It’s “engagement season!!” More people get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day than any other time of year. We love doing engagement sessions to mark this special time and our couples love having engagement photos so they can send off a save the date card to their guests! Engagement photos in the autumn and winter are a fun change from the summer and provide beautiful, earthy backgrounds.
The entire month of October is just beautiful in Northern New Mexico. In Taos the grasses and leaves take an entire month to change. I love the backgrounds in these pictures at the beginning of the October; the greens and yellows together are so pretty! The contrast of the leaves and the tree trunks is beautiful to me too. It was a brisk morning but we managed to get smiley photos of the almost-two-year-old before she burned out (photo shoots are a lot of work)!!
It was fun to take these pics as part of this engagement session. The gentleman in these photos is a police officer. We were all laughing so hard as he did the full frisk on his fiance.
What fun to do a family photo shoot with these smiling, happy girls! These sisters, ages one and three, giggled and smiled at the perfect times. They set up their own candid photos and allowed me just to shoot as they sat and looked cute together. I think it’s amazing how much the older child looks like her mom, and how much the younger girl looks like her father…darling!
We love taking family photos! Schedule your photo session now while we still have wonderful summery backgrounds!
Jordan and Luke are both native to Taos, so when they get married they plan to have a giant wedding (oh those large New Mexico weddings)!! Taos has several places to book large weddings and/or wedding receptions. The Sagebrush Inn, Taos Mesa Brewery, and the KTAOS Solar Center all have the capabilities to cater to 300+ guests. Usually at a large wedding, you want your photographer to hangout with you for a while, and then leave you alone so you don’t feel like there’s a paparazzi situation (I wish I was kidding). For a large wedding which takes place at one venue, we usually recommend about five to seven hours of time, starting 1.5 hours prior to your ceremony. At a wedding which is at two locations (ie a church and the country club), we usually recommend seven to eight hours of time, which will help cover the travel time which is incurred when moving from one location to another.
