Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Ceremony / Sagebrush Convention Reception

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Ceremony / Sagebrush Convention Reception

Christal and Joshua got married off of the Taos plaza at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. Christal’s favorite colors are watermelon and lime and these colors stand out brilliantly in the photographs. Christal and Josh have a darling little boy who was the ring bearer and responded well when he was given gum or candy. This was the kind of wedding that makes me love being a photographer. These guys had a beautiful ceremony, a fun reception with amazing guests, and were just awesome to be around. Their wedding photos reflect how in love Christal and Josh are.

Sharon and John live in Virginia and came to Taos to elope and have their intimate destination wedding ceremony in front of beautiful Taos Mountain. This springtime wedding took place at beautiful bed and breakfast La Hacienda del Sol right on Taos Main Street. The flowers were done locally by Mercedes of Elegante Floral. There was a plaid ribbon wrapped around the bouquet that matched the Scottish groom’s tux bow tie… cool!! Congratulations to Sharon and John!!

St. Francis to El Monte Sagrado via Taos Trolley

St. Francis to El Monte Sagrado via Taos Trolley

The San Francisco de Asis, also known as St. Francis, is one of the most famous cathedrals in New Mexico. Vanessa and Charlie tied the knot at this famous church and then the entire wedding party took the Taos Trolley around the plaza (driving around the plaza after a wedding in Taos is tradition here) to end at destination El Monte Sagrado for a gorgeous reception.

Catching Smiles in our Photography Studio

Catching Smiles in our Photography Studio

During the cold winter days here in Northern New Mexico, we are grateful to use our private (and warm) studio in Taos to capture your child’s portraits. Lola’s mommy wanted photographs of her daughter “in her element” and I believe we accomplished that in this photo shoot. Lola has a very theatrical side to her and we caught her happy, sad, playful, and serious moods. Lola loves her dog, high heels, and the color pink.

Town of Taos Eco Park Grand Opening

Town of Taos Eco Park Grand Opening

I won the bid and received a contract through the Town of Taos to photograph the opening day of the Taos Eco Park. The Taos Eco Park is a state of the art synthetic turf field that has been 20 years in the making. The park opened with one field; two more fields will be added to the park. Also the entire parking lot will be covered with solar panels, meaning the Eco Park will be run totally on solar power.
The Taos Eco Park’s ribbon cutting and grand opening was a warm and windy day, everything went off without a hitch.

Photos of an Empty Taos Eco Park

Photos of an Empty Taos Eco Park

In my contract as the official photographer for the Town of Taos Eco Park, I was to take some photos of the FIFA certified soccer field while it was empty. I loved being alone to walk around on that bouncy turf to take photos with the sunshine and the sunset, the mountains, the park’s development, the lights and parking lot. I love that the parking lot will be covered in solar panels and the Taos Eco Park will run off of solar power. It was really neat getting this contract and being part of the opening of this green park.

High School Senior Portraits for an Espanola Graduate

High School Senior Portraits for an Espanola Graduate

High school senior photos are a perfect way to document the incredible accomplishment of a journey finally completed. You may bring up to six different outfits to your senior photo session and we will photograph you with your guitar, your car, in your sports gear, cap and gown, on your snowboard or skis, in your favorite t-shirt, or your best dress clothes, or whatever you may challenge us with. I love the traditional Native outfit that Dino is wearing in some of these photos. The turquoise is so brilliant and the bead work is amazing.

Headshots and Photo Session for Taos Attorney

Betsy Musselman, Taos attorney specializing in family law, had me come to her law office to take some photos for her new website. I took pictures of her office (check out the amazing colors in her rooms) and head shots of Betsy for new business cards. Poetic Images has been doing tons of photography for websites, business cards, and other forms of business advertising.

Classy Boudoir Portraits in Private Studio

Classy Boudoir Portraits in Private Studio

This beautiful woman wanted some gorgeous, and sexy, nude photographs for herself. She wants to have these so someday she can look back at these images and smile. She said that maybe she will share these photos with her boyfriend, but really it was a gift to herself. I do a lot of boudoir sessions and many times women and men have these photos taken for their spouse, partner, or significant other (which is always appreciated by the receiver, I’m sure). But I do find people doing these photo shoot for themselves, especially fantastic and admirable. Here’s to you!

Digital Headshots For A Business Project

Digital Headshots For A Business Project

Armando needed a variety of different digital images for a photography project for his work, so we went to work! This photo session was captured at one of my super secret locations here in the Town of Taos. I love all of the different backgrounds that this location has to offer: green trees and flowers, various colors of adobe, broken down and spray painted areas, both bright colors and earth tones, and most importantly, fantastic lighting!
