Jessica and Auda are brides from Texas who came to their New Mexico neighbors to get married in front of Taos Mountain at SpiriTaos. The photos from Jessica and Auda’s wedding are some of my favorite “end of ceremony” photos ever. Usually the married couple kisses and then walks down the aisle for the recessional. Jessica and Auda were different. Their emotion and excitement was ecstatically beautiful and so photogenic. These are 11 successive images that I captured in less than one minute at the end of this ceremony. And they are beautiful.
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!
This was the best gay wedding ever! Dan Jones and I were thrilled to be chosen to officiate and photograph this Taos wedding. What a wonderful group of people, who had already know one another for 30 years! What a special wedding to document!
This was a destination wedding, a destination, double wedding. A destination, double, gay wedding. FUN!!!
These couples were awesome and we all hit it off immediately! The two mile hike in El Salto was beautiful and we chatted the entire way. I wore the same shirt as the bride. We both picked the same “casual” wear. A true LOL moment that will probably never happen to me at a wedding again!
Every wedding is different. Sometimes VERY different. I had a blast at this wedding and I look forward to the next very different wedding too.
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!
These women came to Taos for an intimate ceremony at the lovely Touchstone Inn. There were five close friends and family whom came to witness this wedding. The cake was made by Bren Price (owner of Touchstone Inn) and the ceremony was performed by Sandra Chestnutt.
