Same-sex Marriage in the High Dessert

Same-sex Marriage in the High Dessert

These gentlemen were encouraged to come to Taos for their destination elopement! Neither of these grooms had ever been to Taos and (thank God) they fell in love with it immediately!
The wedding was at a private home. After being together for over a decade this couple was still very nervous prior to the no-guest ceremony. The outdoor wedding ceremony was about fifteen minutes long and a few good-luck snow flakes even came down. Congratulations on this couple and many more decades of love!

I got together with this darling couple earlier in the afternoon on wedding day since their entire wedding was outdoors after dark. We captured their smiles in the daylight before I left to come back after dark.
This bride and groom came to Taos for their destination elopement and planned the ceremony to be during the 2nd full moon in January. This full moon was also a lunar eclipse. This was officially my first “Blue Blood Moon” wedding. Additionally, the wedding was shot in a labyrinth… It was unique and beautiful and very Taos!

January was so warm that we shot portraits outside throughout the entire month. The natural brownish earth tones are so beautiful in the natural light and it’s rare that we can use these backgrounds without shooting in the cold! This shoot was taken for a local musician and songwriter who is creating a website. It was so fun to do head shots with the guitar for a prop instead of just the usual chest up shots.
Call Poetic Images by Deanna for your local business photography needs. We make the shoot fun and we take outstanding photographs…you’ll be pleased.

Engagement Photography Session with Snow!

Engagement Photography Session with Snow!

These two are at school in UNM in Albuquerque and will get married up in Northern New Mexico right on the river! We started this shoot at one location and drove less than four miles to another location. The photos look like they are in completely different areas with the warm sunshine in some, and cold shad and snow in the others. We were so lucky to have a little bit of snow for this shoot, the first snow portraits I’ve taken this winter, and it’s January!!

First Newborn Sitting of 2018

First Newborn Sitting of 2018

This little fella came with the new year as he was born the first week of January! At one week old, this mister was a joy to work with. His first-time mama was sensitive to his needs and made him feel safe when he was a little unsure of the camera. We had this shoot scheduled before this baby was born. This is an easy shoot for mom because she doesn’t even need to be in the pictures!
