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.

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.

I absolutely love being a photographer in Las Vegas, but rarely do I have a camera in hand when the sunset looks like a fire is consuming the sky. We had just come back from a shoot that we cancelled because of the weather, and I about drove off the road ( I didn’t though) when the sky first turned yellow and then orange and finally deep orange and red.

I absolutely love living here. No adjustments on this, it’s straight out of the camera (SOOC)

With Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove (or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) as inspiration, we headed out to the Jean dry lake bed for a very unique newborn photo. Slim Pickens would no doubt approve.
