Kylie & Alex at The Wedding Ranch – Cops Rock!

December 8, 2011 | By | No Comments

Whoever says cops are uptight doesn’t know these guys. They PARTIED! and were such a blast to hang out with and photograph. Thank you so much Kylie & Alex for your patience as I’ve gotten these photos to you during the crazy busy Fall season. I am so happy for you!

Terrence Lighten – Las Vegas Wedding Cinematographer of the Year

December 7, 2011 | By | One Comment

True to his giving spirit, Terrence Ligthen made a behind-the-scenes video of the annual Vegas PUG shootout out at Jean Lake. The Vegas PUG is a monthly gathering of photographers in Las Vegas. We get together to share knowledge, help each other out, and have some fun. Once a year we do a hands on shoot.

This photo is a test shot of my lighting at the lighting demonstration I set up for the shootout. Terrence and his #1 man Steve took a second to pose for me.

Just so happens that Terrence & his company Lighten Films won the coveted “Wedding Cinematographer of the Year” award at last night’s Las Vegas Wedding Awards.

Thanks for modeling gentlemen, and congratulations on the big win!

“Trash The Dress” / “Day After” / “Bridal” Portraits

December 2, 2011 | By | No Comments




“Trash The Dress” / “Day After” / “Bridal” Portraits. Whatever you call them, I think they’re a really good idea.

Often, when a bride or a couple want the very best portraits of themselves in their wedding finery, time is an issue. Finding two hours on the wedding day is difficult, and requires seeing one another before the ceremony. A good solution is a “Day After” portrait session – which is usually not done the day after, but several days or even a week or more after the actual wedding day. The obvious disadvantage is that you have to get all gussied up again. The advantages, though, are really big.

  • You can spend much more time on your wedding day being with family and friends
  • With less to worry about, you will be much less stressed on your wedding day
  • You don’t have to get ready so early
  • You can honor the tradition of not seeing one another before the ceremony, if that is important to you
  • You can be much more creative and flexible, visiting multiple locations and taking advantage of lighting equipment that is impractical on a wedding day. I’m referring to the studio-quality lighting that I used to create these photos out in the Nevada/California desert. I would never bring 3 powerful studio lights and their c-stands and batteries and softboxes etc on a wedding day. On a Day After portrait, I always bring such gear.
