Ronald McDonald House Charities - Girls Night Out 2018

This past weekend we had the great honor of photographing the Annual Girls Night Out Event, benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico. There were plenty of outstanding vendors on hand to make this event memorable. Here are just a few highlights of what you might have missed. If you have't been to a Girls Night Out event yet, you really are missing something special. Get pampered while you shop, eat, drink, and be merry, all while contributing to an amazing charity. Next year when this fantastic event rolls around, make sure you grab yourself a few tickets and come join in on all the fun. Get a massage, your nails done, a new hair style, browse some beautiful jewelry, watch some belly dancing and dancing to your favorite song. It's the perfect night to spend with your girls.

{Sneak Peek} The Canyon Club Wedding | Bryannah + Gabriel

Bryannah and Gabriel had one amazing wedding this past weekend. The sun was shinning, the temperature was perfect, and there was no wind. We couldn't have asked for better weather. We have so much to show you from this wedding but before we show you it all we wanted to do a quick sneak peek while we finish working on all the images. We just can't wait until they are all done! Until then here is the perfect little snap shot of the day.

The Wedding cake was beautiful, with blue and purple orchids cascading down the front. Their 4-tier cake was topped with a custom engraved glass heart. Their names and wedding date inscribed on the front and 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 beautifully etched on the back. This cake topper was really something special and unique.

White chairs flanked the ceremony aisle with little details added by the bride. Small wood plagues greeted you as you took your seat for the ceremony. The ceremony was held on the driving range of the Canyon Club golf course. The views of the mountains were stunning with lush grass, beautiful green trees, and perfectly blue skies.

3 Benefits of a Styled Photography Experience

Putting together a styled wedding shoot with other wedding professionals can be time consuming, but a heck of a lot of fun! Not only do you get to work with the peers you admire and respect in the industry, but you get to create something unique and beautiful together. When putting together this styled shoot we knew exactly which wedding professionals we wanted to work with. 

Let me start by telling you what a styled shoot is first. A styled shoot is a photo shoot organized in a controlled environment in which the creatives involved have full control over how rooms look and feel, how their models are dressed, what their hair and makeup looks like, and what the props are, if any. Basically, you get a group of awesome wedding professionals together and see what we can create for our fans.

There are many reasons to put together styled photo shoots: practice, building a portfolio, networking, and advertising just to name a few. We feel there is a ton of benefit from putting together a styled shoot, and if we had the time we would love to do one once a month if we could. So on to the three benefits we love about styled shoots.

Creativity:

The ability for each wedding professional to get their own creative juices flowing is so important in an industry that is built on that very thing. Creativity to me is something that flows more freely the more you use it. This is a great opportunity to try something completely new in a no pressure scenario where you have control over time. Sometimes you have no idea what you can create, you just need a little push to get you there. You want to try something new and potentially hard, but there is no way you would or should try it on a paying client. During a real wedding you need to be in the moment to make sure you capture every detail for your clients, allowing them to relive their wedding day through their photographs. The time to try something new is during a styled shoot. Having this time to practice new techniques and tricks is something all professionals should do.

Networking:

It’s not every day that you get to pick which wedding professionals you get to work with on a wedding, that is completely out of your hands during a real wedding. By having a styled shoot you get to pull in the wedding professionals that you enjoy working with, or may want to work with. Working with people that you haven’t had the opportunity to work with is tons of fun and extremely helpful in building new relationships. I think this is one of the best reasons to have a styled shoot in the first place. This gives new wedding professionals the opportunity to get to know other vendors and help them try new ideas. The Albuquerque wedding industry is full of extremely helpful creatives just willing to help each other grow. Sharing and growing our businesses together is something that I think is very important, whether starting out or if you are a seasoned wedding professional. Creating a friendly community that helps each other when we need it most just seems like the perfect fit!

Building a Portfolio:

Building a portfolio is something that I found extremely hard when first starting out.  How do you break into the wedding décor scene when you haven’t done a wedding yet? Or how do you start shooting weddings when you haven’t photographed a single one? Working with other wedding professionals during a styled shoot is a great place to start. You have this chance to get images of that perfect bouquet in an actual wedding scene. Every single wedding professional needs to have photographs for their website. If you aren’t a photographer how would you get them unless you did a styled shoot? Helping other wedding professionals to get these very important images is something that I work hard on. During a styled shoot you can now put extra focus on getting the perfect bouquet photograph, or getting that closeup image of the hair and makeup. Making sure you get the photograph of the flatware on the table for the decorator. This is the opportunity to get all the special shots that most vendors hope they get one day.

Isotopes Park Baseball Engagement | Kayla + Colby

'Take me out to the ball game!' We love it when couples pick a location for their engagement photo session that holds a lot of meaning for them. 

When we first met Kalya and Colby at the Wicked Wedding Show they were looking for guidance from any vendor that would help them. They were recently engaged and felt overwhelmed by the huge amount of planning that was ahead of them for their wedding. So many things to decide and take care of they felt they didn’t know where to start. Similar to many newly engaged couples, the task of planning a wedding feels extremely overwhelming at first. They made the right decision to come to the wedding show to seek out information from local wedding vendors. Just chatting with any vendor should help ease you into planning your wedding. After spending some time chatting with them at the show they decided to book their engagement session with us.

The day of their engagement shoot came and it was a beautiful winter’s day. The previous day had seen lots of wind, dust blowing through the air and much colder temperatures. However, once our engagement shoot day rolled around we found ourselves with clear sunny skies, warm temperatures, and there was hardly any wind.

They had their hearts set on a baseball themed engagement shoot, baseball had a lot of meaning for them and they wanted to make sure it was incorporated into their engagement photos. Which is why we found ourselves at Isotopes Baseball Park that day. We couldn’t have imagined any better place to capture their love for each other and the game of baseball. Michelle Montoya, Community Relations Manager, was there to greet us and was absolutely fantastic to work with. She accompanied us around the stadium for the whole photo shoot experience and even threw out some great ideas for specific locations within the park to photograph.

Kayla and Colby were so very excited for the engagement shoot, they brought with them many props; baseball bats, a couple of balls, their favorite MLB teams’ jersey and many other fun items for the shoot. It was indeed a fantastic location to photograph. It was the perfect casual and fun engagement session. Between the chilled hands, clear skies, and excited atmosphere of being alone in the stadium it truly was a memorable experience that none of us will forget.

Do you love baseball as much as Kayla and Colby? Have you ever thought about having your engagement session somewhere like Isotopes Stadium or somewhere else with lots of personal meaning?
