It was unusually hot outside on this June day, but the large cottonwoods and weeping willows at El Monte Sagrado kept everyone cool at this outdoor wedding! Brittany and Reed were perfectly on time for their photos and we were able to get the pre-wedding, ceremony, and altar photos with out a hiccup (hooray)! The bride and groom and guests had so much fun at the ballroom reception with hilarious photo props and tons of laughing! Congratulations to Brittany and Reed!
What fun to photograph the bride and bridesmaids at popular resort, Buffalo Thunder just North of Santa Fe. Maurine and Antonio’s wedding ceremony followed the pre-wedding photos and took place at famous pilgrimage site and Catholic Church: El Santuario de Chimayo. The ceremony was watched by both personal guests of the bride and groom, and by tourists whom were just visiting the sacred site. A random dog made himself comfortable next to the bridesmaids’ feet during the ceremony.
We traveled back to Taos for an awesome New Mexico reception (400+ people) at Sagebrush Convention Center. The band had everyone up and moving on the dance floor. The newly weds were lucky to have a beautiful sunset bless their marriage and we captured some outstanding silhouettes. Congratulations to Maurine (from Angel Fire) and Antonio (from Taos)!
Vanessa and Geno are engaged to be married in two weeks! We had a lot of fun during this photo shoot. Geno is funny and Vanessa just egged him on…definitely a match made in heaven! Many times I encourage my shoots to bring a change of clothing. This was the first time (EVER!) that I’ve had the groom bring a change of outfits but not the bride. That gave all of us a good chuckle! Many congrats (two weeks early) to Vanessa and Geno!
In the summer of 2015, Hayden and I began his senior photo shoot at the Taos County Fair; we captured this senior with his 4H animals. He wanted to do an additional shoot later in the winter, when there was snow on the ground.
I called Hayden in January to see if he wanted to schedule his “part II” senior session. OF COURSE he had broken his leg the day before while skiing! He decided to do the shoot later in the spring after his cast was gone. In these images Hayden is wearing a brace on his knee. Although Hayden was still on crutches, we did most of the shoot without them. The pictures came out great.
Here’s to Hayden and the entire class of 2016, and the unexpected surprises your senior year can bring!
The air was crisp and cool but we still had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this Valentine’s Day wedding outside in February! This bride and groom came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope (they brought a few good friends for support). They choose for their wedding to be held on the staircase at El Monte Sagrado in Taos. They choose the staircase so they could see all of their friends perfectly during their wedding ceremony. Congratulations to Martha and Ted!
