The weather was warm and the sudden, small gusts of wind were unpredictable, check out the ceremony pictures that grabbed Julia’s veil!! After a late sprnig, Taos is still waiting for the buds to come in on the trees, which gave us some really pretty mountain views that we don’t have from the Sacred Circle at the El Monte Sagrado in the summertime! Everyone had fun playing games on the Taos Mountain Lawn while enjoying happy hour. The reception took place in El Monte’s main ballroom.
Heather and Joel traveled a long way from their home in Virginia to their intimate, destination wedding in Taos, NM! This couple was all smiles on their March wedding day. Bed and Breakfast, Hacienda del Sol, hosted this wedding in their courtyard with mountain views. The snow made an intense appearance on Taos Mountain and provided a dramatic background and beautiful contrast in the photos. Eight guests came from around the country to join this couple on their wedding day and all guests stayed at this local venue with the bride and groom.
Congratulations to these sweet newlyweds and their beautiful love!!
High school senior photo shoots are so fun because we get to just enjoy taking pictures, without a lot of pressure on time! We popped by a few different locations for Emma’s senior pictures so we could have some natural backgrounds and some Taos style architecture as well. The beautiful uninterrupted mountain views were taken from the roof of the Taos movie theater where Emma worked for several years, what great pictures! We are always open to trying new venues and location, it is inspiring to be somewhere different, for us and for our photography subjects.
These snowy portraits came out perfect considering we started and finished this shoot in 33 minutes, a very amazing feat with a four year old and 2 year old in the freezing cold! This mom and dad were so calm and did an amazing job as they distracted their children enough to not feel the current 20 degree temperature; our photographer was in a parka, hat, and gloves!
This photo session was shot along the banks in Red River, New Mexico. We also took a quick trip to the bottom of the ski lift to capture a ray of sunshine. We love capturing the smiles of families on vacation. Red River is such a beautiful area and it’s so easy to find backgrounds that reflect the nature and mountainous beauty of Northern New Mexico.
This giant family came to celebrate New Year’s Day in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The day prior to this photo shoot the mountains received two feet of fresh snow, it was so fun to capture the snowy grounds, conifers, and aspens in these outdoor January family vacation portraits!
The priority to this family was to get a causal group photos of everyone… The darling buffalo plaid outfits were so coordinated and seasonal and the children were so cooperative, this was an easy feat. We also captured each individual family outside. These memories took less than an hour to create and the pictures are precious and will last forever. Thanks to this family for such a memorable time!
Cat and her family came to northern New Mexico from Texas for a snowy winter vacation, and it snowed and snowed! Beautiful conifers adorned the property surrounding their cabin and they were a gorgeous backdrop for these family portraits. Everyone suited up in their winter boots and we knocked this photo session out in 45 minutes which included a quick drive to capture the ski slopes in the background too. As soon as we were done with these pictures, the snow started up again. Cheers to a very snowy winter!!!
Cindy and Ivan have a fairy tale story with enchanting wedding photos to match! This couple was wed in Red River, New Mexico in the warm sunshine and had an outdoor reception surrounded by warm fires. Their wedding guests traveled from all over to make it to this little mountain town. The views of the mountains with yellow and orange aspen leaves made for stunning backgrounds for the wedding party and guests. The couples’ ‘best dog’ was their Husky nephew who traveled to northern New Mexico from California.
This photogenic couple came all the way from New Orleans to Taos, NM to elope! The light was absolutely perfect for the wedding ceremony which was officiated by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. There was a light breeze and it was so quiet on the mesa as it was a Wednesday evening and not a lot of hikers were about. The groom (a tattoo artist!) requested a green pepper in the bride’s bouquet, and there were two! Congratulations to Denise and Walter and many more happy journeys.
St. Anthony’s Parish Chapel in Questa, NM is a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony. Sonya and Adam live in Santa Fe but came “home” to Questa to say their wedding vows. The current priest at St. Anthony’s was a high school classmate of the groom which made this ceremony extra special for everyone involved. Sonya and Adam celebrated their wedding reception in Red River at the convention center. Congratulations to this lovely couple/family!!
