The fall foliage peak was over but we still found some beautiful autumn colors to include with this father-daughter family photo session. Lucas and Juniper and I took advantage of a beautiful side street in town that had a few lasting yellows and golds, it even had one tree that was still green! It was a long and strange autumn this year in Taos, the wonderful thing about that was we had lots of time to get every baby, family, senior, engagement shoot, and wedding whom wanted those gorgeous autumn earth tones in their portraits.
Shawna and Jay planned months ahead and guessed when the time to get married under the wonder of the golden leaves in the autumn in Taos would be…and they nailed the date!! This year the *perfect* fall foliage date was the weekend of October 15th. The sun was shining and warm, there was a perfect light breeze. The bride had a autumn colored bouquet that was even adorned with some pine cones! The light was perfect coming through the leaves, it was a good day to be a photographer.
This bride and groom picked a beautiful, autumn day to travel from Denver, Colorado to Taos, New Mexico for a gorgeous, outdoor fall wedding. The leaves were floating off of the trees during the short wedding ceremony. Devon wore a delicate, vintage wedding dress. Her chamomile and daisy bouquet was simply wrapped in burlap. The red chiles were a beautiful contrast with the fall foliage, a reminder of the harvest that also takes place in the autumn. Cheers to this young couple and many beautiful autumns to come.
I absolutely cannot slim down my favorites to any fewer images from this high school senior session! I had so much fun with 2016’s Rio Arriba County Rodeo Queen, Autumn Sanchez, and her three horses and puppy! We did this senior shoot in Chama, and although we JUST missed the “peak” of the fall foliage, we still had beautiful autumn colors to work with. Congrats to another amazing senior, here’s to the class of 2016!
These women were awesome to work with and I absolutely love the coordinating outfits, especially the colors!
We squeezed in this shoot right before the first major snow in Taos. The leaves were still turning colors and the crisp nip of autumn was in the air. This engagement shoot is for Kayla and Mod’s wedding next September at KTAOS Solar Center. I cannot wait to see these cuties in their wedding gear, what a creative pair!
