Loren + Julia, a Floral Infused Engagement

We absolutely adored our time with Loren + Julia this fall. Not only did they incorporate some gorgeous florals into their engagement session, but we managed to capture some amazing shots of these lovers with the Sandia mountains. We are so excited for their wedding at Four Seasons Rancho Encantado Santa Fe wedding next September!

Kayla + Austin, a woodlands Engagement session

I sincerely love engagement sessions. Especially with couples who are head over heels in love, down for any adventure and not afraid to get a little dirty! Kayla and Austin were no exception and were such a dream to work with. They didn't hesitate when asked to walk through the tall grass, weeds + cactus, they hiked up hills, and braved all the different desert elements. Not only did they travel from out of the state and set aside the time to get their engagement photos done, but they put all their trust in me and gave me the creative freedom to do my thing.

Ask any creative entrepreneur out there, that has got to be the. best. feeling. ever.  

We explored one of my favorite, most coveted trails just outside of Albuquerque and got to know each other better. I love hearing all about my couples love for each other, and their wedding plans so far. I can't wait for their La Fonda/Coyote Cafe wedding in Santa Fe in a couple months.. Until then, here are just a few of the many favorite images from our time together!

Jacquelyn + Peter | An Elena Gallegos Engagement | Albuquerque, NM Wedding Photographer

Meet Jacquelyn & Peter, both New Jersey transplants living in the beautiful Land Of Enchantment. We traveled up to the foothills for their engagement session where I learned more about their love! I'm obsessing over all the fun touches about this session. Firstly, Jacquelyn made, yes handmade her gorgeous tulle skirt while her mother crafted the beautiful oversized red rose! All so fun and complimenting to the different elements of the foot hills. I'm excited to get to know this sweet couple this next year and of course ecstatic to photograph their beautiful 2015 wedding!

Mr. & Mrs. Harvey, a Casas De Suenos Wedding | Albuquerque Wedding Photographer | Alicia Lucia Photography

It was a perfect day with just the right amount of sunlight for the lovely wedding of Charles & Alissa. The beauty and joy poured from every detail of their gorgeous day. From their touching "First Look" reveal, to their amazing vows, the sweet rose ceremony they did to honor both of their mothers, down to the hilarious surprise from the Best Man, during the ring ceremony! It was certainly a joyous day.

Both Alissa & Charles put so much thought and detail to make it absolutely perfect. So enough from me... here I give you Charles & Alissa's perfect day.
