First Wedding Photographed in 2018

This bride and groom had never been to Taos before their wedding; their best friends (from Albuquerque) suggested this resort in Taos and the wedding location was decided!
It was the 5th of January and it was over 50 degrees on this warm winter day. We did the pre-wedding photos outdoors and then moved into a gallery with a pretty view of treetops! Congratulations to Lori and Matt and here’s to the first wedding photographed in 2018!

Destination Wedding and Elopement Wedding Ceremony in Town of Taos

This was a delightful elopement! This couple came from Northern California to elope in Taos! Judge Shannon presided over the very short ceremony which left us a lot of time to get some romanticy shots of the bride and groom. We managed to carry out this ceremony/photography during a clearing on a stormy evening. Congratulations to these newly weds and thank you for coming to Northern New Mexico for your destination wedding!

Lesbians from the East Coast Elope in Taos, NM

These awesome women have been together for 35 years. They knew that “one day” same-sex marriages would be legal, they never thought it would happen in their lifetime.
When this couple went to the county clerk to pick up their wedding license, the woman behind the counter wished the engaged congratulations and explained that she had just married her girlfriend, now wife. So the county clerk employee and her wife stood up as witnesses for the elder brides.
It was a joy and honor to take photos of this wedding. We all laughed and we all cried. Cheers to these newlyweds!

Same-Sex Marriage Elopement from Albuquerque

These ladies came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope! Julie and Theresa’s friends and family were clueless to their “real” plans of their weekend rendezvous, aka Their Taos Wedding!! The weather was absolutely perfect for this February 4th outdoor wedding ceremony. The same-sex marriage was officiated by Reverend Dan Jones of Taos’ Embracing Ceremony. Erika and Mark of Hacienda del Sol were the witnesses for this tiny wedding. The brides celebrated with stories, laughs, cake, and champagne after a twenty minute ceremony and some wedding photos. Congrats to this beautiful couple!!

Outdoor January Wedding at 17 Degrees

Maggie and Cory decided that the 17 degrees weather was fine a fine temperature for an outdoor wedding! This couple, adorned in fishnets, suspenders, and Chuck Taylors, were wed at local bed and breakfast, Hacienda del Sol. The bride and groom’s best friends joined them on the journey from Albuquerque to Taos for the early January destination wedding. Congratulations to Maggie and Cory, what a photogenic wedding!
