Noreen and Patrick's Santa Fe Theme Wedding

A fairy tale theme wedding with Aladdin as the theme.  This was definitely one of the funnest weddings I've had the pleasure to photograph.  A two day event in Santa Fe with an evening wedding ceremony reception at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe Golf Course 

Then culminating the next day with a beautiful full on reception at the Lodge at Santa Fe with great music, food and belly dancers! 

The Aladdin theme was a beautiful touch..

Creative Portraits by Dolores; In the Beginning

About eleven years ago, Dolores decided she wanted to share her love of photography with fellow pet lovers.  Being the happy owner of a Pug by the name of Mugsey, she took her cameras, and a mobile studio that encompassed some lighting equipment and a few backdrops, to the annual Pug Party;  a get together of like minded Pug owners sponsored by the local Pug Rescue,  and offered Pug Portraits to all that came.  Thus was the beginning of Mugshots and Pawprints, a mobile portrait studio for pets.  But it didn't stop there.
Mugsey was blind in one eye. 
Lola...She was a Showgirl
Roxie was a Rescue Pug

Dolores wanted to continue doing what she loved and expanded the little business into what is known today as Creative Portraits by Dolores.  These days Dolores enjoys capturing some very special weddings around Albuquerque and surrounding areas such as Los Lunas, Belen and Santa Fe and building strong relationships with those brides and their families at the same time. These relationships have matured and led to further portraits sessions as their families grew.  Maternity and newborn portraits which led to small family shoots.  Its all been so gratifying to watch the portrait studio grow.
