John Dunn Bridge Summer Vow Renewal

John Dunn Bridge Summer Vow Renewal

For their 20 year celebration, Cyndi and Jorge renewed their wedding vows on the banks of the Rio Grande in Arroyo Hondo, northern New Mexico. The historic John Dunn Bridge is a beautiful background as it proudly sits over the Big River. This bridge was built in the 1930’s and was the only way to travel into Taos County from the western side of the gorge. Cyndi and Jorge brought their best-dog to stand with them and the ceremony was performed by Dan Jones of Embracing Ceremony. This private vow renewal was done early in the morning as this is a popular local swimming hangout in the afternoon.

Winter Photoshoot of Couple Celebrating an Anniversary!

These portraits are of my mom and dad!! It was less than seven degrees out, which is the coldest weather I’ve ever shot my camera in. My camera (Canon, of course) worked perfectly and I was wearing a parka so I was fine, it was my parents who really had to suffer (thank goodness I work fast and we took less than ten photos)! The snowfall the day before provided us with beautiful backgrounds and high contrast as the wood on the house and the dark evergreens were covered with snow.

June is Pride Month

June is Pride Month

June is Pride month and so this month I honor the LGBTQIA community! I have shot SO MANY same-sex marriages, I feel lucky!! Here is a small handful of some of the weddings that I could remember off of the top of my head. Someday my son (now seven-years-old) will be shocked that I lived in a time when gay marriage was against the law. Unbelievable. Today I celebrate diversity and I raise a glass to all of the same-sex marriages I have had the honor of documenting over the years.

Anniversary Sitting with Golden Aspen Leaves

These ladies were married five years ago, in a double wedding ceremony with their best friends (two males). Dan Jones was the officiant for this wedding and I was the photographer. The six of us had a wonderful time on the wedding hike and ceremony adventure. Dan and I named these people, “the fabulous four.” Fast forward to this anniversary shoot! Even though the guys were not interested in an anniversary shoot, we did get a pic of all four of these besties when we shot the ladies. Congratulations on five years to both of these couples. What an awesome team of friends!!

Christmas Portraits for Gifts

Christmas Portraits for Gifts

What an absolute pleasure to hangout with this couple for an hour capturing these photos. Although we haven’t had significant snow this season, the beautiful yellow grasses and brown earth tones are soft and stunning backgrounds. We did a quick outfit change so we could get some different styles in the images. Celebrating their 25th anniversary, Cynthia and Dave will frame some of these prints and give them to their kids for Christmas gifts.

Vow Renewal Ceremony in Taos, NM

Vow Renewal Ceremony in Taos, NM

Laura and David tied the knot 12 years ago…and reaffirmed their vows to one another last weekend. A vow renewal is the perfect way to celebrate your marriage, and to reaffirm your commitment to each other.
Laura and David traveled to Taos to have their vow renewal ceremony at popular bed and breakfast, Hacienda del Sol. The “bride” and “groom” purchased one of the Hacienda’s wedding elopement packages that includes a small locally made wedding cake, professional flowers, a professional photographer (that’s us!), a wedding officiant, and two witnesses!
