Taos School of Music at Taos Ski Valley and Taos Center for the Arts

We love that we are the official photographer for Taos School of Music that resides at Hotel St. Bernard in Taos Ski Valley every summer. These genius musicians are beyond outstanding, what a pleasure to document them enjoying life in this unique and exquisite summer school.
After many intense weeks of practice up at the TSV, these kids put on four different concerts at the Taos Community Auditorium and Poetic Images by Deanna is back to capture still images of these formal concerts as well. We are beyond impressed with this school and these inspiring musicians, thank you to Taos School of Music for this fun and different photography opportunity!

Desert Elopement With Mountains as Backdrop

Desert Elopement With Mountains as Backdrop

Joy and Rob traveled from California to New Mexico to elope among the mountains of Arroyo Seco. Taos Mountain is considered very sacred to the Indigenous population in Taos. Joy and Rob were married in a ceremony that paid a great deal of respect to Taos Mountain (Pueblo Peak) and the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. This couple honored the native wedding traditions in the southwest, including the traditional wedding vase ceremony. As soon as the ceremony ended, the sun exploded into the golden hour. We walked through a high-desert field for some romanticy photographs and the bride and groom found a horseshoe (sure to be good luck)! Congrats to these amazing people!

This couple came to Taos for a true desert elopement as no one knew they were off on a vacation to get married! Michelle and Jeff walked the labyrinth at Adobe Bed and Pines to the “altar” where they were wed by local officiant Dan Jones. The ceremony spoke of the labyrinth and a local flutist played soft music. After signing the marriage license we went to the rim of the gorge for some golden-hour photos. The next day I popped by the tattoo parlor to get photos of this couple receiving their wedding tattoos! Congratulations to Michelle and Jeff!!

Kristina and Chris live in Albuquerque and escaped from the big city to catch some mountain air on their wedding day! This couple had 20 friends and family meet them in Taos, NM for the ceremony and mini reception. After a very dry winter, it was refreshing to see the beautiful green grass at Taos’ bed and breakfast Hacienda del Sol. Sacred Taos Mountain overlooked on the ceremony as officiant Dan Jones presided. Afterwards the couple celebrated with a toast and cake cutting and outdoor mingling with their guests.

These locals brought their best friends and closest family for a lovely ceremony with Taos mountain views and a beautiful garden! Hannah and Ryan couldn’t have known that they would get the best night in June for their outdoor summertime ceremony. The temperature was perfect and the breeze was ever so slight. The priority photos for this bride and groom were romantics, so we had fun walking around and getting creative.

Earth Day Wedding Ceremony at SpiriTaos

Earth Day Wedding Ceremony at SpiriTaos

We had beautiful April weather for this outdoor Taos wedding with Pueblo Peak as the altar backdrop. This bride and groom intentionally were wed on Earth Day, to honor Mother Earth and their shared love of nature. Lovers of Taos and northern New Mexico, this was a destination wedding as the couple traveled here from Texas! Both sets of their parents also took planes, trains, and automobiles to get to this off-the-beatten=path unique southwest town.

Sonya and Adam are going to be wed this summer in Questa and will have their wedding reception at the Red River Convention Center! After rescheduling a few times, we finally captured this family and engagement session on a calm morning of what was otherwise a windy spring day in April. We were definitely “on the move” as this darling little boy is full of energy and wants to RUN!! Of course these kids will be the flower girl and ring bearer for the July wedding.

High Desert Pilates — A Taos Pilates Studio

High Desert Pilates — A Taos Pilates Studio

What a pleasure to work with Amber Adams, certified Pilates instructor in her 1oth year of teaching.
Here’s a little ‘blurb’ I took directly from Amber’s Pilates website. She’s amazing, pop on by her studio! https://highdesertpilates.com/

“Having gained experience as a gymnast and dancer as a youth, Amber was drawn to Pilates as a young adult because it offered a “coming home” to body mechanics and movement. With a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from Western Kentucky University, she moved to Taos in 2003. She received her Pilates certification in 2008 after working for two years with Michele Larson of Core Dynamics in Santa Fe and interning with Carrie Field at Taos Pilates Studio. Committed to continuing education in the field, she has pursued advanced work with the Balanced Body Program in Denver as well as with Core Dynamics. Attending smaller workshops with Alan Herdman and Madeline Black.
Pleased with what Pilates has done for her “at so many different levels,” Amber wants to extend it to people of all ages and demographics and to work with modifications for those who may have injuries or disabilities.”
