The first time I met Liya, we were both enthusiastic undergrads just looking for the next great adventure with some great new people. Almost 20 years later, I find myself partying with her, her family and her new husband in California.
She's one of the few people who I've climbed mountains with in college. We spent some great nights in weird situations that included chickens, cliffs, curfews, utilizing swimming pools in manners not usually suggested... I am blessed to have kept her friendship and even more blessed to be there to tell the story of her big day with Amir.
I wish them both nothing but the best. I know in my heart that they will keep each other smiling.

He wasn't supposed to tell her that he can call her when the prescriptions were ready, but he did anyway.
May wedding chapels on the strip provide off site photos sessions. These are photos sessions done outside of the chapel property. They include shoots along Las Vegas Boulevard with the iconic skyline of the Strip in the background, shoots around downtown Las Vegas and the Welcome to Las Vegas sign and shoots around town like Valley of Fire and Nelsons Landing Ghost town area.
The packages include copyrights to a set number of photos. There's also an option to buy all the images after the photos are proofed on delivery.
I have shot on the strip many times and have found multiple locations that everyone enjoys having photos done at. I've also shot for both The Little White Chapel and The Chapel of Flowers in the past 10 years so I've had the opportunity with a large volume of work on the Strip and around the city.
My favorite shoots are around Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire. Please let me know if you have a new locations in mind so we can personalize your shoot for you!

I've always loved taking photos of people very close to me. Ice and Jon are no exception. I've known Ice since she was five years old. We went to the same school and practically grew up side by side. She is a very close friend of my brother, so It made shooting their portraits and wedding even more important to me.
We started our day very early at around 6am. We caught the sun rise over the whole Bay overlooking the Golden Gate. Before we even had our first bite of anything, we had already finished shooting at the Muir Woods. The ceremony was at the San Francisco City Hall. To say that the place is impressive is an understatement. Its architecture reminded of the Pantheon in Paris.
The ceremony was how we all imagined it to be - simple and beautiful.
We kept shooting around the city after the ceremony. Ice and Jon are soon leaving for the North Carolina and I want them to bring with them some photos that will remind them of not just their first day as husband and wife but also of home.
Nothing beats a great wedding when your closest friends and your beautiful family is there for you. This is what I saw and experienced during Brenton and Teresa's wedding in Henderson overlooking the Strip. Aside from the flower girl,who I think stole the show, my favorite new friends are their grandparents. I wish Brenton and Teresa and their whole family nothing but the best - with family and friends like theirs, their ride will be an amazing one!
Here's some of the highlights from that amazing day.
March 9, 2016
San Dimas Gold Course, Southern California
The couple's charming appeal and their easy going friends made the night one that will be talked about for a long time. Being one of the first of their friends to tie the knot, these two showed that you can have an amazing wedding while keeping to what simply reminds everyone of who you are.
We wish them both an amazing life together. Thank you for making us a part of your beautiful day!
The most expensive investment you may make on your wedding day is the cheaper photographer.
I've had hundreds of different correspondences with many potential clients throughout the years. Many of them ask very compelling questions, most of which become easier and easier to answer as years go by. Most clients, even though they may not be aware of it can read if you are confident of your answer or not. The questions may range from asking about the importance of a second photographer to how the products are delivered and even to editing out wrinkles.
The reason I think it becomes easier to answer is basically experience. This is one factor that most clients tend to overlook the most but is probably the most important factor of all.
In the immortal words of Jeremy Clarkson "How hard can it be?". A bride and groom or their parents can say, "Well, I can take great photos on my iphone, look!" or "my cousin dabbles in photography and has this fancy expensive camera, maybe she can shoot it."
Think of it this way - and no, I won't be using the doctor analogy... Every photographer with a website can and will show their best work. It could be their best work from the past year, or their best work from the last ten years. But when you interview your wedding photographer, the one who you want to capture the most beautiful moments of your most important day, you want to know about their experience, their familiarity with weddings, how many weddings and portraits have they shot and their confidence level with their craft.
That is very important. If you are going to spend $600 on a photographer and you end up with photos you are not particularly proud of - there goes your $600.
A very good and very experienced photographer will have harnessed the instinct and intuition and the right talent to move seamlessly during the ceremony, work well with everyone from you to your grandma, resolve an issue before it even happens, not panic if it does and not just keep a smile on your face but also on his or her because he enjoys his work so much and it shows in his product.
The most expensive investment you may make on your wedding day is the cheaper photographer. Do not be afraid to speak to your photographer about pricing. We will be able to work with you to make sure that we capture the best moments of your wedding day.
When all's said and done, years from now, when you look back at the photos, we want you to smile and remember how much fun you had - not how much of a bad decision you made because you went for the photographer that costs a few hundred bucks less.

Let's get hitched in Vegas!
It should be an easy proposition. It is actually. compared to other places. As long as:
A. You are both free to legally marry each other.
B. Well that's it really.
To get married in Las Vegas, much like in any other place, you will need to obtain a marriage license. Here, you can get that license 365 days of the year. The Regional Justice Center has the Marriage Licence Bureau that is open from 8am to 12 midnight every day of the week. Sometimes they open for 24 hours, but those are for special days.
The address to the Clark County Marriage License Bureau is
301 Clark Street, Las Vegas, NV
Both parties will need government issued identification. Driver's license for US residents and Passports for foreign applicants are accepted.
You will need the marriage license in order to have the marriage performed. After the ceremony, the marriage license will be submitted to the Clark County Recorder's office and then it will be official. Your actually marriage certificate will then be issued soon after.
