Engagement

welcome to our

We met with Chris and Brooke this past summer for a glass of wine to really get to know the couple for a little bit before we started their session. Talk about a great start! After that, we swept them away to start shooting around the beautiful grounds of Casa Rondena. The grapes were the […]

We met Caitlin and James in downtown Santa Fe’s Gruet tasting room, attached to the Hotel St. Francis. While enjoying a glass of champagne, we got to know this couple’s mischievous and fun-filled personalities! With their favorite hobbies including dining out and wine-tasting, we learned that they had fun while going out by telling the […]

Eric and Cristina are like most modern couples: a dating app success story! They started on “plenty of fish,” but it wasn’t a great time for Cristina to be kindling a new relationship, as she had just moved home (here in NM) from her PA residency in Michigan and was getting into the swing of […]

We met with Kassy and Christian back in September for their engagement session… and these two were the absolute cutest! Once we had the initial awkward jitters— that all couples inevitably experience from being in front of a camera when you aren’t used it— out the way, Kassy and Christian were incredibly giggly and affectionate, […]

Katie, who is originally from here in New Mexico, and Ian, originally from Missouri, met in 2018, a year after he’d moved to Austin, TX and started working for her brother-in-law.

Anahi and Elliott were recommended to us by someone very special… Sara Irene! (Read all about the emerald-loving, pie-baking redhead we miss so dearly having in the office here). In fact, Elliott is actually Sara’s brother! So when these two cuties (finally hehe) got engaged and inquired after our services… we couldn’t have been more […]

We met with Nikki, Shawn, and Peanut (hint: he’s the very good, super handsome chocolate lab) back in November for their engagement session… and we’ve been drooling over these photos ever since!
