Carlsbad, New Mexico Engagement Session // Ida + Gabe

I am so lucky to have met and worked with so many amazing couples in Carlsbad, New Mexico! These couples have been so incredibly invaluable as I build up business in the southwest. Every one of them has promoted me in different ways, given me guidance in terms of locations and marketing techniques, and raved about me to family and friends. They have even have plans to come back for more and I cannot wait to see them again!

Ida and Gabe were my the last Carlsbad couples I photographed during my last visit in May and I swear they have been in front of the camera DOZENS of times before this day. They seemed to just naturally fall into poses together in front of the camera and made my job so easy, I barely had to say anything! They are just so in love with eachother and so beyond comfortable just holding eachother that it took zero prompts for them to have natural chemistry.

Also can we talk about that New Mexico landscape?! I’ll never get over it. It’s a little hilarious to me planning out sessions here in the Southwest. The people who live here are all about finding places with lots of greenery and water. And then there’s me, tired of the mass amounts of green of New England, who wants to just lay out in the sun and stare up at the endless sky and take photos of all the cactus in the world. One day I’ll reach a good compromise in New Mexico hahah!

Thank you times a million to the amazing Ida and Gabe!
