Romance in the Hoodoos | New Mexico



There's times when your wedding day is just so full that the idea of heading out for golden hour romantic pictures. If you are feeling like you want tips of my ultimate timeline from a photographers perspective, you can find my free downloadable timeline here.


One of the most helpful recommendations I like to make for my brides is to do a romantic session, in all your wedding finery, on a different day at an epic location. Consider it a souped up first look. You get to see each other in a private, intimate location without everyone watching. You get to open up your timeline and spend more time with your friends and family. You get to also add some variety to your wedding gallery.


New Mexico is filled with gorgeous rock formations and scenic views. I have fully decided that it is one of the most underrated states in the United States and is such an incredible place to have a destination wedding. Not only are most venues less expensive than other locations, but there are also 310 days of sunshine every year so you're a lot less likely to get rain on your wedding day. I know they say that is lucky but it doesn't feel lucky when you're having to move your planned outside ceremony indoors.
