We had beautiful April weather for this outdoor Taos wedding with Pueblo Peak as the altar backdrop. This bride and groom intentionally were wed on Earth Day, to honor Mother Earth and their shared love of nature. Lovers of Taos and northern New Mexico, this was a destination wedding as the couple traveled here from Texas! Both sets of their parents also took planes, trains, and automobiles to get to this off-the-beatten=path unique southwest town.
This awesome woman wanted to document her 40th year of life with a photo session! We had fun as Irene changed outfits and we found different ways to reflect her beauty and personality. Here’s to 40 more years of happiness and adventures!
Sonya and Adam are going to be wed this summer in Questa and will have their wedding reception at the Red River Convention Center! After rescheduling a few times, we finally captured this family and engagement session on a calm morning of what was otherwise a windy spring day in April. We were definitely “on the move” as this darling little boy is full of energy and wants to RUN!! Of course these kids will be the flower girl and ring bearer for the July wedding.
This little guy is a “regular” as I have done portraits of him at 9 months and as a newborn! Rivers warmed up to the camera quite quickly and after a few poses decided he’d rather explore instead. It was fun to capture Rivers as he was enjoying the outdoors, as an 18 month old should! I’m already looking forward to the next shoot I have with this sweet boy!
Joe and Dexter’s outdoor, April wedding took place in El Monte Sagrado’s Sacred Circle. The Sacred Circle was blessed by many different religious leaders and many weddings at El Monte take place in this spiritual space. Dexter and Joe’s wedding ceremony was officiated by Dan Jones, Taos’ leading (and El Monte’s premier) wedding officiant. The ceremony was fifteen minutes long with loving readings from the grooms’ son and Dexter’s mother. Per usual, Dan’s words bestowed emotion on all and no one left with a dry eye. Congratulations to Dexter and Joe!
