Las Vegas Wedding Photography

You realize that what is priceless tomorrow is expensive today. You’re doing it old skool – five hours or more. And you want full coverage from beginning to end. You want amazing family portraits, and breathtaking in-the-moment photojournalism that will make you laugh and cry every time you see them for the rest of your life. You want photography that becomes more valuable with every passing day.

Las Vegas Elopement Spring Mountain Ranch

April 18, 2013 | By | One Comment

While we love shooting at Spring Mountain Ranch Nevada State Park for its unmatched natural beauty, we cannot at this time recommend that anybody get married there because of the serious personnel problems they are currently experiencing. Many photographers have reported being harassed, intimidated, even shaken down by some of the Rangers working at Spring Mountain Ranch (SMR) while working with couples, families, and even full wedding parties. Shocking and hard to believe, but true. The photography community is trying to work with the management of the Nevada State Park system to get some relief, and to transform SMR into the kind of vibrant, busy, revenue-generating venue we know it can become, one that welcomes professional photography, and that conducts weddings with professionalism and respect.

Las Vegas Elopement Photography – Elise & Jeremy Climb to a Higher Level. The Dry Lake Bed & Nelson Ghost Town

March 24, 2013 | By | No Comments

These guys are so freaking CUTE and meant-for-each-other. Elise and Jeremy – true-to-the-core Old Skool rock climbers (we’re talking 15 pitch-type climbers 0_o) – climbed to new heights last week in their Las Vegas elopement. After tying the knot (ahem) in a simple civil ceremony, we met up at the dry lake bed about 45 minutes outside of Vegas for some mega gorgeous magazine-style lighted portraits. We then traversed southeast to the photographically fabulous and friendly Nelson Ghost Town (aka Eldorado Canyon Mine Tours, Nelson’s Landing, and “that place where they blew up the airplane for that Elvis movie”)

One of the reasons your photos look so awesome is because we bring studio lighting with us on-site. You *pop* from the background. And we take care of editing our lights out of your beautiful photos.

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.

Answer: Yes. Question: Does skillful off-camera lighting make a difference?

January 26, 2013 | By | No Comments

Does skillful use of off-camera lighting matter in photography? Sometimes, when the available light is great, it’s not much of a factor at all. But other times, off-camera lighting makes the shot.

When looking at my bridal party, this is what I see.

Available Light Photography Las Vegas Wedding PhotographersThis is what normal people see.This is what you and your venue look like with off-camera lighting.This is what you and your venue look like in available light.Normal.Lighted.

We love available light photography and use it all the time, when the available light is good. But often the light professional photographers can make is better.
