Engagement Session for Winter Wedding

It’s “engagement season!!” More people get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day than any other time of year. We love doing engagement sessions to mark this special time and our couples love having engagement photos so they can send off a save the date card to their guests! Engagement photos in the autumn and winter are a fun change from the summer and provide beautiful, earthy backgrounds.

Father – Daughter Team Portraits

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.

The Gold of Fall Leaves

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.

Green Grass and Golden Leaves

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.

A Girl, Her Horses, and Her Dog

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!
