Kevin’s Photography: Albuquerque Wedding Photographer Highlight

We could give you a hundred reasons why to choose local, small businesses over corporate chains for your wedding. {I mean, that’s kind of literally what our team is all about, right?} But our favorite reason, and the reason we also chose to work with small businesses owners is as such: they’re real people.

Well, yes, they’re obviously real people, with skills they’ve worked hard to cultivate and be able to share with you. But more than being tangibly real, their businesses are also their lives and passions, which means their actual personalities are on display and influence their work. So when you work with a real person, you get the chance to connect with them on a more human level. Instead of having a troupe of strangers parading about on your wedding day, you have people there who you trust and actually get along with.

Take Kevin’s Photography for example. Their studio of handpicked artists here in Albuquerque, New Mexico all share a common vision and all work together on human levels with one another. For over 33 years Kevin’s Photography has been connecting with engaged couples, cultivating working relationships with them, and giving them the best for an invaluable aspect of their wedding day.

Yes, their work speaks for them, but when you sit down for a consultation with Kevin or one of his highly qualified team members, you get to actually meet, face to face, the person who will be there capturing your wedding. You get the chance to check out your photographer’s personality and style, and make sure its inline with yours and your vision. Plus, you can see and know that it’s more than just a job for Kevin’s Photography — dedicated to their craft and doing what they love, Kevin’s team pours their hearts into their photographic art.

We feel infinitely lucky to have such a variety of local wedding experts in Albuquerque + Santa Fe to choose from, and with businesses like Kevin’s Photography keeping the love in their work, it’s no wonder we’re always staying inspired. So stay local friends! You won’t regret it.

Kevin Dooley of Kevin’s Photography is an over-qualified individual who loves what he does. He really is enthusiastic about taking photos and turns out some of the most beautiful photos I’ve ever seen. Some of the photos of our daughter’s wedding look like they belong in a magazine! He was fun and easy to work with. We would hire him again!

Dramatic New Mexican Skies with Local Wedding Professionals

Like all our favorite things — wine, cheese, Golden Girls reruns — the Perfect Wedding Guide Diamond Dash just continues to get better with age. Which, if you happened to catch any of our stories or posts from Sunday on social media, you’ll know it was one for the books! The energy and liveliness of the wedding show paralleled no other, and left us feeling inspired, reinvigorated, and so grateful to be a part of the local wedding community here in Albuquerque + Santa Fe.

With another round of wedding shows down for the entire year as well, we can’t help but to reflect on what made 2018 so spectacular. For us, it was undoubtedly the wedding professionals, like the ones who brought their A-game to the Diamond Dash, who we have the chance to support and be supported by. Being members of the New Mexico Wedding Professionals, or NMWP for short, is just one of the ways we get to do so, by working with and for the small businesses owners who make up the group of experts.

And when we say experts, we mean it. Florists, officiants, venues, photographers — if you can name it, there’s a dedicated member of NMWP who can do it. So when this styled shoot came to fruition from their wedding-obsessed minds, we were absolutely swooning.

With the stage set at The View Event Center — whose booth at the Diamond Dash was gorgeous, by the way — Kevin’s Photography captured the urban magic of the venue perfectly. Charlotte’s Flowers, one of the many talented wedding veterans of Albuquerque + Santa Fe, arranged the gorgeous modern bouquets, while Bridal Elegance by Darlene and Suits Unlimited outfitted the couple.

We had a wonderful time capturing the essence of a wedding day at this beautiful venue! The eclectic decor was a perfect setting for the elegant styles of the bridal outfits and flowers, each working together for a unique photo shoot every bride dreams of. The dramatic New Mexico skies presented a perfect background for this couple from the wrap around balcony overlooking the picturesque city of Albuquerque! Appreciation to all who participated in sharing their time and talents.

Kevin, Kevin’s Photography

We second that Kevin! So much appreciation to all who participated in the styled shoot, and continue to serve local, engaged couples with their wedding expertise and industry knowledge.

An Alternative Bride {Lauren + Joshua}

A special photo story shared by Kevin’s Photography

Kevins Photo 2

Every couple must put a spin on their wedding to truly make it their own. Lauren used her tattoos to add personality to her dress, and with the ombre turquoise wedding cake, Lauren’s sparkly turquoise heels, and Joshua’s suit with the turquoise handkerchief, the wedding definitely displayed the couple’s favorite color.Kevins Photo 6 Kevins Photo 7 Kevins Photo 8 Kevins Photo 9 Kevins Photo 10

Thanks to Kevin’s Photography for capturing this amazing couple on their perfect day. Wishing Joshua and Lauren all the happiness in the world! For more on wedding and wedding planning visit PerfectWeddingGuide.com!
