Flowers, Bouquets, Boutonnieres, oh my!

Even if you aren’t a “flowery person,” there’s no doubt about it, the flowers are an important asset to your wedding pictures! Flowers are a burst of color in your photos and can add a little bit of brightness to what is often a photo with a black suit and white dress. Your flowers can be an expression of your favorite season, color, or plant. A great florist can help you incorporate succulents, wildflowers, or even pieces of beautiful weeds and golden wheat into your wedding bouquet. Wedding bouquets can be wrapped in burlap, hemp, ribbon, and twine to really show your style. A bouquet can be giant (helps to bring out your bicep muscles in your photos, haha), or tiny. They can be long or short stem. I’ve seen glass bouquets, clay bouquets, and dried flower bouquets. The imagination is the limit.
I love it when brides have stunning flowers to hold. I love using the flowers as a frame for a bride’s face, or as a background for a traditional ring photograph. I feel like the flowers are an important piece of the wedding for many reasons and should be included 100% of the time.

June is Pride Month

June is Pride Month

June is Pride month and so this month I honor the LGBTQIA community! I have shot SO MANY same-sex marriages, I feel lucky!! Here is a small handful of some of the weddings that I could remember off of the top of my head. Someday my son (now seven-years-old) will be shocked that I lived in a time when gay marriage was against the law. Unbelievable. Today I celebrate diversity and I raise a glass to all of the same-sex marriages I have had the honor of documenting over the years.

Vow Renewal at Ojo Caliente Labyrinth

Vow Renewal at Ojo Caliente Labyrinth

After 20 years, these two decided to renew their wedding vows!! The sunset ceremony took place in Ojo Caliente, NM at the spa’s labyrinth. The light was beautiful and the “bride” and “groom” were so relaxed since this was “just” a vow renewal (their words)! The wedding ceremony written by Dan Jones integrated the labyrinth into the words and was spoken as the couple walked the maze. These two showed their light attitude in a high five as they passed one another during their ceremonious walk. A beautiful evening in Ojo Caliente.
