The National Parks offer some of the most iconic landscapes in the country, and they provide a unique backdrop for a family photo. They also offer a sense of adventure and exploration that can inspire creativity and lead to unique and unexpected portrait shots. The excitement of discovery can add a special quality to a photo of your family.

Let's have fun and be creative with your portrait photography session at the Grand Canyon. It's a beautiful location that offers endless opportunities for stunning shots!

Grand Canyon National Park engagement and elopement photos by Adam Schallau.

We're excited to work with families, couples, and friends traveling together on vacation.

We're also available for:

• Maternity portraits

• Engagements

• Even the occasional wedding

    Other locations

    In addition to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, we are available for portrait sessions on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and the Flagstaff area.

    We are also available for portrait sessions in northern New Mexico. We lived in Taos for over 10 years, and we know the area, including Santa Fe, very well.

    We'd love to hear any ideas you have for great locations or places special to you, and we can meet you there! We're happy to travel just about anywhere, and we look forward to photographing you in your special place.

    Grand Canyon Portrait Sessions

    Perfect for those with limited time. We will spend 1-hour in the afternoon photographing from 1 location on the rim of the canyon.

    Together we will wander along the rim of the canyon. We will spend 2 hours photographing from 2 locations along the Rim Trail.

    We will spend up to 3 hours photographing from up to 3 locations along the scenic Desert View Drive section of the park during the warm low-angle light of late afternoon. This option is perfect if you're up for a short hike or two or if you would like to photograph from additional locations.

    Fine Art Quality

    Adam uses a 100-megapixel medium format camera with high-quality professional lenses to create his photos. The result is a photograph with fine detail, beautiful color, and the ability to print as large as you can imagine. We provide high-resolution digital images that you may download from a private link and save to your phone, tablet, or computer. You have full printing rights for your personal use and the option to also download lower-resolution images that are perfect for sharing with friends and family and use on social media.

    For Your Home

    While you are welcome to have prints made through your preferred shop, you can also choose to let us have the prints made for you.

    we specialize in making heirloom prints that are perfect for display in your home. Heirloom prints are made using the same processes that Adam uses for his fine art prints, and they are available on traditional luster photographic paper, canvas, metal, or acrylic.
