Red Rock Canyon Intimate Wedding | Kali + Tyler

Kali + Tyler wanted to have a small wedding, just them and their family, celebrating love and their new life together as Mr. & Mrs. They booked through Desert Elopement Las Vegas to handle all the details of their wedding day ceremony. Plus, in order to have a ceremony or portraits at Red Rock Canyon, you must have a permit, so going with Desert Elopements Las Vegas, makes it super easy since they are one of the few companies in town who have a yearly permit with the park. This way, Kali + Tyler focused on enjoying their trip to Vegas, knowing it was all being taken care of. It was stress-free and beautifully personalized and intimate. Just how they wanted it to be.

Kali + Tyler absolutely loved the desert and mountains that Red Rock Canyon offers! It was a big difference from the scenery in their home state of Illinois and it really gave them some unique photos to take back home to share with the rest of their family and friends!

Red Rock Country Club Wedding | Denise + Scott

So happy to share this sweet wedding today on the blog! Denise and Scott were married at Red Rock Country Club, one of our favorite venues in Las Vegas! Due to some rain showers and wind earlier in the day, they opted for an indoor ceremony, but we were lucky to be able to sneak outside for a few minutes to do bride and groom portraits before the rain came down again that day! Crazy, but yes, we do have a few rainy days in Las Vegas and this year the weather from winter to spring was especially wet and cold longer than usual. We’re back to normal now with temps in the upper 90s in June, though!

Denise and Scott chose to have a small wedding and reception with their close lifelong friends and family members. It was the perfect reunion and celebration of love for these two lovebirds!

Las Vegas Elopement | Jacqueline + Miro

I swear Jacqueline + Miro could be models! I mean, just look how gorgeous they are! Not only that but, they’re also two of the nicest and relaxed people ever! We had so much fun with them! They came from Australia earlier this year to be married in Las Vegas. They booked with one of the many chapels in Vegas and unfortunately, they do not allow couples to use their own photographers for the ceremony. If you’re looking to book your ceremony with any of the chapels or casinos, I would highly recommend you confirm their photography policy prior to booking. I am also always available to make recommendations on venues who do not have such strict photo policies ; )

Since we couldn’t photograph the ceremony, they decided to go outside the box, literally, and get away from the city for their wedding portraits! We met Jacqueline and Miro at Nelson, which is about a 45 minute drive from the strip and got some fun photos there among their old cars, barns, and cactus! It’s really a neat place for phots! After our time there, we drove to the dry lake bed, which is another favorite spot of ours. This is close by, so the two locations work really well together. We got there just as the sun was setting behind the mountains and gave us the best lighting! Also, really loved how we ended the session with a sweet first dance in the middle of the desert! Totally epic and totally them. Just how they wanted it to be!
