Small Wedding at SpiriTaos with Local Bride and Groom

These locals brought their best friends and closest family for a lovely ceremony with Taos mountain views and a beautiful garden! Hannah and Ryan couldn’t have known that they would get the best night in June for their outdoor summertime ceremony. The temperature was perfect and the breeze was ever so slight. The priority photos for this bride and groom were romantics, so we had fun walking around and getting creative.

Taos Goji Farm

It’s always fun to photograph one of our wedding packages at The Taos Goji Farm!
This couple has been together since they were 13/14 year old. They were so easy going and fun to photograph!!
This destination wedding (elopement in fact) with officiant Dan Jones presiding, took place while the flower girl ran around doing her own thing (she didn’t go far)! After the ceremony we were able to capture some fun family photos with the alpacas. Congratulations to these young newlyweds who have already been together over a decade!

May Wedding On Rim of Rio Grande Gorge

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!

What fun to shoot another one of Dan Jones / Embracing Ceremony’s wedding packages at the Taos Art Museum! We had beautiful weather and beautiful light at this late afternoon wedding elopement. Hannah and Kelly booked their hotel prior to knowing their wedding site, and it turns up they were staying right next door! They also walked to their dinner site at nearby Lamberts. Cheers to the newlyweds!
