Marble Dreams - a Styled Winter Shoot

On an overcast January day, a grey toned marble dream comes to life. Proving that the usually gloomy color grey can take center stage, this shoot showcases how to tie in an usually overlooked color with muted tones of pinks and teals alongside shimmery gold and black to make a truly unique look. Inspired by the multifaceted nature of gemstones and marble, this daydream will make you wonder if grey truly is the new black.

Martina + Nick, a handmade Los Lunas ranch wedding

So happy to finally share this lovely DIY wedding. Martina and Nick, who met over a decade ago in high school, put so much thought and effort into the gorgeous details of their day. all the design elements were handmade, like the lawn games, wood rounds, and bar/keg the groom constructed. They wanted their wedding to have a very distinct character, and incorporating their personal style and aesthetic as a couple was a must! 

"We love being outdoors and wanted all of our guests to feel laid back and enjoy what the day was truly about, joy and love in the presence of each other’s company."

The ceremony was held at the historic immaculate conception church of tome, where martina's parents, as well as both sets of her grandparents, were married! following the ceremony, we photographed martina and nick on the family farm and fields in which Nick grew up working on.

When I asked Martina what her favorite wedding memory was, she shared:

"One of my absolute favorite memories from our wedding was our impromptu stop at our local burger joint, Circle T. It was completely random and so much fun to just sit with our wedding party and enjoy the comforts of a chocolate shake, fries and a burger! I will definitely be thanking Katrina (my bridesmaid), for a very long time for calling in that order!"

Congrats to the happy couple! we were honored to be a part of your beautiful day.

Aaron + Rosalyn, a La Mesita Ranch Wedding // Santa Fe, New Mexico

Oh the Moorehead wedding...where to begin! The beauty.. The smiles.. The details.. The Fun.. The love.. It was all undeniably present. Every single aspect of Rosalyn and Aaron's wedding was pure perfection.

When Rosalyn chose us to be her wedding photographers we were incredibly humbled, super pumped and just a bit more nervous then normal. She is a photographer herself, so naturally, everything HAD to be just perfect! And that it was. Rosalyn incorporated her grandmothers vintage clutch, muted tones of Jade bridesmaids dresses, custom cut wood grain signage and chose soft tones for floral pieces, which all complimented the whimsical and timeless feel of their equestrian venue, La Mesita Ranch

Aaron and Rosalyn, you two have turned from clients, to friends to now more like family to us, we adore you both, love love love your kiddos and absolutely LOVE your family! The venue was amazing, the wedding was out of this world breathtaking and the photos-lets just say I sobbed like a baby while prepping this post!
