Family photos at The Rio Grande. The Rio Grande bosque spanish for “forest” offers a unique environment in arid Albuquerque. Large cottonwood trees, coyote willow, and New Mexico olive create a cool, shady forest and provide habitat for beaver, numerous bird species, turtles, and snakes.
I can tell by the look on Jen’s face, she will not be having me back for family photos. Don’t get me wrong, we took some traditional everyone’s hair brushed, clean clothes photos, but I wasn’t winning over the boys, and since I know very little about Mindcraft, I needed to connect with them somehow- so warpaint by the river it was. Full disclosure- the parent’s were on board for this shoot- well, that was until I told the boys to hug mom and Dad, after they were muddy. I have known this couple for 12 years now after photographing their wedding, and I just adore them.

Peter and Patil were married in Pasadena, with reception to follow in Glendale. To transport them to the reception- they hired a classic car- my favorite part of the day. Just me, the chauffeur and the couple, documenting that magical moment of just being married.
