Echo Canyon



 
Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting Ariane and Carlos for the first time, for their engagement session. They took me to the place where Carlos proposed, Echo Canyon, New Mexico. It was an amazing afternoon because in a sense, we re-enacted the day of the proposal. We took a scenic drive near El Rito, stopping along the way to marvel at the incredible views. It was raining and by the time we arrived at Echo Canyon, the clouds looked like this and the lighting was perfect. This is where he proposed over a year ago. They look so natural together, like a perfect fit.

Protective

I am fiercely protective of my brides. I want them to relax and enjoy the day. For instance, when I was with my last bride, at the salon, I noticed her toenails, they looked well.... a tad bit shabby (no offense Ranier). I asked if she was going to be getting a pedicure. She said that she didn't have time, instead she was going to run to the grocery store, after getting her hair done, to buy some last minute refreshments. What?!? No. No. No. I took some quick shots and ran to the grocery store for her. I got back just in time to shoot the final stages of her hair getting styled.



Then we arrived at the location where her family and bridesmaids were getting ready. Everyone was so busy, no one had time to help. I literally put my camera down and painted her toes as her make-up artist was working on her face.



Awwww, much better.

Apples, apples, apples!

 I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of two friends, Will and Ranier. They got married at this lovely apple orchard at Dixon's Apples, south of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Here are some of my favorite images.

Shiny red guitar


These are images from my bridal session with Jessica. I was so lucky to see her in her beautiful wedding dress before the wedding. Everyone else will have to wait, sorry folks. Her daughter was there with us and enjoyed being in the middle of the activities. She is going to be a delightful flower girl. I can't wait to photograph the wedding in Reno, it is going to be a blast.
Did I mention that Jessica was the lead singer in a metal band?
