Samantha + Teddy are getting married this weekend! I’m truly so excited to be a part of their big day at JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa and I can’t wait to make some amazing memories for them, especially considering how fun their e-session was. These two live in Oregon but grew up in Las Vegas. They wanted their photoshoot to reflect what they like to do most in their hometown: explore cool places and hit up their favorite lounges after dark. We started their downtown Las Vegas engagement session with photos against colorful murals painted onto old buildings and abandoned hotels. Afterwards, we walked to Commonwealth (Samantha and Teddy’s favorite downtown bar), got some cocktails and headed to the roof for photos right as the sun set and the neon lights started to come on. Samantha + Teddy shared a private dance under the bistro lights and sipped their swanky drinks in style – moscow mule for her, old fashioned for him.
Scroll through a few of the photos below and you’ll see one thing in common: they love to laugh. During the shoot, I would occasionally try to create a serious moment, then Samantha would look over at Teddy and both would burst into laughter. For a photographer that loves to capture real emotion… it was truly amazing. Above all else, I love to photograph people that have a good time together and simply enjoy being in each other’s company. It makes the photoshoot natural and carefree and the images end up being a true reflection of the couple’s personality. Samantha + Teddy’s wedding is lining up to be just as fun and I simply can’t wait to photograph them again!
