The past couple of weeks – I have been returning from maternity leave FULL swing! New content, sessions, and even working on creative resources for photographers and entrepreneurs like myself. Kicking off  August with my first session since having Em – and not to mention my FIRST family session! This awesome family gave me such a great time photographing – their two month old was just absolutely adorable! I could have photographed more of a precious family than they were!

Yesterday in light of Spring approaching, I was decluttering my computer, organizing, and going through images from the past. Upon doing so, I decided to celebrate the first day of Spring by sharing with you all my absolute FAVORITE images from my 2018 brides & their beautiful weddings! 2018 was off to a great start for me! Even though I moved to a completely new state & timezone, my 2018 brides made the wedding season so fun and exciting!

I couldn’t think of a better way to bring 2018 to a close other than photographing Nathan & Jazmin’s special day! 2019 has surely come in fast! I can’t believe that January is over halfway done with! 

When I first met Nathan & Jazmin, they were actually one of the first couples that I chatted with about their wedding! They were so awesome and I knew after our consultation that their wedding was going to be worth the wait! Their wedding definitely was!

For their wedding, I traveled to Las Cruces, New Mexico (one of my favorites) to photograph! And, well I must say, Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces where the entire day was celebrated – the word beautiful does not do it justice! From the deep rich colors that represent New Mexico, to the exquisite fountains inside & out, the magnificent detail of this location was to die for! Hotel Encanto is for sure one of my favorite official venues!

The area was very gorgeous yet simple – with hints of grey & luscious greens floated throughout. As guests arrived, a string quartet played beautifully as they performed music chosen by the bride herself!

We’re so into the moment these days – that we can’t enjoy any moment without pulling out our phone to capture a photo, a video, a boomerang to post on Instagram. The fact that technology is so involved in everything we do, makes it difficult to not pull out our smartphone in order for us to relive a moment for our benefit. But have you ever thought that by doing so, you’re possibly taking the moment from someone else? I’m talking about staying “unplugged” during a wedding.
