This bride and groom took a getaway weekend from Albuquerque and came up to Taos for their elopement at the Rio Grande Gorge. Their ceremony was officiated by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. After the vows the couple exchanged necklaces instead of rings. The ceremony is currently a secret until they announce their marriage “down the road” when they are with friends and family. Congratulations to Denise and Jon!
It was unusually hot outside on this June day, but the large cottonwoods and weeping willows at El Monte Sagrado kept everyone cool at this outdoor wedding! Brittany and Reed were perfectly on time for their photos and we were able to get the pre-wedding, ceremony, and altar photos with out a hiccup (hooray)! The bride and groom and guests had so much fun at the ballroom reception with hilarious photo props and tons of laughing! Congratulations to Brittany and Reed!
What fun to photograph the bride and bridesmaids at popular resort, Buffalo Thunder just North of Santa Fe. Maurine and Antonio’s wedding ceremony followed the pre-wedding photos and took place at famous pilgrimage site and Catholic Church: El Santuario de Chimayo. The ceremony was watched by both personal guests of the bride and groom, and by tourists whom were just visiting the sacred site. A random dog made himself comfortable next to the bridesmaids’ feet during the ceremony.
We traveled back to Taos for an awesome New Mexico reception (400+ people) at Sagebrush Convention Center. The band had everyone up and moving on the dance floor. The newly weds were lucky to have a beautiful sunset bless their marriage and we captured some outstanding silhouettes. Congratulations to Maurine (from Angel Fire) and Antonio (from Taos)!
This young, Texas couple chose Hacienda del Sol in Taos to host their small, destination wedding. After their ceremony, wedding cake, and toast reception, we ventured to a few other locations in and around Taos to take some wedding pictures! This bride and groom were so easy going and had so much fun even though we were doing wedding portraits. Congratulations to beautiful newlyweds, Tasha and Brandon!
Laura and David tied the knot 12 years ago…and reaffirmed their vows to one another last weekend. A vow renewal is the perfect way to celebrate your marriage, and to reaffirm your commitment to each other.
Laura and David traveled to Taos to have their vow renewal ceremony at popular bed and breakfast, Hacienda del Sol. The “bride” and “groom” purchased one of the Hacienda’s wedding elopement packages that includes a small locally made wedding cake, professional flowers, a professional photographer (that’s us!), a wedding officiant, and two witnesses!
The air was crisp and cool but we still had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this Valentine’s Day wedding outside in February! This bride and groom came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope (they brought a few good friends for support). They choose for their wedding to be held on the staircase at El Monte Sagrado in Taos. They choose the staircase so they could see all of their friends perfectly during their wedding ceremony. Congratulations to Martha and Ted!
