Beautiful Catholic Wedding Ceremony at St. Anthony’s in Questa, NM

St. Anthony’s Parish Chapel in Questa, NM is a beautiful backdrop for a wedding ceremony. Sonya and Adam live in Santa Fe but came “home” to Questa to say their wedding vows. The current priest at St. Anthony’s was a high school classmate of the groom which made this ceremony extra special for everyone involved. Sonya and Adam celebrated their wedding reception in Red River at the convention center. Congratulations to this lovely couple/family!!

Outdoor July Wedding at Bed and Breakfast

Outdoor July Wedding at Bed and Breakfast

This darling Taos Inn, Adobe and Pines, is an awesome place to get married. The architecture and gardens are a lovely example of that “Taos charm” that is often talked about by the people who visit.
This couple came from Wisconsin to Taos, NM for their destination wedding. The July monsoon kissed their wedding event momentarily and guests took shelter under large pine trees. Everyone (and my equipment) stayed dry. I hear it is good luck to have it rain on your wedding day.
Claire and David were married in the courtyard with a wooden St. Francis overlooking the ceremony. The labyrinth is an equally beautiful place to be wed at this venue.

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

Beautiful couple from California who came “home” to Dakota to recite their wedding vows! This simple church didn’t have electricity and the altar decor of candles in Ball jars were a perfect combination with the natural light. The country club wedding reception was in stark contrast with the ceremony location as we had electricity, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and green, watered grass! Poetic Images by Deanna is based in New Mexico and travels all over the world to photograph your wedding day!

Hearing Impaired Brides Elope to Taos

Hearing Impaired Brides Elope to Taos

It was such a great pleasure to photograph these brides, whom are hearing impaired! These gals were so amazing to watch during the wedding ceremony. The emotion that they exhibited in their signing was beautiful. The vows were interpreted so everyone knew what these women were signing; as so these women knew what the minister was speaking. I loved how these ladies held one another’s vows when it was time to “recite” them, how they were so connected through their eyes. Congratulations to these lovely gals! I am excited to photograph another hearing impaired wedding!

Extended Family Photo Session

Extended Family Photo Session

We were able to capture this Grandma and Grandpa with their kids and grandkids at this shoot in the beautiful, green forest in the Black Hills of South Dakota! The fun part of this shoot was doing the posing, smiling, and shots as fast as we could as the light kept growing darker and darker and the thunder sounding closer and closer! In 30 minutes we got photos of the entire group, headshots of all of the adults, the couples together, the kids together, each individual family, all of the children individually, and the grandparents with their grandchildren. That’s some fast shooting!!
