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.

Wow, what a wedding! The style and energy that came together for this momentous event was the culmination of a year of planning, people from all over the US and some of our favorite vendors of all time. With Scheme Events at the helm, you know this was going to be a killer day, but add in the makeup brushes of Your Beauty Call, floral wizardry of Catherine form Layers of Lovely, a ceremony nothing short of amazing by Angie Kelly of Peachy Keen Unions and all of this combined with the smooth sounds of DJ Harry O, brilliant lighting by none other than Kevin Cordova with LED Unplugged, the sweetest things ever by B Sweet Las Vegas and you have one incredible day!

When LA meets Las Vegas, look out. These two met on stage and the result was a stellar wedding with cool people everywhere. With Dan being a music producer and metal band front man, we had high energy and a boy band revival while lovely Brynne stole the show with her infectious smile and ever flowing grace. I could have photographed these two all day long and walked away more energized than when I started. You just couldn’t help getting caught up in the wave that was Brynne and Dan.downtown-grand-las-vegas-wedding-photos

Held at the gorgeous Westin Lake Las Vegas, this was a truly stunning wedding with awesome people all around. Kirsten and Cory are both actors and heavy into Shakespeare, coupled with two perfect pooches and smiles that never seem to stop and you have the recipe for an emotionally charged wedding. The vendor lineup was spectacular, the weather was great and you couldn’t have asked for more.

When the Pacific Northwest meets the Las Vegas desert, you know everyone will have a good time! The Paiute Golf Club Resort is one of our favorites because it’s far enough away from the city to be all desert with stunning views, yet still has that Vegas feel to it. Shana and Craig hail from Portland, Oregon and are not far from where we grew up in the rainy Northwest so we already knew the vibe they had and they just ran with it! We loved spending the day with them and their incredible guests and wish them the very best in future endeavors. Special thanks to Ginny and Brandi at The Paiute for making everything go smoothly, as always
