Outdoor September Wedding at Taos Bed and Breakfast

Megan was born and raised in Taos, New Mexico and returned “home” (all the way from Oregon) for her wedding at Adobe and Pines Inn. This outdoor wedding at local bed and breakfast was presided by the bride’s uncles. The bride and groom enjoyed a “first look” before the ceremony began. The aisle was made by flower petals and the the ceremony took place in the grassy green courtyard with statue St. Francis overseeing the event.

The Best Ever Ending of a Beginning

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.

Small Wedding at Palacio de Marquesa in Taos, NM

This Labor Day weekend wedding took place at El Monte Sagrado’s sister-site Palacio de Marquesa right in the center of Taos. Jill and David came to New Mexico from Texas to share their vows with their friends and family. The light was outstanding and the ceremony, presided by Dan Jones, was beautiful. After the wedding there was a sit dinner by local caterer, Manna, which is run by Chef Rochelle Woollard.

Double Gay Wedding in the Mountains of Taos

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.

A Child’s Portraits with Sunflowers

Could not pass up this beautiful sunflower backdrop on a gravel road in Llano Quemado, south of Taos!
Had a fabulous time trying to keep this 3-year old wiggle worm still and smiling while shooting these portraits! Little Eli loves to chat and we talked about monsters, robots, and of course flowers. I had picked two apples at a previous shoot and they were a perfect distraction for this little man!
