2017 annual fall family sessions with desiree and seth

our favorite things...

the smell of roasting chile wafts through the air,  brightly colored balloons dot the sky, yellow leaves are just starting to pop along the river and finally it's just chilly enough in the morning for a second layer which is hastily discarded an hour later.  fall is on it's way and with that comes our annual fallfamily sessions. we can't wait to see you!

caryn & brian; a long awaited los poblanos wedding

sometimes love takes a while. 6,359 days to be exact!  caryn & brian met each other 17 years ago. time has a funny way of working things out and when the time was right these two decided to marry; they chose to no longer look back but to only look forward.

in our initial conversation brian gave me a list of personality traits to describe caryn, he said that 'shes's attractive , smart, reserved, introverted, she' s a planner and comes from a small family'. he also said they are complete opposites of each other 'he's not attractive, dumb, outwardly affectionate, a big extrovert, he prefers to operate on the fly and comes from a large, loud family'.  now i do not agree with all of his characterizations, i agree they are pretty opposite, and it's amazing to see how opposites really do attract. these two complemented each other in every way possible!

their wedding celebration was held at the ever lovely los poblanos in albuquerque, new mexico. friends and family from all over joined in their excitement and brian made a huge totem pole to display on the lawn to acknowledge where all the guests came from. to settle their nerves they opted for a first look prior to the ceremony & allowed us the privilege of capturing that special time between the two of them.  their heartfelt ceremony officiated by caryn's hometown pastor from dallas, was to celebrate the fact that sometimes it's all about time!!  #itsallabouttime  

caryn & brian, thank you for finally saying 'i do' & letting us be there to witness it!

roxann & craig; get connected

monsoon season is often tricky to schedule sessions, we are at the mercy of mother nature with storms that come out of nowhere & bring pouring rain & roads that rush. we were lucky the day we met with roxann & craig, instead of rain & rushing roads, we got breezes that blew thru the hair & the grasses & dark clouds that added dimension & depth.  the sun even broke thru & warmed their faces & lit up the sandias.

after living in a place for most of your life sometimes you forget the majesty that surrounds you, every now & then new mexico really does feel like the land of enchantment!

rebecca & marc, a los poblanos winter wedding reception

hopefully all enjoyed the beauty from rebecca & marc's classically simple winter wedding ceremony. their reception was equally as wonderful & you know when your groomsmen make a special request for the dj to play 'white & nerdy' by weird al you have a pretty exceptional group of people! 

all the bridal bouquets were made at rebecca & marc's couples' shower, the flowers were made from book pages and placed onto of wands from olivander's and light sabers.
