Let’s talk about Valley of Fire and how freaking incredible it is. A lot of couples are scared away by the fact that it’s about an hour and a half from the Strip, but the commute is completely worth it. An unworldly landscape and unparalleled beauty, Valley of Fire is one of Vegas’ lesser known gems! Look at this gorgeous bride and groom with their beautiful arch! GAH!!

Lots of people think that the oh-so-hilarious movie The Hangover was filmed at the famous A Little White Wedding Chapel. In actuality, the wedding chapel in the movie was just a prop chapel built for the film. What most folks don’t know, is the fake chapel was built just across Las Vegas Blvd. adjacent to A Little White Wedding Chapel. That’s where you can find this wall, an homage to the film, and it makes a fun and eclectic background for badass couples like these two! 💛
Let's pretend for a moment that there were many stick figures on this awesome yellow wall behind this beauitful bride. Let's also pretend that this is where, ultimately, at the advice of their very wise and apparently undetail-oriented photographer, this is where this gorgeous couple decided to have their entire wedding ceremony. Let's also, just for the sake of this story, pretend that someone had come along and drawn penises on all the stick figures on the wall. You'd think the photographer would have noticed all the penises, right? Well, you'd be wrong. You'd be so very wrong. And let's pretend that that photographer was me, and it was, and it happened, and I spent days removing penises in photoshop. 😂 - And this amazingly gracious and kind couple were very understanding of the Penis Drawing Incident of 2019 |Lovely hair and makeup by: @rubyfinchsalon
I really try to space out my wedding posts, but I’m having a hard time getting past this one. 😂😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The details, the lighting, THE GORGEOUS COUPLE, it is all very YES for me. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Officiant: @peachy_keen_unions | Florals: @girlluvsflowers | Videography: @purelightcreative | Hair and Makeup: @glammedupvegas | Dress: @bhldn
Summer is here! But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the beauty that is a fresh snowfall in the winter! 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love how the seasons can make a photo feel completely different! And I am so pumped all the time that Nevada has such a diverse landscape that make for some incredibly unique photos!
You’ll find my working on photography on the beach all summer. I think I have a problem. Beach addiction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s always been a dream to live close to water. Now that I do, my brain still doesn’t believe it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, I apologize in advance for all the water posts. 😳 Like I said, I think I have a problem.
When your brand is on point and you end up booking your ideal clients and they end up bringing the most kickass weird animal masks to their desert elopement, you know it’s gonna be a good time! Full moon + Paps bonus. Officiant: @peachy_keen_unions | Hair and Makeup: @glammedupvegas | Videography: @purelightcreative | Florals: @girlluvsflowers
Jumping back on the IG train again! I don’t know why as I get older, I find it harder and harder to regularly post to social media. Who’s with me on the posting struggle?! 🙋🏻♀️ Isn’t the Vegas desert magical? So enormous, quiet, and totally intimate! This dry lake bed feels worlds away from the bustling Vegas Strip, perfect for the best laid-back intimate elopements Vegas can offer!

I told @jodie_lev that I was really slacking with my social media game and her response was, “well, you can start by posting photos from my wedding!” Which is an easy request because this day was UNREAL. Talk about the perfect elopement in the middle of the desert with a GIANT full moon. How could I not post it?! It looked like a freaking styled shoot!

Because grooms deserve all the kisses too, dontcha’ think?
I’m currently in love with this weekend’s wedding at Valley of Fire. 😍 I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll never get sick of those desert colors and diffused skies. 💛💛💛
There is NOTHING like the pastels of the Nevada desert. Growing up in the west, I always thought the desert was ugly and craved greenery. Once I moved to Vegas, I was in awe of the fiery backdrop of places like Valley of Fire. The incredible palette of this place made me fall in love with desert scenery. I’m grateful that I get to take photos of the most wonderful brides and grooms in such a beautiful and unique location. 😍 Hair and Makeup by @makeupinthe702 | Planning and coordination by @labellaeventslv
