These two are at school in UNM in Albuquerque and will get married up in Northern New Mexico right on the river! We started this shoot at one location and drove less than four miles to another location. The photos look like they are in completely different areas with the warm sunshine in some, and cold shad and snow in the others. We were so lucky to have a little bit of snow for this shoot, the first snow portraits I’ve taken this winter, and it’s January!!
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.
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.
This adorable couple lives in Colorado but are having their destination wedding in our little mountain town of Taos! There are many benefits to having a Taos wedding. The delicious food and amazing views alone are incredible entertainment for your guests, but the best reason is that your wedding takes you to another place to have a unique event in a place that is totally yours.
This incredibly shy doggy did a great job during her parents’ photo shoot! At Poetic Images, we love 4-legged friends and always encourage you to bring ALL of your family members to your family photo sitting!
