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!

4th of July Elopement in Forest

He traveled from Oregon and she traveled from Mississippi and they eloped in Taos, NM! We had such a good time hanging out in the woods, off a trail in El Salto. The morning air was cool and the woods were quiet. The ceremony, license signing, toast, and formal photos took just about one hour and then we all headed into Arroyo Seco for the famous 4th of July parade down Main Street! I love 4th of July weddings, something about getting married on a day that celebrates independence, it’s delightfully ironic!
