Engagement Inspo - Old Town Albuquerque

When it comes to engagements, everyone that knows our little team knows how much we just love exploring national parks and beautiful nature reserves around our sweet little Southwestern state, but we never say know to an engagement session in Old Town Albuquerque. Decked out with the coolest adobe buildings, subtle New Mexican details, and plenty of unique charm, this special little part of Albuquerque always gets us in our feels. If you’re looking for a cozy spot for your engagement session without going into the wilderness, Old Town might just be the perfect fit.

Geoff + Jocelyn, a Colorful Hacienda Doña Andrea Wedding

Geoff and Jocelyn invited us to party with them on a Monday (!) high above Madrid, NM at Hacienda Doña Andrea. This weekday wedding was one for the books: intimate, laughter filled, and completely amazing!

These lovers met at a mutual friend’s BBQ while petting the same dog (honestly the best way to meet anyone) and Geoff proposed in 2018 over Veteran’s Day Weekend during a road trip between LA and San Francisco. He asked Jocelyn to be his wife on Windy Hill, a special place from his childhood, and in addition to giving her a gorgeous ring, Geoff also gave her a photo album about their love story (forever teary eyed over this detail).

We adored how much fun and stress free Geoff and Jocelyn’s June wedding truly was, from their “friend testimonials” during the ceremony (complete with quotes from Wedding Crashers) to their uber pretty romantics around Hacienda Doña Andrea’s unique property to their downright fun reception, we’re wishing that we could party every single Monday with these two. Congrats Geoff and Jocelyn, let’s do it all over again!

Wedding Inspo - Desert Florals

For our little team, being located in the gorgeous state of New Mexico means that we get to experience all of the amazing traditions, tastes, and beauty of the Southwest. One of our all time favorite details we get to see in both everyday life and on wedding days are desert florals. Our hearts are so happy that more and more of our brides and grooms are embracing some of our most beloved desert plants and flowers in both live florals and desert inspired details. From cacti to succulents to pampas grass to protea flowers, all of these hot climate beauties are something to behold. Check out some of our favorite desert florals for lots of Southwestern inspo!

Matt + Allie, a Cozy Home Engagement

We kicked off our summer engagements in the best way, with a super fun in-home session with Matt and Allie. These two know how to go from crazy in love to super silly in just a matter of moments! Our girl Bre had the best time capturing these two Santa Fe babes in their family home high in the mountains.

These two have been together for 5 years and are making it last name official next May at La Fonda on the Plaza with a sweet, intimate wedding.

Vendor Feature - Genica Lee Hair and MUA

It’s about dang time we feature one of the baddest in the game: the one and only Genica Lee! There is just so much to say about this precious little love and not enough time or space on our little corner of the internet. Beyond Genica’s IMMENSE talent for hair AND makeup, and her timeliness, and professionalism she brings on a bride’s wedding day, there lies one of the kindest, most radiant, supportive, and simply wonderful humans we’ve ever met.

Alicia and Genica go way back when to the very first time Alicia first dipped her toes into the editorial side of the wedding world. She was one of the few wedding vendors who actually gave us a shot and not only shared her talents, but poured her heart out by styling hair for our first ever editorial wedding shoot.

Genica not only provides our brides with a 5 star service serving the most gorgeous, glam wedding looks we’ve ever seen but she also does it with the sweetest, brightest, and most joyful disposition. She is a light that shines oh so bright and here at Alicia Lucia Photography we are so grateful to work alongside someone like G who gives her all to our brides and does it always with the biggest, sweetest smile! Who wouldn’t want someone like that on their wedding day? Check out more of her gorgeous work below and be sure to give her a follow: @genicalee_hmua on Instagram
