Meet Cate + Niko, a local couple who originally hails from upstate New York. For their Las Vegas engagement session, they wanted to escape the summer heat by heading up to Mt. Charleston, but still honor the beauty of their new desert home. We found the perfect mix by starting in the tall pines at Lee Canyon for the first half of the shoot, and heading down to the desert wilderness at the base of the mountain for the second half of the shoot. When most Las Vegans think of our beautiful desert landscape, they automatically go to Red Rock Canyon, but I’m telling you, there are so many other gorgeous places to capture that landscape and my favorite is around the Mt. Charleston area! I am a huge fan of low, glowing sun, joshua trees and romance. When shooting at Mt. Charleston, you can do a shoot with 1) all greenery, 2) half greenery/half desert, or 3) all desert!
If you couldn’t tell from these examples, Cate and Niko are super photogenic and simply a breeze to photograph. I cannot wait to be a part of their 2021 wedding at Red Rock Country Club! Beauty by Amelia C & Co.
