Tammy and Jerry – Las Vegas Neon Museum Engagement Session

September 17th, 2014

We’re really looking forward to Tammy and Jerry’s wedding this weekend and wanted to share their fun engagement photos from the Las Vegas Neon Museum, a.k.a. The Boneyard to us locals. This is going to be a killer wedding with Brit Bertino and crew at the helm, Naakiti Floral on hand for floral wonderment and a host of other fun people. You’ll have to take my word for it for now, but we promise a full post of wedding day fun after it goes down this Saturday. In the meantime, check out these two.

Kate and Cainnan – Las Vegas Alternative Family Portraits

September 5th, 2014

We met up with the sanguine Kate and the perpetually animated Cainnan for a fun mother and son shoot in the swank Platinum Hotel. Kate is the owner and operator of Pretty. Sick. Beauty. in Henderson and we just knew she was going to show up looking like a million bucks, but the show stealer was the dashing young Cainnan who was sporting a dapper tuxedo from the wonderful girls at the much lauded Tuxedo Junction here in Las Vegas. They are without a doubt our go-to place for formal wear and can’t say enough about how great they are. Special thanks to Hava Busso at the Platinum for helping to arrange everything.

Douglas and Sang Familes – Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas

August 25th, 2014

We love being wedding photographers in Las Vegas, but we also do family portraits and we’d been trying to organize a shoot with Juliet and her fearless sister Jennifer and their families for some time. With Juliet being the owner and head honcho of Green Orchid Events wedding and event planning here in Las Vegas, we knew that not just any location would do. With some finagling and coercion we were offered the rare opportunity to photograph inside the newly opened Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq in Las Vegas and the decor didn’t disappoint. I’d had my eye on this room for some time and knew we’d someone cool in there eventually. Special thanks goes to Erin Ward and Her assistant Jerica for being generally awesome people.

Paige and Matt – JW Marriott Wedding

August 21st, 2014

We’ve known Paige for some time and were sad when she moved to D.C., but we were enthralled when she told us that not only was she getting married to Mr. Perfect, but that we’d be photographing her wedding here in Las Vegas and at the stately and gorgeous JW Marriott. They met here in Vegas at the now defunct Hawaiian Tropic, where Matt was a host but don’t let that fool you, the man is an IT wizard. After moving to DC to pursue professional careers, it was certainly wonderful to have them back here in the sun and fun. They love DC (who wouldn’t?), but Vegas will always have a special place in their hearts.

Fantastic up-lighting and stylish marquee letters by the daring Kevin Cordova of LED unplugged, Makeup and hair by the fearless Amelia C and Co, Floral wizardry by none other than Flora Couture and rockin’ beats by Amanda Wallace and T Music Entertainment. Special thanks to the team at JW Marriott for always being awesome!
