Autumn Wedding at Taos Gorge Bridge

Autumn Wedding at Taos Gorge Bridge

This bride and groom had a beautiful wedding ceremony which honored the marigolds and the orange and black traditional colors of the El Dia de los Muertos celebration. They had their best friends and family with them on this celebration during the golden hour. The sun danced in the shadows and gave us a lot of creative light to play with. The bride was all smiles and the ceremony was complete with a knot-tying ceremony. The officiant was a dear friend of the bride’s and came from out of town. Congratulations to fun couple, Amy and Ross!

Wedding at First Presbyterian Church in Taos, NM

Wedding at First Presbyterian Church in Taos, NM

This bride and groom were long time Taos locals before moving away and settling up in Colorado. The church, First Presbyterian of Taos, is conveniently located in the middle of Taos next to Kit Carson Park and a beautiful church for a wedding ceremony in a sanctuary. The exterior and interior of this old church are the traditional Pueblo style: adobe on the outside and adorned indoors with vigas on the ceiling and a simple cross on the wall. Afterwards the photographer took this couple out for a few photographs with the great Taos Mountain. Congratulations to lovely newlyweds!

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!

Outdoor July Wedding at Bed and Breakfast

Outdoor July Wedding at Bed and Breakfast

This darling Taos Inn, Adobe and Pines, is an awesome place to get married. The architecture and gardens are a lovely example of that “Taos charm” that is often talked about by the people who visit.
This couple came from Wisconsin to Taos, NM for their destination wedding. The July monsoon kissed their wedding event momentarily and guests took shelter under large pine trees. Everyone (and my equipment) stayed dry. I hear it is good luck to have it rain on your wedding day.
Claire and David were married in the courtyard with a wooden St. Francis overlooking the ceremony. The labyrinth is an equally beautiful place to be wed at this venue.

Outdoor September Wedding at Taos Bed and Breakfast

Outdoor September Wedding at Taos Bed and Breakfast

Megan was born and raised in Taos, New Mexico and returned “home” (all the way from Oregon) for her wedding at Adobe and Pines Inn. This outdoor wedding at local bed and breakfast was presided by the bride’s uncles. The bride and groom enjoyed a “first look” before the ceremony began. The aisle was made by flower petals and the the ceremony took place in the grassy green courtyard with statue St. Francis overseeing the event.

A year-and-a-half ago I was hired by Chicago’s PBS to photograph them while they shot a documentary featuring Taos Pueblo. “Ten Homes that Changed America” will (finally!) air tonight on NM PBS at 7pm! If you are outside of NM, check your local listings so you can see this three-part series!
