When I got a call with a 903 area code I just assumed it was a family member calling from back home, which is East Texas. But actually it was someone looking for a photographer for their upcoming elopement. I was so excited, I said… “are you calling from Tyler Texas?” …turns out the soon bride-to-be is also a native East Texan, what a small world!
It was just the two of them, saying their vows on a warm summer’s evening in Santa Fe at the historic Loretto Chapel. Some years ago on a hunting trip to New Mexico, David and his son drove through Santa Fe and visited the Chapel, and it made a profound impression on him. So naturally the Chapel was the perfect place for Kelly and David to say “I do”. And it was a joy for me to get to know them both and not only be their photographer but also a signed witness to the marriage!
Loretto Chapel – Nothing compares to the beauty of Loretto Chapel. I’ve had the privilege to photograph in the chapel for more than a decade and it never ceases to amaze me. Santa Fe enjoys the honor of being home to the first Gothic structure built West of the Mississippi river. The chapel is truly breathtaking and the miraculous staircase is an incredible architectural feat to behold. It is a joy for me to photograph couples at the Chapel.
