Dallas Family on Vacation in Taos

Even when the “kids” are grown up, it’s still a great time to have professional family portratis taken. This family was on vacation from Dallas, Texas and decided to have their family documented. This was an easy shoot. We met at these guys’ bed and breakfast and since we didn’t have tiny children, our shoot was done in 30 minutes. When you plan your Taos vacation, also plan and book a family photo session. This will capture the photo that gets missed most often, all of you together.

Engagement Shoot in June

Jordan and Luke are both native to Taos, so when they get married they plan to have a giant wedding (oh those large New Mexico weddings)!! Taos has several places to book large weddings and/or wedding receptions. The Sagebrush Inn, Taos Mesa Brewery, and the KTAOS Solar Center all have the capabilities to cater to 300+ guests. Usually at a large wedding, you want your photographer to hangout with you for a while, and then leave you alone so you don’t feel like there’s a paparazzi situation (I wish I was kidding). For a large wedding which takes place at one venue, we usually recommend about five to seven hours of time, starting 1.5 hours prior to your ceremony. At a wedding which is at two locations (ie a church and the country club), we usually recommend seven to eight hours of time, which will help cover the travel time which is incurred when moving from one location to another.

4th of July Elopement in Forest

He traveled from Oregon and she traveled from Mississippi and they eloped in Taos, NM! We had such a good time hanging out in the woods, off a trail in El Salto. The morning air was cool and the woods were quiet. The ceremony, license signing, toast, and formal photos took just about one hour and then we all headed into Arroyo Seco for the famous 4th of July parade down Main Street! I love 4th of July weddings, something about getting married on a day that celebrates independence, it’s delightfully ironic!

Penasco Family Portraits

Family portraits are not only for when you have small children. Family portraits are to document the different stages your family goes through. Family portraits show how you grow and change as a family.
This family from Penasco, NM came to Taos for their outdoor family photo session. The portraits were not painful and I think it’s very possible that we all actually had fun!

Engagement Shoot in Carson National Forest

This adorable couple lives in Colorado but are having their destination wedding in our little mountain town of Taos! There are many benefits to having a Taos wedding. The delicious food and amazing views alone are incredible entertainment for your guests, but the best reason is that your wedding takes you to another place to have a unique event in a place that is totally yours.
