Engagement Session at old St. Thomas – abandoned Mormon settlement near Valley of Fire

April 28, 2012 | By | No Comments

These guys are so adventurous, such free-thinkers, so very much in love, and so FUN! We all went down to old St. Thomas, a Mormon settlement founded in 1865, and abandoned when it was flooded by the rising waters of Lake Mead in 1938. In more recent times, as the waters of Lake Mead fall and rise, the town is exposed during dry spells. After a drive to the gorgeous Valley of Fire National Park, we got to the trail head to St. Thomas and hiked in. I think my favorite part of St. Thomas was the dry reeds, and the natural vista punctuated by occasional concrete foundations of the abandoned settlement.

Fingers crossed, hoping the 100 year old floor doesn’t collapse 0_OThese guys have a very well developed sense of the dramatic. Very camera-aware in the very best way – playful, pretty, fun.

Trash The Dress – Post Wedding Day Portraits with Rene + Chris

April 24, 2012 | By | 4 Comments

Many couples choose to take the pressure off their wedding day by opting for a dedicated bride & groom portrait session several days before or after their wedding. These sessions are also known as “Trash The Dress” or “Bridals”.
I love everything about Trash The Dress sessions – even more-so when my couples come to the shoot with a vision of the photos they want to make and the supporting props. :-) Balloons, Frames, Sparklers, Chalk Boards. Fun!!!Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, Las Vegas, Trash The Dress SessionTrash The Dress

Mister & Missus - It's Official!

I *highly* recommend pre-wedding / post-wedding Trash The Dress sessions for so many reasons. Away from the hectic pace and overflow emotions of the wedding day, my couples are more relaxed, they’re fresh, and the portraits are always AWESOME! No matter how much time you plan to dedicate to Bride & Groom portraits on your wedding day – with everyone tugging your dress wanting your time from the Officiant to your parents to the venue coordinator to the DJ – trust me – it won’t be enough time to make the kind and quality and amount of portraits you want and deserve.I am so grateful to Rene & Chris for working so hard for me. And I’m *especially* grateful to Rene for doing her homework and suggesting this location. It’s my new favorite! Thank you Rene!Trash the Dress, Bridal Portraits, Day-After Portraits

When Jennifer Met Chris

April 24, 2012 | By | No Comments

They were destined to be together! Chris was transferred to Jennifer’s high school school his senior year for only 3 months. Instant attraction. Too bad Jennifer was dating his best friend at the time! They remained “just friends” for a long time even though they saw each other alot. Finally after “making eyes” at one another for 9 years, they started dating. The two of them have gone through a lot together and have built a strong foundation of trust, love, and admiration. Anyone that gets to know them, sees this right away. Jennifer and Chris, you are a great couple. It was a pleasure getting to know you.
Congratulations! You guys Rock!
                                                                                                    Love the Red Converse!                                                                              Lucky Charm has deep meaning for them so this was the perfect pic.
