Haley + Wyatt | The Perfect Fall Wedding

Okay, okay. It’s true we’ve already had our first, big snow here in New Mexico…But we’ll be danged if we don’t celebrate a fall wedding at least one more time before winter is officially here!  And plus, we all know how fickle southwestern weather can be — there’s always a good chance that, after dumping […]

When you know, you know. And yes – we do know that’s the most cliché way to start a wedding blog like, ever, but it’s cliché for a reason!

When you’re surrounded by love stories all day, like the Shayla Cristine Photography team so blessedly is, it’s pretty easy to see how storytelling comes into play in every aspect of our lives. From behind a lens, we witness how every meet-cute, chance encounter, and coincidence ends up leading one person to another. And then, […]

If we’re being honest, all it takes is a whisper of rustic details and colorful florals to make the hearts at Shayla Cristine Photography flutter. So when we caught wind of the vibe Rachel and Ramon were curating for their wedding, we were already swooning!  Of course, though, the reality of the day was so […]

Okay, okay – we know what you’re thinking. Is this actually a real wedding? Or is it just a couple of gorgeous models looking fabulous and palpably in-love on a beach?  Plot twist: it’s both!  Lais, the stunning bride you see gliding across the sand as if it were her own private runway, is a […]

What, did you think the only thing we have to fawn over is our collection of perfectly imperfect love stories and the photos that accompany them? It’s true we could gush endlessly about all the couples that the Shayla Cristine Photography team gets to photograph and become lifelong friends with, but there’s still even more […]

Despite what you may have heard, there really is no wrong way to plan a wedding. For some couples, they start with the big task of choosing a venue.

Have you noticed the shift in light here in New Mexico? It’s true that wintery new year is upon us! Swap out your iced coffee for hot if you haven’t already — it’s time for glowing fires, cozy evenings, and the smell of wood burning in the early morning.  But before we dive head first […]

Here’s the thing: no wedding has ever been done twice. Details, color schemes, and venues might be shared between one set of newlyweds in New Mexico and the next, but you can’t carbon copy love! Each couple, each unparalleled story of romance is a harmony of separate notes and moments acquiescing under perfect timing to […]
