30A Wedding Photographer for all humans in love 



Santa Fe National Forest | Destination Wedding Photographer

Kelsea and Justin had an amazing wedding camping weekend in Santa Fe National Forest! This was so so cool to be a part of and share these few days with them!

They got ready with their closest friends and family in a secluded cabin near Cuba, New Mexico. Before heading to the mountain for their small intimate ceremony, Kelsea and Justin had a private first look. After spending those first few moments just the two of them, we went off roading to the top of the mountain for their secluded ceremony! The road we took to their ceremony is actually one of their favorite places to four wheel together! Making it even more special! Here are a few other trails near Santa Fe to check out!

After saying I DO, we enjoyed a small break between the rain and dinner. We were able to get some beautiful mountain top portraits of the two of them that I am still gushing over!!

The next day there was a reception at their camping spot in Santa Fe National forest. They cooked out, danced, drank and just enjoyed their time together. With Covid restrictions, many of their friends and family couldn’t travel to the original reception.

But then in July, they had another reception with their friends and family in Michigan where Kelsea is from.

This time spent with Kelsea and Justin was surreal! I’m so grateful to celebrated these days with them & feel so honored to have captured all these moments for them!
