Rigo + Maria, a Southwest Engagement

Rigo and Maria tied the knot in March, but we couldn't help posting their sweet engagement from late 2017! Being huge fans of Pixar's film Up, they incorporated a ton of amazing little details into their wedding day. We can't wait to share their soft, elegant wedding soon!

Alex + Marcela, a Boho Winter Wedding at Four Seasons Santa Fe

On a chilly December weekend in Santa Fe, we were beyond honored to be a part of Alex and Marcela's three day wedding soirée. With a ton of magic from the ever talented Jessie Baca, this couple hosted not only an incredibly boho chic wedding at Four Seasons Santa Fe, but they also had an intimate bridal dinner adorned with watercolor signage and delicate butterfly details at El Nido and a fun rehearsal dinner at The Cowgirlmaking their wedding the ultimate celebration of Santa Fe Culture and cuisine!

On her wedding day, Marcela took her love for the Southwest even further by donning a pair of rustic cowboy boots under her exquisite Claire Pettibone wedding gown.  There wasn't a dry eye during this couple's  incredibly moving vows and Alex even made vows to Marcela's beyond adorable daughter Izzy (who was so excited that she rushed up to the alter once the couple was pronounced husband and wife). After a round of stunning golden hour photos with the newlyweds and Izzy (and their pup, Cinderella Rainbow— sweetly named by Izzy), these lovers celebrated in style, with everything from cactus cupcakes to New Mexican inspired table settings to an amazing sparkler exit. This wedding was also featured on Carats and Cakes! A huge congrats to these lovers on an incredible wedding weekend and on recently welcoming a new baby into their family, we are beyond thrilled for you two!

Sam + Brittany, a Winter Couples Session

Last December we trekked up to the mountains for a magical winter session with Sam and Brittany. Besides having the most beautiful bling and incredible cold weather style, these two were the sweetest to capture! Golden hour light literally makes snow glisten and we were so thankful to get to know this adorable pair.
