Engagement Inspo - New Mexico Desert Engagements

If there is one thing that is both unique and extremely versatile about engagements in the Southwest, it’s being able to have them in the middle of the desert, at any time of the year. From rich orange and yellow hues, to bright green fields of grass, to neutral toned sandy spots, to gorgeous white hills and mountains, there’s a plethora of reasons we adore living in New Mexico and capturing engagements so close to home. Check out all the beauty below!

Vendor Feature - Betty Rose by Alanna

We couldn’t pass up an opportunity to shout out one of our wedding day makeup mavens, Alanna Garcia! Over the past few years, so many of our brides have trusted Alanna with all of their glam needs and this MUA queen ALWAYS delivers. Her soft and natural, yet absolutely stunning looks continually make our brides look like absolute dreams. We trust and love this babe indefinitely, she even did bridal makeup on Alicia’s mom for her special day! All the love in the world in Alanna and her team of Betties as they continue to make weddings and engagements even more beautiful, can’t wait to capture even more of the prettiness they whip up this season!

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.
