May Wedding On Rim of Rio Grande Gorge

This bride and groom were given the gift of “perfect weather” on their wedding day. An early May wedding outdoors in Northern New Mexico can be a very unpredictable event. Thunderstorms with possible snow was forecast up until the night prior to the ceremony, and then the weather magically changed and we had sunshine instead! Jackie had her brother and her two best girlfriends stand up at the altar with her. Tyler had his father and son, Anakin, stand up with him. Anakin was not happy with his suspenders and chose to hangout with his grandma instead. Turkey vultures circled overhead and a warm breeze made the bride’s hairpiece and dress dance so appropriately. Congratulations to these newlyweds!

Spring Green Senior Portraits

After months of portraits with brown backgrounds there is a noticeable difference in the green of spring! Just ten days prior to this shoot, we had 12″ of snow on the ground in Taos Canyon. The earth has drank up the much needed water and everything is growing! Here’s to May, the last month that we may still have a freeze. And the first month where it really feels like spring!
And here’s to Samantha from Taos Pueblo! She’s a senior in high school and is graduating at the end of this month from Taos High School. Congratulations, Samantha!!

A Taos Elopement at Art Museum

What fun to shoot another one of Dan Jones / Embracing Ceremony’s wedding packages at the Taos Art Museum! We had beautiful weather and beautiful light at this late afternoon wedding elopement. Hannah and Kelly booked their hotel prior to knowing their wedding site, and it turns up they were staying right next door! They also walked to their dinner site at nearby Lamberts. Cheers to the newlyweds!
