Johnny & Aja's Elena Gallegos Wedding

I absolutely love capturing those intimate moments for my clients during their wedding day, but when I get to do it for friends it makes my job that much sweeter. Johnny and Aja are accomplished attorneys and amazing individuals dedicating their time and career for the betterment of our society. I have the honor of calling them both of my friends and when they came to me and asked if I would photograph their wedding I was overcome with joy.

They both love the outdoors as much as I do and decided to have a small ceremony at the beautiful Elena Gallegos Park tucked into the Sandia Foothills. They exchanged vows with all their close family and friends surrounding them. Even their fur child, Milton, had a special seat reserved for him in the front row. 

After the "I Do's" were said they met up with their guests later that evening at the Banque Lofts in downtown Albuquerque to party the night away! Johnny and Aja kicked off the dancing with the tradition of "Jumping the Broom" and their bridal party surprised the newlyweds with a fun, coordinated dance towards the end of the night. 

Enjoy taking a peek into their amazing wedding day! Happy almost one year anniversary Johnny and Aja! :o)

Cody + Hilary's Albuquerque Hotel Wedding

Cody and Hilary had the most romantic hometown wedding at Hotel Albuquerque. I still can't get over how much fun I had with them and their amazing family and friends. Their day started with some sunshine, but the rain slowly graced us with its presence throughout the day. Before the rain started, I was able to capture the sweetest first look between these two! Just wait until you see the reaction Cody had when he first saw Hilary! 

The ceremony location took place under a beautiful vine wrapped arbor lush enough to keep the rain off everyone and the happy couple were able to continue reading their vows to one another. These two have such an incredible presence about their relationship that I won't lie when I say I had tear filled eyes behind my camera during their ceremony. I'm sure when you see the photos you'll be able to feel the love as well. 

Cody and Hilary are some of the kindest, most loving people I've ever met! I knew they were the perfect couple for me to photograph when Hilary mentioned they are big animal lovers, like me! They adorned their gorgeous (and yummy) wedding cake with a custom cake topper of them and their sweet fur babies. I wish I had thought to do that when I had my wedding, lol. It's so cute! 

I could photograph these newlyweds forever, and I'm so incredibly blessed that they trusted me to document their perfect day. Congratulations again you two lovebirds!

JC + Victoria's Taos Wedding

This sweet, intimate Taos wedding is one I'll never forget! Victoria and JC had the most romantic wedding day among family and friends at the beautiful El Monte Sagrado Resort in Taos, New Mexico. This city holds a special place in their hearts, so it was the perfect location for these two to tie the knot.

Thank you for trusting me to document every moment of it for you!
