It was unusually hot outside on this June day, but the large cottonwoods and weeping willows at El Monte Sagrado kept everyone cool at this outdoor wedding! Brittany and Reed were perfectly on time for their photos and we were able to get the pre-wedding, ceremony, and altar photos with out a hiccup (hooray)! The bride and groom and guests had so much fun at the ballroom reception with hilarious photo props and tons of laughing! Congratulations to Brittany and Reed!
What fun to photograph the bride and bridesmaids at popular resort, Buffalo Thunder just North of Santa Fe. Maurine and Antonio’s wedding ceremony followed the pre-wedding photos and took place at famous pilgrimage site and Catholic Church: El Santuario de Chimayo. The ceremony was watched by both personal guests of the bride and groom, and by tourists whom were just visiting the sacred site. A random dog made himself comfortable next to the bridesmaids’ feet during the ceremony.
We traveled back to Taos for an awesome New Mexico reception (400+ people) at Sagebrush Convention Center. The band had everyone up and moving on the dance floor. The newly weds were lucky to have a beautiful sunset bless their marriage and we captured some outstanding silhouettes. Congratulations to Maurine (from Angel Fire) and Antonio (from Taos)!
This gorgeous new baby came into the world at the end of May and was only six-weeks-old for this shoot. In 14 years of shooting, I have never had a 6-week-old smiling on-command! This baby also rolls over already…what an advanced little model! We had fun with little Maya, and after the shoot her sister, Luka (the dog), wanted to get some professional portraits in a tutu too!
We love shooting at your home for these new baby shoots. Not only does it make the baby more comfortable but it helps mama not have to leave home as well! If you are pregnant, schedule your baby’s first shoot now!
This young, Texas couple chose Hacienda del Sol in Taos to host their small, destination wedding. After their ceremony, wedding cake, and toast reception, we ventured to a few other locations in and around Taos to take some wedding pictures! This bride and groom were so easy going and had so much fun even though we were doing wedding portraits. Congratulations to beautiful newlyweds, Tasha and Brandon!
After many months of beautiful browns in the backgrounds, we are finally moving onto beautiful, green backgrounds! I absolutely love this time of year! I forget how many different tones of green our earth shares. How one flower can brighten an entire portrait!
We have been busy with family and baby portraits this spring. The grass is enticing to the babies, the warm weather is actually fun to hangout in (as opposed to those winter shoots)! Call Poetic Images to schedule your springtime photo shoot of your loved ones. Most photo sittings are done in under an hour and all of your photo proofing is done online from the comfort of your home!
Vanessa and Geno are engaged to be married in two weeks! We had a lot of fun during this photo shoot. Geno is funny and Vanessa just egged him on…definitely a match made in heaven! Many times I encourage my shoots to bring a change of clothing. This was the first time (EVER!) that I’ve had the groom bring a change of outfits but not the bride. That gave all of us a good chuckle! Many congrats (two weeks early) to Vanessa and Geno!
