Ashton & Adam’s Engagement

Red Rock Canyon Spring Mountain Engagement SessionWho would have thought these two Kansas kids from rival high schools would ever become a hot thing?! Although they only knew of each other in school and had never really met, fate would have its way. Many years later when Adam (who had since moved away) was back in town for a few months, they had a chance meeting at a bar on Ashton’s birthday. Not only were they glued to each other the whole evening, but they spent the entire next day together too and have been completely inseparable ever since!

In honor of their wedding this fall, we went out to one of Ashton & Adam’s favorite places, Red Rock Canyon, for a day spent exploring and celebrating their love.

Stefani + Josh’s Wedding

Romantic Bohemian Desert Wedding Photography

Stefani and Josh were wed on the grounds of Southern Highlands Golf Club, providing the perfect blend for their celebration: close to city to celebrate it up in style, yet feeling worlds away for a beautiful natural aesthetic with lots of trees and the Nevada mountains as their backdrop. I loved the glam elements Stefani incorporated throughout the day, bringing ‘city chic’ touches to their romantic outdoor ceremony. The day couldn’t have been more perfect thanks to the help of Nichole at Southern Highlands and Stefani & Josh’s amazingly talented wedding coordinators, Angela Dyer and the Simply Weddings team.

Southern Highlands WeddingSouthern Highlands Wedding Loved this moment between Stefani and her stylist bridesmaids (Sarah, Meghan, Courtney, Sarah, Danielle & Kara). Stefani wore the biggest smile all day long. You could definitely feel the happiness and love, and it was totally contagious!Southern Highlands WeddingSouthern Highlands Wedding

Sybil & Eddie: Engagement

Stylish Desert Sand Dunes Engagement Session

Nearly nine years after their first encounter through mutual friends at a dance club – where Eddie wooed Sybil with his intriguing eyes and smooth moves on the dance-floor and Sybil captured Eddie, first with her beauty, then with her quick wit and down-to-earth personality – they are getting married! I can’t wait for the big weekend this August at the chic M Resort here in Las Vegas.

And for a little pre-wedding celebration, we went on a mini-adventure where we spent the day exploring, soaking up the warm desert sun and capturing just how perfect these two are together. <3

For more from these two, check out the killer behind the scene’s video Eddie & team put together from our shoot! http://vimeo.com/119097570

Also, I just have to share their sweet proposal video: https://vimeo.com/88863270 – Eddie & Sybil are both super creative (Eddie is also owner & the talent behind video production company Salty Tiers!) And with their love of unique and creative art, they share a quirky, fun tradition of collecting caricature drawings together wherever they travel. So, for his proposal, Eddie staged the ultimate caricature – one which ended with him on one knee and Sybil saying “YES!”  ^_^ Check it out above!

E+S: Had a blast with you guys & can’t wait to see you again soon for the big weekend!

Mt Charleston Winter Wedding Style

Mt Charleston Snowy Winter Wedding Photography

There’s always been an indescribable magic and romance about the winter time. When those final warm rays of summer give way to an icy chill and rosy cheeks, it almost makes you want to drop everything in that instant to cozy up with warm layers, hot cocoa (with extra mini marshmallows, of course!) and your favorite person. ^_^

So in honor of the chilly weather outside, I’m excited to share this styled wedding collaboration I did with the fabulous event design and coordination team, Scheme Events, and a talented team of Las Vegas’ best! Together we put together a modern woodland wedding that showcased a different side of Las Vegas. Just an hour outside of the strip rests the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort resort, set atop Mount Charleston. In the winter this lush forest is transformed into a dreamy snowy backdrop that’s the perfect setting for a winter wedding.

Mt Charleston Snowy Winter Wedding PhotographyThe Ski and Snowboard Resort has these lovely yellow ski lifts that Scheme Events used for seating in the reception area, draping them with flowers by Layers of Lovely. Some other unique design details were adorable moose place cards, flower-filled faceted terrariums, a rustic yarn diagram seating chart and a classic naked cake from Peridot Sweets.
