Las Vegas Strip Wedding Photography Caesars Bellagio Ashley and Nick

May 25, 2015 | By | No Comments

We feel so lucky when such fine, fun people as Ashley and Nick find us out on that Internet thing and trust us to document the unrepeatable moments immediately following their chapel wedding. These guys had just flown in from Denver and gotten married when we met them in front of Caesars Palace. We ventured out on the Las Vegas Strip with no particular plan other than to make pretty and have fun. We made it all the way to the Bellagio Fountain then looped back to Caesars. Even though they were exhausted they soldiered on, looking like Princess and Prince on their first night of marriage. We are truly honored to serve great folks like Ashley and Nick. Giant congratulations to you guys!!!

Big thanks to the Mrs (Chris Fogarty) and the eager hard working Shabazz for assisting!

Neon Boneyard Wedding Photography and DTLV Downtown Las Vegas Fremont Street Elopement of Ashley and Paul

May 25, 2015 | By | No Comments

Couples don’t get much cooler, better looking, and just downright nice than Ashley and Paul. They got married in the historic Neon Boneyard Museum among close family and friends. And then we bopped right over to DTLV downtown las vegas, the East Fremont area of Old Vegas that’s in the midst of a renaissance and flowering of street art, graffiti, music, great restaurants, and overall historic Vegas good stuff. The fact that this former military couple – both US Air Force Veterans – got married the day before Memorial Day is just a cherry on top of an outstanding, excellent, gorgeous day of beauty and memories.

Big ups to my assistants, the lovely Mrs Fogarty my wife Chris, and my young eager assistant Shabazz. Thank you guys!

Green Valley Ranch Wedding

May 24, 2015 | By | No Comments

What happens when two very-much-in-love and uber-fun people make it official by getting married at Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas? Nancy and Jordan show us all how it’s done. How to have fun. How to be in love. How to enjoy family and friends. And how to look fabulous doing it.

One of my favorite Las Vegas Green Valley Ranch Weddings.

May 20, 2015 | By | No Comments

What?! You say two incredibly kicked back happy people who have been in love, like, forever got married after years of togetherness? You say he’s a decorated military veteran, and she is a hard working super smart nurse? You say they pulled out all the stops, and their bevy of beautiful bridesmaids and gaggle of rowdy groomsmen respectively sat through a full traditional Catholic service at St. Francis of Assisi? You say that everybody, who’d come in from all over the world, then segued to one of the most beautiful and perfect places in which to celebrate a wedding ceremony in Las Vegas – the green grassy verdant Hilton Lake Las Vegas? You say all that happened?

Yea, all that happened.

Feast your eyes on the gorgeous. I hope you enjoy seeing these photos documenting the beauty and fun 1/2 as much as I loved making them.

And congratulations to one of my very favorite couples in the world, Nikki and JR!

Mt. Charleston Wedding – Las Vegas Mountain Wedding – Erin and Bryan

May 20, 2015 | By | No Comments

Please enjoy this gorgeous Mt Charleston Las Vegas Mountain wedding of the beautiful and fun Erin and Bryan.

Bryan happened to call us while we were driving up the Pacific Coast Highway during our annual family vacation. Bryan called us because our good friend and very good photographer Marie Grantham – who was a guest at Erin and Bryan’s wedding – referred us (thanks Marie!) My wife Chris picked up the phone as usual, and I could hear her having a fun and relaxed conversation with Bryan. Bryan had a ton of questions, and Chris and Bryan worked it all out with the windows down and the California summer breeze blowing in our hair. I’m pretty sure she took a deposit with our Square credit card reader while I drove. It’s a nice life, but someone’s gotta live it! LOL

And what a beautiful wedding! I don’t have to really say much at all as these photos show what great families and great friends these two have. All I will say is that the views from The Resort on Mt Charleston in the Fall are unmatched in Las Vegas – it feels much more like the mountains of Colorado or Utah than the reality of 45 minutes from Summerlin, Las Vegas.

You want crisp, cool air and non-stop green trees and endless mountain vistas in Las Vegas in August or Setember? The only choice is The Resort on Mount Charleston.

Elopement in DTLV Downtown Las Vegas – Kourtney and Matt get outta the cold and tie the knot

May 17, 2015 | By | No Comments

To get out of the cold, to marry the love of their life, to get a mini vacation rush of excitment and neon and fun, Kourtney and Matt flew to Las Vegas to get married! When I met them at the Container Park in DTLV Downtown Las Vegas – East Fremont Street area – they had just left the chapel, and were visibly giddy and adrenaline high. Even though it was colder than usual in Vegas, Kourtney – a tough upstate New Yawkah – toughed it out, declining to accept my fleece jacket the several times I offered it, and (wisely) declining my large beat-up Merrell slip-on shoes to give her a break from her super cute pink high heels. She’s tough that girl. And she and Matt were relaxed and smiling the whole time we walked the East Fremont. We had no particular spots to go. We were just looking for some public wall art graffiti, some neon, and (to me) most importantly some real emotion.

I think we found it.
