Chelsea Nicole Photography – Las Vegas, Southern California and Destination Wedding Photographer » The latest work from Chelsea Nicole!

  • Based on the west coast, Chelsea Nicole travels worldwide capturing the sparks, romance
    and magic that first inspired her couples to dream about saying: ‘I do!’

Amy and Jeremy became close friends after meeting in law-school, but it wasn’t until Jeremy got really hungry one 4th of July weekend that sparks [literally] flew. He was in Tahoe, and she was in Vegas, baking her famous annual cupcakes. He asked for one, so on a whim (breaking all her lawyer-logical ways) she hopped on a flight, and called him saying ‘You can come pick up your cupcakes at the airport.’ She says, “I waited outside in passenger pickup and suddenly there was Jeremy who threw his arms around me, kissed me, and the rest is pretty much history!”

Now, after five years together, I’m so happy to share some images from their beautiful lakeside wedding. Held at the mediterranean inspired Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort, their day was the perfect mix of classic romance, and timeless fun!

After nearly 11 years together, Kristin and Scott are finally married with a colorful and intimate ceremony that totally reflects their vibrant personalities! It was just the two of them and their parents at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas.

There’s no end to the creativity with this couple! They’re super passionate about photography, cinematography, design, crafting and art collecting. I love that they even picked the famous print colors CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) as their wedding color palette! I’m so happy to share a few images from their colorful elopement below.

    liz - Such a pretty wedding. Beautifully captured Chelsea!

One of Tanya and Sean’s favorite things to do together is to explore new restaurants and bars – especially little-known spots and dive bars. Their first date was at just such a place, where they danced and laughed the night away to live jazz. For this engagement session, Tanya and Sean introduced me to one of their favorite spots, House of Shields, in San Francisco where we started the day off right with good conversation and some delicious hand-crafted cocktails:

Tanya and Sean’s wedding is coming up at the end of May at Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas! With their talented coordinator Tory L. Cooper working behind-the-scenes, they have planned an incredible day.

T and S, I can’t wait to be a part of your day and see you make that very special walk down the aisle after so many years of friendship and love! Congrats guys!

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.
