Fabulous fun Canadian couple elope to Las Vegas to get married on the Dry Lake Bed Playa then do a photo shoot at the Neon Museum DTLV and the Atomic Liquors

June 28, 2017 | By | No Comments

This fabulous fun Canadian couple eloped to Las Vegas to get married on the Dry Lake Bed Playa. We then did a GREAT photo shoot at the Neon Museum in DTLV and the Atomic Liquors.

These guys came into Vegas smiling and didn’t stop the whole time I was with them. There’s gotta be something in the water or something up there, but Canadians are just the coolest people. We had fun from the minute they pulled up to the dry lake bed in their limo, through the Neon Boneyard and on to DTLV and Atomic Liquors. These guys put in the time and we got great moment after moment. Thanks for letting me document your Vegas elopement guys! You’re gorgeous!

These guys had been planning their wedding for many years, checking out venue after venue. Nothing really clicked. So they eloped to Vegas. I think that’s smart! And we are honored to have been chosen based on the quality of the photos they saw in our portfolio. We had no idea these guys would be so incredibly NICE and graceful and GREAT in front of the camera. Most of the time they were so busy giving each other google eyes and drinking in the gravity of the situation that they didn’t have time to be nervous. To make the occasion extra awesome Lisa’s Dad and stepmom flew in and surprised them when Lisa and Darren stepped into their limo. How cool!

We really could not have asked for a more perfect couple to work with. We can’t wait to finish editing all the photos from their wonderful day.

Las Vegas Playa Desert Dry Lake Bed Wedding – Juliet and Andrew

January 2, 2016 | By | No Comments

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!

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!
