The Box Photo Session: Cardin Holiday Photos

Happy Holidays! Every year, I make it a priority to have a family photo session in November. Not only does this give us the photos that we need for our Christmas cards, but it is also a way for me to guarantee that we will have a nice family photo every year. It’s so amazing to see how much the kids grow from year to year! Last year, my little girl still looked like a baby, but this year she looks so grown up! I love seeing how much they have grown, as well as how their personalities have blossomed throughout the year. Since we have made it a tradition to do our family photos every year, the kids actually look forward to it…AND they help me when we go shopping for their outfits!

Each year, I try to come up with a unique idea; something that WE have never done before. This gives me the variety that I crave, and it keeps it fun for all of us! As a natural light photographer, I tend to plan our family photo sessions outside each year (which I love!). This year, we shook it up a bit with a photo session in a studio! Telling your family that you want to take photos in a “box” sounds like a hard sell, but luckily my husband and kids trust my crazy ideas and tend to go with the flow. My goal with the “box” was to take photos that looked interactive, fun, and that gave us a variety of different poses. Mission accomplished!

Have you seen these vintage letter lights?! They are such a great prop and have been really popular at weddings and events this year. The possibilities are endless, and they offer the perfect way to personalize your event! Anything that offers a unique and personalized detail is amazing in my book!

Dragonridge Las Vegas Wedding Photos: Chelsea & Bill

I am in the middle of editing Chelsea and Bill’s gorgeous wedding at Dragonridge Country club, and I just have to show you a few of my favorite photos. This location is well-known in the Las Vegas area for being one of the best wedding venues; and for it’s stunning views of the entire city!

When Chelsea and Bill contacted me last year, I knew that their wedding day was going to be one to remember. They are both so sweet and easy to talk to, and quite literally…ideal clients. I was honored when they asked me to photograph their wedding, and I excitedly waited all year for their wedding day to arrive.

October in Vegas is the perfect time of year. It’s not too hot and not too cold. It’s the beginning of Fall, and this wedding was decorated with lovely Fall Decor and a orange, brown, and yellow color palette! I must admit that the ceremony location, as well as the golf course for their couple photos, are ideal places for wedding photos! I definitely have some new “all-time favorite photos” from this wedding!

Chelsea and Bill: thank you for being so easy and fun to work with! You two are great!! Your wedding day was beautiful, and I hope you treasure these photos for many years to come.

Kelly and Jeff’s Las Vegas Wedding Photos

Can I just take a moment to tell you how amazing Kelly and Jeff are? Seriously, I love these two. It’s so hard for me to believe that the first time I actually met them in person was ON their wedding day! I felt like I was arriving at a friends wedding; someone who I had known for years. Kelly and Jeff live in Arizona, and they came to Las Vegas for their Destination wedding. I spoke with Kelly on the phone, and through email for several months leading up to their big day. She is such a happy person, and she made a gorgeous bride!

Kelly was with her family at Red Rock Hotel, and that’s where I met her for a few detail photos of her getting ready. I knew when I first walked in that the rest of their wedding day was going to be absolutely perfect! She was calm, happy, and ready to marry the love of her life.

Their wedding ceremony and reception were at Bears Best. It was a VERY windy day…. like 30 miles per hour winds…. but that didn’t stop anyone from having a great time. Kelly and Jeff went with the flow, as they changed their ceremony location at the last minute to underneath the covered pavilion to give everyone a little relief from the wind. After the ceremony, I was still able to do a few photos on the golf course, and even though it was VERY windy, the photos turned out amazing. These two are obviously so in love!

Kelly and Jeff: Congratulations on your marriage! It has been such a pleasure to work with you! Please keep in touch, and let me know next time you’re in Vegas!

Las Vegas Wedding Photographer: Nicole and Chanz

I am so excited to share this wedding with you! Nicole and Chanz were married a few weeks ago at Bear’s Best in Las Vegas, and I must say that their wedding day was beautiful! It was obvious that they took a ton of time to plan every little detail, and it was great to see the happiness on their faces when they saw it all come together for the first time.

Nicole, and her bridesmaids, wore coyboy boots – which was a fun touch! Once the reception started, the shoes came off, and the sandals went on so everyone could dance the night away! All of their guests enjoyed the custom candy bar, and filled their mason jars to take home a sweet treat from the day!

Congratulations on a beautiful wedding! I was thrilled to work with you both!

Great wedding photography! Love bride and groom portraits.

Las Vegas Wedding Photographer: Joan and Blake

It’s been just about a year since I met Joan and Blake for the first time. When we first met to talk about their wedding details and their photography needs, I could tell that they would be such a great couple to work with… and I was right! They are obviously so in love, and they way they smile at each other just makes my heart melt. Last April, I photographed their Engagement Photo Session at Lake Las Vegas, and this April I was honored to photograph their wedding day at Bear’s Best.

I met Joan at Red Rock Hotel, where she was getting ready, and I was in awe of her gorgeous wedding dress! Joan, plus her bridesmaids were all happy and enjoying their time getting ready. It was nice to see the excitement on Joan’s face as she put on her wedding dress and jewelry, and turned into a stunning bride.

The year of wedding planning came together perfectly! At Bear’s Best, their ceremony site and reception room were all decorated beautifully, with a gorgeous purple and white color palette. The entire day was truly amazing, and it was a joy to photograph. Thank you Joan and Blake for trusting me with your memories! You are the sweetest couple and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
