Hailing all the way from Australia, Jasmine and Peter wanted to have a very Las Vegas elopement by starting with an Elvis wedding at the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel (Peter was even dressed up as Elvis!), and then spending the rest of their time bouncing around Vegas at popular landmarks on the Strip.
Since the trip to Jessics and Artur’s wedding was my first trip EVER to NYC, I had to squeeze some sightseeing in and made it a personal effort to capture what I wanted on film. I brought tons of rolls but unfortunately only had a little time to explore the city and only shot 3 rolls. I have mostly expired (and very expired) film, but I just recently just started buying more new film so I can get the exposures and colors I want. Expired film can be a little tricky. Black and white film can become a little flat (not much contrast) while color film can look more retro (cool!) but not expose exactly right (boo!).
This NYC wedding was such a great trip and experience! I really don’t know where to begin… I mean, I had never even visited the Big Apple before! Yes, I know that’s crazy since I have been lots of places, but this was the first time I have left the doors of the JFK Airport or Newark Airport.
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.
