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.
It is summertime and it is green out! Right now is a perfect time of year to get your senior’s high school portraits crossed off of your list before their senior year even begins! In these summer months we have lush, colorful backgrounds and warm temps which helps with natural light and natural smiles! Call us today to schedule your senior’s class of 2019 senior photos. We love what we do and it shows in our photography.
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.
This awesome woman wanted to document her 40th year of life with a photo session! We had fun as Irene changed outfits and we found different ways to reflect her beauty and personality. Here’s to 40 more years of happiness and adventures!
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.
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.”
These gentlemen were encouraged to come to Taos for their destination elopement! Neither of these grooms had ever been to Taos and (thank God) they fell in love with it immediately!
The wedding was at a private home. After being together for over a decade this couple was still very nervous prior to the no-guest ceremony. The outdoor wedding ceremony was about fifteen minutes long and a few good-luck snow flakes even came down. Congratulations on this couple and many more decades of love!
I got together with this darling couple earlier in the afternoon on wedding day since their entire wedding was outdoors after dark. We captured their smiles in the daylight before I left to come back after dark.
This bride and groom came to Taos for their destination elopement and planned the ceremony to be during the 2nd full moon in January. This full moon was also a lunar eclipse. This was officially my first “Blue Blood Moon” wedding. Additionally, the wedding was shot in a labyrinth… It was unique and beautiful and very Taos!
