Sandia Mountains Wedding

I haven’t blogged a wedding in a little while. Let’s be honest. It’s been over a year! I’ve been so busy! I haven’t looked at these images since I edited them and I can’t stop smiling. The Sandia Mountains are an amazing backdrop for a wedding and Elena Gallegos picnic area is perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony! This Sandia Mountains wedding was beautiful and I don’t mean my photography or the mountains. I mean the love between Mikalah and Seth is evident, undeniable, and beautiful! I see a love that will weather eternal.

Every wedding that I photograph echoes and reflects the love that I have for my own love, Mandie. She’s sitting next to me at Starbucks. We’re both working on internet stuff. She probably doesn’t know it but I keep peeking over at her. I’m so grateful for her. She’s been the love and grace in my life. She’s given me two beautiful girls and I wish I could put into words how I feel. Mikalah and Seth, I wish you all the best in your journey together. May your years be many and may your love only multiply. This is Mikalah and Seth’s wedding at the base of the Sandia Mountains.

If you want me to photograph your own Sandia Mountains wedding or even if you have your eye on another wedding venue, you can reach me by clicking here. Also, stick around until the end. We stuck around for sunset. The light was amazing! Every bride and groom should get to do a sunset session. I’m telling you, if you haven’t considered it, you should. You’re only going to wear that wedding dress once and how often do you have a professional photographer following you around?
