I wanted to surprise my mom and mother-in-law with some nice portraits of their grandchildren and ended up making a little fun Mother’s Day video in addition to the cute little pics we took. Check ’em out!

I always love receiving inquiries from new clients that mention another wedding that I did! Marnie and John are definitely two of the most amazing clients I have ever had, with such beautiful and caring personalities. They were so much fun to work with!  And, I had a feeling from Monique’s first email that she and Adrian were birds of the same feather. 🙂 So, here began my relationship with Monique:

“Hi Suzi, I came across your photo-shoot of Marnie and John’s wedding in Las Vegas and just loved it! The pics you have on Facebook are also amazing!! Adrian and I will be traveling to Vegas from Australia next year and was wondering if you could quote us for our wedding photography?”

This lovely couple, also from Australia, flew over with a small group of their closest friends and family. I had a great time meeting them in their hotel room for getting ready portraits, and then a first look, a little fun at the Las Vegas sign, and then back for the ceremony, some cocktails and  mingling, followed by some fun group pics in front of the Bellagio fountains.

Monique and Adrian, I had a blast hanging out with you two! Thank you so much for making me a part of your very special and fun-filled day!

xx,

Suzi

Ashley and Chris are loads of fun, and I had a great time hanging out with these two. Ashely had a really fun idea to bring her wedding planning obsession to life, with a wedding magazine extravaganza. Don’t be mistaken now, Chris played a huge role in the wedding planning too. Notice the pic where he is handing over his credit card to Ashley?

Following our Cincinnati wedding planning playtime, things were heated up a bit on the balcony by the bubbling hot tub. Pinterest actually helped us out with this fun idea, by adding in a bunch of romantic votive candles to truly set the ambiance of a romantic evening with feet dangling in the hot tub.Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (1)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (2)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (4)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (5)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (6)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (7)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (8)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (9)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (10)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (11)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (12)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (13)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (14)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (15)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (16)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (17)Cincinnati engagement wedding photographers (18)

I’m so proud of these talented young ladies – my beautiful nieces! They both are not only very beautiful and athletic, but they are extremely scholarly. Marissa is due to graduate this year as class valedictorian, and her top college pick is UC Berkley. I have full confidence that she will make it in!
Both of these girls exhibit grace, talent, good manners, and lots of hard work and dedication!
Love you girls!

One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is that I get to spend my days surrounded by beautiful people in beautiful places! Even better, it’s an entire day absolutely filled with love. Jennifer and Steven’s wedding at the fabulous Dragon Ridge Country Club in Las Vegas was no exception!

With such a dramatic background, it’s hard to compete with the natural beauty of the surroundings. There was so much love at this wedding, though, that the setting took second place to the sweetness of the event. Guests cheered as the bride and groom said ‘I do’ in a breathtaking outdoor ceremony and danced the night away in a reception that was non-stop celebration.

Photographing the events before the ceremony gives me a chance to catch some of the behind the scenes details: the loveliness of the bride’s dress, the dramatic setting of the day, the excitement in the couple’s eyes. Those moments help tell the complete story of the day and will remind the bride and groom of the care and planning that went into making this the most special day of their lives.

Watching Jennifer and Steven through the lens of my camera was so much fun – they rarely took their eyes off each other. Some special moments I captured – the bride and groom sneaking a kiss in the stairwell, a sunset kiss with a beautifully painted sky as the background, a kiss on the dance floor – now that I think about it, they rarely took their lips off each other either! So blessed to be a part of this couple’s celebration.

Every time I think being a Las Vegas wedding photographer couldn’t get any better, my next wedding proves me wrong.

Enjoy the beauty of this day with me!

Love,

Suzi

The exquisitely sparkling finale to the wedding of Mike and Crissy (pun intended). Now that our happy couple was blissfully wed, there’s nothing else left to do but snap some pictures, eat some food, and celebrate!! I simply love the Siena Golf Club for newly wed portraits. With sprawling archways, beautiful bright green grass everywhere you look and it even has a small pond with its own wooden bridge. There are just so many choices; it’s easy to get so carried away with the bride and groom, it could make a wedding planner nervous to stay on schedule. Mike and Crissy looked nothing less than picturesque posing by the pond enjoying themselves, taking every opportunity to share their love for each other with a kiss. Inside, the reception area was lavishly decorated with crystal chandelier centerpieces and myriad of pink and white. Candy stations are always a big hit, because “love is sweet, so please take a treat”. The bouquet and garter belt toss went right into the hands of the best man and maid of honor almost as if it was planned, but that didn’t slow down the celebration of this lively bunch. Once everyone had their fill of gourmet cuisine and dancing it was time to send the bride and groom off on their new life together and what a sendoff it was! All the guests lined up with sparklers in hand for what was one of the most spectacular exits I have ever witnessed. With the help of their friends and family Mike and Crissy created the perfect ending to this perfect wedding that was simply illuminating. I wish Mike and Crissy the best of life from the bottom of my heart, and am thrilled I was able to work with such a wonderful group of people. Thank you so much!!!

Picking up where we left off in the previous post, after Crissy and Mike finished up getting ready at the JW Marriott, they headed over to their wedding venue, Siena Golf Club. The day was was perfect. The weather was perfect. The moments were perfect! After a few touch-ups in the dressing room, the couple prepared for their first look in the courtyard at Siena Golf Course. It was so sweet, and believe me, it didn’t take away one little bit from Mike seeing Crissy come down the aisle either, because he was bawling like a baby. Okay, well, perhaps not “bawling,” but he definitely shed some tears and had a very emotional time. The ceremony was extra special with a butterfly release at the end of the ceremony!

Love this couple and their family! Crissy shares a bond with her mother that is just amazing, and I must say how impressed with the love this family shares for one another. Crissy’s mom did an INCREDIBLE job! I feel blessed to have been a part of this wedding and capture all of the love! Thank you for allowing me to share my vision of the day with you!

I find it sooo refreshing and exhilarating being in the company of two young lovers that have decided to make the commitment to spend the rest of their lives together! Mike and Crissy are both fantastic people just bubbling to the brim with admiration for one another, and their beautiful contemporary wedding was the perfect reflection of those feelings. Preparation for the ceremony took place at Summerlin’s very own J.W. Marriot. The atmosphere of extravagance was fitting for Crissy’s magnificent long flowing wedding dress that looked almost as gorgeous on the hanger as it did on her. Spending his last few minutes before marriage Mike spent his time passionately rewriting his vows and preparing his best man to deliver Crissy’s wedding day gift. This wedding was so inspiring I’ve decided to break it up into a series of blogs, so stick around to see how exciting the ceremony and reception was!!!
