There is nothing we love more on a Monday than a captivating bride and this New Mexico Mountain bridal shoot is no exception. Captured by the talented Emily Joanne Wedding Films & Photography, she presents a picturesque portrait of a bride amongst the heart of the New Mexico Sandia mountains in the hidden treasure, Paa-ko Ridge. The results? Breathtaking.
We love how the volume of the dress works alongside the backdrop of the greenery and mountains to highlight just how enchanting the bride is. With a bride, gown, and make-up as magical as the stunning view around her, it is no wonder that we cannot get enough of this shoot!
The photos speak for themselves, check out the exquisite shoot below.
Paa-ko Ridge is a New Mexico treasure nestled in the Sandia Mountains, hidden from view. The beautifully manicured golf course lays throughout the lush valley, with a rising mountain backdrop to complete the epic views. This hidden gem is may be one of New Mexico’s most beautiful wedding venues, and it provided all the gorgeous scenery for our bridal inspiration shoot.
I love photographing brides; it’s the reason I got in to wedding photography. There is something so magical when a bride slips into her gown. She shines with radiance and confidence unlike any other. Bridal gowns are often the most expensive garment a woman will ever wear, and only wearing it once seems like such a shame that we love it when brides let us dress them up and photograph them away from the chaos of the wedding day. Getting gorgeous images out of the deal is the cherry on top!
We get to work with such amazing vendors throughout the state, and this team helped us hit it out of the park. Emily of Floriography, NM has such a vision for beautiful blooms. The bouquet and hairpiece she provided for this bridal shoot were perfect and unique, complete with pink pineapples! Bridal Elegance by Darlene provided the gorgeous Allure Bridals blush ballgown, and C. Johnson Makeup created the side swept do and bridal look. We love working with such awesome people!
