The Monday after Katie and Matt’s Las Vegas wedding, we met them at the Las Vegas sign to get some very touristy photos that we almost begged them to let us take. After the quick stop there, we headed to the Bellagio Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip to take some portraits around the gardens. It was so wonderful to get to photograph them in a city environment we don’t get in our quaint, coastal Georgia town.
Congratulations Katie and Matt!
What an incredible weekend with Katie, Matt, and their wonderful families! Amanda and I flew out of Jacksonville early on Wednesday morning to make sure we didn’t have any travel delays and to give us time once we were there to check out locations and map our routes. After traveling to photograph destination weddings for a few years, we’ve come up with a pretty good system to avoid any mishaps and we’ve had nothing but smooth and easy travel.
We started the day with Katie and the Aliante Casino and Hotel in the north part of Las Vegas, about 45 minutes from the Strip. Katie, her family, and her wedding party were all so fun and gave us so many opportunities for great photos. The wedding was at a beautiful home belonging to a family friend which added so much to the family focused perspective of the wedding. Even though the weather for this Las Vegas wedding was pretty hot, we had a cool breeze and great people to be with.
We also had a couple’s portrait session down at the strip at the Bellagio on the Monday after. Those photos will be up tomorrow. Check back to see them!
We were so happy to be featured on the King & Price Resort blog today. Evelyn and Zach had an amazing wedding (that I have not blogged yet, doh!) and it shows off their amazing style in a beautiful location.
I met Chas on the putting green of the Lodge, one of the most scenic places on St Simons Island. The Lodge is also home to two of Sea Island’s golf courses and the McGladrey/RSM Classic.
Chas’ and I chat about how he was going to propose in just a few minutes after Julie arrived in the Oak Room with her family–who were all in on it. We picked out a spot and planned their path from the Lodge to the awaiting roses and Champagne. With the bagpiper playing in the distance, Chas and Julie exited with smiles as big as could be. He led her by the water and when they arrived, asked her to marry him.
She said yes!
After they had some time together we walked a little bit further to take photos with the amazing sunset we were given.
Congrats Chas and Julie!
