There is nothing like standing next to class 3 rapids to photograph the union of two wonderful women! This couple came all of the way from Indiana to Taos, NM (well, actually Pilar, NM) to have a legal marriage! The wedding took place where two rivers come together, the perfect metaphor for a wedding ceremony. The roar from the water and the hollers of “congrats” from the whitewater rafters intensified the already extraordinary energy of this wedding. Officiant, Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremonies, delivered a gorgeous ceremony, there was not a dry eye among the guests. Congrats to Kim and Melissa!
These dapper men were wed on a perfect summer day. Taos’ four diamond resort, El Monte Sagrado, was an extremely “green” venue with beautiful green grass fed with grey water! The Episcopalian ceremony was short and intimate with maid of honor and best man giving speeches and the beautiful couple delivering extremely emotional vows.
I have shot a lot of same-sex weddings this year! Because Taos is a popular destination wedding location, AND because it is legal for same-sex couples to get married in New Mexico, there are a lot of couples traveling from afar (MANY from Colorado, Texas, and Oklahoma) to exchange wedding vows and rings at a marriage ceremony here in Northern New Mexico!
These men picked the perfect spring day for a Taos wedding! The lush grass and full trees were an outstanding background for the outdoor, wedding ceremony. The gorgeous adobe inn and architecture was an outstanding prop for our photos and we had fun taking advantage of each nooks and cranny! A huge congratulations to this extremely beautiful couple!
George and David eloped! This wonderful Colorado couple began their life together 31 years ago. They had a previous commitment ceremony but before their Taos wedding, their union was not recognized legally. This intimate wedding was going to take place outside at the Taos Courthouse, but after consideration these gentlemen decided to get married outdoors in Arroyo Seco. Mother Nature sent snow on the day of the October wedding, so instead the beautiful ceremony (officiated by Judge Jeff McElroy) took place in the great room at The Cottonwood Inn. I had the honor to be one of the official witnesses and was proud to sign this same-sex marriage license!
