Elopement Wedding Overlooking Taos Gorge

Elopement Wedding Overlooking Taos Gorge

This photogenic couple came all the way from New Orleans to Taos, NM to elope! The light was absolutely perfect for the wedding ceremony which was officiated by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. There was a light breeze and it was so quiet on the mesa as it was a Wednesday evening and not a lot of hikers were about. The groom (a tattoo artist!) requested a green pepper in the bride’s bouquet, and there were two! Congratulations to Denise and Walter and many more happy journeys.

Desert Elopement in Taos, New Mexico

Desert Elopement in Taos, New Mexico

This couple came to Taos for a true desert elopement as no one knew they were off on a vacation to get married! Michelle and Jeff walked the labyrinth at Adobe Bed and Pines to the “altar” where they were wed by local officiant Dan Jones. The ceremony spoke of the labyrinth and a local flutist played soft music. After signing the marriage license we went to the rim of the gorge for some golden-hour photos. The next day I popped by the tattoo parlor to get photos of this couple receiving their wedding tattoos! Congratulations to Michelle and Jeff!!

What fun to shoot another one of Dan Jones / Embracing Ceremony’s wedding packages at the Taos Art Museum! We had beautiful weather and beautiful light at this late afternoon wedding elopement. Hannah and Kelly booked their hotel prior to knowing their wedding site, and it turns up they were staying right next door! They also walked to their dinner site at nearby Lamberts. Cheers to the newlyweds!

These ladies came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope! Julie and Theresa’s friends and family were clueless to their “real” plans of their weekend rendezvous, aka Their Taos Wedding!! The weather was absolutely perfect for this February 4th outdoor wedding ceremony. The same-sex marriage was officiated by Reverend Dan Jones of Taos’ Embracing Ceremony. Erika and Mark of Hacienda del Sol were the witnesses for this tiny wedding. The brides celebrated with stories, laughs, cake, and champagne after a twenty minute ceremony and some wedding photos. Congrats to this beautiful couple!!

Late February Wedding at Local Museum

Late February Wedding at Local Museum

Kim and Bob brought their puppy along for a few photos together before their elopement in Taos, NM! This was the first time that I photographed a wedding at the Taos Art Museum. The museum and workhouse light is amazing and the woodwork is so giving to photography! This couple was married on the top floor of the museum which was a room full of windows that created beautiful light on the floor. The weather was sunny and warm and perfect for an afternoon wedding in February! What a pleasure to photograph at a new wedding venue right in downtown Taos!
