Kath and Brian are visiting Taos from New York City and wanted some photos with the mountains. We had a beautiful overcast sky and the mountains were on their best display. I loved that this couple wore hiking boots with their dress-up gear (they hiked the South Boundary Trail the day before)! We took some traditional photos and some more casual photos with the landscape and some local art. By the end of our shoot the sunshine was out and it felt like a Taos summertime again!
This was a fun morning engagement session with a couple that has a new home in Taos! It was fun to use different spaces around Chasity and Bil’s new home. The mountain views are so inviting out on the mesa, with or without the fire-season smoke! This couple will also host their September wedding at their house with wedding guests coming from all over the United States. Congratulations on a wonderful engagement!
Smoke from the Hermit’s Peak and Calf Canyon wildfire played with the light at this early morning wedding near the Rio Grande gorge. The brides-in-blue were excited and giddy to finally tie the knot. Dan Jones officiated the elopement and two big-horned sheep watched the women state their wedding vows.
Deanna and Wyatt were stuck in New Mexico when the entire country shut down due to Covid in May of 2020. Forced into backcountry camping, these two to completely fell in love with Carson National Forest and the beauty of northern New Mexico. They decided to travel back to Taos this summer to discover some new places and revisit some places that were closed the first time they came through. And that’s when Wyatt proposed to Deanna…and the wedding planning began, for a New Mexico wedding! This destination wedding will take place at Shady Brook in Taos Canyon in July of 2022!
We shot some pics at the future wedding site at Shady Brook, and with the sign that welcomed them to their future wedding venue. Afterwards we popped over to a nearby campground and had a great hike up to the popular cave of Taos Canyon. The trail was quiet and cool and the forest was lusciously green after the six weeks of recent monsoons.
Congratulations to Deanna and Wyatt and cheers to their upcoming New Mexico wedding!
For a dark, windy, winter evening, we rocked this engagement sitting and captured some amazing engagement photos. These women came to Taos from Portland, Oregon for a pandemic-getaway. They rented a house out on the mesa and they had their own little private courtyard complete with sculptures, prayer flags, and a labyrinth. We were able to use the photogenic design also incorporating the endless sea of sage and the Sangre de Cristo mountain range too. Congratulations to these women and their happily ever after, in progress!
This marriage proposal happened on the most amazing night. The wind was brisk and gusty, but it calmed down for our shoot! The sky turned the most magical color of blue. This is a match made in heaven and a marriage that will last forever!! Leah and Kasey enjoyed a weekend up in Taos to get away from Albuquerque during the pandemic. They stayed at local bed and breakfast Adobe and Pines where their proposal took place! We went to local hiking trails south of Taos for the photos on the mesa and the beautiful blue sky.
