Hands down I think the dry lake bed is my favorite location for the Vegas area, but this was my first shoot there for senior pictures. Avea definitely rocked her shoot... especially when I found out about being in cheer in the past when I asked her to jump for one of the shots. I didn't expect this petite girl to launch off the lake bed like she had springs in her bare feet.
I love how every destination elopement to Las Vegas is different from the next. Ameera and Michael decided to run off to Vegas to elope and have a shoot in their amazing attire the next day around the Strip for a few hours. They want to have a very large wedding and saving up for it in a couple of years, but decided they couldn't wait to officially tie the knot and have some time together. Ameeras blush bridal gown was amazing and made of Faille fabric. I truly had never seen anything like it before.
I can't believe after living in Las Vegas for 10+ years now, I had never made it to the Grand Canyon. This Grand Canyon wedding was an adventure with the bride, groom, and their three young boys in tow. We started off at the M Resort before being shuttled down to Boulder City to catch our helicopter to the Grand Canyon ridge where the company has everything set up and waiting to perform the ceremony overlooking the Colorado River at sunset. It was awesome seeing the Canyon for the first time from this amazing point of view. We headed back into town after landing with a quick photo tour around the Las Vegas Strip and downtown.
Back in the fall, a few of us got together to put together a glamor photography shoot for fun out at the Nelson Ghost town and stop by the dry lake bed on the way back. Love both of these locations! This shoot featured Laura from the popular Las Vegas fashion blog Lollieshopping and make-up artist Tara of Tara Elaine MUA. The photos below also contain some behind the scenes shots and some self portraits I took of myself on the dry lake bed. I'm never in front of the camera!
