The Best Ever Ending of a Beginning

The Best Ever Ending of a Beginning

Jessica and Auda are brides from Texas who came to their New Mexico neighbors to get married in front of Taos Mountain at SpiriTaos. The photos from Jessica and Auda’s wedding are some of my favorite “end of ceremony” photos ever. Usually the married couple kisses and then walks down the aisle for the recessional. Jessica and Auda were different. Their emotion and excitement was ecstatically beautiful and so photogenic. These are 11 successive images that I captured in less than one minute at the end of this ceremony. And they are beautiful.

Small Wedding at Palacio de Marquesa in Taos, NM

This Labor Day weekend wedding took place at El Monte Sagrado’s sister-site Palacio de Marquesa right in the center of Taos. Jill and David came to New Mexico from Texas to share their vows with their friends and family. The light was outstanding and the ceremony, presided by Dan Jones, was beautiful. After the wedding there was a sit dinner by local caterer, Manna, which is run by Chef Rochelle Woollard.

I captured this family shoot while I was at an destination wedding in Utah! It’s so fun to shoot in a place that is wet and damp and the ground is soft, such a different environment from New Mexico. I was also excited to include Luka the dog! I love to have the four-legged-friends join the shoot for at least one shot if possible.

Although we have been shooting tons of weddings, we always are shooting family, baby, and children’s portraits as well! The summertime is a wonderful time for children’s portraits as we have plenty of backgrounds and shady areas for children who may get bored if they are in one spot for too long! We captured Eli and Mr. Lion standing up for a few poses before we had to sit the little wiggle worm down. And then he felt like such a big boy sitting on the wall! Call us to capture your kids’ smiles in portraits that will touch your heart forever.

Small Wedding at Taos Ski Valley Waterfall

Small Wedding at Taos Ski Valley Waterfall

This awesome family came from Texas to hike up the Taos Ski Valley mountain to have this fabulous waterfall as the backdrop to their wedding ceremony. It was a gorgeous morning for a destination wedding. The delightful baby-daughter of the bride and groom slept in her car seat during the hike and woke up just as the ceremony started. This bride and groom were so relaxed and continued the ceremony with mom holding her daughter. Everyone was happy.
The Taos Ski Valley is a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony in the summer as well as the winter. This super fun wedding was followed by a reception afterwards at skiers and locals’ favorite restaurant, The Bavarian.

After the vows the couple exchanged necklaces instead of rings. The ceremony is currently a secret until they announce their marriage “down the road” when they are with friends and family. Congratulations to Denise and Jon!
