taylor & colby - a dreamy valley of fire elopement

Sometimes the weather is absolutely perfect for weddings and others are... umm not. This particular day it was freezing, windy and raining. The clouds ended up giving us this beautiful backdrop among the giant red rocks, and I mean, kind of went with their color scheme! Eloping in the desert is kind of like that, you get what you get and you just have to make the best of it. 

These two are film makers, have a dog named Walter White and love each other deeply. The kind of love that's got a good weight to it and radiates around them. The kind you can feel from the moment you meet them together. They had their best friend officiate for them, and he started with "Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to get through this thing called life" and he went down in history as the coolest best friend of all time.  They shared intimate vows and then we wandered and froze our faces off, but managed to freeze many beautiful moments in time as well. I'm so thankful for brave, easy going couples like these two! xo!

nicole & josh - the new years eve eve wedding

Weddings should be a celebration of love, and that's exactly what Nicole and Josh planned for their day. Not to mention they got married the night before New Years Eve and they rented out a nightclub to do it up right! They invited all of the people that love and adore them and their day was so damn beautiful! Nicole's vision was brought to life by an incredible team and I was so happy to be a part of it all.

felicity & mark - a sophisticated las vegas rooftop elopement

I fall a little bit in love with all of my couples. Not like in a creepy way, but it's just so easy for me to see how they love each other. As a wedding photographer, I get to see the side of people that maybe not everyone else gets to see. Since I do so much encouraging on them being in their own little world, I get this peek into how they love each other. Which makes it pretty easy to fall in love with their love. I love love, if you can't tell. 

Felicity and Mark were no different. And on top of their love being so apparent for one another, they aced the elopement game. Their style was impeccable and the details of the day were so well thought out. 

We ended up rooftop at my favorite spot for a sunset ceremony with Victoria of FloraPop. They popped champagne and danced in the smoke bombs and then we ventured around in the lights before we went our separate ways. This day was pure magic, enjoy!

dee & boyd- a legendary neon museum wedding

This wedding started out at The Flamingo and ended in the desert with a much deserved preroll from one of the dispensaries! They tied the know at The Neon Museum with some close friends and family and then we cruised to the desert to catch the sunset. This wedding was one for the books!

PS- the bride painted the back of that jacket HERSELF! Heart eyes forevs

holly & gabe - an intimate at home session

There's some special about at home sessions, be it families or couples or whatever. It's even more special when your home looks like this! 

You might recognize Holly as part of the FloraPop team or maybe you follow her and all of her incredible art on Instagram. She's an all around creator and so damn good at it. It's no wonder their house is aesthetic perfection.

On top of the overall look of their images, Holly and Gabe are straight up couple goals. Their love is overflowing and their light is contagious. So stoked I got to document them in their first home weeks before they tied the knot!

jackie & chris - bright and happy downtown las vegas elopement

I'm gonna try not to get sappy here but this wedding will always hold a super special place in my heart. This wedding took place on October 2, the day after the tragedy that shook our city. That entire morning was so somber and dark. I remember checking in with them to make sure they were alright, I knew they were here with their little girl and I couldn't imagine how terrified they must have been. The night before their wedding nonetheless. I was a little worried that maybe they might want to delay and I wasn't really sure how I felt going into the session. It always feels difficult to celebrate, be happy - during such a dark time. 

Immediately upon arrival, I knew they had made the right choice to celebrate love, happiness, life. To have let the terror and sadness displace that would have been a great tragedy in itself. We briefly spoke of the events that happened the night before but decided that speaking on their life and love was a much better use of our energy. We celebrated and they brought so much light into our city! I'm forever thankful for these two for the reminder that love is truly everything. 

We started outside of the chapel with their close family and friends. I love a close knit group of people there to celebrate the ones they love!

Shortly after, we started to wander downtown and we ended our time together on my favorite rooftop and then with a fancy cocktail before I sent them on their way to go party.

Their love and energy was totally infectious and I'm pretty sure at one point, Chris told me "this is exactly what we do at home" as they were just being sweet as hell to each other. I knew he was being serious because they were expert level lovers. 

I adore these images and I hope you all do too!

family sessions!

I don't post much of amy family portraiture because it's not my main focus ( and a girl is trying to squeeze everything she can out of free advertisement aka Instagram!)

I absolutely love documenting families though and it's that time of year to make a little bit of room for it!

I am certainly not a super posed family photographer, so if you're looking for rigid posing or nonstop direction, I am definitely not your girl. However, if you are comfortable being silly and having fun with your kids and partner.. Let's do this!!!

I will be opening up spots weekly (hopefully!) and decided I should form an interest list so my clients don't have to worry about missing an Instagram post or something :)

Family sessions are $400 and last roughly an hour. This price includes any location within 25 miles of the greater Las Vegas area and all of your processed digital images. I always include full print release and hour sessions usually end up being 75-150 images. If this is something you're interested in-  shoot me an email here: (no commitment necessary)
