A brick wall, a fence, couple of columns, a trees in the park, a bridge, all gave a great background for Huong & Brian’s wedding images!
We had a great time during the session.

Kathryn and Ryan’s Photo session on the Strip. We stopped by at the Venetian Hotel and made sure to take some images by the Bellagio Fountains.
I posted all sepia images! I just fall in love with them!
The couple met in Kazakhstan, where Gulnaz was living and Albert worked for a couple of years. Love on the fist sight…
Albert & Gulnaz got married in the Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Before their ceremony, we made their day memorable with images on the Las Vegas Strip.

Dmitry & Iveta traveled all the way from Riga, Latvia to Las Vegas to tie the knot. Actually they spent a month to travel all around the country and in the middle of the trip they reached Las Vegas, the wedding capital of the world. They started to plan their wedding months before they traveled to the US.
After their small, cozy downtown Las Vegas wedding ceremony, VIP limousine picked us up from Vdara Hotel, where they were staying.
We stopped at beautiful Las Vegas locations, like Venetian Hotel, Bellagio, Mirage and the Las Vegas Sign to make their wedding day memorable. At the Las Vegas sign we even catch Elvis with his pink Cadillac.
My favorite images of our fabulous Day:
Beautiful garden, romantic flowing willow trees and picturesque panoramic view of Lake Jacqueline made perfect backdrop to Brittany & Matthew’s wedding. A perfect oasis in the desert.

Henderson couple Cameron and Tammy Stay, who are both confined to wheelchairs, have faced many obstacles in their lives.
But when it came to their honeymoon, a donation from 1-800-Registry, a company that specializes in honeymoons and travel, made their dreams come true by providing a weekend to remember.
“It’s been so overwhelming the last few months (with all we have received),” Tammy said. “We have to sit back and remind ourselves that we deserve this.”
Tammy has been in her chair for 17 years, while Cameron has been in his for seven.
The couple met in 2009 at an Abilities Expo in California. Cameron said he was infatuated with Tammy at first sight and introduced himself during the conference.
Even though Tammy was dating someone at the time, the couple stayed in touch.
Tammy moved to Las Vegas in April 2011 for a job. Trying to make friends in town, she reconnected with Cameron, who already lived here.
“He courted me for three months,” Tammy said.
Tammy said she saw something in Cameron, but she wasn’t ready to start dating.
“And then one morning, I just woke up and knew I was ready,” Tammy said.
Cameron said the biggest challenge of dating was planning ahead to accommodate their disabilities.
“We have to plan out the logistics for everything,” Cameron said.
Even though she was laid off from her job a couple of months after moving to Las Vegas, Tammy said she knew everything had happened for a reason.
About six months after they started dating, Cameron proposed.
“After eight months in the hospital (after the accident), I had lot of time to think about my life and dreams,” Cameron said. “I literally had to rewrite the majority of my dreams. I never envisioned somehow finding true love.”
As they planned their wedding, the couple kept stumbling on opportunities to have a dream wedding and honeymoon.
The couple found an organization called Wish Upon a Wedding, a nonprofit that gives weddings to couples with either debilitating diseases or who have gone through life-altering circumstances. They applied for a grant and were interviewed by the Las Vegas chapter.
Cameron said they were the third couple in Las Vegas to receive it. Wish Upon a Wedding paid for a 50-person wedding on April 19.
In January, the couple were at a bridal expo when they inadvertently met the CEO of 1-800-Registry.
“I had know idea he was the CEO,” Tammy said. “He was just so nice and laid-back.”
Tammy told him the couple probably weren’t going to take a honeymoon right away primarily because of expenses. They also mentioned they were going to look into a staycation because Las Vegas has many attractions, many of which are wheelchair-accessible.
“There are so many great things in our backyard we don’t experience,” Tammy said.
Tammy and Cameron were shocked when the CEO decided to donate the honeymoon.
They celebrated their honeymoon June 8-10 by staying at Bellagio and seeing “Blue Man Group” and “The Beatles Love,” a Cirque du Soleil show.
Cameron said one of the highlights of the weekend was going behind the stage of “Love” and meeting the cast.
“It was like having celebrity status,” Cameron said.
Tammy, who is involved with the disability community and is the Nevada state coordinator for Ms. Wheelchair Nevada, said the couple appreciate everything that has been done for them. She hopes to share her story to inspire others.
“We are just average people who happened to find love,” Tammy said. “We both have our challenges. We want our story to inspire people. It doesn’t matter who you are. Never give up on finding love.”

Lisa & Kyle got married at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas Wedding Chapel. Las Vegas Photographer Kristen Joy started the photo session, taking getting ready images of Lisa before the ceremony and I continued after the ceremony. Lisa & Kyle didn’t not want typical Vegas photos and they enjoyed the artsy style photos. We started the photo session at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and went over to the Fountain Terrace at the Four Season Hotel with their family and the wedding party.
After the photo session we walked over to the Border Grill, where the reception took place. Here is a couple of images from their wedding:
While Michele was checking to see if there was a full moon on their wedding night, she found out that on that date, on May 20, 2012, there was going to be an Annular Solar Eclipse. We moved the ceremony back a half an hour, since the height of the eclipse would be in the middle of the ceremony.
We weren’t sure what to expect, what is going to happen with the light during this unique event, but we were ready!
We didn’t notice much from the Eclipse, just the light, the sky was a little more interesting, more vivid around Lake Las Vegas. ☺ They will always remember for sure, that they got married on the day of the Annular Solar Eclipse!
How did they meet?….
Johnny first met Michele back in 2007. She was a friend of his sister Heidi. Johnny moved away for a while and moved back to Vegas. Soon they ended up getting together by taking a trip to Venice Beach California. They connected right away…
How did he proposed?…
He proposed on the gondola at Lake Las Vegas in Feb 2011. He told her it was a Valentines Day surprise so she wouldn’t get suspicious. The proposal was in a note in a wine bottle floating in the lake. (the gondola company helped Johnny with this) and she plucked it out of the water and opened the note in the bottle. She was beyond surprised!!
What they love to do together?
They love to watch movies together, try new restaurants and travel together.
Why did they pick Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort to get married?
They picked Lake Las Vegas to tie the knot, because they got engaged there, and because of the beautiful scenery.
Their ceremony was at Lotus Court and their reception at the Rick’s Café at the Westin Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort.
Here are a couple of images from Michele & Johnny’s Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort Wedding:
One of the most beautiful wedding locations in Las Vegas, Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort a very nice couple, Lisa & Jason and the chance to be the second photographer on the wedding, to spend quite a few time with Jason, the groom and his groomsman while they were getting ready, capture all the details on the reception and during the photo session of Lisa & Jason.
