Jaycie and Adam were supposed have their wedding on the day we ventured out to the Sandia Crest in Albuquerque. But of course, Covid did what it does best and threw them for a loop. They decided to postpone and runaway together to Albuquerque for a weekend getaway. I’m so honored they booked another session […]

Jory and Trevor chose one of their favorite hikes in the Sandia Mountains of New Mexico for their engagement session and I COULD NOT be more in awe. These mountains bring it every single time. I’m so inspired by them to be who I want. Meaning? I honestly, really, truly believed I was adventurous, badass, […]

Love wins. That’s really all there is to say. But, to explain: Andrea and Susan got married in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic and had to jump through and unreal amount of hurdles to do it. These two went through so many different options. Their big wedding had to be called off. Their plans to elope in a national park got thwarted by travel restrictions. Time and time again their plans had to be changed to fit the unpredictable roller coaster that is 2020. Finally, this plan worked. And it unfolded beautifully.

OOOOOKAY WELL THIS WAS THE MATERNITY SESSION OF DREAMS. Preslie made this night an absolute show-stopper. Those dresses, her makeup, that hat as a versatile accessory, and of course, that cute baby bump.

Here it is!! The first wedding after being terrified to leave my house for months, and it was just down the street from my house in Carlsbad, New Mexico. All about the baby steps, right?

Adelaide and Ramon are the example of perseverance. The amount of times they had to change their plans was unbelievable, and when they could still have a wedding, they worked around every restriction and found ways to go about it safely. Though looking out over a ceremony of people wearing masks is a little sobering, it’s so much better than nothing. It was so amazing to see even a smaller group of people come together in a pandemic to celebrate Addy and Ramon’s love. It truly is unstoppable.

This session was such a long time coming! At some points it seemed like the universe was telling us “absolutely not, this session must not exist”. The weather was never on our side, cars kept running into problems, a whole PANDEMIC. Four hours into driving to one of the last attempts, the skies turned almost […]

So I made a little elopement happen. It’s no big wedding. But it is exactly the kind of thing I’ve been wanting to document more of. Due to the pandemic, people have been looking into eloping more than ever before, often making it their plan B. I want to let couples know they can feel comfortable with eloping and that so many of the myths about them are just that: myths! Families won’t be upset. It won’t feel any less special than a big wedding does. It doesn’t even have to be just the two of you! Eloping is the freedom of doing absolutely anything you want and to adopt possibilities that would not have been feasible with a big wedding. Elopements are liberating. And badass.
