Valley of Fire Maternity Session with Stephanie and Jason

April 23rd, 2014

A day with Stephanie and Jason is always something we look forward to, we did a fun and dirty dirt bike engagement session with them, a zebra striped wedding and now we’re documenting the expectant Stephanie and dad-to-be Jason on their journey to parenthood. I filled Jason in on the lack of sleep and it’s effects on judgement, while having lively culinary discussions with Stephanie. I admit I had no idea that mountain lions roamed so close to here and was regaled with Jason’s harrowing account of being followed by one as he hiked the Nevada back country alone and at a time between day and night that can only be described as the very wee hours. The hair stood on my neck as Jason wove a chilling tale, and I’m glad to say that Jason is a very cool customer as the intrepid feline parted company after thinking better of trying to eat him.

Isn’t Stephanie the epitome of a glowing mom? She has that fascinating excitement that only an expectant mother can have and it’s something that I’m in awe of. With her rampant smile and fun nature, she made the entire valley bright, but most important was how she made Jason light up. So radiant are these two that I never even noticed that the sun had set.

Their little one will be here very, very soon and going old school, they’re waiting until birth to find out if it’s a boy or girl. Congrats you two!

David and Pauline – Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas Wedding

February 28th, 2014

David and Pauline chose to have a wedding at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe because they wanted something a bit different, and different it was! With some passersby as guests, and the occasional low flying aircraft wagging their wings in approval while on approach, it was just them, Reverend Angie of Peachy Keen Unions, the amazing staff at the Paradise HRC and myself. I can’t imagine a more intimate ceremony, and they were a blast to hang out with. Turns out they’re both huge KISS fans, and so we took advantage of the memorabilia. Don’t you just love Pauline’s vintage wedding dress? She purchased it many years ago, knowing that was the dress she wanted, and she was just a perfect angel in it.

Gail and Ryan – Las Vegas Surprise BBQ Wedding

February 24th, 2014

It started as an idea, and became a plan that required secrecy to a degree I haven’t seen since doing classified photos for Northrop Grumman back in 1998. The idea was to have an engagement party and invite all of their friends, then without warning of any kind, they’d show up dressed for a wedding and then get married right there. Nobody, not even their kids, knew. Just us and them and it was a whirlwind day. Kids can be unpredictable, but two of them were already best friends and their surprise was most joyous when they found out that morning that they’d be sisters too.  For a venue, they chose Lucille’s BBQ in The District and I knew that for a special ceremony like this, they needed none other than Pastor Ed Bruning of Casual Elegance Las Vegas. It was a first for Lucille’s, they’d never had a wedding there, and we love surprise weddings! Bonus sighting of past clients Amy and Brahm!
