These beautiful women had gorgeous smoky light from the Hermit’s Peak and Calf Canyon wildfires 20 miles away. The 9am wedding ceremony was right off of the West Rim trail near the Rio Grande Gorge bridge rest area. The brides-in-blue wore gorgeous smiles and sneakers with their outfits. Dan Jones officiated the elopement ceremony and two big-horned sheep stopped to watch as the women stated their vows.
Manndi and Justin’s wedding ceremony was indoors El Pueblito United Methodist Church in El Prado, NM. The stained glass altar backdrop was pretty with the Christmas decorations. This bride and groom eloped to Taos with dreams of an outdoor ceremony with mountain views. Instead they were greeted by a blizzard, not a mountain in sight! After their wedding ceremony the newlyweds laughed and played in the snow, posed for photos, and stayed warm by the power of love.
On New Year’s Day I had the pleasure of photographing this formal resort elopement in the round room of El Monte Sagrado. Howard Bad Hand led the soft vows after a quiet sage smudging ceremony. The wedding couple was blessed as were their rings and quiet prayers were offered. The tobacco ties were gorgeous and because the “something blue” of the wedding.
Local Taos couple, Joann and James, squeezed in their wedding before the giant blizzard that greeted 2022! This afternoon wedding ceremony was moved to the living room at Hacienda del Sol which was cozy and warm with the fire. Crystal Martinez read the nuptials as the bride and groom exchanged vows and rings. The micro wedding had seven guests: the moms and five dear friends. We captured pictures of the
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!
This fun couple had such a great wedding date…1-11-22! Although this couple traveled to Arroyo Hondo from Texas and the temperature was 26 degrees I don’t think Carrie and Matt felt the cool air one bit. The elopement on their rental’s porch had beautiful views and a blue fire burned nearby. We captured the obligatory frisking shots since Matt is a cop. This lawyer/cop team are on their way to happily ever after! Congratulations!
