Katie and Alex’s Santa Ana Resort Wedding

Katie and Alex had a gorgeous wedding at Santa Ana Star Casino and Hotel located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The wedding party used the hotel rooms to get dolled up for their beautiful day. Then they headed to a lovely Catholic church for the ceremony and back to the resort to capture these wedding photos outside against the stunning desert landscape and majestic mountains.

Santa Ana Resort is a wonderful place for wedding photography. They have gorgeous landscaping for some breathtaking outdoor photography. Natural lighting, green trees and grass, a pond and those great Sandia mountains in the background create the perfect atmosphere for wedding photography.

Katie and Alex’s special day started in their great hotel rooms. Even these rooms inside Santa Ana Resort were picture perfect as you just saw in the wedding photos above. I captured candid photos of the bride and groom getting ready to profess their love to one another.

Details are so important in wedding photography. I know how much work goes into each and every detail on this special day so we make sure to capture them in the photo session. A close up of the wedding rings, the accessories that adorn the bride’s bouquet, her shoes and veil and all of the dresses before they’re put on by the bride and her bridesmaids. Each of these items are carefully arranged for photos that will bring back memories of each detail on their big day.

Inside of the wedding chapel, we stay prepared to capture that very first kiss as husband and wife and the happiness on the couple’s faces afterward. There is only one chance to capture each and every one of these magical moments, this is why it’s so important to have an experienced wedding photographer.

Experienced photographers already know what to expect at a wedding and through their experience, know how to avoid any mishaps. We don’t miss out on any opportunities for great wedding photography. This is a huge deal and we treat it as such.

We stay with our wedding couples from the early hours getting ready all the way to the reception afterwards. Not one moment will go by without being captured and documented through gorgeous wedding photography. After countless days and hours of planning and prepping your big day will go by in a flash. So we make it a priority to capture every special moment for you to look back on in remembrance of all the hard work and love that went into this once in a lifetime event.

What an exciting day it was for Katie and Alex. It was a pleasure to join these two on their special day as it is with all of our couples. It’s a privilege to be able to experience these special occasions with all of our clients. Some clients become like family to us. We get to walk with them from engagement photo shoots to their wedding all the way through maternity photo sessions, newborn and every milestone after.

Albuquerque, New Mexico Wedding at The Hyatt Regency Tamaya

Stephanie and Matt had a simply stunning wedding ceremony underneath the gazebo at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The breathtaking trees that were just beginning to turn yellow and orange for fall made a great backdrop. I loved their beautiful tribute to the presence of God in their relationship with the three strands on the cross that represent Ecclesiastes 4:12.
