It's Senior picture time! I love working with seniors... they'll climb on whatever rock you want and can be way more adventurous for photos. Krista has lived in Las Vegas her whole life and wanted something that showed the part of Las Vegas that she loved: the desert rocks by Red Rock Canyon, the desert landscape, and a place where she would go hiking with her family on the weekends as she grew up. Just on the other side of the entrance to Red Rock Canyon is the tucked away treasure of Calico Basin.

Last month I had the pleasure of shooting Samantha and Dan's wedding that was held inside of Vanity Nightclub at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas. The ceremony was held in the lobby right outside of the club and the festivities moved inside of the club as soon as the nuptials were over. There were a lot of areas of the club that were great to shoot in... like the front entry way hall that some of the shots took place in. I wanted to take that wall home or have panels of it to use in the future! It was a great look.

Right before Thanksgiving I got an email from Sarah telling me about her Marine coming home for the holidays and had a limited time frame before he had to go back. Lucky for both of us, the scheduling worked perfectly! We decided on Floyd Lamb State Park in northern Las Vegas valley... but what I wasn't prepared for were the awesome golden trees! It really didn't seem like Vegas there.. a little oasis.

A few weeks before their run-away Vegas wedding, Alex explained to me their elopement here at a drive-thru chapel and wanted to spend the rest of the time with their  bride and groom photo shoot. It doesn't get any more Vegas than that!! With a limo escorting us around all day from the Wynn ... to The Little White Chapel drive-thru window ... to our shoot out in Nelson Ghost town, we had one fun day together. This was a true elopement of just the couple, the limo driver, and me (even being the signed witness!)
