The Last Day of 2016

Traci and Jon have a true love story. They dated in high school and twenty years later they reconnect and realize they are still in love! Their New Year’s Eve day wedding was celebrated at a retreat center between Dixon and Embudo. The ceremony was situated perfectly on the river, under a gazebo, next to an outdoor fire place. The sound of the river was the only music required for a completely tranquil spot. Ted Wiard, good friend of Jon, officiated the ceremony.
This couple began their honeymoon in 2017, a new year and refreshing way to start a marriage and a lifetime together.

Engagement Shoot and Blended Family Portraits

This soon-to-be-family came from Texas to Angel Fire, NM for a vacation. When they arrived, their home didn’t have heat…and it was 25 degrees outside. Despite a long drive, moving into a hotel, and cold temperatures, we still captured some amazing smiles. Lynn and Jon will be married this summer, little Macy loves Jon and is along for the ride! Congratulations to a beautiful engagement and a lovely blended family!

Family Photos With 3-Year-Old

We took these photos before the snow hit, the non-snowy scenery actually looks funny to me now as we’ve had so much snow in the last few weeks and the ground has been covered!
Tamika is 3-years-old and is a princess and wiggle worm and a delight! The afternoon was cold and there was a slight (but brisk) breeze; this little girl didn’t complain once!
A big pat on the back to this beautiful family who squeezed in this last-minute shoot for Christmas card pictures. It was a tricky time but everyone made it and these photos are well worth it!

December Taos Courthouse Wedding on Snowy Day

This couple did not want anything fancy for their wedding so they decided to get married at the Taos County Courthouse. Judge Shannon officiated the casual wedding ceremony. The wedding vows and ring exchange was completed in less than five minutes, it took longer to get the marriage license! When we walked outside we were greeted with a winter snowstorm (there wasn’t a bit of snow on the ground when we entered the courthouse) which was a surprise and certainly good luck on a wedding day. Congratulations to Alida and Mark!

Christmas Pictures in Taos

At this time of the year, we are SO busy taking family, children, and baby portraits for people to send with their Christmas cards! This lovely family came up to Taos from Espanola, and they were dressed for the season– even their dog had a Christmas sweater! A photo-shoot like this usually only takes about 45 minutes and we all have some good laughs while doing it. Call to schedule your Christmas card photos today!
