Alex & Vanessa Glass Wedding

Congratulations guys!!!! I have to say… Your wedding had to be the most exhausting wedding I have ever been apart of. Not so much the photographing of the wedding, but the 5 months of landscaping that we undertook before the actual day. I love you guys, and I am so happy with how everything came out.

Leyba / Burt Wedding – Prairie Star – Santa Ana Pueblo, NM

The Prairie Star was such a beautiful location for a wedding. I had the honor of photographing my sister-in-laws wedding there this past Summer. With the Sandia Mountains as the backdrop, the two were married just before sunset. I was fortunate enough to be able to drag the two of them away from the reception to take a few more shots right at twilight. I absolutely LOVE the way these photos came out.

Filip / Locker Wedding – Air Force Academy Chapel – Colorado Springs, CO

The wedding was the perfect combination of Light, Location, & LOTS of Love! The architecture of the Academy Chapel was breathtaking in itself, but combined with the amount of LOVE flowing between Hope and Steven… It was powerful!

Although the photographer was late by 20 minutes (OPPS!), and the flowers made it to the ceremony only minutes before the wedding party walked down the aisle; all on account of nosey’s slowing traffic to view a deer that had recently been hit on i25… everything went smoothly.

Instead of a typical wedding cake, there were TONS of homemade pies. Blueberry & Apple. THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!! **confession** I had 3 peices!

Enjoy the photos!

We had a good time!

Felicia Bridal Portraits

Just some of the portraits we took before the wedding. Brides never seem to have enough time to relax before the wedding and just let the emotions and feeling set it. It’s always rush rush rush.

With Felicia, fortunatlely she was ready nearly an hour before we had to be anywhere. I was able to take my time and capture some beautiful photos of a beautiful bride.

Roybal / Storie Wedding

It was not only a pleasure to photograph their wedding, it was a lot of fun! The ceremony was held at Santa Maria de la Paz, here in Santa Fe, NM.

This church has to be the best lit church I have EVER photographed in, with light flooding in from every side.

SO 2010 has been a pretty busy year for me as far as portrait sessions go.

Ive had the pleasure of hanging out with some adorable newborns, and some fun and laidback parents and their little jitos/jitas.

ITs been fun! looking forward to quite a few more already scheduled for late May / early June.

SO… When I’m NOT photographing Weddings & Portraits…

…When I’m not hanging out with brides and grooms, and photographing babies and families, I’m doing architectural photography.

I get to see some of the most beautiful homes Santa Fe (and surrounding areas) has to offer. Here is a collection of just a few homes Ive photographed in the past 2 weeks.

Photographing in some COLD weather!

So in the past week I have done 4 outdoor portrait sessions. I am in Santa Fe, NM and each time it was right around 30 degrees with a wind chill factor putting the temperature right around 20 degrees. IT WAS COLD! But after all the complaining and burring, and after seeing the end result in my nice warm office, I was pleased with how the pictures came out.

I could’nt have been more pleased with the end result, and more importantly, my clients felt the same way!

Lesson learned: DONT COMPLAIN!! JUST SHOOT!!!!

Gardens, More Gardens, & Some Amazing Interior Paintings

I photographed a home off Yucca today and I have to say that my first impression was a little bit off. From the road, its an older, simple, well-kept home in a  quite neighborhood. Once you walk through the gate on the meticulously laid brick walkway, and towards the entry, all the while being surrounded by vines, shrubs, trees, and flowers, simple was the last thing on my mind. The gardens on this property are testiment to the years of care and planning the previous owner put into it. The home has been updated with the amenities one would expect in a higher-end home. There was one special feature that caught my attention… The detailed painting at the end of the hallway has the feel as though the hallway continues on to another courtyard. The art is said to be painted by the same gentleman that was commissioned to restore the paintings in the St. Francis Cathedral Bascilica.

Hayes / Hayes Wedding… I know what you are thinking…

No, the bride and groom have absolutely no relation to one another. But it is strange that both of their parents have the same first names, as do their grandparents…

This was an absolutely beutiful wedding. Safe to say the best wedding I have photographed yet. I contribute half of that to the amazing wedding coordinator Meagan Hayes of Dallas. She put together an amazing lineup of wedding vendors and paid attention to the smallest details. Definitely a hands on coordinator. I was thoroughly impressed with how well everything ran. First wedding I have ever photographed that started on time. First wedding I have ever attended actually!

The food was amazing, the cake was even better, and the company was like family. The Hayes families made me feel so much at home there. They feed me, boozed me, and made me have a great time! Please enjoy the pictures and video slideshow

Centerpiece in this weeks New Mexico Free Press

Thanks to the Ana June @ the New Mexico Free Press for the very cool centerpiece on my photography. Although my bio makes me sound like an arrogant old man, i love it. Of course I cant blame anyone but myself for the bio because I wrote it. Never been much of a writer.

Lauren Tercero Senior Portraits

So I recently photographed my neice Lauren for her senior portraits. She was insistent that her images not be anything like her friends from Colorado Springs, i.e. Red Rocks, forest pictures, etc… She wanted more of a rustic feel. We decided to take a walk down Canyon Road in Santa Fe. It didnt take long before we found a long driveway with an old coyote fence lined with hollyhocks. It was perfect for what she wanted. The clouds broke just long enough for us to get the shots we needed.

Lush. Peaceful. Luxury.

The first thing that caught my attention in this property was a water feature / river wrapping around the front courtyard, along the exterior walkway, and ending in the large koi pond. The crisp air takes on the smell of a river flowing through the mountains. It was such a calming experience photographing this property.

Joanna & Kenneth Wedding

I photographed this wedding up near Cerrillos, NM.

The weather couldnt have been any better. The oncoming Thunderstorm held off to just after the reception was ending.
