The Wedding of Danielle and Michael - Albuquerque, NM


Danielle and Michael (aka Taylor) were married at Fiesta on the Green in Albuquerque, New Mexico in June. I first met them both when I did their engagement session at Hartnett Park in Albuquerque in 2016. I immediately loved them as a couple and as a family. Their sweet daughter, Lily is such a smiley little one and so full of happiness!

A day accented with purple (my favorite color, yay!) handmade bouquets and boutonnieres, fresh purple roses, a gorgeous Belle-inspired wedding dress, Chantilly cake, burlap, belt buckles, and boots made for a little country and class.

Danielle and Michael's first glance overlooked the course. He waited at the end of the fence line for his bride-to-be. When he turned, we knew he was excited! Danielle was a sight to see!

Their ceremony was lovely. It brought about lots of laughter and love from everybody, but my favorite part (aside from the vows of course) was when they presented their little girl, Lily, with their vows to her and gifted her a necklace as a token of those words to keep forever. It was a special moment I know she'll cherish as she grows.

We got to enjoy the sunset together for photos. The wind was brutal, but the two of them really toughed it out to get beautiful photos! And it was worth it! Thank goodness for my lovely husband who kept Lily entertained while we took those much anticipated sunset pictures! 

Their reception was held inside the banquet hall at Fiesta on the Green and was sprinkled with laughter, dancing, great food, and flying bouquets! We especially enjoyed the polaroid guest book. I've never personally seen a photo guest book so packed full of love and happiness. 

It was such a great time capturing the wedding story of Danielle and Michael. And as always, I am eternally grateful for their trust in me as a photographer. 

Thank you for having us!
