The more I do weddings, the more I love them. It is wonderful to be a part of such wonderful affirmations of love, I never fail to be humbled by the experience.
Spring is a favorite time for me to shoot weddings, I can understand why it is such a popular time to do vows.
Blooming flowers, warm weather that beckons everyone outside to celebrate new life, it is the perfect time to say I do and consecrate a new beginning.
I was lucky this past week to be invited to photograph a wedding for a long time friend and her now new husband. The Anderson wedding was held outside in the courtyard of an Albuquerque hotel, and it couldn't have been more beautiful.

The dress was lovely, a dreamy concoction of embroidered satin and lace, a gauzy veil and classic shoes, and a glamorous tiara to top it all off.
Two of the gorgeous younger girls walked down the aisle shyly, strewing flowers for the brides walk to the alter.
The handsome groom escorted his wife, how could he help but notice how happy she was?
The reception lasted late into the evening, with dancing and toasts by many of the family members and friends. The romantic glow wasn't just an effect of the camera, the joy of the couple was palpable, and shared by everyone lucky enough to be there.
It was a sweet wedding, and a sweet couple. Lucky me to be the photographer. Pardon the pun, but I definitely got to have my cake, and eat it too!
