Las Vegas Desert Elopement

Busra and Tuna traveled all the way from Turkey for an epic trip! Three of their friends made the trip with them and they spent some time visiting and sightseeing in California before stopping in Vegas to tie the knot! Talk about a trip of a lifetime, huh!

Coming from so far away, they left the planning to Las Vegas Desert Elopements and everything turned out beautifully! Judy of Wedding Vows Las Vegas performed a beautiful ceremony and even incorporated some traditional Turkish elements for the couple.

I love how elopements can be so much more than just going to a chapel or court house for a no-frills ceremony, but can actually be a unique and intimate ceremony in a beautiful setting! Just take a look at these photos to see what I mean ;)



Las Vegas Photographers | Behind the Scenes 2018

This year just flew by, huh!?! Well, there is no denying it was a great year filled with many beautiful weddings. We got to meet some amazing couples from all over the country and as far away as Canada, Turkey, and Australia! I say it every year and each year I think I mean it a little bit more when I say how much we love what we do!! Getting to photograph weddings is such a privilege and one we sure are grateful for.

At the end of every year, I like to give you all a look behind the scenes! It’s fun to look at our outtakes and how we photo bomb each other, sometimes on purpose, sometimes not. It’s also a glimpse into what you too can expect if you have us photograph your wedding, elopement, or portrait session and see what goes into making all the pretty photos you see on our feed! We don’t take ourselves too seriously and we want you to see that it’s going to be a fun time, for sure! We want you to see that we’re going to make sure your dress looks perfect, that your flowers are just right, that your family photos are done quickly and efficiently. But most importantly, that we’re there for you and want you to feel comfortable and relaxed with us!

We’ll sometimes get in each other’s shots! It’s inevitable…

Here’s the proof that we’re gonna make sure you look perfect! We’ll fix your dress, give you some direction on poses, and even share a sneak peek of the process with you!

And oh the group shots! I think these are always my favorite behind the scene shots! I mean, look at me, I look like I am about to chase down a ring bearer in one and I can’t tell if Jason is showing a bridal party where to stand or how to line dance!

Jason really has a way with kids too! ; )

We are great stand-ins for checking our lighting!

Sometimes I just like to put my camera down and just walk and talk with our couples, while Jason likes to multi-task and hardly ever puts his camera down!

Who doesn’t love a silly outtake! And for the record, I don’t normally take calls during portraits, but when the bride’s mother calls you pick up. I couldn’t let them get lost looking for the limo ;)

We love to laugh and be silly, but we’re working hard too!

At the end of the day, the connections and friendships we make with our couples and their friends and family is really what makes what we do so worth it!

Red Rock Country Club Wedding | Arvelle + Wayne

Arvelle and Wayne came to Vegas from Canada with their closest friends and family to celebrate their union and the blending of their two families. I especially loved how they involved their children into the ceremony, by having Arvelle’s daughter walk down the aisle ahead of her being walked down by her son. It was such a sweet moment and one I’m sure they will always treasure. Then, during the ceremony, when it was time to exchange rings, Wayne’s two daughters presented them each. Another sweet moment, where I was glad to be behind the camera so no one could see me get teary eyed!!

After the ceremony, we took some time to get newlywed photos of the bride and groom, before they headed off to continue the celebration with their loved ones.
