An Elopement in Northern New Mexico

There’s a different excitement at elopements. The elopement wedding ceremony is completely about the couple. Not about the wedding party. Not about the guests. Not about the flower girl or the ring bearer.
Elopements are the wedding ceremonies that are emotional for the bride and groom. The wedding vows that aren’t ever put on for show. An elopement is when the couples’ entire focus is on one another. It’s about each other. Totally.

Taos, NM is a unique place for an elopement. It is for the couple that wants a rare backdrop. It’s off the beaten path. It’s the road less followed. Taos is place with “charm.” A place with wonderful weather, stunning views, and colorful sunsets.

 

 

 

 

 

Taos Goji Farm

It’s always fun to photograph one of our wedding packages at The Taos Goji Farm!
This couple has been together since they were 13/14 year old. They were so easy going and fun to photograph!!
This destination wedding (elopement in fact) with officiant Dan Jones presiding, took place while the flower girl ran around doing her own thing (she didn’t go far)! After the ceremony we were able to capture some fun family photos with the alpacas. Congratulations to these young newlyweds who have already been together over a decade!

Destination Wedding and Elopement Wedding Ceremony in Town of Taos

This was a delightful elopement! This couple came from Northern California to elope in Taos! Judge Shannon presided over the very short ceremony which left us a lot of time to get some romanticy shots of the bride and groom. We managed to carry out this ceremony/photography during a clearing on a stormy evening. Congratulations to these newly weds and thank you for coming to Northern New Mexico for your destination wedding!

Outdoor July Wedding at Bed and Breakfast

This darling Taos Inn, Adobe and Pines, is an awesome place to get married. The architecture and gardens are a lovely example of that “Taos charm” that is often talked about by the people who visit.
This couple came from Wisconsin to Taos, NM for their destination wedding. The July monsoon kissed their wedding event momentarily and guests took shelter under large pine trees. Everyone (and my equipment) stayed dry. I hear it is good luck to have it rain on your wedding day.
Claire and David were married in the courtyard with a wooden St. Francis overlooking the ceremony. The labyrinth is an equally beautiful place to be wed at this venue.

May Wedding On Rim of Rio Grande Gorge

This bride and groom were given the gift of “perfect weather” on their wedding day. An early May wedding outdoors in Northern New Mexico can be a very unpredictable event. Thunderstorms with possible snow was forecast up until the night prior to the ceremony, and then the weather magically changed and we had sunshine instead! Jackie had her brother and her two best girlfriends stand up at the altar with her. Tyler had his father and son, Anakin, stand up with him. Anakin was not happy with his suspenders and chose to hangout with his grandma instead. Turkey vultures circled overhead and a warm breeze made the bride’s hairpiece and dress dance so appropriately. Congratulations to these newlyweds!
