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.

2018; A Recap of Our Year

Dear 2018 couples and friends,
This year was a breathtaking, wildly amazing year for the Alicia Lucia Photography Team. From spending extra time at some of our favorite venues, to getting the opportunity of exploring new locations with incredible couples. Besides the glorious details of every single wedding we shot, we couldn’t help but reflect on each and every couple we got to spend time with this year. We rounded up a stand-out shot from every last wedding, engagement, and styled shoot we captured this year. We so loved looking back on all of the genuine love and wonderful little love stories we got to be part of this year.

Cheers to all our our couples and vendors, thank you for choosing us to help you begin the next chapter — we love each and every one of you!!

Love,
The ALP Team

Michael + Caitlin, an Old Town Wedding

This May, we were reminded just how lucky we are to capture such downright remarkable couples! Michael and Caitlin’s late spring wedding brought major fairytale vibes and we’re low-key obsessed with them. From an absolute dream of a wedding gown (complete with the most gorgeous, yet simple lace up back) paired with lovely floral accessories to a little troupe of the cutest flower girls to amazing florals, the details on this day had us in absolute awe. This day started with Caitlin and her girls getting ready at Hotel Albuquerque followed by a touching ceremony at the historic San Felipe de Neri Church right in the center of Old Town Albuquerque to the sweetest summertime reception at the ever quaint El Zocalo in Bernallio. These lovers took the prettiest romantics outside the historic adobe church right after saying “I do” and in the golden light at their reception venue. We adored capturing their first dance in natural evening light (something that rarely happens and is such a treat for us!) and the fact that their ring bearer and all of their flower girls rushed up to join them on the dance floor. To top it all off, these babes had pizza AND donuts at their wedding reception. Cheers to the Hawkes, we loved being a part of your new beginning!!!
