It's always such a pleasure to hear from past couples and see how they're doing! I was so excited to hear from Lettie last month! We photographed their Las Vegas destination engagement and wedding 6 years ago!! They live in Southern California but were flying into Vegas to celebrate German's birthday and an early anniversary trip and decided it was time for some updated photos. I couldn't agree more! A lot of couples only have photos done for their engagement and wedding and then again when they start a family, they do family photos or just photos of the kids. But, I think it's important for couples to get professional photos together after the wedding day. Not only do they serve as reminders of where you are now in your life and relationship, but the experience of being together without distractions of everyday life and focusing on each other is so good for you! It's an opportunity to flirt (yes, married couples should totally flirt with each other!!!) and rekindle some of that romance! I highly recommend planning an anniversary session to our couples a few years into their marriage and periodically after that for milestone years. I promise you won't regret it. Just check out a few of my favorites from Lettie + German's session. They totally rocked it out in the desert! XO
When was the last time you you and your love when out on a real date? For you married couples, a trip to Home Depot and Chipotle afterwards doesn't count. And for you engaged or dating couples this applies to you too! For us, a real date night means putting in some effort. It means, I'll wear my hair down, do my makeup, and wear a nice outfit. Something I feel good wearing. For Jason, well, he'll wear a button down shirt and we'll call that dressing up ;) We'll try out a new restaurant we've been dying to go to (I keep a list!) we'll share a bottle of wine, and enjoy our time together without distractions. We may catch a show at The Smith Center, go see a movie, or just get some cocktails + dessert after dinner, the point is we took time out of our routine to slow down and be together! What's your ideal date night?
For the months of February and March why not put a fun spin on date night and meet me (Jessie) to get some amazing photos of the two of you together before you head out to enjoy your night! This is is a great way to celebrate an anniversary, celebrate your love, and life together. Having photos together is so important. They become visual reminders of how much you love each other. They're proof that through thick and thin, you are there for each other. These photos help tell part of your story, of where you are right now in life. Whether that's a few or many years into your marriage or recently engaged, let me capture who you are together. Right now. What do you say? Let's do this!
A few fun location ideas are: Floyd Lamb Park, The Strip, Downtown, Arts District, Red Rock area. Locations not available for mini sessions are: Lake Las Vegas, Nelson Ghost Town, Dry Lake Bed. A 50% retainer is required to reserve your date. email@example.com | 702.481.2944
I'm so excited to finally share Jeanette and Johnny's sweet maternity session! They are such a great couple and genuinely nice people, I just know they are going to be terrific parents! Jeanette and Johnny welcomed their beautiful baby girl last month and are starting off the year as new parents! How special is that?!?
2018 will be such an amazing year for them. Sure, there will be sleepless nights, but it will be filled with that much more love and parenting adventures! Here are a few of my favorite from their session among the gorgeous Las Vegas desert mountain backdrop! Enjoy!
