Taos Wedding on New Year’s Day!

Laila and Joe came all the way from Oklahoma City, OK to get married in Taos, NM! This small and intimate wedding was held at Hacienda del Sol, a bed and breakfast in Taos that caters to many destination weddings. The brisk air didn’t stop this couple from stepping outside to take some pictures with the beautiful and wintery backgrounds that January in Taos offers. The ceremony took place inside of the charming hacienda, in front of a warm fireplace, with Reverend Karen Baldwin officiating.

Church Wedding in Angel Fire, NM

There is nothing like a wedding during the holidays! Julie and Steve were wed during Christmastime at the beautiful United Church of Angel Fire, NM. Their traditional wedding ceremony was small and intimate and all of their guests joined them at the altar. After the knot was tied, Julie and Steve braved the cold for some photographs in front of the mountains which were adorned snow and a sunset.

Family Fun at Photo Session

The first photo shoot I did for this family is when Cielo was a newborn baby, that was over six years ago now! It’s hard to believe that I have been a business owner and photographer in Taos for seven years now, and before that a professional photographer in Albuquerque for three additional years. It’s hard to believe how the last ten years have flown!
Happy New Year to all of my clients, the young and the old. Thank you so much for making the last ten years of my life so special and so memorable–here’s to (at least) ten more years of smiles!!

Engagement Photo Shoot in the Snow

This couple has a wedding scheduled at Hacienda del Sol in Taos, NM on the first day of 2012. At the beginning of December, they called the Town of Taos about obtaining their marriage license and they found out that all government offices in Taos would be closed on Friday, December 30 through January 2nd, the only days Laila and Joe would be in Taos! So this smiley couple drove from Oklahoma City to Taos for a “quick” road trip, all so they would have a marriage license in hand for their wedding on New Years Day.
What an adventure!!

Catching Smiles in our Photography Studio

During the cold winter days here in Northern New Mexico, we are grateful to use our private (and warm) studio in Taos to capture your child’s portraits. Lola’s mommy wanted photographs of her daughter “in her element” and I believe we accomplished that in this photo shoot. Lola has a very theatrical side to her and we caught her happy, sad, playful, and serious moods. Lola loves her dog, high heels, and the color pink.
