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 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.
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!!
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.
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!
This beautiful couple celebrated 70 years of marriage with a huge family reunion and a small portrait session. Poetic Images comes to your location to make your life easier. Give our studio a call and let’s set up your anniversary (or family, children, business, engagement, etc) portraits today!
