Sandia Mountain holds a stunning urban peak with a panoramic view, best enjoyed with a tram ride. Since Sandia Mountain is not too high, you can add an earthy tone to your wedding pictures with ease. The skyline of the city and the mountain backdrops would add a rugged look to your photographs. Choose to visit during bright daylight to capture the mixture of grey and green in the ambiance. For some romantic pictures, the late evening would be a great choice. This destination is one of the best for those who are planning a snowy wedding. The only downside to this fantastic site is that you might have to walk a long way in some rugged terrain. So, it will be hard for your photography team to bring heavy equipment.

It is not easy to create a vintage look with variety. In any given destination, there would be one or two sites with such flare. However, the entire Nob Hill is one big neon light-filled chic destination. The old-fashioned shop streets, murals, classic architecture, and funky Route 66 would be enough to capture a thousand different pictures with a unique look. Stay back after sunset to capture some of the unique icons of the land. The bright lights with a dusk ambiance would be perfect for pictures with a mid-of-the-century look and a deco-inspired art touch.
