Vegas baby! Liz and Zach's Las Vegas Wedding

Zach and Liz live in the PNW.  They planned their wedding in Las Vegas, NV so they could have a small intimate and stress-free day and just have a fun time with their closest people. 

Liz and Zach love tattoos and going to shows. They have been dating for more than 10 years and finally decided to get married. Liz loves vintage and retro decor. She found Flora pop online and fell in love with the vintage teardrop pop up wedding trailer for her ceremony and reception at the El Dorado Dry Lake Beds in Nevada. Sadly we brought the PNW weather with us and in poured rain in the desert make for very wet lake beds instead. 

It didn't rain on our parade though. We all made the best of it and toasted to how life is funny that way. Sometimes you can have all the perfect plans made and yet things happen. We don't always have control of things in life or marriage. Sometimes we just have to go with the flow and enjoy the ride. 

After the Ceremony, we retreated back to the MGM Grand where they had the reception in a large suite with a beautiful view of the Las Vegas strip. It was a cracking party with lots of booze and close friends and family.

We snuck a few boudoir shots in before Liz put on her dress and I took one on her phone so she could also send him a little teaser just before the first look! He was getting anxious and then boom! Instant smiles! <3 ever="" moment="" nbsp="" p="" sweetest="">

Getting Ready for your Wedding: Tips for Brides

 Let's talk about Wedding Hair and Makeup and how long you will need to get ready on your wedding day. When it comes to planning your wedding day timeline this is a question I get a lot from brides "How long will it take to get ready?"  Generally, the answer is different for every bride and I try my best to give great advice when it comes to planning these details but let's face it, I'm the photographer, not a wedding planner or HMUA. I typically will suggest my brides get ready early and plan at least 1 hour per bridesmaid for hair and makeup. It seems like a lot of brides think they are going to have all day to get ready but time slips away very quickly on the day of. I have seen bridal parties with 10+ bridesmaids get full hair and makeup and still arrive on time ready for photos with no hiccups and I've seen small bridal parties struggle to show up an hour late to the ceremony. It's so important to make sure you have enough time for everyone to get rea

So you want to start a photography business?

 Hello friends,  I wanted to hop on and answer a question I get all the time... How do you start a photography business?  Yep, I know it's kind of a broad question but believe me I get tons of emails, Facebook messages, and Instagram DMs with people flat out asking for me to help them get started.  I don't mind, really I'm happy to help but if I really truly shared every bit of information with every single person who reached out it would take me hours and hours to put it all together and I would be giving away everything I have done/learned. That is coaching or mentoring and if you are looking for a business coach I know some amazing ones and I'd be happy to connect you or if you'd like to hire me as your photography business coach, I'd be happy to work with you. It's so much more than taking pretty photos or setting up cute backdrops and props. If you don't have a good understanding of how to run a business it can be incredibly challenging.  I have do

Pomeroy Farm Wedding, Jesse and Sierra

I absolutely love photographing couples at Pomeroy Farm Wedding Venue in Yacolt WA! It is by far one of my favorite venues. I love that is a historical venue. The history is so neat, the property is absolutely stunning and the family who owns and operates the wedding venue and historic farm are just the sweetest. They offer a variety of events throughout the year for families to visit and learn about the farm. Pumpkin lane is one of my favorites in October! If you haven't been out to see this beautiful historic Farm,  Wedding Venue, and winery you should definitely plan a visit!  Wedding Venue: Pomeroy Farm- Yacolt, WA What song did you choose for your first dance?
