About this Vendor

Photos should be FUN

I promise this will be fun, not awkward or stuffy. You don't have to love PDA or be super confident in front of the camera. I'll make this easy. Photos should be FUN. I want every photo I make to help you remember how you felt in that moment. My photos evoke memories and nostalgia, so you can always be transported back to those feelings. I’ve found that couples think it’s super hard to look romantic in front of the camera. And I don’t blame you guys for assuming that—you’ve probably never done this before! But I guarantee that you can not only look killer, but you can enjoy it. I promise I won’t make you awkwardly stroke your fiance’s face. I will make this easy and fun.

The best photos I have ever seen. I flashed her on my wedding day on accident, but now I would do it on purpose.

She sees the sentimental value in objects personal to you. Whether it be the dress itself, or a pair of shoes, she takes pride in the simplest things and knows more often than naught those are where the best pictures come from.

Email her and find out for yourself.

Arielei Kinzer

Santa Fe is in my bones. I left for a little while, seeing if any other place fit. But Santa Fe always called me back. It’s more than just a city, place or a destination. To me, it’s home. It’s memories. Family. History. Meaning. Nostalgia. Which is why it’s my favorite place to photograph weddings. People come here because it’s tied to a special memory for them. They either vacationed here as a kid or came to visit grandparents or maybe even grew up here themselves. And then they come back to make a new memory—a celebration of their great, big love! It’s my greatest joy and honor to photogr
