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.
Sonya and Adam are going to be wed this summer in Questa and will have their wedding reception at the Red River Convention Center! After rescheduling a few times, we finally captured this family and engagement session on a calm morning of what was otherwise a windy spring day in April. We were definitely “on the move” as this darling little boy is full of energy and wants to RUN!! Of course these kids will be the flower girl and ring bearer for the July wedding.
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!
