Verano del amor

Fate has it’s way! For Heather and Eric it was as simple as a forgotten Spanish dictionary. They met as students at IU Bloomington in a Spanish class and their romance blossomed from there. So I suppose choosing Santa Fe as their wedding destination could be interpreted as a theme! They had a lovely outdoor ceremony at La Posada de Santa Fe, officiated by the bride’s Aunt Beth. It was an amazing day and I had so much fun with Heather and Eric. And I was touched to discover that it was also Heather’s parents 33rd wedding anniversary that same day…how sweet and so very meaningful.

Congratulations to the bride and groom and congratulations to Nancy and Bob…may both couples be blessed with many years of love and happiness together!

Love at Loretto Chapel

Good things come to those who wait… Kristi and Pearce had planned for their Santa Fe destination wedding to take place last year in March, however a family circumstance caused them to postpone their original plan. So everyone was delighted that they were able to travel here last week from Oklahoma for their wedding at the Loretto Chapel. After the ceremony, passersby cheered for them and offered warm wishes as the happy couple and I took to the streets of downtown Santa Fe. It was a perfect Spring day and I truly enjoyed my time with these two sweet people!

A Fiesta of Color!

I love it when fellow photographers ask me to photograph their wedding. It is a special honor to have another artist love your work and trust you to capture their day. The Hacienda Doña Andrea is one of my favorite Santa Fe wedding venues and I’ve had the privilege to photograph weddings there for the past 10 years. That being said, I have NEVER seen it look so great. Stefanie and Jacob did an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G job with decorating the entire hacienda, indoors and out. It was stunningly streamed with papel picado and Mexican paper flowers galore. My jaw dropped when I arrived and saw what all they had done! It was incredibly beautiful and festive…the perfect backdrop for their intimate, heartfelt wedding celebration.

Love at La Fonda

I always feel blessed to be around couples who love each other and who can’t help but show it! Julia and Zach were childhood friends that fell in love. It is easy to tell they’ve known each other for a long time because of how relaxed, silly and loving they are with each other.

They said “I Do” on the beautiful terrace of the La Fonda Hotel in downtown Santa Fe with the St. Francis Cathedral and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains as the backdrop to their wedding. Early October is perfect time to get married in Northern New Mexico and this day was no exception. Accompanied by their beloved dogs, Charlie and Louis, as ring bearer and best dog, their close friends, and their incredibly supportive families, it was truly a day to be remembered.

I’m a Cowboy Baby!

Don’t let anyone tell you that cowboys (or girls) don’t know how to have a good time! I had an absolute blast chasing Angela and Bode around with my camera on their wedding day. It was truly an amazing celebration…heart felt and rowdy, just like I like it! A small village of people, about 400, came from Texas and New Mexico to witness the couple take their vows at the Hyatt Tamaya…then everyone ate, drank and danced the night away. It was a wonderful time, best party ever! And I loved her grandparents, such a sweet couple who have been married over 50 years…they are a wonderful example of marriage for their family. Congratulations to Angela and Bode, may you be blessed to share your lives together for as many years.
