Owen + Amelia, a New Mexico Engagement

Owen and Amelia’s beautiful spring wedding at Hotel Albuquerque might be a year away, but we explored some of the beautiful mountains and deserts with them last month! Their sweet, intimate, garden centered day is bound to be lush and gorgeous!

These sweethearts originally met while in grad school in Boston, but made a new home in Albuquerque when Owen landed a job at a law firm in town. Owen and Amelia have been going strong for 7 whole years and even have a fur baby, Penelope (a sweet little golden doodle pup) of their own! We can’t wait to capture these sweeties in the heart of Old Town.

Trey + Clara, a Southern New Mexico Wedding

This year our team was lucky enough to kick off wedding season with Trey + Clara, two of the kindest, most genuine, downright in love babes around. From their sweet little love story to their glorious spring wedding in Southern New Mexico, everything about these two is absolute perfection.

Even though they initially met in high school in their hometown of Las Cruces, NM, Trey and Clara didn’t hit it off until years later during college. Clara was at home visiting from college in Colorado when she ran into Trey at a local bar and (in true millennial fashion) the next day Trey slid into her DMs to ask Clara out on an official date. After two hour coffee date, these two were smitten with each other. Trey surprised Clara by visiting her in Colorado just three days after she went back (#boyfriendgoals). These two have been together ever since and made it last name official this spring!

Trey and Clara got married on a gorgeous family property in San Patricio, NM surrounded by about 300 of their favorite family members and friends. We adored the down to earth, yet amazingly classic style of this wedding. From the pretty mix-and-match periwinkle blue bridesmaid dresses to Clara’s stunning bridal hair and makeup (major model glam), to the dreamiest Justin Alexander wedding gown, all of the bridal details from this day had us head over heels. Not to mention, Trey and Clara found the perfect place to take their romantics (the Peter Hurd Guesthouse). This crazy little property was a wedding photogs dream, with everything from a tiny greenhouse to a lovely white gazebo to the most perfect pink adobe walls. We’re not sure that we’ve completely recovered from being absolutely smitten with this day and these lovers!

TBH we’ll probably never stop daydreaming about Trey + Clara’s wedding, so cheers to the best day to start off the 2019 wedding season!

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!!!

Rigo + Maria, a New Mexico Wedding

This March we finished off our winter wedding season with Rigo and Maria’s sweet, simple wedding at St. Jude Catholic Church and Marriott Pyramid in Albuquerque, NM. This couple kept their day classic yet unique with lush crimson details, traditional rose accents, and details from their favorite movie, Disney Pixar’s Up! Rigo even surprised his new bride by wearing a grape soda pin inspired by the film. After their ceremony, these lovers let us shoot their romantics among whimsical, newly bloomed trees that we’re still daydreaming about! Congrats to these lovers, cheers to a beautiful new beginning together!!
