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.

Neon Museum Elopement and DTLV Photo Session with Chant’e and Renard

September 2, 2015 | By | No Comments

Oh MAN these guys were a BLAST, and so in love, having so much fun! With clients this relaxed and happy and CAMERA-READY, it doesn’t get any easier to photograph nor more fun than this.

From the moment my two assistants and I met these guys at the Neon Boneyard they were all smiles, all hugs, all fun. And we had so much fun that the time just flew.

Like a lot of guys, Renard wasn’t crazy about spending an hour and a half with an unknown photographer, didn’t think it would be necessary, probably thought it would be boring. But his beautiful bride-to-be Chant’e saw something in my photography that made her have to have it. So Renard went along. But by the end (we went a little over, just ‘cuz we were making so much pretty and having so much fun) we all wondered where the time had gone. I coulda shot for a couple more hours.

Quality Las Vegas Party Bus Photos – Is It Possible?

August 14, 2015 | By | No Comments

Have you heard that you can’t get quality party bus photos because the bus is moving and the light is so low? I have – from other photographers. But as you can see in the photos below and in the words of my clients, that just ain’t so.

“Steven did an amazing job for our Las Vegas wedding reception!! All of the photos were taken in low lighting, many on a moving party bus, and they came out incredible!!! Not many photographers would be up to the challenge, but Steven Joseph photography delivered. I’m grateful he was able to capture the joy of our special occasion, would highly recommend!”

These guys had been deployed in Afghanistan as a nurse and an Apache helicopter pilot, respectively, and they and their friends had a lot of steam to blow off. They *earned* the right to get a little crazy and to go all out Vegas. And they did.

After getting married at their hotel chapel (into which outside photographers are not allowed) I met these guys at The Aria. We climbed aboard two party busses. I put up a couple of small speedlites, and away we rode.

We hit the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, we went to DTLV downtown Las Vegas Fremont Street Experience and we ended up at the Bellagio. We just missed the fountain show, so I stayed around for an extra half hour to catch the fountain show and to wrap it up with a final group photo in front of the famous Bellagio fountain, in a crowd of hundreds. After the final shot these guys walked across the street to continue the party at one of the clubs on The Strip.

Looking for excellent photography to record your raucous Las Vegas Party Bus experience? Give us a call. We’ll take care of the photography so you can focus on cutting loose.

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!

I’ve Seen Las Vegas Downtown Public Art DANCE

July 15, 2015 | By | No Comments

DTLV, Downtown Las Vegas, Wall Art, Public Art, Las Vegas Elopement Photography, Las Vegas Wedding PhotographyAshley and Paul got married at the awesome Neon Museum, AKA The Neon Boneyard in downtown Las Vegas. When they wanted some cool after-ceremony photos, naturally we had to scoot downtown to get some of the electric public Wall Art throughout DTLV.

These guys are so electric, they were so in love, that it’s as though walls just lit up and danced with color as they walked by. Did they? They did in my eyes.

To see if walls dance for you, all you gotta do is ask me to photograph your Las Vegas elopement or LV engagement or Las Vegas Wedding.

My reviews from past clients make me blush, they’re so good. Past clients talk about how much FUN we have, how great my lighting is, how much energy I have, how beautiful their photos are, and how well my wife Chris takes care of them from their first phone call until their gorgeous handcrafted album is delivered to their home.

Wanna see walls dance with color? Give us a call or txt 🙂  702-274-4447 or drop us a line at [email protected]

 

Can you take professional photos inside the top hotels on The Las Vegas Strip? Yes. Maybe. Probably Not. How Badly Do You Want It?

July 13, 2015 | By | One Comment

Las Vegas hotels on The Strip (The Wynn, Encore, The Bellagio, The Venetian, Palazzo, Mandalay Bay, The Cosmopolitan, The Flamingo, Paris Las Vegas, New York New York, The Stratosphere, Planet Hollywood, The MGM, City Center, Aria, etc.) have a well-earned reputation for being very unfriendly to outside professional photography. Very.

Can you take professional photos inside of Las Vegas Strip hotels and casinos?Any professional photographer in Vegas who has tried to take their bride & groom or other clients into a Strip hotel while using off-camera professional lighting can tell you about the Vegas Shuffle, where security approaches within a minute to throw you out. While being tossed is a little embarrassing and inconvenient, it could be much worse.

I understand their position completely. They are private businesses each with extraordinary investment in interior design that they’d like to control, and they have in-house photography franchises that have first dibs on all professional photography within the hotel.

So how did I arrange for this gorgeous couple to get professionally lit professional photography inside The Wynn?

I didn’t.

The groom did.

Professional Photography in The  WynnJoseph – who bought out the back of one of The Wynn’s restaurants for their reception – made it happen. While I don’t know all the details, I do know that he made repeated attempts over a period of weeks, made many many calls, was told by people without authority that he had approval when in fact he did not have actual permission until about one hour before we took these photos.
