It sometimes takes moving away to understand how beautiful a place is. I grew up in Las Vegas and loved traveling and seeing beautiful new places. I never saw Las Vegas as beautiful. Then when I moved to Florida, I remember meeting local photographers (who are now my dear and close friends) who grew up in Florida and saw no beauty in it. How!?! There were lakes and forest and green everywhere! Vegas was just buildings on top of roads with a few scattered palm trees brought in. I didn’t get it.
Then I moved back to Las Vegas, and how I missed and craved the mountains and the dessert! Cactus can photograph so pretty and people can from far to see our red rock mountains and the breath taking valley of fire! And shooting at the dry lake beds is even dreamier than the white sand at beaches. And of course, there is Mount Charleston! Which has a different kind of beauty each season! The beautiful forest trees combined with valley and views of the different peeks make this a photographer’s dreamland!
The venue is beautiful for any wedding, but it was truly perfect for Lyndsi and Jeffs wedding. They were able to set up their aerial rig for their aerial performance and a trampoline for Jeff’s performance. And there were wild horses often roaming the area! Adding in the nature backdrop of their ceremony location and the tent for their circus themed wedding, this truly was a dream wedding!
