Ashwin + Lauren, a Snowy New Mexico Engagement

Earlier this year, we took full advantage of the wild snow storms New Mexico threw at us to capture the ever so sweet and serene Ashwin and Lauren. In something straight out of a movie, these lovebirds, who are also both physicians, met while working night shifts at a hospital in Boston. They slowly fell in love over late night snacks and even did a long distance relationship when Ashwin moved to Philadelphia for a cardiology residency. Lauren mentioned that her and Ashwin not only love laughing and bringing out the best in each other, but they’re also best friends. And after three years of loving each other, they’re soooo ready to make this a forever thing.

These babes will also be setting the bar for Santa Fe weddings sky high this Labor Day weekend with a two day celebration! They’ll kick of their forever with a New Mexico inspired, classic, elegant wedding at the iconic Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi off of the Santa Fe Plaza followed by a vibrant, colorful Hindu celebration (including a groom entrance on a white horse…real life fairytale much?!) in honor of Ashwin’s culture. We can’t even begin to describe just how excited we are for this giant, beautiful weekend!!

Ryan + Jennifer, a Winter Engagement

If there’s one kind of love story we adore, its when couples get set up by friends and instantly hit it off! A co-worker of Ryan and Jennifer played cupid and had these babes accidentally run into each other at a work meeting. Jennifer couldn’t believe how amazing Ryan’s style was (and that someone could love clothes as much as her) and the rest is history!

These lovers braved some pretty chilly weather with us (in the most stylish outfits by the way) and we captured their fun loving spirits in New Mexico’s wintery outdoors. We can’t wait for their laid back, intimate Sarabande Bed and Breakfast wedding later on this year!!

Colton + Lindsey, a Snowy New Mexico Engagement

If there’s anything we love more than a fairytale proposal its when it takes place at Disneyworld! Colton and Lindsey met when they were only 12 years old, but flash forward to October 2018 when Colton popped the question at the Happiest Place on Earth in front of Lindsey’s family. We can’t wait for their dream day this fall at Hyatt Regency Tamaya!
