Hello 2017! I welcome you with open arms. Today I'm sharing that I am going to offer wedding photography again (well, Stan and I both.) We've talked about it a lot lately, and it just seem fitting that we go back into the business with lovers and memorable days again. It's where I began my career about five years ago, so if you're interested or know someone who is there are some photos in the gallery, but most are here in the blog. Feel free to drop me a line! I would be honored to capture your special day!
I am a lover of all non traditional weddings. So photographing this wedding was so fun, the couple was fun, the wedding party was fun, you get the point. It was a crowd of bikers on a beautiful golf course surrounding two people whose vows alone made us all tear up. It was beautiful, and I am so honored that I was able to be apart of their day to capture it. My dad had asked Stan and I to help shoot this wedding (we didn't know how sick he was, but he did, and he wanted the extra assistance) I look back and this was a great day. The three of us doing what we loved together for the sake of other people's love.
What an amazing shoot I had this week with Hillary B of hbyou.com! We met at the Seven Magic Mountains (just several miles south of Las Vegas) and I mean wow! What a great place to photograph. It's so colorful, peaceful, and easy to get to. So it's the absolute perfect place for an inspirational fashion blogger like herself! We had a blast despite the cold, cold temperatures that come with shooting at sunrise. When it came to editing you'll notice a few different styles. My husband and I got a little editing happy, and we both created a few different presets. He created a more dramatic style, and I came up with a slightly brighter version but with the same color tones. It was fun! I love when work doesn't feel like work.

These photos are magic. I've dreamed of creating something like this for so long. It was an honor to photograph my best friend and her husband. Absolutely an honor.
I'm hands down obsessed with this shoot, and how all of these photos came out! We made it out to the desert area near my home, and shot like crazy before a rain storm hit. It was so much fun, and man do these two love birds know how to pose for pictures!
My best friend and her hubby came to Vegas for a short visit last week, and I'm so stoked that they did! This girl, and I have been best friends since we were 7 years old! So that's 19 years of friendship and counting. && these two have been married for 5 years, and for those 5 years I've dreamed of photographing them! && it finally happened! Can you tell that I'm exicted to share these photos?!!!
When my Dad passed away I was left with a lot of things that once were his. Things he wore, read, collected etc. But this hat was special. It was rustic, and something he wore not very often, but he had it. Sometimes he would hike in the desert wearing it, but most of the time not. I don't know why I liked it so much. I just did. Maybe it was the simple fact that it was his, and all I'm left with are some of his belongings, memories and pictures. So I hold onto them tightly.
It's amazing what presets can do for a photographer's life. Because, frankly editing images can feel overwhelming. For me it's usually because I see the images in more of a sepia tone, or with just a slightly higher exposure and I just can't decide. So setting some standard presets helps me enhance photos in the presise way I dreamed of, without having to take the extra time to set each basic setting a million times for each picture. It's a lovely gift in the world of photography I must say.
