White Sands Baby announcement | Andrea + Chris Hutchinson

I met this lovely couple back in November of last year when they booked fall photos with us! They were sweeter than pie! And now, six months later.... they came to me to help them announce their baby announcement! I am so freaking excited for them! I already told them I think it's a girl, so I guess we will find out in 7 months! Congratulations again, Andrea + Chris! 

White Sands, New Mexico Family | The Webb Family

The light out at White Sands for this gorgeous families session was AMAZING! The sun was slightly diffused by the clouds but just enough that the sun was still peeking through.  It really was incredible.  And to top it off-- I had the most fun family ever in front of my camera.   It was a perfect day. 

New Mexico Wedding | Rebecca + Jack Pearson

So I may be a tiny bit obsessed with the show "This Is Us" but can you really blame me?! So when the time came for fictitious names I just could't help myself... Can you spot it in my detail shots?

This styled shoot wouldn't have been possible without the amazing local vendors who contributed to it, as well as the lovely local photographers who helped me host it - HUGE thanks to Laura, Brittney, and Diana! Together we created a mock wedding from start to finish for them to experience, photograph, and ask questions along the way. We had 6 crazy awesome ladies come out to our introduction to Wedding Photography workshop. Nothing is more rewarding than guiding others to follow their dreams. 

I'm sad I didn't get to shoot as much as I wanted because I was preoccupied showing the girls posing, composition, mood lightening techniques and chatting about the behind the scenes business aspects - but here are a few pics I captured throughout.

Thank you Ashlee, from Flowers by Ashlee for coming all the way out from Alamogordo and staying and setting up.  I seriously fell in love with you and your personality! If you are a client of mine or future client of mine looking for an incredible florist.... she is your gal.  But honestly, all the vendors who worked this are insanely amazing.  I can't recommend them enough.

Important Questions to Ask your Wedding Photographer | by The Knot


new mexico wedding photographer

How would you describe your style?

Our style is non-traditional, candid, and edgy with a vintage twist.  We try to keep things super non-posey because no one likes those!  But don't worry, we will still guide you just a tad.  

How soon should we book you?

As soon as you have your venue booked it's best to get in touch with us to see if we still have your date available.  

Will the photos be retouched and color balanced? Is that done before I see the proofs?

We edit all your photos in Lightroom.  We throw our magical edits on them first then send them your way.  We also will retouch any blemishes.  Don't worry-- we gotchu, girl! 

How many weddings have you shot, and how many do you do in a year? Also, what's your favorite part of a wedding day, and time of year to shoot?

We've been photographing weddings for 4 going on 5 years now! I couldn't even tell you how many weddings we've shot total but what I can tell you is.....it's A LOT.  We love giving our clients the best possible service....so to ensure quality we only accept a limited number of weddings per year.  You know what they say! Quality over quantity.  I know it's going to sound cliche but I love EVERYTHING about weddings from the details, getting ready to the bride and groom romantics all the way to the reception dance party! But if I had to choose-- definitely bride and groom romantics! I don't have a particular favorite time of year to shoot but I think autujm/fall has the best weather.

If you shoot film, do you usually shoot in both color and black and white? If you'll do both, what percentage of each do you recommend?

We love us some black and white images! You can except to see 90% of your images in color and the rest in black & white.  

What exactly is included in your packages?

Collections include a complimentary engagement session, personalized online gallery of both your engagement & wedding high-resoultion images. Photos are hand-edited with unlimited printing and sharing rights.

What is the deposit and total fee?

We require a 50% retainer of your package to get booked into our calendar! Woo-hoo! 

Will you be my actual photographer, or will it be one of your associates?

Your photographer will either be myself (Jazmine) or Tyler my business partner OR BOTH depending on the package you choose.  Get to know a little more about us HERE.

How long after the wedding do we get to see the photos?

We pride ourselves on delivering wedding photos quickly. We do not RUSH our work, ever.  So it does take time but I think you will be pleased with the turnaround time.  Another perk to us accepting a very limited amount of weddings is our work flow FLOWS. 

How many weddings do you do a weekend?

One....maybe two.  Occasionally we shoot Friday or Sunday weddings! 

Do you charge a travel fee?

If you book our 8 or 10 hour package, travel is included.   It varies from city to city and state to state so just get in touch with us and we can give you a better idea on travel costs. 

Will you follow a shot list? Or do you prefer to have free reign to capture the festivities how you see fit? 

While we always welcome requests from clients we ask that if there is any specific shots wanted to keep them to a total of 10.  More than likely, we already have your shot you want already in our work flow; Unless, it's something out of the ordinary. The more time we spend checking a list in our pockets, the less time we spend capturing the real, raw, candid moments. 

What are the restrictions for sharing photos online or for publication? Do you own the copyright to the photo?

Share away! We love when our clients share our photos! Just be sure to tag us! We do own the copyright to your photo for publication. However, you can print them and share them a million times. We copyright our images so other people do not steal them. 

Do you bring your own lighting?

We work 90% with natural light. But once the sun goes down, more than likely at your reception, we will bust out our professional flashes! 

Do you do videography?

We do! Just ask us about our packages! When you book one of our wedding photography collections you automatically receive 50% off our film collections.  It's a steal! 

What will you wear?

We dress to impress but still need to be comfy since we'll be running around, climbing, jumping, etc.  You can usually find me wearing a dress with leggings and Tyler wearing kakis with a nice button up.

Las Cruces Desert Session // Leah Grace

One word:  GORGEOUS.  Leah is a special kind of beauty! Her smile is contagious and her charisma is out of this world.   Our Desert Boho session was so perfect!

She's making the move to Alabama and wanted to freshen up her website and needed updated pictures, I was so honored that she asked little ol' me to be apart of it.  I see big things in your future, girl!! Rock on :) 

New Mexico Engagement | Rebecca + Tate

Rebecca and Tate's engagement session was amazing! It was a windy day but they absolutely rocked it.  Their chemistry was out of this world and I could just feel the love! I'm so excited for their wedding in Arizona this year! 

Hotel Encanto de las Cruces | Wedding

This Magical Hotel Encanto de Las Cruces wedding was a dream! The simple yet elegant details made Danielle and Cody's wedding truly so unique! It was an absolute honor to be there and to photograph these two very special peoples day.  It could not have been more perfect. 

Taos El Monte Sagrado | Liz + Andrew

When I don't have the proper words to articulate how I'm feeling I'll usually just quote a song verse. I think The Notorious B.I.G said it best here. "It was all a dream." ⭐️🌙💫

No, but seriously... this wedding was amazing. Also, Andrew gave Liz a puppy as his wedding gift to her! So basically he goes down in history as the best groom ever.  This was my first time shooting at El monte Sagrado and it did not disappoint! Truly spectacular!
