Las Vegas Wedding at Mandalay Bay and Foundation Room

October 12, 2015 | By | No Comments

These guys remind me of James Bond and his hottest secret agent honey. They got ready at Mandalay Bay, got married at St Francis Assisi, and their reception was at The Foundation Room. Somehow, the groom Jarrod got full walking around access on the grounds of Mandalay Bay for family formal portraits. Anyone who is familiar with how seriously the big hotels guard their exclusive in-house photography contracts realize how significant and surprising it is that Jarrod got full access for an outside photographer. Did I say he reminds me of James Bond?

These guys are gorj. They were overflowing with emotion, creating once-in-a-lifetime-moments a mile a minute. And we were extremely honored to be invited to document their day.

Candice and Jamal get married in Las Vegas – The Wynn, Mandalay Bay

Candice and Jamal got married at the inside chapel at The Wynn – where outside photographers are not allowed. So we met them before their ceremony, inside their suite, for some informal and formal portraits. Even though we shot both families in the same room we managed to keep Jamal from seeing Candice before the ceremony. Both families were so beautiful and fun, and it didn’t take much for me to get them comfortable in front of the camera.

After their brief ceremony we met them again on the party bus and we stayed with them for the rest of the night. As is almost always the case, most of the photos we take are camera-unaware photojournalistic, where our clients don’t even notice we’re there.

In the review Jamal left us on WeddingWire he said “The only regret I have for that day is not using Steven Joseph for EVERYTHING! Unfortunately, we married at a hotel on the strip that required us to use the hotel photographer for our wedding. When we received the pictures from the wedding (hotel photographer), they were ok. However, when we looked at the post-wedding and reception photos (Steven Joseph), we were blown away!! They were AWESOME!…” [To see the rest of their review go here.]

I sometimes forget how much I love shooting weddings, until I look at these guys photos, from the starting family portraits in their suite at The Wynn, to the rockin’ rip roarin’ party they had at Border Grill at Mandalay Bay.

Sometimes I forget how much I love photographing weddings, especially the party, and then I see photos like this. Whooooot!

If James Bond got Married Again ….

February 4, 2013 | By | 6 Comments

If James Bond got married again, I think it’d look pretty much like this. His stunningly beautiful bride draped in her elegant wedding gown. He – the dashing groom in his classically cut tuxedo – would probably get prepped at the elegant and luxurious Mandalay Bay, then segue to a dignified ceremony at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. With his charm and confidence he’d get us into places not often opened up to wedding couples with photographers in tow – like the officially closed private beach bungalow area at Mandalay Bay. And at the end of the night we’d all end up on top of the world – 60 floors up – in the richly sophisticated Foundation Room inside of Mandalay Bay, with the best views of the Las Vegas Strip in the whole world.
