Melissa & Kyle’s Wedding

Melissa & Kyle's Las Vegas Destination Wedding

When Melissa first contacted me, she described wanting a small intimate event, matched by a day filled with a fun, unique experiences to show the different aspects of Vegas. It all came together beautifully with a gorgeous location, romantic details and special little touches everywhere that let the guest know they were thought of every step of the way.

Sarah + Clayton

Now, you may be thinking Clay is totally Sarah’s honky-tonk hero, and you’d be right. But he’s also mine. While we were driving out to this shoot, my car got stuck in the ultra thick, post-rain lake-bed dirt. But not to worry! Before I knew it, he jumped out with chains and used his truck (the very same truck they used for their first secret-desert-picnic date) to wrangle me out. Without him, I guess you could say, this shoot never would have happened. And you’d be right!

So thanks Clay! You and Sarah made this whole day such a fun, playful, sexy adventure! But I’ll let the images tell the rest!

‘Save a horse ride a cowboy!’

Be sure to check back for lots more of these two! I am SO looking forward to their wedding next spring! It’s going to be an outdoor, country style affair at the beautiful Springs Preserve.
