Denise & Scott at The (Verdant) Lake Club at Lake Las Vegas

January 11, 2012 | By | No Comments

Denise and Scott are one of my favorite couples ever. They celebrated their gorgeous wedding with lots of family and friends at the incomparably beautiful The Lake Club @ Lake Las Vegas.

The Lake Club is truly one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding, for so many reasons:

  • Lush, Green, Beautiful
  • Water water everywhere
  • Intimate, human-scale layout, easy to walk everywhere you need to go
  • First rate staff with tremendous experience and elán
  • Private, absolutely no tourists traipsing through your gorgeous wedding
  • Only 30 minutes from The Strip – yet secluded, exclusive, comfortable, quiet

Denise and Scott did a 2 hour pre-wedding shoot where all of the formals, bridals and bride and groom shoots were done.  When couples choose this route, it eliminates  the stress associated with wanting to hurry to get back to your guests. This is the new trend with couples.  One might wonder if the thrill and excitement of “first sight” is gone but, not at all.  Denise and Scott were still filled with emotion  and excitement as she walked down the aisle. I highly recommend doing pre-wedding formals, for the very best portraits, and for dramatically less stress for everyone.

Nicole & Phil Heating Up the Desert – Nelson’s Landing

Nicole & Phil heating up the desert. These guys are so stylin’, so sexy, so in-love. They were willing to do anything for our shoot, and so We had a really good time. Their 1956 BelAir only sexified the shoot even more.

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!
