Jamie and Patsy | 2 hour wedding | Desert and Chapel

Las Vegas Elopement - Desert Vibes

Desert elopements have been gaining popularity over the last few years, and with damn good reason. There’s just something special about spending time in this place with the one you love, and the vibe here can be so magical. Just look at the pretty light Jamie and Patsy had on their wedding day. We only had about 15 minutes on the lakebed until it was time to head to their ceremony and we got about a million great shots out there! You don’t have to spend hours taking pictures to end up with the shots you want. My 2 Hour Collection is usually just enough time for an elopement! 😍

vintage and then some…

Wedding Photographer in Las Vegas

Clients ask me ALL the time where to get married so that I can shoot them. You know…with my fancy pants camera and all 😉 And, just in case you might be planning a little white shindig of your own, here’s your pro tip for the weekend: make sure you can bring your own photographer, or book a quickie shoot for after the ceremony (or both!). This shot happens to be from one of the only venues in town that allows me to shoot you (at no additional charge – bonus points!). It’s a classic and very vintage, but I love that for intimate ceremonies. They’re great to work with and the final images are always very Vegas, but also quite beautiful. If you want to get shot here, by me, just ask me how! Happy Saturday. Keep it real ’til next week!

waiting

Las Vegas Chapel Wedding

I post often about the moments of anticipation that lead up to a wedding. I love those moments, and I love capturing them for my clients. For this one, Ben and Claire were sitting in the lobby of the Little White Chapel, waiting for their officiant to lead them outside to the gazebo for their ceremony. We were seated on opposite sides of the room and we were chatting easily as we waited. They were just so at ease and happy sitting there, I couldn’t help but snap a shot of them. Oftentimes a couple will try to pose as soon as the camera comes up to my face, but these two were content to just be. And that’s all I could ever ask for – for someone to feel so comfortable with me that they’re willing to drop their guard and just be. All this a mere 3 minutes after we meet face to face. Love you guys! And so happy you love your images!

the cool kids

 Las Vegas Wedding Photographer

While the bride and groom were wrapping up some details after saying their vows, this was a quick grab after the ceremony of a few of the cool kids waiting to party.

I shot this at the Little White Chapel near downtown Las Vegas, which is quickly becoming one of my faves if you’re going the chapel route. There aren’t too many chapels in Vegas that allow you to bring your own photographer, meaning you have to use their in-house photographer and hope you get some good shots of your ceremony. Scary stuff, kids. 😉

Happy Monday – and stay cool.
