Engagement Shoot and Blended Family Portraits

Engagement Shoot and Blended Family Portraits

This soon-to-be-family came from Texas to Angel Fire, NM for a vacation. When they arrived, their home didn’t have heat…and it was 25 degrees outside. Despite a long drive, moving into a hotel, and cold temperatures, we still captured some amazing smiles. Lynn and Jon will be married this summer, little Macy loves Jon and is along for the ride! Congratulations to a beautiful engagement and a lovely blended family!

Thanksgiving Weekend Wedding

Thanksgiving Weekend Wedding

Another wonderful bride and groom from Colorado! This fun couple had their wedding out on the mesa in Taos, NM. with the Sange de Cristo mountain range and Rio Grande Gorge Bridge adorning the background. The bride and flower girl walked through the sagebrush to meet the groom out on the rim of the gorge who waited with about 25 guests. The ceremony was simple and sweet and was followed by a first dance. We had perfect weather and the next day it snowed over a foot, wedding luck!
Congratulations to Sarah and Paris!

Afternoon Wedding in November

Afternoon Wedding in November

This couple came from Los Alamos to have their wedding in Taos! The Sagebrush was a perfect place to host both the wedding and the ceremony. All guests stayed at the Sagebrush and didn’t have to leave the grounds until they left town. We had beautiful light to do the photos prior to the ceremony. The grass filled courtyards were a nice place to shoot the pictures and allowed the young children to run around before having to sit still. The ceremony took place in the convention center in front of the fireplace. Congratulations to these newlyweds!!

Father – Daughter Team Portraits

Father – Daughter Team Portraits

The fall foliage peak was over but we still found some beautiful autumn colors to include with this father-daughter family photo session. Lucas and Juniper and I took advantage of a beautiful side street in town that had a few lasting yellows and golds, it even had one tree that was still green! It was a long and strange autumn this year in Taos, the wonderful thing about that was we had lots of time to get every baby, family, senior, engagement shoot, and wedding whom wanted those gorgeous autumn earth tones in their portraits.

The Gold of Fall Leaves

The Gold of Fall Leaves

Shawna and Jay planned months ahead and guessed when the time to get married under the wonder of the golden leaves in the autumn in Taos would be…and they nailed the date!! This year the *perfect* fall foliage date was the weekend of October 15th. The sun was shining and warm, there was a perfect light breeze. The bride had a autumn colored bouquet that was even adorned with some pine cones! The light was perfect coming through the leaves, it was a good day to be a photographer.

Green Grass and Golden Leaves

Green Grass and Golden Leaves

This bride and groom picked a beautiful, autumn day to travel from Denver, Colorado to Taos, New Mexico for a gorgeous, outdoor fall wedding. The leaves were floating off of the trees during the short wedding ceremony. Devon wore a delicate, vintage wedding dress. Her chamomile and daisy bouquet was simply wrapped in burlap. The red chiles were a beautiful contrast with the fall foliage, a reminder of the harvest that also takes place in the autumn. Cheers to this young couple and many beautiful autumns to come.

A Girl, Her Horses, and Her Dog

I absolutely cannot slim down my favorites to any fewer images from this high school senior session! I had so much fun with 2016’s Rio Arriba County Rodeo Queen, Autumn Sanchez, and her three horses and puppy! We did this senior shoot in Chama, and although we JUST missed the “peak” of the fall foliage, we still had beautiful autumn colors to work with. Congrats to another amazing senior, here’s to the class of 2016!

Two-Year-Old and Family Portraits

Two-Year-Old and Family Portraits

Per usual we had a limited time to do these two-year-old portraits, and after that two-year-olds stop being models and start being toddlers again! Brogan and his parents have been clients of mine since Brogan was an infant. He is fun to adventure around with as he does his portraits; he is a mini-man and is always on a mission! Call us so we can capture your family while the weather is still nice and fun to play in. The peak of the fall foliage will be here in a week, this gives us beautiful light and backgrounds, we can’t go wrong!
