Sam and Hap had a truly memorable wedding last week at Artwork Network in the Santa Fe Art District! Jo and I were in heaven as photographers with the all the unique details and locations that we had to work with. Not to mention how genuine and perfect these two are along with their friends and family. You remember these two from their fun engagement session on Broadway this winter, right?
Hap got ready at his home in the Golden Triangle while Sam and her crew got ready at the lovely and quirky Curtis Hotel.
They knew that they wanted an experience with their photos on their wedding day so we made time for that by doing a first look on Santa Fe. I loved all of the funky storefronts that we had to work with! As a nice break from the heat, we stopped off and Renegade Brewery for a nice hoppy beverage.
They tied the knot back at the art gallery with their closest friends and family to witness. I loved the touch that they added by having friends ready passages from some of their favorite books which offered perspective on life and love.
I had many friend faces at their wedding that greeted me. I owe Michael and James a big thanks for introducing Sam and Hap to Elevate. Katie and I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding at Arrowhead a few years ago. I was truly touched to hear James speak of how much they appreciate what we do after being married for a few years and looking back on their photos. Sam. Hap. Michael. James. You are perfect examples of why I do what I do!
And how about that gorilla mural right? I think that photo perfectly sums up how free, fun and genuinely awesome Hap and Sam are as people. Can’t wait to see you two again! Congrats! –Ryan
