Penn Jillette wins $100,000 for Opportunity Village

May 21, 2013 | By | No Comments

By now a lot of people know how Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller made it into the final two of Celebrity Apprentice. And many know that Penn won the ice cream challenge, thereby raising $100,000 for his and my favorite charity – Opportunity Village. It is always my privilege to assist Opportunity Village any way I can. I was so happy to be there for PR Red Carpet photography of the rollout of Penn’s ice cream flavor at the Walgreen’s on the Las Vegas Strip. Kudos to Penn Jillette for helping bring the incredibly successful model of OV to a national audience.Kids love ice cream.Blue Man Group came out to announce Penn Jillette’s ice cream flavor and show support for Opportunity Village.This is roll out day. By Tuesday Walgreen’s shelves were bare of Penn Jillette’s flavor everywhere in Vegas.
Thank you lovely ladies of Jubilee!Teller eating ice cream Vegas-style.

Sofia and Todd – She Found Her Superman – Las Vegas Engagement Photographers

May 17, 2013 | By | 4 Comments

We love couples with a sense of humor, who come to the shoot with a story to tell and supporting props, but especially we love couples who work hard for great photos – ‘cuz great photos are hard work. And fun!

Sometimes we use small video lights to bring attention to the great little moments we’ve elicited from our couples.

Our photography looks different than the average “available light” photography, because we use professional lighting. You should look this good! 🙂

More fun story telling. I really love the hi-key blown-out background while Todd and Sofia are perfectly exposed. It’s nice when your photographer knows how to use his lighting gear! 🙂

We love to use available light when it’s this good! Notice the “short-side lighting” on Todd?Is this an “available light” photo? No. I’ve put a kiss of light on Todd and Sofia to bring this photo to Level Zing!What did I ask Sofia to whisper in Todd’s ear that got them looking so happy? You’ll have to hire me to find out LOL 🙂

Another beautiful moment with just a kiss of off-camera light. Actually, if you really want to know, I’m popping seven lights on to Sofia and Todd. But most couples just wanna look awesome, like this.

Great family photos are so important. We shot these in a very dark foyer – to stay out of the ninety degree heat & wind. We bring ten speedlites and professional light modifiers so dark rooms are no problem!

Las Vegas Elopement Spring Mountain Ranch

April 18, 2013 | By | One Comment

While we love shooting at Spring Mountain Ranch Nevada State Park for its unmatched natural beauty, we cannot at this time recommend that anybody get married there because of the serious personnel problems they are currently experiencing. Many photographers have reported being harassed, intimidated, even shaken down by some of the Rangers working at Spring Mountain Ranch (SMR) while working with couples, families, and even full wedding parties. Shocking and hard to believe, but true. The photography community is trying to work with the management of the Nevada State Park system to get some relief, and to transform SMR into the kind of vibrant, busy, revenue-generating venue we know it can become, one that welcomes professional photography, and that conducts weddings with professionalism and respect.
