Las Vegas Smith Center Wedding of Devin and Lee

September 26, 2015 | By | One Comment

This wedding had it all, and the photos below are an excellent example of how wedding photography is so many kinds of photography all rolled into one: photojournalism, bridal portraits, family portraits, product, food, architectural, event, in every kind of lighting situation. The bride is stunningly gorgeous and dynamic, her groom is so handsome and suave. Two strong, loving, emotional families filled with camera friendly family and friends. One of the most iconic and elegant venues in Las Vegas – The Smith Center in downtown Las Vegas (DTLV), right next to the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health Las Vegas, also known as the Frank Gehry building. Details galore in dress and decor. Really a perfect storm of awesome. Please enjoy these highlights from one of my all time favorite weddings. Thank you and giant congratulations to Devin, Lee and Devin’s mom Nita. You guys are fantastic.

Neon Museum Elopement and DTLV Photo Session with Chant’e and Renard

September 2, 2015 | By | No Comments

Oh MAN these guys were a BLAST, and so in love, having so much fun! With clients this relaxed and happy and CAMERA-READY, it doesn’t get any easier to photograph nor more fun than this.

From the moment my two assistants and I met these guys at the Neon Boneyard they were all smiles, all hugs, all fun. And we had so much fun that the time just flew.

Like a lot of guys, Renard wasn’t crazy about spending an hour and a half with an unknown photographer, didn’t think it would be necessary, probably thought it would be boring. But his beautiful bride-to-be Chant’e saw something in my photography that made her have to have it. So Renard went along. But by the end (we went a little over, just ‘cuz we were making so much pretty and having so much fun) we all wondered where the time had gone. I coulda shot for a couple more hours.

Quality Las Vegas Party Bus Photos – Is It Possible?

August 14, 2015 | By | No Comments

Have you heard that you can’t get quality party bus photos because the bus is moving and the light is so low? I have – from other photographers. But as you can see in the photos below and in the words of my clients, that just ain’t so.

“Steven did an amazing job for our Las Vegas wedding reception!! All of the photos were taken in low lighting, many on a moving party bus, and they came out incredible!!! Not many photographers would be up to the challenge, but Steven Joseph photography delivered. I’m grateful he was able to capture the joy of our special occasion, would highly recommend!”

These guys had been deployed in Afghanistan as a nurse and an Apache helicopter pilot, respectively, and they and their friends had a lot of steam to blow off. They *earned* the right to get a little crazy and to go all out Vegas. And they did.

After getting married at their hotel chapel (into which outside photographers are not allowed) I met these guys at The Aria. We climbed aboard two party busses. I put up a couple of small speedlites, and away we rode.

We hit the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, we went to DTLV downtown Las Vegas Fremont Street Experience and we ended up at the Bellagio. We just missed the fountain show, so I stayed around for an extra half hour to catch the fountain show and to wrap it up with a final group photo in front of the famous Bellagio fountain, in a crowd of hundreds. After the final shot these guys walked across the street to continue the party at one of the clubs on The Strip.

Looking for excellent photography to record your raucous Las Vegas Party Bus experience? Give us a call. We’ll take care of the photography so you can focus on cutting loose.

Brothers Wayne Huang and Matt Huang at Black Hat Def Con photo Tour Valley of Fire and Nelson

August 6, 2015 | By | No Comments

Two brilliant and successful brothers, Wayne Huang and Matt Huang, are visiting Vegas for the Black Hat / Def Con security conference. They wanted magazine-quality photography documenting their day walking around Valley of Fire and the Vegas desert.

We love doing that!!!

All that’s missing from these portraits is an album cover or book to put ’em on. LOL These guys are such high-octane performers that I won’t be surprised to see them produce one or both.

While walking around we discussed everything under the sun, including when Artificial Intelligence takes over, the Taiwan – China conflict, cyber hacking by national militaries, why so many guns in America, the early history of the publicly-available Internet and the emergence & evolution of Messaging Service Providers (MSPs) then Application Service Providers (ASPs) to what is now called “the Cloud”, how Sun Yat-sen is like China’s Martin Luther King or Ghandi, why it’s smart for a Chinese man to take very good care of his wife’s parents, how self-driving automobiles are going to transform cities (no parking garages, no parking spaces, most won’t need to own a car, ability to work while being driven increasing productivity, etc).

It was a long, hot, deeply interesting and engaging day with two great guys.

Big THANK YOUS to Shabazz and to my son Mason for outstanding assisting.

Dry Lake Bed and Lake Las Vegas – Ha and Louie Elope to Las Vegas

August 1, 2015 | By | No Comments

All the way from Vietnam, Ha and Louie eloped to Las Vegas to get married. Smartly, they chose two locations that are quintessentially Vegas and desert American West – the Dry Lake Bed, and Lake Las Vegas, home to The Westin, Ravella, The Lake Club and Reflection Bay at Lake Las Vegas.
We captured their sparkling new love for each other in the bright vast dry lake bed desert and among the green trees and elegance of Lake Las Vegas. It was truly a pleasure to meet and to work with these two beautiful folks. Congratulations Luong and Ha!
