Yan & Cheng married @ Canyon Gate Country Club


You may recall the photos from Yan and Cheng’s Las Vegas engagement session several posts ago. Having just shot their engagement photos a few short weeks before the wedding,  it felt natural documenting their special day. It was great getting to know them before the wedding and it helped to put them both at ease on the big day.

They had a lovely ceremony and reception at Canyon Gate Country Club, incorporating their Chinese heritage to make the wedding unique. As a wedding photographer in Las Vegas, I feel honored to be a part of many culturally diverse celebrations. The distinctive red and pink color scheme is traditional for Chinese weddings and makes for vibrant photographs.

It was wonderful that they trusted me to be creative. Not only were we able to capture all the memories they hoped for, but we also made a few stunning art pieces that captured the beauty of their special day. In order to create these artistic images, the bride and groom planned some extra time just after the reception began to step away and make these beautiful photographs.

Yan had three dresses and changed into a stunning red gown for the reception. The bright color combined with a beautiful setting and professional lighting truly makes these photographs pop.

Yan and Cheng, congratulations and a big thank you for sharing your day with me. Also, thanks to the following vendors for helping to make the day look, sound, and taste amazing:

Florist: Floral 2000
Cake: Las Vegas Custom Cakes
DJ: The Music Solution

Valerie & Gerard @ JW Marriott Las Vegas


Valerie and Gerard were married this spring at the beautiful JW Marriott Resort in Summerlin, a Las Vegas suburb. Although only 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip, the resort feels like a tropical paradise perfectly suited for a destination wedding.

The ceremony couldn’t have been more perfect. It was a warm, sunny day and the bride and groom both looked absolutely stunning as they exchanged vows surrounded by friends and loved ones. They also added their own unique touches like a love letter and wine box ceremony. Except instead of wine, they chose something a little more edgy. Here’s a hint: it was Jack Daniel’s.

The ceremony was followed by a cocktail hour and reception. We love that they went green with their wedding favors by giving out miniature potted succulent plants for their guests. They also created their own centerpieces which was another nice personal touch. The best part was that everyone had fun.

Vegas City DJ’s kept the party going and a delicious three-tiered wedding cake was provided by Freed’s Bakery. The gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres were created by Floral 2000. Thanks to Denise Collins from JW Marriott for keeping everything running smoothly. Finally, a big thank you to Valerie and Gerard for sharing their day with me!
