We had beautiful April weather for this outdoor Taos wedding with Pueblo Peak as the altar backdrop. This bride and groom intentionally were wed on Earth Day, to honor Mother Earth and their shared love of nature. Lovers of Taos and northern New Mexico, this was a destination wedding as the couple traveled here from Texas! Both sets of their parents also took planes, trains, and automobiles to get to this off-the-beatten=path unique southwest town.
This bride and groom were given the gift of “perfect weather” on their wedding day. An early May wedding outdoors in Northern New Mexico can be a very unpredictable event. Thunderstorms with possible snow was forecast up until the night prior to the ceremony, and then the weather magically changed and we had sunshine instead! Jackie had her brother and her two best girlfriends stand up at the altar with her. Tyler had his father and son, Anakin, stand up with him. Anakin was not happy with his suspenders and chose to hangout with his grandma instead. Turkey vultures circled overhead and a warm breeze made the bride’s hairpiece and dress dance so appropriately. Congratulations to these newlyweds!
After months of portraits with brown backgrounds there is a noticeable difference in the green of spring! Just ten days prior to this shoot, we had 12″ of snow on the ground in Taos Canyon. The earth has drank up the much needed water and everything is growing! Here’s to May, the last month that we may still have a freeze. And the first month where it really feels like spring!
And here’s to Samantha from Taos Pueblo! She’s a senior in high school and is graduating at the end of this month from Taos High School. Congratulations, Samantha!!
After many months of beautiful browns in the backgrounds, we are finally moving onto beautiful, green backgrounds! I absolutely love this time of year! I forget how many different tones of green our earth shares. How one flower can brighten an entire portrait!
We have been busy with family and baby portraits this spring. The grass is enticing to the babies, the warm weather is actually fun to hangout in (as opposed to those winter shoots)! Call Poetic Images to schedule your springtime photo shoot of your loved ones. Most photo sittings are done in under an hour and all of your photo proofing is done online from the comfort of your home!
This was Noah’s very first professional photo sitting, and he was a model baby!! He smiled when we asked…over and over again! This six-month-old baby also showed his big-boy skills of sitting up, eating his fingers, and grabbing the grass. So cute!!
Babies change so rapidly during their first 12 months of life. Be sure to schedule your 3, 6, 9, and 12 month photo shoots for your baby when they are born, this way you have these appointments in your calendar in advance! Poetic Images is here to document these big, important, and quick changes!
