Downtown Las Vegas Wedding Photography – Elopement of Stacey and Greg

October 25, 2015 | By | No Comments

Historic Atomic Liquors (where folks watched atmospheric atom bomb test explosions from the roof of the bar back in the day), classic bright beautiful neon throughout the East Fremont Street area, public art graffiti all over the place that is updated throughout the year with each new music festival and cultural event, friendly welcoming people who LOVE a Vegas Bride, beautiful clients and best friends flying in from Canada and the Florida Panhandle, smiling, laughing, kissing, hugging, skipping. That’s what it’s like on a Las Vegas Wedding Photographers elopement tour of downtown Las Vegas with Steven Joseph Photography. We always have fun. You always look great. And everyone is blown away by your experience and the story we tell through the gorgeous magazine-quality photos documenting your incredibly special moment. I love everything about Las Vegas Elopement photography tours in DTLV downtown Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Event Photography – Monday’s Dark First Year Anniversary

October 6, 2015 | By | No Comments

Do you know about this wonderful Las Vegas charity – Monday’s Dark? We loved doing Las Vegas Event Photography for their First Anniversary show, including coverage of their amazing stage performances, and production of their on-location step and repeat. With so many performers, I’ve never shot a step and repeat with so many camera-ready camera-friendly people.
To learn more about Monday’s Dark, what they do and how you can help them raise money for worthy charities each month, check here.

Dry Lake Bed and Lake Las Vegas – Ha and Louie Elope to Las Vegas

August 1, 2015 | By | No Comments

All the way from Vietnam, Ha and Louie eloped to Las Vegas to get married. Smartly, they chose two locations that are quintessentially Vegas and desert American West – the Dry Lake Bed, and Lake Las Vegas, home to The Westin, Ravella, The Lake Club and Reflection Bay at Lake Las Vegas.
We captured their sparkling new love for each other in the bright vast dry lake bed desert and among the green trees and elegance of Lake Las Vegas. It was truly a pleasure to meet and to work with these two beautiful folks. Congratulations Luong and Ha!

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.

Vegas Elopement LAUNCHED down in the East Fremont DTLV area

May 11, 2015 | By | No Comments

When Aimee and Ingo contacted us saying the LOVE our photography and really felt a connection by reading my bio, we were very flattered and happy. When they said “let’s do the ‘umbrella flying away’ shot” I’m all “OK! Let’s!” and so we did. These guys rented a beautiful red Jaguar, they brought all kinds of smoochin’ and hugging and WE JUST GOT MARRIED vibes to the shoot. And all of that combined with their awesome easy going very fun personalities makes my job all the more easy. After meeting them in the downtown Las Vegas area by one of the many street murals, we just zipped around fairly randomly making pretty. While DTLV can be a little raunchy for some, nothing beats the easy access, the photography-friendly attitude, and the endless textures and colors and background settings. Elopement shoots in the Downtown Las Vegas East Fremont area are truly one of my very favorite kinds of shoots. And with clients as animated and happy and easy going as Aimee and Ingo, I gotta pinch myself to see if this is really my job? Thank you Ingo and Aimee for a great shoot in downtown vegas!

Vegas Engagement Session at Town Square and In-Studio

May 9, 2015 | By | No Comments

Can you tell that this Vegas Engagement photo session at Town Square (and in-studio) just ROCKED? Devin and Lee are getting married this summer at The Smith Center in Las Vegas, and they wanted to get some gorgeous engagement portraits for announcements, and to line the video display screens at The Smith Center. How cool is that gonna be as guests file from the outdoor atrium into the lobby of The Smith Center walking past this beautiful engagement photo session.

When a couple looks this good, is having this much fun, is this comfortable with one another, and loves the camera this much, photographers enter a golden zone, where every shot is web-worthy, every click is better than the one before, where awesome just can’t help itself from inhabiting every pixel.
