Mack + Shelby, a Dreamy New Mexico Engagement

Mack and Shelby’s journey is the ultimate love story!! Even though they went to the same high school, they crossed paths by total chance while both attending Texas A&M in College Station, Texas. After dating for a bit, they parted ways, only to realize how special they were to each other. Once again fate brought them together and this time, for good! Through thick and thin, this sweet couple continuously loved and supported each other and to Mack, not only is Shelby beautiful and caring, she is truly the light of his life. We cannot wait capture more of this darling love story in December when Mack and Shelby tie the knot at Four Seasons Santa Fe.

Styled Sunday - A Springtime Pantone Inspired Shoot

Back at the end of 2015, we put together a shoot showcasing the 2016 Pantone Color of The Year. We were so excited when Pantone, for the first time ever, announced not one, but two colors for 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. When it comes to the more feminine tones, we're big lovers of the more muted and matte variations so I knew INSTANTLY that highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity in a styled wedding shoot had to happen. This spring, we hope you fall in love with this dazzling display of styled simplicity.

Dustin + Ashley, a Los Poblanos Engagement

We adored spending a cool summer evening at Los Poblanos  with this absolutely glowing couple! Dustin and Ashley have been together for almost 9 years and have been engaged for 7 of those years! These high school sweethearts met in 2007 while both attending Manzano High School and started dating in 2009 after Dustin sweetly asked Ashley to be his girlfriend at the top of the Sandia Peak. Flash forward two years to 2011 when Dustin proposed in the exact same spot! We can't wait to photograph their gorgeous Los Poblanos wedding later this year!

Matthew + Laura, a Casas de Sueños Summer Wedding

On a hazy, rainy summer day, Matthew and Laura tied the knot at the ever enchanting Casa de Sueños near Old Town in Albuquerque, NM.  This sweet couple exchanged their vows in the closest place to a fairytale garden you'll find in the southwest, surrounded by close friends, family, and even the bride's 95 year old grandmother. Matthew and Laura paired gorgeous, simple details with bright pops of colorful florals (designed by the groom's mom!), a to die for peony adorned cake,  and a breathtaking sparkler exit! We loved being part of the Herman's dream of a day!

Shane + Megan, a Dreamy New Mexico Wedding

In one of our dreamiest weddings to date, Shane and Megan vowed to love and cherish one another for the rest of their lives surrounded by family and friends at the breathtakingly beautiful Tinnin residence in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The couple met six and a half years ago, but Shane knew instantly that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Megan. Their vows pulled on our heartstrings during an incredibly emotional ceremony and both Megan's father and sister gave toasts that brought the entire room to tears.  In honor of her late mother, Megan's father gifted her one of her mother's gorgeous diamond rings to wear as her 'something old' and 'something blue'.  In addition to all of their heartfelt, deeply moving moments, Shane and Megan also incorporated some stunning details into their larger-than -life, truly incredible wedding. From florals with a hint of a tropical edge to an amazing dessert bar to a garter toss complete with a football (as a nod to Shane's life as a quarterback), this couple pulled out all of the stops to celebrate the next chapter of their lives! We were so honored to capture all of the laughs, tears, and love from this unforgettable day.
