I had the distinct honor and pleasure to fly out to Las Vegas Nevada this July to shoot an extra special wedding. Samantha and Kevin are probably two of the most easy-going people you will ever meet. In all of the emails, phone calls, and text messages between Sam and Kevin, myself, and Sam's mom Tammie to work out and finalize all the details for the wedding it was smooth sailing. I personally would have been a mess booking a photographer from clear across the country. These two were cool as cucumbers. And that relaxed attitude was present the entire time. All the way to the last kiss of the night beneath their sparkler exit.
So a few extra special details about this wedding. 1. I had never ever ever been to Vegas before. 2. The 50th floor of the Vdara Hotel has a 360 degree view to kill for. 3. Three hour time differences will mess with you. 4. I got to meet and be a part of one of the most spectacular days in the life of a cousin I only heard about in stories and saw in pictures that were a good 10 years old. :) <3
A little family history. My grandmother's oldest brother was in the service. He met and fell for a California girl. They got married, settled in California to raise their family. That brother of my grandma? Well, he's Tammie's dad, the bride Samantha's grandfather. So while we were names recognized, we'd never met.
I'd like to thank the social media juggernaut Facebook for making the world a smidgen smaller. By connecting online, Samantha and Kevin found out that I am a wedding photographer. And after following my work, decided I was the right person for their big day and I'm quite humbled by that.
Ok, without further adieu, take a peek at some of my favorite highlights from the wedding of Samantha and Kevin! Congrats again you two and Thank You for having me there to capture your big day!
