Being a wedding photographer means you get to meet a lot of different people, but being a wedding photographer in Las Vegas means you get to meet couples from all over the world. Jodie & Craig travelled all the way from Scotland to get married in Las Vegas, and we were lucky enough to get to be their friends, witnesses and photographers that day! Below is their video - which was just so much fun to get to capture and edit together for them!
Their day started in their hotel room, as most do... but with a twist! First looks are always so funny when the couple is eloping and staying in the room together because while Jodie was getting her hair and makeup done, Craig was banished to the bathroom. We showed up, set up a little studio with a backdrop in their hotel room, and got to work. We only had a few minutes to capture what we needed because hair and makeup was an hour behind... another reason to book that early because HMU is always the #1 reason weddings run behind.
After that we headed to the chapel for an intimate ceremony at the Sure Thing Chapel. For those who haven't heard, there is a new chapel on the block. We've been getting to capture elopements there for about 2 years now and it's definitely for those couples who want something really special and intimate. It's cute, kitschy, pink, and actually runs on schedule LOL.
After that, we headed out to eat all together. We don't often get to hang out with our couples, but since Jodie had booked the chapel for earlier in the day, we definitely had some time to kill before golden hour, so we had suggested we take a little break and get a quick bite to eat. It was so much fun to get to celebrate with them and enjoy the amazing food at Carson Kitchen in Downtown Las Vegas!
After that, we headed back out for some amazing golden hour portraits, featuring our favorite rooftop parking garage that makes it look like the entire Vegas skyline has been lit up gold! Nothing quite it, being above the noise of the city, with the entire place to ourselves and perfect weather. Truly a Vegas treat!
