Winter Wedding Outdoors in Taos, NM

Winter Wedding Outdoors in Taos, NM

This couple was fun, hilarious, and truly in love! I arrived early to get some romanticy photos of Megan and Jon. We had so much fun walking around, and they were candid and photogenic! Their morning wedding was brisk but it was a beautiful day for February. The turquoise colors (all shawls crocheted by the bride) were vibrant and very New Mexico. Cheers to a lovely couple. A big thanks for coming to Taos, NM for your outdoor, destination wedding!

Double Gay Wedding in the Mountains of Taos

Double Gay Wedding in the Mountains of Taos

This was the best gay wedding ever! Dan Jones and I were thrilled to be chosen to officiate and photograph this Taos wedding. What a wonderful group of people, who had already know one another for 30 years! What a special wedding to document!
This was a destination wedding, a destination, double wedding. A destination, double, gay wedding. FUN!!!
These couples were awesome and we all hit it off immediately! The two mile hike in El Salto was beautiful and we chatted the entire way. I wore the same shirt as the bride. We both picked the same “casual” wear. A true LOL moment that will probably never happen to me at a wedding again!
Every wedding is different. Sometimes VERY different. I had a blast at this wedding and I look forward to the next very different wedding too.

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! Poetic Images by Deanna is based in New Mexico and travels all over the world to photograph your wedding day!

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.”
