Yea, these guys Juliet and Andrew made the desert sizzle with their Las Vegas Playa Desert Dry Lake Bed Wedding, followed by their Las Vegas Neon shoot at the world famous Neon Museum. After talking over skype and some email back and forth between Australia and the US, these guys knew exactly what they wanted. We met them out at the desert playa dry lake bed on the way down to Nelson. They pulled up in their air conditioned limo – nice! We were already set up with our lights, ready to make beautiful studio-lit portraits. But before making gorgeous in the desert we went au natural during their wedding ceremony, officiated by the effervescent and highly recommended Angie Kelly of Peachy Keen Unions. And no, we did not shoot them naked, we just went simple natural light 🙂 during the ceremony.
Afterwards we spent just enough time to make some beautiful magazine-quality portraits of Juliet and Andrew in the stark and striking American desert.
We then made our way to the world famous Neon Museum, aka Neon Boneyard, where we walked the big lot amid some of the most famous neon signs from Las Vegas’ past. We pointed Juliet to the website where she could reserve the Neon Museum for either a 1/2 hour or one hour walking photo tour.
Did you know that you can also get married right in the Neon Museum among the towering classic neon signs? To arrange that, go right here.
We loved working with Juliet and Andrew, documenting their amazing Las Vegas Elopement. Once she saw her photos, Juliet emailed “we absolutely love them!! And please pass on our massive thank yous to Stephen for making us feel so comfortable and relaxed on the day!”
It’s what we do!
