Joe & Beth Engagement {Santa Fe Wedding Photography}

I received an inquiry from Beth in the beginning of August regarding her wedding photography. She found my website on the Internet. When I spoke to her on the phone, she told me that she and her fiance, Joe, were from St. Louis. We had JUST stopped by the arch in St. Louis that same week! You see, my husband Pat, our ten year old twin boys, our two dogs and our cat had all just driven from Wisconsin (after visiting our families in Menomonie) to New Mexico. St. Louis was a stop along the way. What a fun coincidence. I LOVE coincidences.

New Mexico is a magical place for Beth and Joe. They spent time here while they were dating. In fact, Cathedral Park was a place they visited one special weekend. They got engaged in Albuquerque during Balloon Fiesta last year. What is Balloon Fiesta? It is the largest ballooning event on earth, with over 600 hot air balloons. What a spectacular place to get engaged.

I know most men roll their eyes when they hear about engagement sessions. But I have to give Joe credit. He was a trooper. I mean, how often are you asked to touch noses with your partner? It always makes people crack up and it makes for a great shot. I love it!

The wedding and reception will be at La Posada, which is one of Santa Fe's beautiful resorts just blocks from the Historic Plaza. I'm delighted to be working with the wonderful David Stone, who is in charge of weddings there.

  I love this photograph taken at the Plaza. Notice their scarves? Scarves are going to be a theme at the wedding. (shhh......)

It was a great session during their short visit to Santa Fe in December. 
Stay tuned for photographs from their wedding in May 2012.
