So, as I am trying to familiarize myself a little more with the Cincinnati area, I was checking out some different wedding venues online, and the first one that popped up on Google was Pinecroft Mansion at Crosley Estate. I was immediately drawn to the Tudor mansion that just jumped off the page at me.  Check out this pic that I snagged from their homepage.

Just in the nick of time to get those holiday cards out, I was joined by some personal friends for a holiday portrait session! I’m happy to introduce the Zegers Family. We began our session at the unique and rustic Bonnie Springs. About 15 minutes away from Las Vegas, Bonnie Springs retains much of its antique heritage and still has some of its original structures, including the rail road and train stop that were built way back in 1843. The antique wood of the rail way blends seamlessly with the surrounding desert scenery and makes the perfect location for a photo shoot. The Zegers are such a fun loving family – it really was a thrill playing around with and photographing them. After having fun at the railway we moved a bit more North toward Red Rock Canyon to Calico Basin, easily one of the most scenic parks in all of Nevada. From the yellow trees and desert flowers, to the rusty colored mountains Calico Basin is full of diverse landscapes that are simply beautiful. I had such a great time sitting back and watching this family be there wonderful selves, simply full of life and fun. A great holiday photo shoot with great people! Thank you Zegers family and happy Thanksgiving!!!Greg and Cara Las Vegas Wedding_0131.jpg

Visiting all the way from Broome Australia, I have the pleasure of presenting the new Mr. and Mrs. Patterson, Greg and Cara. Making this their third trip out to Las Vegas, Greg and Cara wanted to do something special, something memorable. So after 7 years of dating they decided it was time to put a ring on it and get married by none other than the king of rock, Elvis!!

Greg and Cara’s ceremony was held at the iconic Las Vegas Neon Museum, personally one of my favorite spots for photo shoots. Not in what we would consider traditional wedding attire, their outfits and even their unique choice of wedding rings, all let their wonderful personalities really shine though. Cara’s wedding ring was an especially gorgeous triangle cut blue lapis lazuli that looked amazing on her. Accompanied by close friends from their home town of London, the ceremony was full of fun and laughs. Greg and Cara’s friends even brought a boom box equipped with the sound of a cheering crowd for the moment Elvis pronounced them officially married.

Once the ceremony concluded, I took Greg and Cara around the museum capturing these two newlyweds love and joy for each other. Using a Polaroid camera their friends had brought along, they snapped a few instant memories of their own which I thought was so adorable. As the sun set, and the lights came on, the electric signs came alive giving off colored lights that highlighted Greg’s suite and reflected beautifully off of Cara’s dress.

Thank you Greg and Cara for sharing your wedding day with me. I had a wonderful time with you and wish you best in your future!

I am delighted to present the new Mr. and Mrs. Fetaz!

Max and Julie were first referred to me by a past client, Jenifer! I just LOVE when clients are so happy that they refer me to their friends – its such a wonderful feeling!

We had a great time hanging out during their engagement session at Red Rock Canyon. The weather was perfect, and I could tell how utterly in love these two were with one another!!

On the wedding day, I met up with Julie at Green Valley Ranch, and the first thing I noticed entering her suite was how happy and excited her bridal party was for her. I could tell immediately that she was surrounded by loving, caring people and that the ceremony would be emotional and full of joy. Julie’s dress was looked absolutely gorgeous on her! The bodice of her dress was finely detailed in an intricate lace floral pattern with the skirt made of layered satin. Complementing her dress, Julie wore a cathedral veil and gorgeous diamond earrings. Now ready for her wedding day, I finished up taking pictures of Julie and rushed out to courtyard where her soon to be husband, Max, who was eagerly awaiting their first look. I could tell he was nervous and very emotional, which was just ridiculously cute! I loved Max’s grey suit. I must saw he looked quite dapper, oh, and he had a pretty awesome looking boutonniere to boot as well!

Max finally got to see his bride in a very touching first-look moment, as Julie anxiously walked down the grand staircase toward him. After settling from seeing each other in their wedding attire, I took Max and Julie around the Green Valley Ranch’s vineyard which makes for a very natural and serine location for taking photos. Before we knew it, their personal shuttle was out front and ready to take the couple and their party to the wedding location. I would have loved to have more time snapping pics at Green Valley, as I always wish to have more time when behind the lens, but nevertheless, we still go amazing photos in the time we had! Changing venues to the groom’s parents’ house, the backyard was completely transformed into a jaw-drop gorgeous ceremony location,  full of white garden chairs for the tons of friends and guests wanting to watch the couple take their vows. Everything was decorated with muted white and purple roses, highlighted with purples, sage, and a multitude of lighter shades of green. Once the ceremony started, it was very apparent Max and Julie are popular people! The ceremony even got to the point it was standing room only. When the touching ceremony was over, and family members all had their turn posing for pictures with the newlyweds, we left for the reception venue.

Julie and Max had their reception at one of Las Vegas’ premiere Italian restaurants Piero’s. Piero’s has been featured in “The Vegas Standard” as well as “The Dish” and our groom’s father just so happens to be the head chef. The entire bar side of the restaurant was rented out just to hold all of Max and Julie’s guests who were treated to a fabulous 5 course meal. With touching toasts to the new couple and lots of laughter, everyone celebrated by dancing the night away.

Max and Julie, thank you for letting me share in the union of your new family, and I can’t wait to see a baby bump!!;)
