ABQ BioPark: Outdoor Engagement Session in New Mexico

Because we, your entirely devoted Perfect Wedding Guide team in New Mexico, have uniquely positioned ourselves between the local wedding community, and Albuquerque + Santa Fe’s beautiful engaged couples, we kinda get the best of both worlds. We get to support small businesses, and keep the state’s eclectic market thriving through all our dutifully tended-to platforms. And, we get to offer relief, not resistance, for couples in the midst of wedding planning — humbly gifting them everything from online tools and contact info for local professionals, to extravagant, IRL (in real life) wedding shows, to our adorable, purse-sized print magazine.

Not gonna lie, we LOVE doing it, especially that last part. Our magazine, which we build by hand and print locally twice a year, is chock full of tips, tricks, coupons, goodies, and giveaways. The best part of all of it, though, are the love stories and inspiring photos that fill the pages with — yes, eye candy — but most importantly, local inspiration from real people.

And real couples like Meriah + Daniel! We’re eternally grateful that the local couple decided to go with Matt Blasing Photography for their engagement session, or we might not be here falling in love with their photos right now. Matt Blasing Photography has won our PWG Elite Award for Best Photographer for like, the last thousand years, and it’s no wonder why. Matt + Amy‘s vivid and authentic photography style never strays from excellence, and the warm hearts of the husband-wife duo win over everyone who meets them. (Just read their reviews, if you don’t believe us.)

Shooting at the ABQ BioPark, too, the forever adventurous and outdoorsy couple perfectly mirrored the natural vibes of the local treasure. Rugged, and intrinsically New Mexican, the couple’s personalities and love story emanate from their session, and we can’t get enough.

Pili + Sienna’s Albuquerque Engagement Session {Chrisi K Photography}

If you’ll recall, we recently posted our thoughts on the time-old debate: Should you have an urban or natural setting for your engagement photos? With New Mexico’s impressive and historically rich architecture on one hand, and the unrivaled mesas, mountains, deserts, rivers, and forests on the other, it’s a nearly impossible choice for local engaged couples.

But what if you didn’t have to choose? 

Yes, it’s true. We’re here with delightful information for the cosmopolitan mountain-fanatics and city-loving forest dwellers alike… You can have both! Or at least you can according to Albuquerque’s new favorite engaged couple, Pili + Sienna. Instead of compromising, the fiancées opted to have a two-part engagement session with Chrisi K Photography — one of New Mexico’s leading wedding photographers.

Starting in Zendo, Chrisi K Photography and the gorgeous couple graced the whitewashed coffee shop walls with their unbridled laughter and love. Using the industrial-chic interior as their backdrop, Pili + Sienna sipped coffee from matching mugs and stole kisses in front of the exposed brick, which always features local art. Complete with polaroids and shots of their tattoos, the first half of their engagement session with Chrisi K Photography is everything we could hope for in an urban love story.

Then, traversing up to the more northern parts of our lovely state, Chrisi K Photography shot the couple’s happy news in the mountainous desert landscape for which New Mexico is famed. Dancing in the open air, blowing bubbles, and just enjoying each other’s presence, Pili + Sienna’s devotion nearly jumps off the photos here.

We feel extremely spoiled to have the best of both worlds in this one, gorgeous engagement session. So hey, thank you Chrisi K Photography, for capturing Pili + Sienna’s pronouncement of love in all its wonder and glory! And to all other engaged couples, feel free to follow in suit Pili + Sienna — if you want urban and natural landscapes for your photos, don’t settle. Albuquerque + Santa Fe’s wedding experts are here to make sure you can have it all.
