Paula and Dan… What can I say about this wedding? From the to-die-for Floral Arch to the perfectly matched arm-bands on the bridesmaids. From the breath-taking mountain views, to the hilarious group of friends surrounding them, Paula and Dan’s wedding at Purgatory Resort was absolutely one for the record books. It was full of laughter […]

Vicki and Jerry took influence from the venue and from New Mexico’s history in their design, […]

Mariah planned her ceremony to take place around sunset so her photos would begin and end during golden hour: the magic hour […]

This past Friday I packed up my snow boots and my cameras and headed North to Colorado. This was my first Breckenridge wedding, and I found myself in the cutest little Ski town I’ve EVER seen.

La Mesita Ranch is one of my favorite venues in Santa Fe — it’s so unique! There’s a spacious, charming courtyard, tons of natural beauty, and true Southwestern flair. Plus it has horses! What’s not to love? Mia and Ian were an amazing couple to photograph. They were friendly, easygoing, and so much fun to […]

A Nature Pointe wedding + Dia de los Muertos + two love birds = Perfection! Nature Pointe is a gem of a venue located just a few miles north of Albuquerque full of Southwest charm, and for Aundria and Brandon’s big day it was also full of skulls and colorful Mexican decor! Aundria and Brandon had […]
