Autumn Engagement Shoot with Kayla and Mod!

Autumn Engagement Shoot with Kayla and Mod!

These women were awesome to work with and I absolutely love the coordinating outfits, especially the colors!
We squeezed in this shoot right before the first major snow in Taos. The leaves were still turning colors and the crisp nip of autumn was in the air. This engagement shoot is for Kayla and Mod’s wedding next September at KTAOS Solar Center. I cannot wait to see these cuties in their wedding gear, what a creative pair!

Taos High School Senior Photos

Taos High School Senior Photos

It’s hard to believe it’s “that” time of year again! Yes, Taos High School senior pictures for the yearbook are due on Halloween! In October we do a lot of senior sessions. I love how every senior has a different vision as to what they want from their senior photo shoot. This is Makayla who has recently located to Taos from out east. Have an awesome senior year, Makayla!

Double Gay Wedding in the Mountains of Taos

Double Gay Wedding in the Mountains of Taos

This was the best gay wedding ever! Dan Jones and I were thrilled to be chosen to officiate and photograph this Taos wedding. What a wonderful group of people, who had already know one another for 30 years! What a special wedding to document!
This was a destination wedding, a destination, double wedding. A destination, double, gay wedding. FUN!!!
These couples were awesome and we all hit it off immediately! The two mile hike in El Salto was beautiful and we chatted the entire way. I wore the same shirt as the bride. We both picked the same “casual” wear. A true LOL moment that will probably never happen to me at a wedding again!
Every wedding is different. Sometimes VERY different. I had a blast at this wedding and I look forward to the next very different wedding too.

Blended Family Portraits

Blended Family Portraits

It’s October and in Taos the leaves are just starting to fall! There are slight yellows along with the greens in the leaves and grasses. The air is crisp and it’s easy to get those delicious rosy cheeks that are so wonderful in autumn photography. The temperatures are still warm considering what we will be shooting in next month, and the leaves will be golden in just another week or two. Call us and let us capture your family photographs and enjoy a family outing in the crisp and beautiful fall foliage!

A Child’s Portraits with Sunflowers

A Child’s Portraits with Sunflowers

Could not pass up this beautiful sunflower backdrop on a gravel road in Llano Quemado, south of Taos!
Had a fabulous time trying to keep this 3-year old wiggle worm still and smiling while shooting these portraits! Little Eli loves to chat and we talked about monsters, robots, and of course flowers. I had picked two apples at a previous shoot and they were a perfect distraction for this little man!

El Prado Wedding Ceremony

El Prado Wedding Ceremony

The sunshine was gorgeous and hot at this 10am wedding ceremony in El Prado! The sunflowers were in full bloom and the mountain was majestic. Popular wedding venue, SpiriTaos, was in all it’s glory with the end of the summer gardens in pristine condition.
Megan, Aaron, and I went to Carson National Forest to finish out our photography time, with a quick visit to the labyrinth at San Geronimo on the way. The shade was cool and inviting and this beautiful couple just fell into pose without any help from me.
Congratulations to this awesome couple from Southern New Mexico, and may they have a very “happily ever after!”

Prenatal Photography Session

Prenatal Photography Session

The “baby” in these photos turned one-year old this week! These maternity shots were taken last year and have been sitting in my blog “drafts” ever since then. It’s been a busy year for me as much as these new parents!

Maternity shoots are fun because the photos are memories of a pregnancy *and* memories of yourself before your life endured a major change! Some women want the shoot to be of only themselves, some women want to include their partner. Whatever you choose, we will document this special time with memories that will make you smile 20 years down the road.

Destination Wedding: Taos!

Destination Wedding: Taos!

This sweet couple came all the way from Massachusetts to New Mexico for their destination wedding at El Monte Sagrado, a four diamond resort in Northern New Mexico. Many people claim that Taos is a magical place, and this couple may agree. The pouring rain stopped in perfect timing for this wedding ceremony to start. And the rain commenced again as soon as I packed up my camera gear. Congratulations to these awesome East Coast newly weds! May the luck of wedding-day-rain follow you forever!

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

Beautiful couple from California who came “home” to Dakota to recite their wedding vows! This simple church didn’t have electricity and the altar decor of candles in Ball jars were a perfect combination with the natural light. The country club wedding reception was in stark contrast with the ceremony location as we had electricity, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and green, watered grass! Poetic Images by Deanna is based in New Mexico and travels all over the world to photograph your wedding day!

Wedding at Historic Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe

Wedding at Historic Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe

There is nothing like a wedding in the historic Loretto church in Santa Fe, NM! The legend and the staircase are both special and couples in love come from all over the world to be married in this famous building on the plaza.
Betsy and Jimmy knew from the beginning stages of their engagement that their wedding and reception would be taken care of by the Loretto resort. I personally love photographing weddings at this venue as the staff is always friendly, helpful, and everything is precisely on-time. Santa Fe lends itself so beautifully to photography, it’s always a pleasure to document brides and grooms in “the city different.”
