Las Vegas Wedding Photographer - Henderson Convention Center - Monica & Rob

Cloudy, overcast day?  No problem.  Why?  Because love was in the air... and love defeats things like clouds and grey skies -- it makes the world full of a glowing golden halo called happiness and anticipation.  At least, that's how it seemed like Monica approached the altar, gazing up at Rob (he's a fairly tall guy!) as he fought to keep his composure.  Monica & Rob had the largest bridal party I've photographed to date!  But they were SO much fun and had so much love for the bride and groom -- just like the several hundred guests that largely came from out of town in order to share in this day and support their next step forward.

Short story:  Rob proposed to Monica by gathering a group of their friends and family, then singing -- the last few lines of which were his proposal, when he got down on a knee and offered a ring to her -- and then a singularly sweet gesture of also including Monica's daughter in the proposal, since they are a package deal.  Obviously, she said YES!

Back to the day-of:  tears were shed, laughter sprang up a-plenty, brilliant friends and loved ones helped to raise the celebratory mood, and Monica and Rob tied the knot, jumped the broom, and then tore it up on the dance floor!

Las Vegas Wedding Photographer - WHY Ranch - Britany & Kevin

Once a year, photographers from the ends of the earth flock to Vegas for WPPI, a major wedding & portrait photography conference.  During this time, we get the opportunity to shoot some pretty amazing areas and styled shoot-outs -- one of which, this year, was WHY Ranch, which is a working ranch right in Las Vegas.  Britany & Kevin were our outstanding couple, and although they were married last year, they smooch & walk together, still absolutely in love.  Britany is actually an amazing photographer herself, her husband Kevin a ranger who fights fire!  They were fantastic to photograph (I mean, who doesn't want to photograph another photographer?!) and absolutely the sweetest!

Las Vegas Wedding Photographer - Danielle & Drew

Danielle is from London, Drew is from the States, and yet, here they are together in the Las Vegas desert doing an engagement photography styled shoot with one another.  They actually met, if you can believe it, doing humanitarian work in Nepal.  What?!?  At some point, they figured out they were in love, and Danielle is in Las Vegas on a visa for a few months... and when hers runs out, Drew is leaving Vegas to go on more adventures with her!  Their plan is to travel & start the Camino de Santiago & raise money for #Nepal.  It's great to see such a wonderful, loving couple who put giving back to the world high on their list of priorities and wants.  Looking forward to following their adventures!
