Asking your "person" to marry you totally qualifies!
Sometimes weddings take months and months to plan. And sometimes they don’t. But whatever way they come together, there is usually a whole lot of love that goes into the preparations. Totally the case with Katie and Billy’s wedding in the Zane Grey Ballroom at the Weatherford Hotel in the the heart of downtown Flagstaff.
Lauren and Cameron got hitched at Forest Highlands in Flagstaff on a beautiful, sunny day that followed a day full of rain. Enough rain to make folks worry a bit. But in the end sunshine prevailed. You can’t beat a mild June day in the mountains!
If laughter is the best medicine, then Andrea and Shane had to be feeling pretty darn good after their wedding at Little America in Flagstaff this past summer. Their wedding was overflowing with smiles and laughter. It was a joyful event.
You could say Matt is full of surprises. He told his girlfriend Lauren he was taking her on a surprise weekend getaway and that she should pack a bag and prepare for a long drive. On Friday morning he drove her to the Airport (they live in Georgia) and surprised her with a flight to Phoenix and a trip to the Grand Canyon.
Chrissy and Alex tied the knot at the Chateau de Vie in Chandler, Arizona on an unseasonably warm and pleasant October evening. The Chateau is a beautiful wedding venue and the whole wedding party stayed the night throughout the mansion's seemingly endless bedrooms.
Happy New Year! 2016 was a great year for Ryan Williams Photography and I'm looking forward to 2017. It's tough to pull together a year in review post that feels complete. This one is just a sampling of the fun and creative weddings and engagements I was fortunate to photograph during the past 12 months.
