Boulder City Wedding Photography: Jackie & Jesse

Weddings are such unique and beautiful things. The personality of the couple can really shine through in their choices of decorations, flowers, and location. The dusty roses, delicate greenery, and touches of burlap showed Jackie & Jesse as a very down to earth and loving and cute couple. I was looking forward to shoot this Boulder City Wedding Photography.

The Location

We did our shoot at two locations. The first was when Jackie was getting ready at the Best Western Hoover Dam Hotel, located at 704 Nevada Highway in Boulder City, Nevada. After that, the wedding was held at the FORGE Social House, located at 553 California Avenue in Boulder City, also. This seemed like the perfect location for the bride and groom to hold their ceremony. They had such simple yet elegant decorations that did not take away from the beautiful ceremony. Instead, they enhanced the love and dedication of the couple. The natural scenery outside created the perfect backdrop for the couple and family photos. It was very enjoyable doing Wedding Photography in Boulder City.

Weddings can be very emotional, and this one was no exception. I am not sure there was a dry eye in the place. Jackie and Jesse each have two children, a son and daughter, from previous relationships. The ceremony wasn’t just about bringing two people together, but two families. These two were creating something big and special with their love and commitment. It was so very touching to witness.

Blending a family together isn’t always so easy, yet Jackie & Jesse seem to have done a wonderful job. It was so fun being able to photograph both the parents and the children during this special day. They were so very handsome/pretty in their formal wear.

Boulder City Wedding Photography is a little more laid back and relaxed than that of Las Vegas. It’s a calmer, and mellower atmosphere than the glitz and glamour of the glitter in the Las Vegas valley. It was so great to be able to shoot a beautiful wedding for such a cute and wonderful couple. You have something very special with each other. I wish you all the best in your bright and happy future together.

Las Vegas Wedding Photographer: Bethany & Marco

I have been lucky enough to be able to document the beginning of Bethany & Marco’s life together as their Las Vegas Wedding Photographer. I met the couple through Steph Ann from Lush Event Productions for their engagement photo shoot about a year ago. On October 21, 2017, I had the honor of photographing their wedding and the reception as well as a few fun snapshots at the beautiful Sunset Park.

The Location

We did our Las Vegas Wedding Photography in three different locations. We started first at The Church: Christ The King Catholic Community, 4925 S Torrey Pines Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89118 for the wedding ceremony itself. The church was so very beautiful and elegant.  After, we moved to Sunset Park: 2601 East Sunset Road, Las Vegas, NV 89120 for some fun pictures. Last, we made our way to Conference Center of Las Vegas, 5pm-7:45 pm: 6590 Bermuda Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89119 for their reception.

About the Shoot: Las Vegas Wedding Photographer

It’s always so much fun to not only photograph a couple’s engagement shoot but the wedding as well. It’s beautiful to see a relationship develop and grow over time this way. So much can change in a year, and it’s wonderful to be able to see it through from engagement to the exchange of vows. Bethany & Marco were such a great couple to be able to photograph. Both were so extremely kind and a joy to work with.

I wish nothing but the best for Bethany & Marco in their long and beautiful life together! Thank you so much for choosing me for your big day.

Mary’s 40th Las Vegas Birthday Photography

I was contacted by Brandalyn McNeil from Oh My Posh Weddings & Events. Her client Mary Hawn had reached out to plan her 40th birthday party. Some women aren’t as thrilled about celebrating the big 4-0, but Mary was ready to start her new decade off right. They decided it would be fun to do a Halloween dress up party. This seemed as though it would be a blast for Las Vegas Birthday Photography, and it was!

The Location

The party was held at The Terrace, located at 1361 West Warm Springs Road in Henderson, Nevada. The place was decorated very well, with headstones, cobwebs, and other spooky decorations with a splash of 40th birthday decorations throughout. The tables were simple but very festive. The chairs had black covers with festive bows and a cobweb covered lantern as the centerpiece. There was a photo booth and great music to keep the party going.

There were ghouls and goblins of every shape and size at Mary’s party. I had such a great time taking photos of the decorations, the cake and each fun and unique costume worn by friends and family. There were witches, kitty cats, a unicorn, even the big bad wolf.  I don’t think I have ever seen such a fun way to celebrate a 40th birthday. As a matter of fact, even the DJ was in the spirit of Halloween in his Anonymous costume.

Mary showed everyone what great fun it could be to celebrate a 40th birthday. When it comes to Las Vegas Birthday Photography, you never quite know what you may get. Some birthdays are beautiful, some are simple, and some feature the birthday girl as a sword wielding murderer! Generally speaking, Las Vegas is definitely a place that can keep a photographer on her toes, that’s for sure.

I would like to thank Brandalyn McNeil for pulling me in on this party as well as Mary Hawn for having such a great birthday. She is obviously surrounded by some really great friends and family since everyone who came are what really made the party so much fun. Happy Birthday, Mary!
