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.

Judith & Kenneth at the elegant and colorful Wynn

January 4, 2012 | By | No Comments


This fusion wedding blended the western elegance of this stylish couple with colorful and distant Nigerian dress and customs. I do not know whether Judith and Kenneth descend from Nigerian royalty but they certainly carried themselves as if, with the grace, confidence and stature of princess and prince. The Wynn offers such an explosion of color and detail, it is a photographer’s dream. And, even though the bride was not allowed to let me photograph their brief ceremony (a privilege reserved by the ubiquitous and high-volume Cashman Brothers), I was with Judith and Kenneth from early in the morning ’til late at night. We even snuck in an “engagement” session the day after. How they dragged themselves from bed after such a great party I’ll never know. Thanks to Chris Purdum for his usual outstanding 2nd photography – it is always an honor and I feel tremendously fortunate to shoot with Chris.




I LOVE the Party!!!

December 12, 2011 | By | One Comment

I LOVE the Party. If the party is rockin’, I can’t leave before it’s over. The party is joy, it is ecstasy, it is acceptable animalism, it is naughty, it is vigorous, it is up close, sweaty, emotional, sensual, sexy, it is everything we’re not supposed to be the rest of the day, the rest of the night, the rest of our lives. I LOVE the party. More party please.

A good DJ makes a big difference. And this DJ – Mike Fox – got EVERYBODY at Kylie & Alex’s wedding up and dancing and laughing. He’s one of the best DJs I’ve ever worked with.

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!
