Las Vegas Couples Photo Session: Ashley & Ryan Hogan

Not many couples choose to have their engagement photos done after they are already married, but that is exactly what Ashley and Ryan chose to do. We met on November 5, 2017, in order to do their Las Vegas Couples Photo Session. They brought along their adorable little dog Eddy to join in on the fun. While it may seem as though they were doing things a bit backward, in reality, it seemed to be the perfect order for this couple. Why not begin to document their lives together after they have married one another? While engagement and wedding photos are wonderful, sometimes a couple just needs to celebrate being together.

The Location

The couple decided that the Doctor Harry B. Johnson Rose Garden located at 5330 Somerset Hills Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada 89141 would be a great location. They were right, as the entire area is so incredibly beautiful. Everywhere you look there is another section that would be great for a photo. There are archways, paths, gazebos and so much more at this garden. Roses of every color, shape and size adorn the pathways giving a beautiful backdrop.

About the Shoot: Las Vegas Couples Photo Session

I think there is something incredibly fun about bringing your family pet to your couples photo session. Dogs seem to always lighten the mood and do something so incredibly funny during a shoot. They are often, unexpectedly, the center of attention. Ashley and Ryan’s pooch, Eddy, was undeniably cute with his little snub nose and pointy ears. He is definitely well loved by the couple and it’s easy to see why.

Ashley and Ryan are the sweetest and make a really great couple. I really enjoy these types of laid back and relaxed photo shoots. They really allow the personality and dynamic of a couple to shine through. Their love is obviously stronger than ever, and I am so very happy for them. These two seem to be a couple that can weather the storm and go through just about anything, as long as they have each other. Wishing you both a very bright and happy future Ashley, Ryan and Eddy!

Las Vegas Engagement Photography Session With Becky & Sean

Becky and Sean are a beautiful couple that recently got engaged. They hired me to create their Las Vegas Engagement Photography session for the day. I shot their engagement photos at Red Rock Canyon and Calico Basin on February 4th, 2017. The engagement session was great, with such a beautiful background and amazing lighting.

About the Couple

Sean and Becky first met at a bowling event that was planned by their church group. A while after that bowling event, Becky mentioned to the group they were in that she quickly needed to learn how to drive a stick-shift vehicle for her job. It was very hard for Becky to find a vehicle to practice her driving on. That very next week, Sean showed up and placed his car keys in her hand! He had literally just bought a stick-sift car that same week. That is where their friendship began.

They stayed friends for a while, and finally started dating in September. This happened when a certain motorcycle trip to Nelson’s Landing was planned. 4 months later, the couple flew to Missouri and South Carolina to meet each others families. While in South Carolina, where Becky’s family was, Sean asked for her father’s permission to marry her. He said yes!

On Becky’s birthday (December 31st), they ended up at a ring store. Becky pointed out the ring that she liked, but Sean insisted that they just wait until they got back to Vegas. Later that night, they had a lovely New Year’s Eve/Birthday dinner spent with Becky’s family. Just as they were preparing to celebrate the New Year right before midnight, Sean pulled out the ring that Becky pointed out at the store! It was the perfect moment. They then prayed together for God’s blessing on their relationship in the New Year, and then Sean proposed.
