Happy Friday!  Now that we are pretty much officially done with summer, we’re totally getting excited about cooler weather and all that it brings with it – boots, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice everything, and family portraits!  Once a year I offer fall & winter family sessions and I’m really looking forward to what this season has to offer.   I just love meeting families and children and capturing their special bond and personalities.  If you’re interested in having some beautiful family portraits in a fun natural setting in and around Las vegas, I’d love to hear from you!  Let’s make it happen.

Rebecca and Jason came over from Canada with about 20 or so of their closest friends and family to have their wedding in Vegas!  Like so many who choose Las Vegas as their wedding destination they wanted their wedding to be fun and memorable and I know it totally worked for them!  We met up with Rebecca at her suite at the Aria Hotel.  I knew she was in good hands with Makeup in the 702 getting her all dolled up!  Her friend and sister helped her into her dress before meeting up with her groom for their first look!  I just loved how Jason had a wedding gift for his bride, such a sweet gesture!

After the first look and a few shots around the hotel, we made our way to Viva Las Vegas wedding chapel for the ceremony, then back to the Aria for some shots around the strip!  Then, it was off to dinner with their family and friends to end the night with a lovely toast :)

 

Rebecca + Jason: Thanks for having us photograph your wedding day!  We had a blast and wish you nothing but happiness in your marriage! xo

There are people who come into your life so unexpectedly, so smoothly that you feel like you’ve been friends forever rather than just a few years.  That’s the case for me and Angie.  We met through the wedding industry, as she’s the wedding officiant at Peachy Keen Unions, we and instantly connected!  Soon our networking meetings turned into happy hour with a girlfriend!  As we’ve become friends, she’s also met my sister and they too have become friends.  When Angie announced she was expecting we couldn’t have been happier for her and Wes.  My sister and I love to plan parties and soon we were chatting about how fun it would be to put together Angie’s baby shower!  And, before you knew it, it was on!  With some help from Angie’s mom and aunt, plus her mother-in-law, we got to throw Angie an amazing baby shower!

We know Angie loves burlap and green, so we started thinking of some ideas that would go with those 2 things and soon came up with the garden theme.  We thought it would work really well with Angie’s style and not be too baby cutesy.  We decided to book a parlor suite at The Palazzo Hotel and had the talented Catherine from Layers of Lovely provide the florals.   Jason designed the invitation, as well as all the other paper products, such as the Baby Mad Libs cards to the advice cards.  Between Norma and I we made the appetizers and Norma made the desserts and treats!  She’s also a DIY extraordinaire and put together most of the cute details.  Mackenzie from Taylored Photo Memories, even brought her awesome photo booth!  Everyone really had a great time and  it really was such a blast to plan and put it all together.  Enjoy checking out some of the fun details!

They say good friends are hard to find, but in Lexi and Larry’s case, good friends are in abundance!  There was never a dull moment and Lexi’s bridesmaids were so attentive and supportive.  They tended to her needs and helped her feel relaxed!  Their friends were there to have a good time and witness the union of two people they love dearly.  Their day was a testament to friendship, love, and good times, just what a wedding is supposed to be like!

We started the day with getting ready photos and moved on to Lexi + Larry’s first look.  This is always one of my favorite moments of the wedding day!  After the first look, we got the whole bridal party together for some fun shots of the group!  Unfortunately, the Tropicana Hotel & Casino has an in-house photographer for the ceremony and we were not allowed to photograph inside the chapel, but we did snap a few outside and I just loved the Air Force saber arch as they walked out of the chapel!

Their reception took place inside the Havana Room at the Tropicana and it is such an awesome space for a wedding reception!  I just loved all of Lexi & Larry’s DIY details and how they reflected their style and personalities!
