Laura Mae and Kyle | Silver City, New Mexico Sunset Wedding Portraits

The subject line for Laura Mae’s inquiry email read “Hello, New Friend!”, so I knew right away this was a great match. When I called to ‘meet’ her over the phone, I couldn’t help but be excited for her–she was all but overflowing with bubbly energy! We talked about how she and Kyle met (on the first day of college, when the professor told the class to turn around and introduce themselves to the person sitting behind them). We talked about how Kyle left to serve an LDS mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil; and about how, after he returned two years later, life with her new coaching position at Onate High School in Las Cruces was so crazy-busy that she almost didn’t have time for dating. She told me how she finally started to find balance when she gained an assistant and learned to delegate. When her calendar finally opened up a bit, there was Kyle, and they’ve been inseparable since. 

Kyle and Laura Mae were married at the LDS Mount Timpanogos Temple in Utah (my amazing photog friend Marquette was there to capture their wedding day!)–but Laura Mae knew she wanted her Silver City Reception documented as well, and even asked if we could go out for Sunset Portraits during our time together. (Can  you guess my answer?! That’s only my FAVORITE THING EVER). 

The University Course at Scott Park was just a few streets over from the reception site, and it was the perfect location for quick evening portraits of these two. They’re so cute! They have a sweet and playful love–they quietly joke and tease, and steal kisses when they think no one is looking.

Congratulations, Laura Mae and Kyle–I’m grateful to have been a part of documenting the beginning of your life together! 

All My Best, Erin
