Welcome! Photographic Perspectives began with Sandra Tafoya’s vision to provide unique and artistic photographs that illuminate each couple’s unique style and personality. The proud owners and photographers, Sandra and John always offer their couples consistency as well as quality in their photos. By getting to know their clients on a personal level, Sandra and John cultivate a lasting and sincere friendship with each, the warmth and respect from this relationship shining through in their photos. This attentiveness allows for truly collaborative work, which leads to the creation of striking portraits that become lasting memories and family treasures. The long-lasting relationships they have built with their couples, have lead them to their love for providing services to high school senior and family photography and videography as well. Operating from their studio in Corrales, New Mexico, Photographic Perspectives is happy to offer on-location photography which includes outdoor photography, and indoor photography such as receptions, parties, and other events. With a love for traveling, Sandra and John enjoy serving Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Bernalillo and Santa Fe, as well as destination weddings. All of their equipment is professional equipment which helps to create beautiful portraits in many challenging conditions such as sunset photos, low light photos, bright daylight photos and a number of other various conditions. They also offer an option of having one or two photographers to photograph your special day, to help capture the tears, joy, excitement and love from more than one angle. Sandra and John also have a team of talented and trusted photographers that help them achieve their vision and exceptional service that Photographic Perspectives strives for.

Q Are you able to do indoor and outdoor photography?

As professional Albuquerque wedding photographers, we are faced with various different weather conditions. We have the experience and knowledge to create the most beautiful portrait in any condition that the lovely NM weather may bring. In our gallery on our website, you can see examples of Low Light Indoor settings, Back Lit Church Windows, Sunsets, Full Sun, and several others that we hope will give you the confidence that we have the ability to adapt to any condition. We got this!

Q How do you choose your pricing structure?

We base our prices on an hourly rate. For each hour photographing, there is typically about 6 hours of time spent beyond taking the photos. This includes, downloading the photos, culling, light balance, color balance, consultation before and after, printing or placing orders, packaging, and delivery. While it is an investment to get professional photos taken, the end result is amazing portraits that create a lifetime of treasurable moments.

Q What type of equipment do you use?

We use only professional Nikon cameras and lenses. Using professional equipment makes a world of difference in the outcome of the photographs. John's favorite example is to go to a sporting goods store and look through some binoculars that cost less than $100, and compare it to others that cost more than $2000 and you will be able to see a major difference, especially if you can try them outside.

Q What should we wear for our session?

Couples should wear colors that are alike or at least complimentary. Don’t wear colors that may contrast against each other. Also, it's best not to wear colors that blend in with the background. For example, if it's fall, and may not want to wear yellow or orange. At the end of the day, we want you to wear the style of clothes that you love and feel comfortable in.

Q Where should we take our photos?

We are located in Corrales and have a beautiful location at our home studio which has a breathtaking view of the Sandia mountains. We also have several nice locations nearby such as the Bosque, near the Rio Grande River which also has great views of the mountains. We offer a lovely studio setup if you want studio photos. We have photographed in numerous areas around Albuquerque and throughout the state of NM, so we have several suggestions for great places to photograph. Of course, we are always willing to try new locations and are open to location ideas!
