three of my favorite places to get photographed this winter in las vegas

Neon Museum - Las Vegas Wedding Venue

It gets cold here in Las Vegas during winter. No, probably not anywhere nearly as cold as where you came from, but we happen to consider anything under 65 degrees “cold.” It’s still the same sexy Vegas glitz and dry desert air, but for me as a photographer, the vibe is very different. How so, you ask? The light outside is the biggest change, with the days in December getting dark near 5pm local time, but that low winter solstice sun makes for some only-in-winter dramatic light. If you are looking to book an outdoor session with me this winter, some of my favorite spots to capture this romantic winter light would be the Neon Museum, Red Rock/Spring Mountain Ranch and the Arts District.

I don’t do a ton of boudoir shoots outside in winter (go figure right?!). But I do like to time my boudoir shoot start times to accommodate the winter light. The amount of light that makes its way through your hotel room window is half of what we would see in summer at some hotels. If you are considering booking a boudoir shoot this winter, I will go over all of this with you when we chat!

 

Neon Museum

The Neon Museum is amazing at scheduling shoots at just the right hour for whatever you are looking for. The guys and gals over there would be more than thrilled to help you book the right time (assuming they are available – call now before your date books up!). You have the option of booking a more daytime shoot with brighter sunlight, or booking a dusk session where they will happily turn the signs and lights on for you! A few signs are actually restored and working and some are lit with external lighting, but either way, the space makes for fantastic images.

Red Rock

Red Rock and Spring Mountain Ranch are basically neighbors and each has its own merits (and permitting process!). They both provide stunning mountain views and that cool, beautiful winter light. The trick here is starting your session much earlier than you think you might need to (think two or three hours before sunset or so!). This is because the sun dips behind the mountains much earlier than expected. Of course, I will help you decide exactly what time we should start and where and anything else you need help with!

Arts District/Downtown

The same rules apply here for the rest for the city – great shots can be had, just a few hours earlier in the day! The ever changing walls and sun flare are the perfect backdrop for lots of my clients and maybe you can envision yourself here, too!
