El Prado Wedding Ceremony

El Prado Wedding Ceremony

The sunshine was gorgeous and hot at this 10am wedding ceremony in El Prado! The sunflowers were in full bloom and the mountain was majestic. Popular wedding venue, SpiriTaos, was in all it’s glory with the end of the summer gardens in pristine condition.
Megan, Aaron, and I went to Carson National Forest to finish out our photography time, with a quick visit to the labyrinth at San Geronimo on the way. The shade was cool and inviting and this beautiful couple just fell into pose without any help from me.
Congratulations to this awesome couple from Southern New Mexico, and may they have a very “happily ever after!”

Destination Wedding: Taos!

Destination Wedding: Taos!

This sweet couple came all the way from Massachusetts to New Mexico for their destination wedding at El Monte Sagrado, a four diamond resort in Northern New Mexico. Many people claim that Taos is a magical place, and this couple may agree. The pouring rain stopped in perfect timing for this wedding ceremony to start. And the rain commenced again as soon as I packed up my camera gear. Congratulations to these awesome East Coast newly weds! May the luck of wedding-day-rain follow you forever!

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

Beautiful couple from California who came “home” to Dakota to recite their wedding vows! This simple church didn’t have electricity and the altar decor of candles in Ball jars were a perfect combination with the natural light. The country club wedding reception was in stark contrast with the ceremony location as we had electricity, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and green, watered grass!

Wedding at Historic Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe

Wedding at Historic Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe

There is nothing like a wedding in the historic Loretto church in Santa Fe, NM! The legend and the staircase are both special and couples in love come from all over the world to be married in this famous building on the plaza.
Betsy and Jimmy knew from the beginning stages of their engagement that their wedding and reception would be taken care of by the Loretto resort. I personally love photographing weddings at this venue as the staff is always friendly, helpful, and everything is precisely on-time. Santa Fe lends itself so beautifully to photography, it’s always a pleasure to document brides and grooms in “the city different.”

Hearing Impaired Brides Elope to Taos

Hearing Impaired Brides Elope to Taos

It was such a great pleasure to photograph these brides, whom are hearing impaired! These gals were so amazing to watch during the wedding ceremony. The emotion that they exhibited in their signing was beautiful. The vows were interpreted so everyone knew what these women were signing; as so these women knew what the minister was speaking. I loved how these ladies held one another’s vows when it was time to “recite” them, how they were so connected through their eyes. Congratulations to these lovely gals! I am excited to photograph another hearing impaired wedding!

Married Outdoors in Taos at Historic Kit Carson Home and Museum

This couple came from Denver, Colorado to celebrate their destination wedding in Taos, NM! The Kit Carson Home was an awesome outdoor location with their darling courtyard complete with refinished antiques, turquoise window sills and purple flowers. There were approximately 30 guests present. The afternoon, summer wedding was short and sweet and ended with Scottish bagpipes to celebrate the bride’s Scottish heritage. This perfect ceremony was followed by an elegant dinner at locals’ favorite restaurant, The Love Apple.
