Cili at Bali Hai Las Vegas Wedding | Sam + Tony

cili_bali_hai_destination_wedding_photos-24.jpg

Sam and Tony had their destination wedding at Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai Golf Club in Las Vegas.  One thing I can say about Sam and Tony is that they are truly loved by so many people! They were surrounded by about 140 friends and family who traveled from Southern California to share in their beautiful day! And after having spent some time with them ourselves, we can totally see why! They are so easy going and relaxed and really, just good people.  We were honored to photograph their wedding day!  

Sam and Tony opted for a first look and if you know us, you know we love a good first look! Afterwards, we met up with their bridal party and got some fun group shots before the ceremony.  

After their short and sweet ceremony, we went around the property with Sam + Tony for some gorgeous portraits of the new Mr. & Mrs. before they partied the night away at their super fun reception! 

S+T: I hope your honeymoon was amazing!! It sure did look like a dream on Instagram ;)

Las Vegas Wedding Photographers | Behind the Scenes of 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, it's time for one of my favorite posts of the year! A look at what happens behind the camera! It's always so much fun.  We seriously love what we do!!

Being with people on one of the best days of their lives can't be beat and Jason will make sure you are looking your best too.  He'll show you where to stand, straighten your bow tie, fix your boutonniere, heck, he'll even dust off your shoes! All with a smile, of course! 

But don't worry, Jessie's got your back too ;) That dress will be fluffed, your train will lay perfectly, that stray hair will get back in it's place, and your poses will be on point! 

And when it comes to capturing the people you love in one big photo, she's going to take charge and make sure everyone is looking good for the camera! She'll even stand in for bridesmaids to demonstrate if need be!  

Jason is not only a photographer extraordinaire.  He will fill in for various roles throughout the day.  He stands in for the groom to test the light, he'll be the lighting assistant during bridesmaid photos, and he will even sign as your witness for your marriage certificate.  And if Jessie sees him holding a clutch and still ready to to take the shot, well, she'll be sure to get a shot of him too in all his multitasking glory! 

Having someone to work alongside, especial the person you love is not only fun, but really helpful too.  Like, letting the other one know if a car is coming up behind them when standing in the middle of the road.  

Working as a team is the best, but inevitably, we'll sometimes get in each other's way and in each other's shots! 

Weddings are an absolute blast! I mean, look at Jessie's face at the reception!!

No matter what, though, the best part of our job is always the people we get to serve! We absolutely love our couples and are so thankful we get to do what we love together.  We're already looking forward to an amazing 2018 full of love and adventures! 

Las Vegas Destination Wedding | Dejah + Charles

There's nothing better than a fun,easy-going couple and their bridal party! Dejah and Charles wanted their wedding to be just that - fun, easy-going, and uniquely them! So they traveled to Las Vegas from North Carolina with their bridal party and a handful of amazing friends and had themselves an unforgettable wedding weekend! That's one of the great things about having a destination wedding.  Not only do you get to have an intimate and amazing wedding day but you get to stretch out the festivities into a few days! Think: fun days at the pool, a night out dancing, catching a show, post-wedding day brunch, and so on! 

We met up with them for getting ready images in their room at Caesars Palace.  This is always a great way for everyone to get to know us and get comfy having us around! I absolutely LOVED Dejah's pink and rose gold glitter details! Her Ted Baker pink bow heels were to die for! I seriously wanted to be one of her bridesmaid so I could get one of the adorable Ted Baker clutch she gifted them! I mean, the bow totally got me!  After the girls were ready, we headed over to the  Juno Gardens  where Charles and his groomsmen were already waiting with Jason.  Of course, they did stop along the way for photos and to grab a beer at the bar beforehand ;)

After their ceremony we headed to the dry lake bed a pretty epic time!  We got some gorgeous photos, had a ton of laughs, and there may have even been an impromptu dance party! 

D+C: Thanks for being so much fun and for having us be your wedding photographers! We had a blast with you guys!  Congrats again and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together.  XO
