Although I am very happy with how my wedding turned out (missing pants and hairstylists and all) sometimes I just see something that makes me go “I want a do-over!” Today’s shoot from Ella Gagiano made me do just that. This couple eloped in Vegas all the way from New Zealand. I’m so happy they got such stunning photos to show off after the event.
The colors of the Neon Museum, the emotion, her dress, the simple sexiness of everything. Love it.
There are some more gorgeous photos on Ella’s blog.

Last Wednesday I shared a totally sweet engagement photo shoot at Lake Las Vegas. Today is another engagement shoot at the brand new Smith Center in downtown Vegas. This area has made leaps and bounds in recent years and has become a popular spot for photo shoots of weddings and otherwise. Modern architecture, bright colors and other elements make up some stunningly original backdrops.
LorenzFoto got this sexy couple to pose in front of the Smith Center for the Arts and the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. I love that they incorporated their initials in one of the photos. So easy to turn that into a Save the Date card design!
Some more photos from this hot engagement shoot are over here at LorenzFotos’ blog!
This totally adorable elopement comes to us today from Carmen Salazar, a photographer from Sacramento.
This December event features not just one but two Elvises (Elvii??), tequila shots, amazing photos taken on the colorful backdrops in downtown Las Vegas’ Arts District and some gorgeous isolated desert photos. What a beautiful range of images, and what a fun looking couple. I cannot get over the bride’s amazing boots.
The event was completely spontaneous, and was live broadcast on the internet so their moms could watch. The bride writes: “We had never planned on eloping but there just never seemed to be a perfect time to have a wedding, so we thought about it and decided to just do it ourselves in Vegas…”
I love the mini-shoot they did in the Arts District. It’s an amazing part of downtown Las Vegas, and is a place you should totally check out. It’s a favorite spot for photographers to go to for spunky engagement shots.
Stephanie’s boots were borrowed from her sister, and they are “Old Gringos.” Her dress and shawl were borrowed from the photographer.
