Tori and Ben wanted something fun and different for their wedding day!  With family and friends coming from Texas and Arkansas they decided Las Vegas was the perfect spot for an unforgettable wedding day and they were definitely correct!  They chose The Neon Museum‘s private north gallery for a one-of-a-kind ceremony among the vintage signs!  Tori looked beautiful in her Maggie Sottero gown, hair and makeup done by the talented ladies of Makeup in the 702, and holding a gorgeous bouquet created by Flowers of the Field.   After the ceremony, officiated by Pastor Pete of Elegant Vegas Weddings, we strolled around the gallery to get some epic images of the new Mr. & Mrs. and their bridal party.  Tori + Ben then hopped on to their tour bus and we made our way to downtown’s Container Park where their guests walked around the shops and grabbed some drinks and we took a few more photos before they headed on over to their dinner reception!  All and all, Tori & Ben’s wedding day was a blast!  They were surrounded by their close friends and family and couldn’t have been happier or more in love!

 

T+B: Thank you for having us be a part of your big day! I hope you guys had the best time ever on your Hawaiian honeymoon! xo

Being invited to document the arrival of a new life into the world is one of the greatest privileges I get to have as a photographer.  It is such a humbling experience to be in the presence of something so much greater than you.

This Friday, I helped welcome to the world baby Levi Sparrow Sage.  I met Angie and Wes early that morning and began to document their journey as they became parents to a new baby boy.  They walked into the hospital knowing that when you walk out days later, they’d be holding a new life in your arms.  That in itself is just mind boggling, isn’t it?

Angie had a scheduled C-section and both her and Wes were nervous and a little scared of what to expect but they had each other and having the person you love by your side is all you need to feel comforted and secure.

Baby arrived healthy and strong, weighing in at 7 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 inches long.   Angie was so brave and strong the entire time and never once whined.  Once she held her baby, she looked at him in awe.  So much is in store for this little man.  So many beautiful memories were made that day and yet so many more memories are to come.  There will be moments of pure joy, wonder, and laughter.  There will be sleepless nights and countless diaper changes.  Sometimes there may be tears and exhaustion.  But, most of all there will be love, unconditional love for this precious new baby boy who is so lucky to be born to two amazing people!  Two people who love each other, who will protect him, who will teach him, and who will love him beyond words.

Congratulations Angie & Wes!  Thank you for having me document the birth of your baby boy.  Much love to you both! xo, Jessie

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
