Albuqerque Elopement, New Mexico Desert Elopement Wedding Inspiration

This Albuquerque elopement, New Mexico desert elopement wedding inspiration brought to you by a couple eloping in the New Mexico desert, which could be likened to the Palm desert, Nevada or Arizona deserts without the crowds.

Hey lovely, we’re Emmy and Brittany, Albuquerque New Mexico, elopement photographers here at Celebrate Again. I (Emmy) grew up in the desert, so this warm sunlight has a special place in my heart. If you’re looking for inspiration for your Albuqerque elopement or New Mexico desert elopement wedding, we hope you enjoy these photos!

Albuquerque Elopement New Mexico Desert Elopement Light

One reason we love the Albuquerque, New Mexico, for desert elopements is because the desert sunlight is intense, but also crazy magical. 

Having travelled around the world to Europe, Ireland, New Zealand living in the South of the U.S.A. the rocky mountains of Colorado and the Pacific Northwest in Oregon, I can say with genuine fact that the high desert light you experience during an Albuquerque elopement is just something in off itself.

Also we just cannot forget to mention this wild landscape that is really the hidden gem of Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Many couples escape to Colorado to elope but we really believe that hidden in the forgotten state between Texas and Arizona is  a new frontier of Albuquerque that even Netflix couldn’t resist with its new studios here!

Albuqerque Elopement Landscape

This elopement was taking on a dormant volcano on the outskirts of Albuqerque. I grew up exploring these volcanos, fascinated with their rocks, ancient cliff drawing, hidden caves and endless places to explore. 

It was with great joy that I got to return to this hidden gem of a place to elope in Albuquerque with this couple.

Hey, I’m Lumalia, the main voice behind Celebrate Again. I call myself a connection architect because I have a deep passion for guiding us all to fall back in love with life through states of beauty, but many of us are far from feeling at home in our own bodies, so we seek to find safety in others. 

Yikes, that’s scary, I know; I did that for three decades, too, until I returned home to myself.

I’m so excited to share with you all I’ve learned and this beautiful journey back home to what makes you absolutely stunning just because you are alive today.
