This senior shoot was a true adventure at the Taos Ski Valley! After William and I took many photos for almost two hours, we rode the chair lift up the mountain to get some final pictures with a view. As soon as we got off the chairlift, it closed down because lightening was detected nearby. So here we are at the top of the mountain with lightening and they advise us hike down. Upon consideration of safety, we were then offered a ride down by the lift operator, in an old suburban, which we were happy to take.
With fur capes and Sorel snow boots, the bride, bridesmaids, and flower girls were decked out and ready for this wintertime wedding in Red River, NM! The ceremony took place in Carson National Forest at Junebug Campground. The bride and groom travelled from Texas for their destination micro wedding in this winter wonderland. The bride, groom, and guests were all crying as the vows and kiss sealed their nuptials. The Ponderosa pines and icy pond were the perfect backdrop for this winter wedding. Congratulations to Kyle and Amberly!
Sabrina and Joshua were married at Taos Ski Valley in October. Their wedding elopement was on a foot bridge which was private and quiet. We found a patch of snow after the ceremony and shot the first snow-shots of this winter season! Joshua’s best dog was dressed in a necktie. Dan Jones officiated the ceremony for and the flowers were designed by Mercedes Valdez of Elegante Florals.
After the beautiful snow at the Taos Ski Valley, it was easy to decide that the ski valley would, in fact, be the most stunning place in Taos County to have a wedding elopement! With Embracing Ceremony officiating, this Texas-couple was wed in the mountains of Northern New Mexico in fresh powdery snow. Adorned with snow boots and a perfect white jacket, the bride was one with the snow and didn’t complain of the cold. Here’s to wintertime weddings, sunny afternoons, and tons of snow!
This bride and groom, from Texas, planned their elopement to be in Taos, NM, in October… and they sweetly included their mothers in on the details, the planning, and ultimately the ceremony itself! You KNOW the moms are special when they are invited to ‘tag along’ to an elopement! These moms felt so honored and I spoke with them as many (if not more) times than the bride and groom before their wedding day.
The Taos Ski Valley was the decided location for this short ceremony! Brandi and Robert found a location that included the looming mountains and pine trees. Because of the pandemic and the New Mexico lockdown, there were very few people out-and-about and we felt like the entire mountain was ours. Additionally, we all made a new bird-friend who particularly loved to follow the groom around. We had many laughs and captured some great shots.
