These ladies came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope! Julie and Theresa’s friends and family were clueless to their “real” plans of their weekend rendezvous, aka Their Taos Wedding!! The weather was absolutely perfect for this February 4th outdoor wedding ceremony. The same-sex marriage was officiated by Reverend Dan Jones of Taos’ Embracing Ceremony. Erika and Mark of Hacienda del Sol were the witnesses for this tiny wedding. The brides celebrated with stories, laughs, cake, and champagne after a twenty minute ceremony and some wedding photos. Congrats to this beautiful couple!!
Kim and Bob brought their puppy along for a few photos together before their elopement in Taos, NM! This was the first time that I photographed a wedding at the Taos Art Museum. The museum and workhouse light is amazing and the woodwork is so giving to photography! This couple was married on the top floor of the museum which was a room full of windows that created beautiful light on the floor. The weather was sunny and warm and perfect for an afternoon wedding in February! What a pleasure to photograph at a new wedding venue right in downtown Taos!
After a few weddings outdoors this February, it was wonderful to photograph a February wedding indoors! This couple had a wedding at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, right off of the plaza in Taos, NM. I love the lighting and woodwork in this church! Liz was a beautiful bride who totally pulled off the Audrey Hepburn look. We photographed all of the family portraits with the bride and groom at the altar prior to the wedding so the couple could move right onto their reception immediately after the mass.
A big congratulations to Liz and Marcos!
Maggie and Cory decided that the 17 degrees weather was fine a fine temperature for an outdoor wedding! This couple, adorned in fishnets, suspenders, and Chuck Taylors, were wed at local bed and breakfast, Hacienda del Sol. The bride and groom’s best friends joined them on the journey from Albuquerque to Taos for the early January destination wedding. Congratulations to Maggie and Cory, what a photogenic wedding!
This new baby has more sets of grandparents and godparents than anyone I’ve ever met! Also, this new baby was the first grand/god child for all of these sets of grandparents. I don’t think this baby gets much attention at all, am I right?
What fun for all of these family members to meet for a vacation at a cabin in the Taos mountains and have family portraits taken during this time too! This was the little guy’s first portrait session, and he did a knockout job! Congratulations to all of these grandparents, and a very lucky (and cute) baby too!
There’s a different excitement at elopements. The elopement wedding ceremony is completely about the couple. Not about the wedding party. Not about the guests. Not about the flower girl or the ring bearer.
Elopements are the wedding ceremonies that are emotional for the bride and groom. The wedding vows that aren’t ever put on for show. An elopement is when the couples’ entire focus is on one another. It’s about each other. Totally.
Taos, NM is a unique place for an elopement. It is for the couple that wants a rare backdrop. It’s off the beaten path. It’s the road less followed. Taos is place with “charm.” A place with wonderful weather, stunning views, and colorful sunsets.
