As we say goodbye to 2016, I like to look back at all the weddings we photographed this year.  We’re just so thankful to the couples who chose us to document their wedding day. We work together with our brides for months leading up to their big day via emails, skype chats, coffee dates, and phone calls so come wedding day, we’re truly excited to be there!

Being present and able to photograph a wedding day is such a gift. Each and every wedding we photograph is proof that love is a powerful thing.  We love to be there for our couples capturing all those must-have shots: the first look, that walk back down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs., the family group shots, the dances, gorgeous portraits at sunset, the beautiful details you worked so hard to put together, and all the fun little moments in between!  Yes, all of those things really do matter.  And not only do they matter now, they’ll matter next year on your wedding anniversary.  They’ll matter a little more each year as time passes and new milestones are reached.  Your wedding photographs are beautiful reminders of how it all began and we couldn’t be more honored to be the ones to capture it.

Moments like the big thumbs up from the groom as his bride is about to walk down the aisle to him, a group of burros photobombing our shot (can we even call that a photobomb?), the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids, the ultimate high-five first look, the groom singing along with their Elvis officiant, and on and on.  These moments, captured through our cameras, tell the complete story of your wedding day. They tell those looking at your wedding photos years from now, that you didn’t just pose for a few portraits on your wedding.  They show that you really lived it.  They show that your wedding day was really full of love and laughter and sweet joy filled moments.

Again, to our couples this year who let us into your wedding day with open arms and trusted us to tell your story, thank you.  You’ve made our hearts full and we couldn’t be more honored to be your wedding photographers. XO – Jessie & Jason

This is absolutely my favorite post of the year! We’ve been doing a behind the scenes blog post at the end of every year sine 2012 and I’ve noticed a few common threads.  There will inevitably be photos of Jason holding purses and bags, while still getting his shots!  There are always tons of photos of us fluffing and making sure our bride’s dress is perfect for the photos. We act silly when we stand-in for each other while we check our settings.  Sometimes we look a little like paparazzi.  And, Jason always manages to get shots of me directing large family and bridal party groups.  I promise I’m not too bossy 😉

Of course, there are always photos of us having fun because the truth is, we love photographing weddings!  We enjoy what we do and we hope it shows while we’re photographing your wedding.  We sincerely want to make your wedding day one of the best days of your life.  Capturing that energy, that love, and pure joy on your wedding day, that is what makes us truly happy!

To all our brides and grooms of 2016: Thank you for choosing us to be your wedding photographers.  Whether you had a big traditional wedding with lots of guests, an intimate elopement with just the two of you, or something in between, your wedding was special to us and we loved being a part of it.  Thanks again! XO Jessie & Jason

Teresa and Juan came from my home state of Texas (yay!) to tie the knot.  They brought along with them 30 of their closest friends and family to celebrate their union at Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai.  This was the perfect venue for them because Juan loves to play golf and wanted a wedding at a golf club and because it is right on the south side of Las Vegas Blvd. it was easy for their friends and family to get there from their hotels on the strip.

Teresa and her 7 bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done in their Delano hotel room by the talented team of  Makeup in the 702.  They then met us at Cili and Teresa used the bridal room there to change into her gorgeous wedding dress!  Jason met Juan and his 6 groomsmen at Cili as well, while they also finished getting ready.

Since the bride and groom chose not to do a first look, we used the time we had before the ceremony to take photos of the bride and her bridesmaids and the groom and his groomsmen.  We then let them have some time to refresh and relax before the ceremony, while we grabbed the ceremony and reception decor details.

After their ceremony on the lawn, we went directly into bride and groom portraits to take advantage of the beautiful sunset and pretty light!  Following their formal portraits, Teresa and Juan were introduced at the reception and the new Mr. & Mrs. Salas.  The groom’s parents arranged for a surprise serenade by a mariachi group!  It was such a sweet gift and it made everyone’s night!  After dinner they moved on to toasts, dances, and cake cutting.  And, we ended the night with a pretty balloon send off for the newlyweds!

When Elvis officiates your wedding at the iconic Neon Museum in Las Vegas, well, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be an epic time! With just 3 of their best friends as witnesses, Ana + Yurdum came all the way from Australia to have an intimate ceremony.  From Yurdum’s blue velour jacket to Ana’s beautiful blue Badgley Mischka heels and adorable tea-length dress, they pulled off their vintage Vegas theme perfectly.

We has such a fun time photographing their ceremony among the signs of the intimate North Gallery and then we headed to the main part of the museum for even more vintage neon signs and gorgeous photos of the newlyweds and their party!
