WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
To simplify, I'm a cowboy's wife, ranch-kid mama, rural living home-maker (hallelujah Amazon Prime!) and traveling photographer capturing the love & life stories of our western culture.
This is where I share my recent weddings and couples.

His friends gave him heck and said that he wouldn’t be brave enough so say hi, so he hopped up, marched over and interrupted her mid-sentence in a conversation to introduce himself…She thought that was rude.
I’ve looked forward to Bodie & Rachels’s Southwest Style New Mexico Wedding since they booked! Bodie is a blacksmith by trade and so it was no surprise that the bridal party bouquets were custom made by him.

The moment I saw it I fell in love but when Maria shared with me the meaning of the stone I about melted.
I love love love authentic southwestern old towns…the kind built out of adobe walls, luminarias everywhere you look, a live band on the plaza and the smell of Mexican Food wafting from every corner. And I love love love when I get to wander cobblestone streets with my couples, finding random allies and stunning doorways to use as the perfect backdrops.
It wasn’t just the high mountain allergies making the onlookers sniff during this ceremony. Neither was it the sun making their kids and grandkids eyes water. It was the way Chane and Amy looked at each other during their meaning-filled, non-traditional ceremony where they were attended by their children, danced and shared their story (which you can read more of from their engagement)…setting the stage for their vows to each other and their families.
