Katrina + Husayn, a Monte Sagrado Wedding

Katrina and Husayn, two of the kindest people I know! They got married on a beautiful overcast day at the stunning Monte Sagrado Resort in Taos, NM -- Husayn's home town! They met in college, officially at a UNM v. NMSU game in 2008 in Las Cruces, NM. However, they didn't begin dating until 2010.  Katrina, on a first date at Kelly's & Husayn working there at the bar and grill! Husayn decided to chat up Katrina, but no numbers were not exchanged till a few weeks later when she was back celebrating graduation with friends! This time, Husayn and Katrina exchanged numbers and the rest is history! 

Their day was lovely in every way, from Katrina's first look with her parents, to their intimate ceremony with the Taos mountains as their backdrop, to dancing the night away with the raddest music from their live band, Le Chat Lunatique --  it was the perfect day! 

Katrina and Husayn, I was incredibly honored to be your wedding photographer! Cheers to your forever kind of love!

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!
