Sierra and James came from Southern California to Las Vegas to tie the knot earlier this month.  Sierra chose to have Faithfully Yours Wedding & Events help with coordination of her wedding day.  Having a wedding coordinator is such a great idea.  This allows the bride to enjoy her wedding day stress-free knowing that all the details are being taken care of!  We highly recommend hiring a wedding coordinator for your wedding day, especially if it is a destination wedding!  And, of course we absolutely love working with Faithfully Yours Weddings & Events!

Sierra and James were surrounded by their closest friends and family for their intimate lakeside ceremony.  Lake Las Vegas is such a beautiful location for a wedding.  There are so many pretty spots throughout the resort for portraits.  We had a nice time taking Sierra and James for a little walk around the Monte Lago Village taking some newlywed photos along the way before they joined the party in the Riva di Lago banquet room for the rest of the evening!

To say we had a blast photographing Melissa and Mark’s San Francisco wedding would be an understatement!  We fell in love with these two last summer when we went up to Mount Charleston to shoot their engagement session, so when their big day came earlier this month, we couldn’t be more happy to be there for them.  Melissa and Mark met and had many “dates” via Skype throughout their relationship.  Mark is in the Marines and is stationed in Northern California, while Melissa lives here in Las Vegas.  A destination wedding in San Francisco was the perfect spot for them!  They were married at the Marines Memorial Club in Union Square among their closest friends and family.  Melissa’s cousin-in-law performed the ceremony while their wedding bands were passed along their guests to make a silent prayer or wish for their marriage.  I absolutely love the idea of this ‘ring warming ceremony’, as it involves the guests in the ceremony and makes it very intimate as well.  In true military fashion, Melissa and Mark walked under the saber arch right after the ceremony!

Photographing the bridal party and newlyweds in the streets of San Francisco was a blast!  You can totally tell how much fun we had in the photos!! The rest of the evening was a great time.  From heartfelt toasts to dancing shenanigans, it was a wedding day filled with love and laughter!

M+M:  Huge congrats to you both!  We are so happy to have been a part of your day.  Much love to you xo

Back in February, I launched my children & family website, jessieemeric.com.  I’ve been very excited to now have a separate place to showcase and share these types of sessions and not have it mixed in with our wedding work here at The Emerics.  So far, it’s working out great but today I wanted to share an awesome event I have going on over there with everyone here on this blog too.  Afterall, sharing is caring :)

I’m offering Mini Sessions in June, they’re a great convenient way to get updated photos of your family or little ones in a fun relaxed environment!  Mini sessions are shorter than regular sessions (they’re done in about 30 minutes) and the cost is less than a regular hour session.  Mini sessions can be scheduled at any time of the year with me.  You can check out the info HERE.  Occasionally though, I will set up mini-session weekend events.  I schedule 3-5 back to back sessions each day and the cost for these sessions is even less than the regular mini session fee!  So, if you were on the fence about scheduling a photo session for your family or kiddos, this is really a great deal you don’t want to miss! Mini sessions are also great for couples!  You don’t need to have little ones to schedule your session.  If it’s been awhile since you had photos taken together, maybe this is time to get some updated images.  It’ll be fun, quick, and you can totally make it a date night afterwards ;)


There is a 50% retainer to reserve your date and time slot.  The balance is due the day of the session.  Remember, there are a limited number of slots each day and time slots are on a first come first serve basis, so be sure to contact me asap!  Click HERE to schedule your session today or let me know if you have any questions!  You can also call me at 702-481-2944.

I look forward to hearing from you and photographing your family soon!

Christin and Seth came from Ohio to tie the knot in fabulous Las Vegas!  Christin knew she wanted to embrace the fun party atmosphere Vegas had to offer, but she didn’t want to overdo it!  I think her vibrant color scheme and fun tributes to old Las Vegas throughout her reception decor turned out perfect and really created that look she was going for!  I mean, the groom & groomsmen fedora hats were spot on and the feather centerpieces were too cute!  She also had adorable Hangover Kits to welcome her guests and a wedding weekend timeline to keep everyone on schedule.  Being a huge itinerary planner myself, I just loved that little detail :)

Before we headed into the reception, we met up with Christin and Seth in their rooms at the iconic Flamingo Resort and Casino where they were getting ready.  They chose not to do a first look, but Christin and her dad had a first look right before heading down to the ceremony.  It was such a sweet moment.  After their ceremony, we took a walking tour of the strip as we headed to Joe’s Seafood Steak & Stone Crab Restaurant at the Forum Shops at Caesars.  We had a blast walking down the strip, taking photos along the way, and enjoying the perfect spring weather!

After their fabulous luncheon reception, we went on double decker tour with them and their guests!  It was such a fun idea to get them all together to continue the Vegas fun and we were able to get some more shots in front of the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign and other casinos on the strip.  With so many small details and things to coordinate, Christin chose to have Jessica from Team Harman Events help with the day-of coordination.  It was such a good idea to have Jessica there to make sure everything went smoothly and efficiently from event to event.  I seriously don’t think the day could have gone any better!  I know Christin & Seth were able to have the Vegas wedding they wanted and planned so hard for and their friends and family had an absolute blast!  So many beautiful memories were made that day and we couldn’t be happier to have shared and document their first day day together as Mr. and Mrs.

Christin + Seth: We wish you many more fun-filled days of laughter and love!
