This bride and groom found and booked their entire destination wedding online! It is actually very common for couples to find their wedding vendors online. In “the olden days,” one had to rely on word-of-mouth to know if a vendor was reliable, this was problematic when planning a destination wedding. Now a simple Google search can tell you so much about your wedding photographer, florist, officiant, and wedding venue. Elopements are increasingly popular and all-inclusive destination wedding packages are created to cater to brides and grooms who just want to sit back and relax and enjoy the most important day of your lives.
If you are planning a wedding from afar, hit Poetic Images up with your questions! We would love to be your guide through the process of a Taos elopement for your destination wedding in Northern New Mexico!
The Angel Fire Country Club is a remarkable place to seal your wedding vows! The lush grass and gorgeous pine offer a beautiful, green backdrop that few other venues can compete with. Wheeler Peak (New Mexico’s tallest mountain) is visible from the outdoor, summer reception area; additionally you are surrounded by mountains as you sit at 8600 feet.
My favorite shoots are when I have the opportunity to capture the precious smiles of children. My first photography job was actually a “mall job” taking photographs of kids. My manager was at least 10 years younger than me and I had to wear a necktie, the experience was humiliating. However, I did learn some “tricks” to get the young ones to smile, and this knowledge has been totally invaluable to me.
This little guy was “text book” in responding to my smiling tricks. We documented these smiles in less than five minutes AND had a blast doing it! I’ve been photographing this little man since he was just days old. I love my job.
It never ceases to amazing me how many people travel to Taos to get married! It is not necessarily “easy” to get here. Usually people need to fly into Albuquerque and then rent a car to make the 2.5 hour drive to Taos which is located in Northern New Mexico. When there are guests attending the wedding celebrations, there is a lot of thought and preparation into the travel alone!
However I do believe that Taos must be the perfect place to get married! The weather here is perfect nearly every day. The people here are genuinely kind and helpful. The views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range and sagebrush filled mesas are inspiring and look as though they are out of a book. The architecture and “off the grid” living are unique and special.
So even if Taos is not a hop, skip, and jump away, the wonder of Taos is worth it. Consider Taos, New Mexico to be your destination wedding venue. Bring your guests or consider eloping off the beaten path, in a place that used to be referred to as the wild west.
Babies change so extremely fast! The difference in a baby’s face and body is so extreme from newborn, to three months, to six months, to 12 months. Additionally, at three months a baby holds his head up, at six months a baby is sitting up, at nine months standing up, at 12 months a baby is usually walking. These are the milestones that you want your photographer to capture during the 3/6/9/12 month baby portrait photo sessions. Many mothers schedule these photo shoots at their maternity sessions to make sure it’s in the calendar!
