What an amazing night this was with good friends Courtney and Seth. We hauled hundreds of pounds of lights, stands, assistants, projectors, furniture and a security team to the remotest reaches of the Mohave desert for a fun and ambitious shoot with two of our most favorite people. Everything we brought along was incidental at best, as Courtney and Seth just flat outshine any light we could have possibly thought to use.

With LED uplights and Tombstone playing on graffiti riddled concrete, we watched as these two reveled in each other and I was lucky enough to be there with a camera to capture it all. With Courtney’s mysterious brown eyes and fiery¬†personality, and Seth’s extensive knowledge of all things Marvel and DC, plus his cool exterior, you’d never know that these two share a bond so deep that mere words cannot do it justice.

We found out that Seth was starting chemotherapy the very next morning and had trudged without complaint through hill and valley until the wee hours of the morning. Please take a moment to check out their gofundme page and donate to help keep Seth the cool dude he is.

Special thanks to Amelia C and Co. for makeup and hair wizardry, Kevin Cordova of LED Unplugged for lighting up the night, Becca for assisting, and to the security guys of Tek Stratex International for providing security and overwatch.

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.

We spent a sunny evening with Liz and Greg, and they totally rocked it! The always gorgeous Liz works in sales for one of Las Vegas’ top destination management companies or DMCs for those who work with them (Not Run-DMC) and Greg is in marketing for Monster Energy, how fun is that? Having been to the newly opened Container Park, I had been chomping at the bit to do some photos there and we more than had fun. Afterwards we did a little tour of Fremont and then we were fortunate enough to get a little fire monster action at the end. Stay tuned for their upcoming wedding with Scheme Events, you know this one will rock! Can you imagine a more fun couple? Hair and makeup by the ever-talented Your Beauty Call.

Leslie and Nalei have to be two of the nicest people we have ever met. Being high school sweethearts, they’ve been together longer than a lot of people that I know have been married. We’ve known them for some time through a friend, and we were very honored when they asked us to photograph their engagement photos and their upcoming wedding here in Las Vegas. If we didn’t have a little one on the way, we’d follow them to Nalei’s home state of Hawaii for the second ceremony and some beach time. Their wedding here will be something to remember, with catering by none other than local Cajun joint Lola’s and some seriously fun stuff we can’t talk about yet.

Like Leslie and Nalei say, “two brides are better than one”.

We had been Manognya’s Dive instructors about two years ago and immediately hit it off. On the long drive to the training dive site we had heavily involved discussions about Northern vs. Southern Indian food and more importantly, how to make it. South Asian cuisine has long been one of my favorites and I was about to get schooled in the regional differences between North and South India, how could I resist? A melting pot of diversity herself, Manognya hails from Southern India, calls Singapore home and lived between Las Vegas and Iowa and when Varun popped the big question on her, she relocated once again to sunny Las Vegas.

A happier couple you won’t find, and while we spent several days with Manognya being very animated about life underwater, none of her expressions or mannerisms compare to how she lights up when Varun is around. A man who just becomes buoyant when Mano is near, Varun is one of the coolest people you’ll ever meet. Any guy who likes his Lassi salted and his food hotter than the sun has my vote.

We’re very proud to be photographing their upcoming wedding next month, for now see for yourself about how these two just glow in each others presence.
