Tasha & Michael Wedding Photography in North Las Vegas

From the very first email I received from the bride, Tasha, about doing her wedding, I knew that I was the right photographer for her and Michael. We walked through everything she was looking for on her special day and, through it all, she was truly nice to speak with. We spoke about which wedding photos she wanted and about the location itself. With this in mind, I was really looking forward to doing their Wedding Photography in North Las Vegas.

The Location

The wedding took place at the bride’s sister’s home in scenic North Las Vegas. The ceremony took place outdoors.Some very tall and stately trees created a great backdrop for the photos of the couple saying their vows at the altar. The arch wrapped in floral garland and white fabric was lovely. Having the wedding at this location seemed to be an excellent choice, as a result everyone was incredibly relaxed and having a lot of fun.

About the Shoot: Wedding Photography in North Las Vegas

Family and friends and even a few pets were in attendance and memories were made that day. The bridesmaids were loving the ability to share on this special day with Tasha and Michael. The colorful bouquets were a blast of color against all the gorgeous whites and purples of the wedding party. Smiles were abundant that day and we all had fun capturing the ring reactions photo.

Prior to the wedding day, Tasha and I spoke over the phone to go over the timeline for the wedding. She told me she felt as though she already knew me, which was very nice to hear. I always want my clients to be comfortable, especially for something as momentous as a wedding day. I make it my goal to truly capture their vision for this very special day in their lives. These memories will be shared, hopefully for generations and I am always honored to be chosen to do this for couples. Thank you, Tasha and Michael, for allowing me to be present at such a beautiful wedding. I couldn’t have chosen a better location or couple for my Wedding Photography in North Las Vegas.

Xori’s Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas

Xori’s mother, Lawanda contacted me recently about doing a photoshoot for her daughter to commemorate Xori’s Homecoming dance. In many ways, Homecoming is much like prom only in the fall. While not quite as formal, students still dress in semi-formal wear for Homecoming in order to celebrate coming back to school. Students often ask a classmate to attend with them or go with a group of friends. I was delighted to be able to do her Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas.

The Location

Our Las Vegas Homecoming Photography session took place at Willows Park, located at 2775 Desert Marigold Lane. The winding sidewalks, interesting stairways, and lovely greenery made a nice and nondescript backdrop for this photography session. In a few of the photos, it seemed as though the trees were framing up the scene for me. The park was not overly busy and the couple was able to relax and have fun.

About the Shoot: Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas

I happened to make it to our location at Willow Park before Xori. When I saw her as she arrived I was stunned by her beauty. She was breathtaking in a simple black dress and a sleek hairstyle. She looked as though she should be walking the red carpet. Her date for the evening joined her shortly after and his joy at being there was apparent. His grey jacket with a black shirt and tie were the perfect complement to Xori’s outfit. Both were all smiles and very comfortable with each other. I was very glad to be able to photograph them, as they were so photogenic and easy to work with.

While Homecoming Photography in Las Vegas isn’t extremely popular yet, I think this couple is an outstanding example of how fun and beautiful these types of photos can be. Schools often offer a standard photo at the dance, but nothing quite stands up to a lovely photo session done at a location of the couples choosing. This allows for their personality to shine as their comfort level increases. Xori and her date loved their Homecoming photos and, in the end, that is what truly matters the most. Thank you, Lawanda for contacting me to do your daughter’s photos. It was my pleasure.

Maternity Photography in Las Vegas: Omar & Ashley

I have worked with Omar & Ashley on two other occasions. I was ecstatic when I heard they were having a little boy! We decided to do the maternity photography in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017 to document their pregnancy and get the best belly shots. It was an added bonus to be able to document their love for each other, as well.

The Location

We settled on doing their maternity photography in Las Vegas at their lovely home in Summerlin, a neighborhood in Las Vegas. Their home featured some really great lighting and stunning design making it the ideal place to document the beginning of their family. The neutral colors and soft textures really made the perfect backdrop. Their whole home was so very comfortable and inviting.

About the Shoot: Maternity Photography in Las Vegas

Omar & Ashley are such a sweet couple and I really wanted to capture that. Their maternity photography in Las Vegas needed to reflect that gentle anticipation of a first child as well as the growing bond of the couple. Documenting a pregnancy is a very special honor. I wanted to ensure they had photographs that they would be proud to share with friends and family now as well as with their child after he is grown.

Our photo shoot was so much fun, yet you could also feel the love in the air. Having them in their natural environment really allowed me to capture what could be any moment of any given day with Omar & Ashley. You can see in their photos how excited and incredibly happy they are to become parents. It’s in Omar’s gentle touch and the soft smiles on Ashley’s face. The bond between them is almost tangible. These moments can pass so quickly and I was genuinely happy to capture this moment in time.

Maternity photo shoots aren’t something that everyone gets but they are becoming increasingly popular. I would really like to thank Omar & Ashley for allowing me to do their maternity photography in Las Vegas. It’s always fun to photograph a couple in such a beautiful home on during a pivotal point in their lives. They are always such a delight to work with!

Family Photo Session in Las Vegas: The Sigala Family

Family Photo Session in Las Vegas

This was a very fun photo session to do! Roxanna, the mother, had heard about me through her friend that I had done a photo session for in the past. She contacted me and asked for a family photo session in Las Vegas. Of course, I was delighted and we quickly set up a date. We settled on April 30th, 2017.

The Location

Roxanna and I brainstormed the best location possible for this photo shoot. It was really exciting to come up with the perfect location together. In the end, we both decided that Floyd Lamb Park would be best. This is because it is absolutely beautiful, with tons of natural scenery and backdrops. There are many trees and animals such as ducks. The photo shoot occurred on a bright and sunny day, which was perfect. You can see the sun glistening and shining through the trees in many of the photos.

About the Shoot

Roxanna and her husband have two lovely children. A young baby son, and an older daughter. Thus, we took a variety of family photos to make sure everyone was included! I loved this family photo session in Las Vegas because the Sigala family was so easygoing and fun to work with. Their kids are absolutely adorable. They all listened and cooperated wonderfully. Also, everyone wore the perfect outfit. Roxanna and her daughter wore gorgeous blouses with jeans that were amazing for this shoot, and her husband’s outfit was great too.

It was a day full of smiles and laughter. So, this Las Vegas Family Photo Session was definitely a huge success! A gorgeous location full of natural light and beauty, a warm and sunny day, and of course, a friendly and beautiful family to work with. I know the Sigala family will cherish these photos for life.

Family Photographer in Las Vegas Strip: Savannah

As a family photographer in Las Vegas, the city allows me the ability to capture memories for families only in town for a short while. Savannah contacted me a month ago about doing a family photo shoot for her and her three beautiful daughters. They were having a family vacation in sunny Las Vegas and wanted to document the trip with some quirky and fun family photos. She decided on the Las Vegas Strip for their location and we met on October 9, 2017, to do the shoot.

The Location

For a family photographer in Las Vegas, the landmarks offer so many places that would make a great backdrop. It can be so very hard to choose! The Strip seemed like an excellent place for some Las Vegas family photography. In the end, we snapped a few photos outside of the Venetian Hotel and Casino as well as other fun spots we found along the way. There were some really great Halloween decorations also and we visited Sprinkles Cupcakes at The Linq Hotel and Casino.

About the Shoot: Family Photographer in Las Vegas

Savannah and her daughters were so incredibly fun to work with. They were very playful and fun-loving, making this shoot a breeze. Their smiles really show they had a great time during our photo shoot. Each lovely young lady really lets their charm shine during our time together. As a Las Vegas family photographer I had a great time being able to capture each unique personality. While they may have had matching outfits, each sister definitely had her own style and nature. Savannah looked stunning in her all-black ensemble that was a nice compliment to her personality. Very elegant and stunning.

While these may not be your typical and traditional family photos, I am sure these ladies will have fun looking at them for years to come. As a family photographer in Las Vegas, you don’t always get to do such wild and crazy portraits. I feel so incredibly honored to have been chosen to capture their time here. Savannah and her daughters were such a fun family to spend the day with. I truly hope to hear from them again in the future.

Family Photography in Las Vegas: Pena Family

Family Photography in Las Vegas: The Pena Family

It’s always nice to work with repeat clients. This was a fun photo shoot to do because I had already worked with Karen in the past. Moreover, I knew that Karen Pena has a beautiful family, and she contacted me after I did her sister family session. For this Family photo shoot, she wanted to have a natural location. Therefore, Karen wanted her session to be at the Spring Preserve. As a matter of fact, Karen couldn’t have chosen a better location. I’ve done a lot of Family Photography in Las Vegas, therefore, I know that shooting there is always beautiful.

This is because the location is gorgeous, full of lush greenery and natural light. There were a variety of different areas to take photos in, a lovely pathway, and also many benches. There were also many backgrounds to choose from such as trees or rocks. Overall, it was a beautiful location. We scheduled the family photo shoot for April 23rd, 2017.

Candid Family Photography in Las Vegas

I loved working with Karen and her family because they are so friendly and kind. It was very important for Karen to have this photo shoot be as natural as possible. Therefore, this meant that she wanted me to capture her family in a candid way, which was easy to do. Hence, the photos really show how they are in their everyday life. Having fun, laughing, and enjoying their time together – of course, this is exactly how it should be! Furthermore, these types of photo shoots are always fun to do. Karen and her family were so cooperative, and their son is absolutely adorable. Moreover, I am sure that they will look back on these photos in a few years and treasure these moments. Kids can grow up so quickly.

Family photography is so important and will be treasured for life. It’s always nice to have a set of beautiful photos for the entire family to look back on, whether it be in 2, 5, 10, or 30 years. So, thanks to the Pena Family for a wonderful photo shoot!

Bobby’s Senior Pictures in Las Vegas

Bobby’s Senior Pictures in Las Vegas

Senior year is such an important time for students. It’s a vital year that can determine their future, in terms of what schools and programs they get into. For many students, after their senior year, they leave their hometowns and travel to various states to pursue their desired career paths. For this photo shoot, I had the pleasure of taking Senior Pictures in Las Vegas for Bobby. We scheduled the shoot for April 22nd, 2017, at two different locations. Firstly, we took photos at his high school, Ed W. Clark High School. After that, we went to Fremont Street Las Vegas, NV. This street features some incredible street art that makes great photo backgrounds.

About Bobby

Bobby is a senior in the Mathematics, Science, Arts and Technology program at Clark High School in Las Vegas. During his years at Clark, he was a very active student. He participated in varsity football, baseball, and track. In addition to all that, Bobby was also a part of DECA, Key Club, and Student Council! Bobby also served as Junior Class Student Council Treasurer. He has accomplished so much and it’s amazing to see a student so involved.

For the Senior Pictures in Las Vegas, Bobby wore the perfect outfits. For some of the photos, he had a sports sweater on and held a football as a prop which symbolized his involvement with sports at Clark. Next year Bobby will be studying mechanical engineering at the University of Southern California! Bobby had a sweater from USC which he also wore for some of the photos. Overall, all of the senior photos of Bobby turned out great. Hopefully, he can look back at these photos in a few years and be reminded of his years at Clark. Senior photos are a great way to preserve high school memories. In the future, they’re also great to look back at how much you have grown over the years.

Las Vegas Maternity Photography – Casey and Jose

Las Vegas Maternity Photography

Maternity is such an amazing thing. Therefore, having the opportunity to do some Las Vegas Maternity Photography is always incredible. Especially when it was with the wonderful couple Casey and Jose. They met in such a unique way. Casey went to Costa Rica to study abroad in 2008, and Jose was standing outside the airport with her name on a sign. Thus, he was the very first person that Casey met in Costa Rica. They got along so well together. Therefore, within a few weeks, they were dating. After living in Costa Rica for two years, Jose decided to come to Las Vegas. The couple got married in 2011, and have been enjoying their marriage ever since.

The Pregnancy

One thing on Casey’s “things to do before having a baby” list was to travel to Europe. Last year, they made this dream come true! So, Casey and Jose traveled to England, Spain, and Italy. Then, another dream of theirs came true. In March, Casey discovered she was expecting by simply taking pregnancy test she bought at the dollar store. Instead of showing Jose the results of the pregnancy test, Casey had another plan of how to tell Jose.

The Las Vegas Maternity Photography Shoot

Casey was so creative with the process. Therefore, she decided that she wanted Jose to find out they were expecting through a maternity photography shoot! She contacted me and explained her plan, and two days before the shoot she gave me two chalkboards. Then, on March 19th, 2017, at Exploration Peak Park, we had the photo shoot. In order to keep it a surprise, Casey told Jose that she won a photo session on the radio.

After taking a few shots, I mentioned that I brought a few props (the chalkboards that Casey had given me). So, I asked if the couple wanted to use them. They eagerly said yes. Then, I asked them each to write down 3 things that they loved about each other. In order to follow the plan, Jose went first. He wrote “smile, kind, selfless.” Casey went next, and she wrote “Va a ser papá,” which is Spanish for “you’re going to be a dad!” Jose was so shocked and happy! The couple is looking forward to this new adventure and I am so grateful that Casey reached out to me to be her Las Vegas Maternity Photographer.

Wedding Photography in Las Vegas – Eddy & Yesenia

Wedding Photography in Las Vegas – Eddy and Yesenia

Wedding Photography in Las Vegas is always so fun to shoot, especially with a couple as sweet as Eddy and Yesenia. Their wedding took place on March 18th, 2017. I was lucky enough to photograph two events for them. We did the bridal party pictures at the Smith Center, and the wedding reception took place at the Conference Center of Las Vegas. The decorations at the wedding were beautiful. The event planner was Lush Event Productions,  and they couldn’t have done a better job. All of the floral decorations were done by Mylofleur Floral. The cake was delicious, it was a gourmet wedding cake baked by Las Vegas Custom Cakes.

About The Couple

Eddy and Yesenia first met in their dance studio. Yesenia had been attending the studio for three years when Eddy came in. After they went on their first date together, they knew they had something special. The sweet couple has been together since May 22nd, 2016. The proposal was very romantic. It was close to New Years, and Eddy said he wanted to have a family activity with everyone skating at the Cosmopolitan Casino. Yesenia thought nothing of it.

They skated a bit while waiting for everyone to arrive (even though Yesenia wasn’t a great skater). Shortly after, Eddy’s brother yelled something to Yesenia. He said: “hey Yesenia, when are you getting married?” She turned and replied, “I don’t know, ask Eddy!” When Yesenia went to point to Eddy, she found him on the floor on the ice on one knee, with a ring out. Eddy proposed to Yesenia right then and there, and of course, she said yes. As they hugged, Eddy turned Yesenia around so she could face all her friends and family who had been hiding until that moment. It was such a romantic and fun proposal for Eddy and Yesenia.

Overall, everyone I met at the wedding was extremely nice. I had so much fun working with this couple. They even surprised everyone with a dance! These are the type of people that make Wedding Photography in Las Vegas so heartwarming to do.

Family Pictures in Las Vegas: Cindy & Mark Wedding Anniversary

  • Comments Off on Family Pictures in Las Vegas: Cindy & Mark Wedding Anniversary

Family Pictures in Las Vegas

On April 22nd, 2017, Cindy and Mark celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. They are a beautiful and compassionate couple with two lovely daughters, Alexis and Shaina. Their beloved daughters wanted to give their parents a special gift. So, they contacted me to arrange a family photo session. It had been a long time since the last time they did one. Of course, I loved the idea of this gift and we quickly arranged the date to take some Family Pictures in Las Vegas. The location we chose was The Smith Center, on Symphony Park Avenue in Las Vegas.

About The Shoot

Alexis and Shaina couldn’t have chosen a better gift for their parent’s wedding anniversary. Everyone was super excited about it! It was a very fun photoshoot with lots of laughs. I always love when people are comfortable and laugh during photo shoots because it makes for some outstanding photos. The family was very easy to work with. This was a unique photo shoot to do. This is because the daughters brought their partners! Therefore, it wasn’t just Cindy and Mark who got photos – Alexis and Shaina got photos with their significant others as well.

I took a variety of photos, some just of Cindy and her daughters, some of Cindy and Mark alone, and of course some with the entire family (both with and without the daughter’s partners). It was really so much fun. In the end, everyone loved the photos! I have a great feeling that I will be working with this family again soon and taking more Family Pictures in Las Vegas for them.

The Las Vegas Family Pictures I take always turn out great. I owe this entirely to the cooperative and fun families that I work with! Without their enthusiasm and excitement, the photos just wouldn’t be the same. Everyone at this shoot was very excited and happy to be there. This definitely shines through in the photos.
