One of the things I love about working with Melissa is being able to accompany brides and grooms in all sorts of weddings, from huge, 600-guest affairs with extensive wedding parties to elopements that involve just the bride and groom. And in both cases, we the photographers are with the happy couple throughout their events! No wonder we say it’s important to choose the right wedding photographer.
Anyway, the wedding of Anke & Marius was one of the latter types. They flew from Berlin, Germany to Las Vegas, Nevada with their son Philip to enjoy warm, sunny weather and the Vegas experience. We travelled in style: I rented a limo for them – an awesome stretch Escalade – and went on a tour of the Strip and Downtown. They got married at one of those great little wedding chapels (Elvis was not involved on this occasion). The day ended with shoes thrown off back at their hotel room at the Cosmopolitan just after sunset, on a balcony overlooking the dancing fountains at Bellagio.
It was great to meet the fabulous couple and their son (who was really really stoked to meet Spiderman!) and to spend this memorable afternoon with them in Vegas. Here’s a few shots from the day.
Aller guten Dinge sind drei!
This was a simple but spectacular wedding in so many ways. Tracee and Chance were married at the Avi Resort and Casino in Laughlin, NV last month. Everyone was from out of town, including us (mostly Utah) and the wedding had a bit of a vacation feel to it. It was so relaxed, heartfelt and incredibly sweet. I met Tracee and Chance face to face for the first time on their wedding day and fell in love with them immediately! We actually ended up staying with the couple and wedding party out until late that night. You can’t really say you’re close to the bride and groom until you’ve had pancakes with them at 2am!
Their son Harper was the life of the party and danced the night away. Man does he have the moves! He was also slightly obsessed with the cake but, to be honest, I can’t really blame him because it was delicious.
Also, a wedding isn’t complete unless there are sugar gliders involved… just sayin’.
