A Four Seasons Santa Fe Surprise Proposal

Phil first reached out to us earlier in the year and shared with us his exciting plans of proposing to his life long sweetheart, Kayla. Now planning a surprise proposal, let alone planning one from out of the state was not an easy feat but he knew that Santa Fe had a special place in Kayla's heart and he was determined to make it happen! With the help of the great team at The Four Seasons - Rancho Encantado, Phil got down on one knee and Kayla said YES to the man of her dreams. 

Thank you Phil (& sweet Kayla) for trusting me with your momentous day! Cheers to you both and HAPPY wedding planning! 

A Four Seasons Santa Fe Wedding \\ Mr. & Mrs. Fuller Alicia Lucia Photography \\ New Mexico Wedding Photographer \\ Santa Fe, NM

It was a beautiful Saturday in Santa Fe. Ten years in the making, May 9th would be the day that Shane and Elaine would forever commit themselves to each other. The weather, in typical New Mexico fashion, was a concern (it literally snowed, yes it snows in May here). The wind subsided and the blue skies came out just in time for their portraits.

Without further adieu, I present to you Mr. & Mrs. Fuller!

Miguel & Laurene | an Old Pecos Trail wedding | Santa Fe Wedding Photography | Santa Fe, New Mexico

I'm beaming with excitement and so happy to share with you all Miguel & Laurene's beautiful day! It was my last wedding of 2014 and the absolute loveliest DIY, New Mexican, fairytale themed wedding! 

From the spanish decor incorporating bean filled centerpieces (so darling), papel picado banderitas (mexican cut-out flags) to Laurene's succulent infused bouquet (100% made by the bride & her maids), yet all these sweet touches were COMPLETLY out shined by Laurene's radiant smile every time her handsome groom would look over at her.... It was truly the most perfect blend of celebrating their love and honoring their culture & roots. 

They exchanged the most deepest, sweetest vows and danced the night away with their closest friends and family. It was the greatest privilege to document their love story -- cheers to you Miguel & Laurene, I wish you many, many years of continued love & bliss!! <3

And a big thanks to my wonderful second shooter: Caitlin of Caitlin Elizabeth Photography 

I vow to see you in the light and likeness of God. To honor, support, and respect you each and every day. To trust and confide in you, unafraid to be my most vulnerable self in your presence. To accept you just as the Lord made you, the beautiful wonderful man that you are. To stand by you on the brightest of days and the darkest of nights. No matter what life brings, we will see it through. I promise to celebrate us each and every day. We made it.

Steve & Charlene | Buffalo Thunder Wedding | Santa Fe, NM

I was so excited when I first met with Charlene and heard about her plans for a smaller, more intimate wedding. 20 of Steve & Char's family & closest friends came together to watch them say their heart warming wedding vows to each other. The whole day was absolutely perfect.

Whitfield Family | Taos, NM | Alicia Lucia Photography - Family Photographer in Albuquerque, NM

A couple months ago I got the sweetest inquiry from a fellow photographer out in Texas. Stephania and her precious family had secured the most perfect vacation rental home for their stay in Taos, NM and they hired me me to go up there to photograph them and their extended family! As the day approached, the weather got more and more questionable (this monsoon season has been throwing me some curve balls), but rain or shine I was headed to Taos to capture these precious memories of them in the beautiful Land Of Enchantment! I'm so grateful the weather held out for us and so happy to have met such a lovely family!
