The Albuquerque Journal's final edition (yes, final) of Sage magazine happened to be the annual wedding (celebrations) issue. Every year, we shoot a stylized wedding session for the main story of the wedding edition. And every year, the shoot day ends up being one of the coldest days in December. This time was no different. The models were troopers dealing with the cold. That fur stole she's wearing in a few frames I brought from my personal vintage collection at the last minute because the temperature was dropping as the day progressed. I knew the inspiration was a vintage wedding so it worked and kept her warm, a win win. I've shot three of these wedding sessions over my years here at the paper and always loved working on them.

Heights Community Center 75th Anniversary Party

A place where I've spent many Tuesday nights dancing and hanging out with friends, Heights Community Center celebrates 75 years of happy feet walking through its doors (and dancing on its floor).

Tis the season for gorgeous weather. Here in New Mexico the fall colors are fading in and out across the state. This is my absolute favorite season. You want to be outside all-the-time, doors and windows are left wide open, and no, we don't have bugs that bother you. The light is also amazing outside at this time of year. Great light, great weather, great surroundings, it's a perfect combination for outdoor portraits.

Wicked is still playing at Popejoy Hall as I post this, even though this photo was taken last month. I absolutely love this show so I jumped at the chance to shoot them loading in the set. For anyone who knows the show, you know they are assembling Glinda's Bubble.
