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
Photographers: what made you fall in love with photography? What drives your passion for photography? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love creating photos that make people happy. I love getting to do something both technical and creative. I love trying new techniques and films and cameras. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you want to do this year to push and challenge your skills? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gorgeous florals provided by @elite_floral_events
I do lots of gritty urban Vegas elopements, and so it's always fun for a change of pace to step off the streets of downtown Vegas and head to an elegant venue like @redrockcountryclubweddings for a grand wedding day. Kelli and her girls looked absolutely stunning with their florals from @layersoflovely and their perfect hair and makeup from @makeupinthe702. I freaking loved everything about this day, and especially Kelli and Tyler, who are just two of the sweetest people you could ever meet. Check out these hotties sharing a moment together!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Venue: Red Rock Country Club | Hair and Makeup: Makeup in the 702 | Florals: Layers of Lovely | Cake: @lasvegascustomcakes | Stationary & Invites: @mintedweddings | Wedding Dress: @pronovias via @gowngallery | Capeveil: @champagneandgrit #dreamvendorteam 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #loveintentionally #elopementphotographer #featuremeoncewed #greenweddingshoes #bohobride #smpweddings #loveauthentic #destinationweddingphotographer #stylemepretty #theknot #weddingseason #risingtidesociety #bohowedding #lasvegasweddingphotographer #redrockcountryclub #vegaselopement #littlethingstheory #soloverly #chasinglight #indiewedding #huffpostido #indiebride #champagneandgrit #destinationwedding #theweddingscoop #vegasbound #nevadabride #weddingdiary #veil
I can't wait to start showing off more tidbits from this gorgeous @redrockcountryclubweddings wedding! From Kelli's INCREDIBLE @pronovias dress from @gowngallery, to this amazing bouquet, courtesy of @layersoflovely, I'm in love with this entire day, and this beautiful couple! Stay tuned for more!
Doesn't this badass couple look like they were having a blast? Walking down Las Vegas Blvd, just after getting hitched at the world famous Little White Wedding Chapel, you know they have some good memories to take back home with them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That's why I love Vegas. It absolutely offers couples the most unique and eclectic wedding day experience. The day becomes about them and their adventure, without no obligation to weigh them down. *sigh* I love this city! 💫
What's something you're afraid of? I'm afraid of making a bad impression when I meet new people. I'm also super intimidated by groups of new people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last weekend I ventured out of my comfort zone to meet new photographers and create new opportunities. The people I met were wonderfully welcoming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm so thankful for these new experiences and opportunities to meet more photographers. Here's to conquering more fears in 2019!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ | Dress: @swoonbridal & @wtoowatters | Florals: @havenflorals | Venue: Crystal Peak Park, Reno, NV. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lookslikefilm #junebugweddings #greenweddingshoes #bleachmyfilm #ftwotw #quietthechaos #tahoeweddingphotographer #photobugcommunity #expofilm #ftmedd #featuremeofh #theknot #l0tsabraids #renoweddingphotographer #tangledinfilm #loveauthentic #chasinglight #photographyislifee #featurepalette #postthepeople #weddingphotographer #portraitcollective #renophotomeetup #elopementphotographer #folkportraits #loveintentionally #photographysouls #renoelopement #2instagoodportraitlove #pursuitofportraits
What is one thing you'd like to improve about yourself this year? For me, I'd really like to become a better listener. Talk less, and learn more about others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even though I'm an introvert, I'm still talkative. I'm also an only child, so I tend to chat people's faces off. Listening well to others is definitely something I'd like to improve about myself!
Rolling into this week like a bride in the snow pretending she isn’t cold. For reals though, how gorgeous is this beautiful lady? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How are you boss babes handling the start to your week? You ready to kick some ass this week? @swoonbridal @havenflorals @wtoowatters
Who’s ready for the weekend?! I have a guilty pleasure on Fridays because today is the day that Live PD airs on A&E! I love me some good cop reality tv! 🤓 What are your Friday plans?!
