Mr and Mrs Slaven

A couple of weeks I go I went to Las Vegas to shoot Lisa and Ricky’s wedding!  Viva Las Vegas!  I’ve always wanted to shoot a wedding there.  But, seeing as I’m a natural light shooter who loves shooting outdoors, shooting in a dark casino presented it’s challenges.  However, this gave me a great opportunity to use my off camera flash and I had a ton of fun with it and I’m super excited about the images!  It’s a different look, but I think a very fun one!

Sadly, Lisa wasn’t feeling well so we didn’t get to take quite as many pictures as I would have liked.  The Wynn is amazing and I could have shot there for hours!  But, the wedding was beautiful and perfect!  The reception was held at the G Suite at the Palms. It’s a mini replica of the Ghost Bar.  How fun is that?  

Besides the beautiful location, the lovely bride and groom, and the awesome details, my most favorite part about this wedding had to be all of the British accents.  Ricky is British and so are his friends and family.  It was so much fun to hear them talk!  I know, I’m a dork, but I have a thing for accents!

Congratulations, Lisa and Richard!  I hope the honeymoon (alternate location and all) was amazing!  Here’s your slideshow!

    What an unbelievable ceremony location! Wow! I love the ring shot on the shoe heel! Congrats to the happy couple (and doggie!)!

    My favorite one is the shot of their legs where she’s holding up her dress -there’s just something about it. Great job. Fun to see how you worked with off-camera flash.

  4. Tracy says:

    How does the off camera flash work exactly? Where do you place it? I am a professional photographer, or at least I try to be, and I have a really hard time with low light situations at weddings too. I am a canon user, which I know you are as well, what tips do you have to share about this!

    Thanks in advance for your help! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your work. Look at your blogs ALL THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
