Happy Friday, peeps! We went right from busy wedding season straight to family portrait season.  As you know, I usually only offer family sessions once a year and that time is right now!

If you haven’t had family photos in a while or if you’r on the fence about whether to get them done at all, here’s a little incentive: I’m currently offering $50 off both of my family portrait packages until the end of the year! All sessions are done on-location and are a lot different (in a great way!) from most in-studio portrait sessions. My goal is to capture your family having fun together, while looking your best! I’ll capture candid fun moments, but don’t worry, I also do some nice modern posed shots too! These are done in a relaxed outdoor location with beautiful natural lighting.
Dates are limited, so contact me asap and we can set up your family session! We’ll also discuss location choices, outfit ideas, and tips for making the best of our time together :) It’ll be fun. I promise! XO -Jessie

A bride with sparkly Keds by Kate Spade is always my kind of bride!  Add to that a witty and laid back personality plus an equally fun groom and we are a just meant to be.  Seriously, we have the best couples.  Kim and Daniel chose to have a destination wedding in Vegas, one of Kim’s favorite cities.  She’s been coming to Vegas since she was a little girl, so it just made sense to have their wedding weekend here.

I met up with Kim who was just finishing getting ready in her hotel room.  We then met up with Jason and Daniel who was anxious to see his bride-to-be.  It was the best first look of 2016!! After their first look we made our way to the ceremony site.  They chose to have their ceremony at the Venus Garden at Caesars Palace.  Although most hotel-casinos on the strip only allow their in-house photographers to photograph their ceremonies, Caesars Palace does offer an opportunity to have couples bring in their preferred photographers instead, for a fee of course.  Kim and Daniel knew they wanted our photography style throughout their entire wedding day, plus we got to know each other via emails, phone, and skype chats so come wedding day, we were like old friends and not strangers photographing one of the most important days of their lives.

After their ceremony, we hopped into a limo with the new Mr. & Mrs. and toured a few famous landmarks around the Las Vegas strip before making our way back to the Forum Shops at Caesars for their reception dinner atJoe’s Seafood, Prime Steak, and Stone Crab.  They had about 50 or so of their friends from Indiana come along and it was such a fun time for everyone!

We connected with Las Vegas locals, Monica + Rene, while drinking coffee, chatting over our mutual love of traveling and spending time with our families.  These two are such a super sweet and easy going couple, we just knew we’d have a great time photographing their Red Rock Country Club wedding.  They told us how they were planning to have a small and intimate wedding, with their family and friends.  They wanted it to be a laid back and relaxed and to focus on their friends and family enjoying a nice evening together. We couldn’t wait for their day!

When their wedding day came, it was everything they had planned it to be: intimate, relaxed, and full of friends, family, and lots of love.  Monica and Rene chose to have a private first look before their ceremony and it was just what they needed to help ease their nerves.  There is just something about seeing your love before walking down the aisle and knowing that everything is going as it should.  The weather was truly ideal for their outdoor ceremony on the lawn.  We had a great time photographing them around Red Rock Country Club’s beautiful property before going inside for the reception.  They started out with a special dance, where they invited their guests to join them in.  The rest of the reception was spent mingling, dancing, and enjoying the evening.  It couldn’t have been more perfect for them and we’re so happy we got to be a part of it.

I have one word for this wedding: HAPPY!  The entire day was so full of love, happiness, and lots of laughter. Amelia and Matt, and their entire wedding party were so fun to be around.  They chose to have a Las Vegas destination wedding because they wanted a relaxed and fun-filled day with their friends and family.  And they achieved just that.  Fun-filled, relaxed, and joy filled, totally our kind of day!

I met up with Amelia and her crew getting ready in their suite at The Mirage, while Amelia C. and Co. worked their beauty magic.  Once they were done with hair and makeup, it was time to get dressed and go down for the first look!  Meanwhile, Jason was also hanging out with Matt and the guys while they finished getting ready.  Amelia and Matt had a super sweet first look and at that moment you could just feel how in love these two are with each other.  It was the sweetest!  We then met up with the rest of the bridal party and made our way to Caesars Palace for the ceremony.  We took a quick detour before heading to one of our favorite reception venues on the strip, Joe’s Seafood Prime Steak, and Stone Crab, to get some evening shots of the newlyweds with the Vegas lights behind them.  Once at the reception, they were greeted by their closest friends and family members all ready to have fun!  It was truly an amazingly happy day!

A+M: Congrats and thanks for having us share in your day! We wish you a lifetime of happy 😉
