A Taos, NM Country Club Wedding

The Taos Country Club in Ranchos de Taos, is an amazing place to hold an event. From a photographer’s perspective, every angle at this venue is incredible. With views of both the mesa and the mountains, the country club is a perfect spot for a outdoor wedding. The golf course offers a green background which is otherwise difficult to find in this dry area of the southwest. The indoor ballroom is adorned with dark vigas which offer a beautiful New Mexico look in photographs. Here are a few samples of some of the fantastic photos I have captured at various weddings, receptions, and other events at the Taos Country Club.

Wedding at Green Resort: El Monte Sagrado

Jolynn and Manual are both from Mora, NM and came to Taos for a beautiful wedding at El Monte Sagrado. This couple had a guest list of over 125 people which is quite large for a Thursday wedding ceremony, but quite small for a New Mexico wedding (many times the guest list is over 350 people)! The bride and bridesmaids had prior experience in flowers, so they designed their own bouquets which really look stunning in the photographs. The wedding cake you see is a very traditional style of wedding cake from this area. May this lovey couple and their new combined family live “happily ever after.”

Boudoir Session to Celebrate “50 and Fabulous”

Deb wanted to give herself the best 50th birthday present ever–so she decided on a boudoir photo shoot here at Poetic Images by Deanna! Deb brought in some different props (the masks are so cool!) and outfits, and we created photographs that show off this gorgeous woman in various poses: sexy, sassy, classy, unique, and beautiful. Boudoir sessions are for women and men of all shapes and sizes. These sessions are not only fun, but they build up your confidence in the fact that yes, you do look beautiful on camera!

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.

Romantic Setting and Green Courtyard at Hacienda del Sol

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!!
