Afternoon Wedding in November

This couple came from Los Alamos to have their wedding in Taos! The Sagebrush was a perfect place to host both the wedding and the ceremony. All guests stayed at the Sagebrush and didn’t have to leave the grounds until they left town. We had beautiful light to do the photos prior to the ceremony. The grass filled courtyards were a nice place to shoot the pictures and allowed the young children to run around before having to sit still. The ceremony took place in the convention center in front of the fireplace. Congratulations to these newlyweds!!

Wedding at El Santuario de Chimayo

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)!

Catholic Wedding Ceremony in Taos

Lora and Jim got married at Our Lady of Guadalupe church off of the plaza in Taos, NM. The wedding colors, tangerine and ivory, were vibrant in the photos. Local Taos florist, The Enchanted Florist, designed the bouquets and boutonnieres with roses and lilies. The bouquets were wrapped with white ribbon. The flower girls dropped tangerine flower petals in their processional down the aisle before the bride. The reception took place at popular venue, The Sagebrush, and the newlyweds danced into the night.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Ceremony / Sagebrush Convention Reception

Christal and Joshua got married off of the Taos plaza at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. Christal’s favorite colors are watermelon and lime and these colors stand out brilliantly in the photographs. Christal and Josh have a darling little boy who was the ring bearer and responded well when he was given gum or candy. This was the kind of wedding that makes me love being a photographer. These guys had a beautiful ceremony, a fun reception with amazing guests, and were just awesome to be around. Their wedding photos reflect how in love Christal and Josh are.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Cathedral in Downtown Taos, NM

Our Lady of Guadalupe is the cathedral right off of the plaza in Taos, NM. This church is special to the groom, Jose, because he and his father constructed all of the woodwork for the church, including the altar. Angelina and Jose had a huge wedding ceremony and reception as they were both born and raised in the area (Angelina from Questa, Jose from Taos). We had amazing light at the end of the night when we stepped outside to photograph some romantics at the Sagebrush Convention Center.
