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.

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!

Palazzo Wynn Venetian Bellagio Elopement Photography – Indira and Wayne

April 21, 2015 | By | No Comments

How do you make Las Vegas hotter than it already is? Meet up with gorgeous Indira and her lucky husband Wayne from hot Cuba via hot Florida – that’s how. These guys met us in their Earth Limo over by the Palazzo / Wynn sky bridge, and we walked down The Strip making pretty. They are as nice as they are beautiful. After playing around making gorgeous at the Venetian we got back in the limo and finished up at Bellagio. We arrived just as the top-of-the-hour fountain show was ending, so we extended for a 1/2 hour, making hot hot up and around Bellagio until the fountains fired back up on the 1/2 hour. 2 hours goes very quickly even if you’re only walking a mile or so on The Strip, because it’s big, it’s wide, it’s busy, it’s pretty, and it’s fun. This kind of Las Vegas Strip Elopement Photography is one of my very favorites, and it is the perfect option for deeply in-love people who are dying to get married without the complexity and detail$ of getting married back home. Fast, fun, beautiful, warm: what’s not to love?

Las Vegas Strip Elopement of Camila and Matt

April 6, 2015 | By | No Comments

What happens when a hot Brazilian and a hunky Chicagoan come to the Las Vegas Strip to get married? This happens. My assistant and I met these guys at their hotel, where we hopped in their limo and rode to The Strip. Their driver dropped us off near The Wynn where we got some very fun and beautiful photos. We then walked south, stopping at The Venetian, Paris, and ultimately The Bellagio Fountain.
Even though it is just a 1.1 mile walk, it’s murder in dressy high heels. I offered Camila my giant beat up Merrell slip-ons several times and she finally agreed. While she looked a little funny walking between photo stops, her feet felt great!

Las Vegas Party Bus Photos – It might get a little crazy

March 30, 2015 | By | No Comments

I am delighted every time anyone hires me to document their event be it a wedding, an elopement, an engagement, a corporate party, a new restaurant menu or something else. But I am especially honored whenever military personnel ask me along, particularly when the groom’s sister is a professional wedding photographer back East. This bride and groom are both active military with multiple combat tours under their belts. If they got a little crazy in Vegas, isn’t that what Vegas is for? And has anybody earned crazy time more than a combat Apache helicopter pilot and combat nurse? These guys were uniformly fun, gracious and wicked high energy. Enjoy these skillfully lighted photos of a rocking Las Vegas Party Bus, a group photo at the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, and a grand finale photo in front of the Bellagio Fountain.

Russian Invasion of Las Vegas – I thought they’d be scarier and not so nice!

April 28, 2014 | By | No Comments

Nikita contacted us while he was still in Moscow. We used Facebook chat to work out the details.

He drove a very hard bargain! but I expected no less from a Volkswagen dealer. Apparently car salesman are just as tough in Russia as they are in the USA.

We met in the early afternoon at their chapel, took two photos before the chapel photographer chased us away. We then spent 2-3 hours having fun on The Strip. We went to Bellagio and made some beautiful photos in their greenery before security chased us away. We then went down to the public fountain area on Las Vegas Blvd and made some beautiful photos as the fountains shot upward. We then walked across the street to Paris where we made some more beautiful photos with the Arc de Triomphe (Vegas Style!) and Eiffel Tower behind us.

Finally we ended our Las Vegas Strip photo tour at The Venetian.

We’ve always expected a Russian invasion, but I never figured they’d be so good looking and so nice! Thank you for gracing our fine city Nikita and Rita and Ivan and Anastasia and the rest, and congratulations on getting married!
