These two are at school in UNM in Albuquerque and will get married up in Northern New Mexico right on the river! We started this shoot at one location and drove less than four miles to another location. The photos look like they are in completely different areas with the warm sunshine in some, and cold shad and snow in the others. We were so lucky to have a little bit of snow for this shoot, the first snow portraits I’ve taken this winter, and it’s January!!
I’m so excited for these two to tie-the-knot at Angel Fire Resort this summer!! Both Monica and George are locals in Taos, New Mexico. We met out at the bridge to get the Taos landscapes in the backgrounds: the gorge, the Rio Grande, and Three Peaks. Both Monica and George had an outfit change so they could get some casual and some ‘fancy’ photos! It doesn’t show in these engagement pictures, but the temperature was COLD on this January day and no doubt these two are looking forward to their warm June wedding!
This was a family shoot that turned into a proposal (with a guitarist!) which turned into a surprise family gathering which turned into a celebration which turned into an engagement shoot! Congratulations to Jaxx’s parents who are engaged to get married! This family came from Oklahoma and Texas to ski and enjoy a family vacation in Taos. Congratulations to Haley and Jake on their engagement!!
We had this prenatal shoot on the schedule when this mama was three months pregnant and these pictures were taken three weeks before the baby was born! This was the coldest shoot that Poetic Images did in December in 2017. The temperature was lower than 20 degrees when we got started (and everyone had to breathe on cue so “breath smoake” wasn’t in the photos), amazing! Congratulations to this entire family and the recent birth of baby William! I had fun on this fun December family shoot!
Kim and Bob brought their puppy along for a few photos together before their elopement in Taos, NM! This was the first time that I photographed a wedding at the Taos Art Museum. The museum and workhouse light is amazing and the woodwork is so giving to photography! This couple was married on the top floor of the museum which was a room full of windows that created beautiful light on the floor. The weather was sunny and warm and perfect for an afternoon wedding in February! What a pleasure to photograph at a new wedding venue right in downtown Taos!
