It’s time to get naked. Once and for all. This is volume 001, of many to come. Get behind the scenes and see what it’s like to get shot by me. Real clients, real stories.

Enjoy!

Shiran - makeup artist Las Vegas

If you want to be the best, you have to surround yourself with the best…

And that’s exactly what I do. This is my beautiful and talented hair and makeup artist, Shiran. I shot her last year for her birthday and I la-la-la-love her images. Almost as much as I love her. We are silly when we’re together, and we make the best damn team you’ve ever seen. When you decide it’s time for you to get a little naked, you’ll be really glad you have two girls in the room that make you feel amazing and incredibly comfortable. At least, that’s what people keep telling us! :) I guess you’ll just have to book a boudoir photo shoot and see for yourself! But seriously, we do like to have a good time, and we push each other to get better and better at what we do. And I am forever grateful for that. Love you!!

I wrote about these two a couple of weeks ago, and I just can’t tell you how much fun we had on their wedding day. They’ve been together forever and the ease of their love just radiates out of their pores. They are comfortable and passionate and full of life, together. And that makes them ‘tigertastic’ ;) Without further ado, here are their shots from the Neon Museum and Red Rock Canyon. Happy Sunday!

He actually whispered something sweet to her upon being asked to do so. Usually I just get a giggle, but these two delivered. :)

Really, though. Y’all can’t wipe that look off of your faces. That’s a good thing!

Hope you guys are enjoying the first few months of marriage – I bet you still laugh just like this, every day. Love from Vegas!!

We shot on location at Luxor yesterday – and let me tell you, we had a rockin’ good time and then some. Here’s a quick peek at our behind the scenes shots from last night. Oh, and Happy Sexy Saturday. There…I said it…

Okay, so you guys remember these two from their fabulous costumes last month, right? Well, this is what they look like before they get all crazy. So, let’s get serious for a bit, shall we? I love the images that we created that day – these two were so easy to photograph – open to the process and trusting in me to make everything pretty. And I did! You don’t have to be a professional to get great shots – yuo just have to be open to letting me guide you thru our time together and I will allow those moments to happen organically. Hippie talk aside, just be ready to have fun – that’s it! Now, on to the seriousness…

One of my faves from the session – adore the frame and the intensity between them :)

Canyon Gate Wedding Photographer Las Vegas

These two hotties are Derek and Nancy – married on Valentine’s Day at Canyon Gate. And just you look at this dreamy little piece we have here. I’m not giving away all my secrets, but this was done completely in camera, y’all. For reals. I’m in looooooooovvvveeeeee with some of my new tricks. That is all.

When I showed this to Nancy on the back of my camera, she could hardly believe it. And that, my friends, is one hell of a way to shoot your clients. So that they don’t even believe it could actually be so awesome. ;) 5 cool points for me. Yay! Have an amazing Sunday!!

Wedding Photographer Las Vegas - Neon Museum

Meet Mr. And Mrs. Tiger. And their adorable way of showing off their shoes. I asked her to lift her dress so I could see her shoes, and they did it together. That’s one way to start off your marriage. Together. These two have quite the blog post coming your way – good stuff, I tell you what. Insider tip : they can’t stop laughing. Also a good sign. Love them!

I’m off to shoot a wedding in the rain. Should make for some fab pics :) Happy Friday!

Las Vegas Engagement Shoot Mandarin Oriental

Nicole and Jamie were totally committed to their session. I mean it. Totally. Committed.

They met at a costume party on Halloween, so they celebrated their engagement with a beautiful session on the Strip, followed by a ridiculous ten minutes in front of the fabulous gold wall. I am quite sure all the fancy pants watching us from the lobby thought we were certifiable. Oh well. It was worth it, as you can see. Stay tuned for their full session, which will obviously showcase more stuff like this. Obvs.

Las Vegas Elopement Photographer

Will and Jess. They ran away to get hitched, so I made them run for a cool photo. Seems fair. And to be totally honest, she was wearing flats, so I was pretty sure she’d be game. Obviously, I was right! ;)

Back to how awesome this pic is. A little ambient street light, an urban wall behind you, a slow shutter speed and an honest laugh coming out of your mouth. In. Love.

I am so glad I got to spend the afternoon with you, even if it started with a serious lack of beverages in your limo. We got it all worked out, and it was fantastic in so many ways. I’m wishing the two of you all the best – congrats!!

Las Vegas Strip Engagement Session

So, sometimes I have to do weird stuff, like send you up the escalator while I troll under the bridge waiting for the perfect shot. But, see? It’s worth it. Promise.

Brandon and Aubrie were in town for their bachelor and bachelorette parties and decided Vegas was a great place to shoot their engagement photos. Clearly, I agree. We wandered around the Strip for an hour or so last Thursday and were shocked that there was plenty of space to shoot without a million people behind them. Yay for slow nights! :)

As we were headed back to their hotel, I saw this angle just before we headed up the stairs and thought it might make for a cool shot. I’ll try just about anything to get ‘the’ shot. So I sent them on up and yelled a few instructions their way. And I like where it all went. Congrats you two – your San Fran wedding will be fantastic!!
