Red Rock Canyon family photos :: the Smiths

I was the lucky photographer for Alex and Emily’s wedding in 2012, and exactly six years to the day later, I was the lucky photographer who got to make some new portraits of them with their three beautiful children in Red Rock Canyon. Just look at these gorgeous babies! As for Emily and Alex, I was so happy to see them again, I couldn’t stop talking, I wanted to hear all that they’ve been up to since they got married! (Besides making babies, that is.) By the way, Emily’s a family photographer too, and her work is beautiful! If you’re lucky enough to live in south central New Mexico, you can have her do YOUR family pictures. Follow Emily here on Instagram:  (@mrs.emilysmith). 

Mount Princeton Hot Springs wedding :: Samantha + Joe

I was absolutely thrilled to be the photographer for Joe and Samantha’s wedding. Why, you ask? Because I’ve been photographing Sam since she was a tweenager, and now look at her! I was over the moon when they got engaged and tapped me for the photography. And I couldn’t have picked a better guy for her. Joe and Sam make a great team! Their wedding at the Mount Princeton Hot Springs was perfect (but who would expect less from Sam?), and the party was awesome fun. Congratulations Sam and Joe! I’m so happy for you!

Belmar Park family portraits

Will you look at this sweet family?!? As you can see, Amy and Tyler are working on baby #3, and he or she is due to arrive later this month. We did these portraits last month in Belmar Park to document Amy’s beautiful belly, but also to capture this moment in time before they become a family of five. Watch this space for newborn portraits when their littlest decides to join us!

Flying Horse Ranch wedding :: Deanna + Paolo

These two sweethearts tied the knot at beautiful Flying Horse Ranch in a morning ceremony followed by brunch. They kept things casual and personal; Deanna chose to go barefoot while and Paolo and his groomsmen all wore black Converse. I love it! I also love that they opted for donuts instead of a big wedding cake, and when they were introduced into the party, tiny Deanna dipped Paolo dramatically and gave him a big smooch! So fun! I had a wonderful time documenting all the love surrounding this sweet couple. Congrats Paolo and Deanna!


Hillside Gardens wedding :: Sonja + Greg

A perfect day for an outdoor wedding! Greg and Sonja’s event happened on the first really warm day of the year, and we were surrounded by flowers, love and happiness at beautiful Hillside Gardens. The lilacs were in full bloom and the scent was intoxicating! But Sonja was even more intoxicating in her beautiful lace gown. You can see how in love Greg is, just look at the expression on his face as she walked up the aisle! Congratulations Sonja and Greg! It was the best day!
