National Hispanic Cultural Center Wedding in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Congratulations Shaina and Hector! We wish you many, many years of happiness! These two were married at a little hidden gem; The National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. One wouldn’t expect the beauty that was found here, we had great opportunities for some beautiful pictures!

The wide grey stone stairway was my favorite spot for wedding photographs. The stairs swept upward in a seemingly endless fashion behind the wedding party for a unique backdrop that captures the eye.

The bright grey stone went flawlessly with the steel-colored suits the groomsmen wore and the maroon bridesmaid’s dresses. '

The brick pathways and wooden beams were other pleasant surprises for a wedding photographer. The architecture left us with modern accents throughout Shaina and Hector’s wedding photos. The National Hispanic Cultural Center has definitely made its way onto my list of exceptional wedding venues.

The bride and groom had an outdoor wedding surrounded by friends and family. Shaina carried a beautiful flower bouquet that featured bright yellow sunflowers. Later in the night, they moved inside for their reception and a little surprise… They’re expecting! Instead of the traditional cake cutting ceremony, they threw in a little twist and had a gender reveal right there!

They cut into the cake that was filled with colored icing that would reveal the gender of their new baby, and we made sure to capture the excitement on their faces as they found out, in front of their loved ones, that they’re having a…

Well, I don’t want to spoil the surprise, keep scrolling to see!

I think another congratulations is in store, don’t you? Congratulations on the baby BOY!! What an exciting day! First, they profess their love to each other in front of their family and friends, then they get the best surprise in their wedding cake… They’re having a baby boy!

All of this in the company of family and friends. These two have a lot to celebrate, and celebrate they did!

I was just as pleasantly surprised with the reception area at the National Hispanic Cultural Center as I was with the outside area! You can see that a lot of thought and detail went into these buildings. Large wooden beams and elegant light fixtures accented the space making for more beautiful wedding photography.

“After Every Storm There is a Rainbow” Baby Photo Session

The splendor of a rainbow does not invalidate the devastation of the storm that came before it. The painful memories and clouds may still hover, but now there is a beautiful light that emerged from the darkness.

A rainbow baby is a baby that is born after a miscarriage, still birth, or any other type of neonatal loss. This princess below is the rainbow and light of her family. Enjoy the beautiful images we were able to capture during this newborn photo session below.

A rainbow is a great sign that things are going to get better. When the rain dispurses and the clouds begin to calm, this colorful light brings hope. This baby brings hope.

She was such a doll through the entire Newborn photography process. As you can see below, her family just adores her!
