Howard Badhand is a Lakota Native whom preforms wedding ceremonies in New Mexico and South Dakota. This couple came to have their destination wedding at El Monte Sagrado here in Taos, NM. The ceremony took place in a round room and had a spiritual flavor to reflect the Native culture of Northern New Mexico. The Native American peace pipe, prayer ribbons, and star quilt were integrated into the ceremony as well as western traditional wedding rings and wedding vows.
This couple was all cuddles and smiles, which makes our job easy!! An engagement session actually creates cuddles and smiles, as your photographer will put you into poses that are oh-so-romantic. An engagement sitting only takes about 45 minutes and is a great way for you to get to know your wedding photographer and see samples of his/her work before your “big day.” Engagement shoots are done anywhere from a month to a year prior to your wedding and the photos are often times used for invitations, thank you cards, and to display at your wedding reception.
Our high school photography sessions are so popular! No matter what time of year we do your high school senior’s pictures, we have fantastic natural backgrounds to show off your incredible senior and his/her personality. We love it when your senior brings several different changes of clothing, so we can capture various attitudes and interests. We also allow extra time for all of our senior sittings so there is plenty of time for different hair-dos and jewelry. Call us to schedule your senior’s photographs today!
