Why do people from all over the world come to Vegas to get married?
- There’s so many direct and inexpensive flights to Vegas;
- Because one can have any kind of wedding imaginable, from the simplest two person ten-minute affair all the way to the most elaborate;
- Your guests will be entertained, be it golf, or Broadway-style shows, the tremendous Vegas music scene, and of course gambling.
In the nearly four years I’ve lived in Las Vegas, I’ve photographed weddings of people from all over the world. Places like: Canada, Egypt, Nigeria, Australia, Germany, Hungary, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Norway and Great Britain, where recently I’ve come across 77 Diamonds, a London jeweler. They offer really good selection and pricing in wedding and engagement rings. While I don’t know if my British couples bought their rings there, I am reminded of UK couples Wendy & Andy, and Rachel & Matthew, whose work I highlight below.
Rachel and Matthew had a very traditional fun wedding at Caesar’s Palace (where the couple decided to buy out the in-house photographer to hire me so we could have some extra fun!).
And Wendy and Andy, who are one of the most un-traditional couples I’ve ever photographed. I love Brits! and I really look forward to working with my next couple from the Motherland!
Wendy and Andy went all-out – working very hard with me to get some amazing images. This light painting in Lake Meade required a long drive, swatting away pesty bugs, and standing in the water for too long. They were great sports about it, and got the kind of unique photos that are only possible with hard work.
One of my favorite shots at the Welcome To Las Vegas Sign. Is Wendy rocking the red dress? Yeah!The lovely Rachel was glowing on her wedding day.The anticipation is killing Matthew.I LOVE the moment the bride slips the ring on her husband’s hand, when the transition from betrothed to Married.
These guys remind me of Sid and Nancy.Wendy’s sister is totally into the alternative vibe.We call the thing Wendy and Andy are standing in a “river” here in Las Vegas.
