Las Vegas Reflection Bay Golf Club Wedding of Chrissy and Mark

June 10, 2017 | By | No Comments

Why do I show so many photos? I show a lot of photos so that my next bride & groom see the quality & experience they can expect throughout their whole day, and not just a few hero shots.

Chrissy and Mark are such a cool couple, bringing together two excellent families out at the spectacular Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas.

This is the first time I’ve done the boat tour of the lake – it’s a party!

This venue is highly recommended as it has everything a successful wedding needs. It is large enough for a typical wedding gathering, yet still intimate. It is green, and has a beach! and a beautiful lake! The staff is first rate, attentive, professional, and great communicators.

And the reception area is just right, too, with high white ceilings and white walls and large glass panels and doors opening up to one of the most spectacular vistas in Las Vegas, palm trees and green lawns and blue water.

And of course it has Las Vegas’ beautiful weather.

Another beautiful wedding at the DragonRidge Country Club in Henderson. Tara saw it and knew immediately that this was the place she was going to marry her love. Working with Catering Sales Manager Beth and Allie was effortless as they are so easy going and nice. Tara couldn’t have been happier nor looked more beautiful. What a great day!

A Las Vegas Strip Wedding at Treasure Island and The Ritz Venue

April 3, 2017 | By | No Comments

This is my long-winded post about A Las Vegas Strip Wedding at Treasure Island and The Ritz Venue with the very special Elizabeth and Christopher.

OMG so much to say about this amazing wedding! But it’s 5:30am and I really should be gettin’ to bed, but I have to take care to back up my bride’s images first ….

….so as I was sayin’… this wedding was kind of off the hook, in part because our beautiful brilliant bride married a *DJ* who knows lots of other DJs, and who got every VIP favor one could ever hope for at the incredibly accommodating Treasure Island, where our DJ Groom Christoper spins discs and spreads good cheer and happiness. Our beautiful brilliant PhD bride, no doubt, also attended to the million lovely details this couple shared with their many guests.

Put aside the dresses and the shoes and the florals – all so elegant and tasteful – and jump right to the perfect reception at The Ritz. There were maps and travel cases representing their globe trotting. The travel theme was carried throughout the reception hall, in details like the greenscreen OS Photo booths background, and the travel-themed table tents at each table.

The energy and thumping dancing partying pulse of this ceremony never let up right up to the last second. Did I mention that the groom is a DJ and he invited a bunch of his DJ friends who kept things pumping all reception long? The music was truly great and the dance floor was usually packed.

So many details! So well thought out! These guys invited a caricature sketch artist, there was an open bar, at the beginning of the reception there was a live musician, there was a delicious buffet, an ice sculpture, an area with comfortably elegant lounges and sofas, a bone-white tree that was more art than plant, and on it went.

And I’ve barely mentioned how much TIME they gave me to make great portraits with them! A photographer’s dream!! Elizabeth was a photographer for many years before she got smart and decided that having a regular income as a pharmacist might be neat. So, as much as almost any client I’ve ever had, these guys really appreciated the importance of photography and they gave me at least 90 minutes between the ceremony and reception, a luxury I am so grateful for.

They also had MAD ACCESS to one of the major casinos on The Strip. Of about 400 weddings I’ve shot I’ve never had access that comes close to the VIP treatment Christopher arranged for us. Rather than the usual experience of getting chased out of a Strip casino within moments of breaking out professional lighting gear, we were escorted by very large security guys wherever we went. And we went wherever we wanted to went. Actually we had wented everywhere a week before in our walk-through, so our wenting was well planned. And escorted by very large men with wound cords connected to their ears. Like I said, a photographer’s dream.

Thank you Elizabeth and Chris – for entrusting me with such an important event in your lives, and for the VIP access.

Las Vegas Wedding at The Revere Golf Club – Melissa and Tony

February 3, 2017 | By | No Comments

Two of the greatest people brought their families together in this ideal location in the hills overlooking Las Vegas, the premiere golf resort of Revere in Henderson. This was one of the most spiritual weddings I have ever had the privilege to document, with two of the finest people I’ve met. Congratulations to Melissa and Tony!

Las Vegas Wedding of Jennifer and Andrew at Wedgewood Stallion Mt

January 27, 2017 | By | No Comments

Jennifer and Andrew came in from Seattle – seemingly bringing much of Amazon’s staff with them – to pledge their forever commitment to each other and to join their soulful supportive families together. Wedgewood is surprisingly green for the Mojave Desert, near great western mountains, and it’s very accustomed to hosting beautiful weddings. If you’re looking to bring everyone to Vegas for the convenience, and you want a place that’s off The Strip and not as zany as The Strip, a place that’s green and cool and calm, then Wedgewood is an excellent choice.
