Cool & Creative Wedding Photography

When Imogen approached me regarding photographing her destination wedding in Las Vegas, I instantly jumped at the chance of photographing her and Steve – I knew this was going to be a rock n roll wedding full of personality & SO cool to photograph!

Imogen got ready in style at the Bellagio Resort & Casino, over looking incredible views of Vegas and the fountains below. She wore a stunning lace dress made by For Love & Lemon that showed off her tattoos. Paired with a vintage white leather jacket, hand painted by one of her friends.

Rock n Roll Wedding

She then made her way to the The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel where she entered the chapel in true rock n roll style  – being driven by Elvis in a pink Cadillac! The wedding ceremony was amazing and unlike any others I’ve seen – it involved dry ice, some hit songs sang by Elvis and the whole wedding party dancing at the alter! Unfortunately due to restrictions I wasn’t allowed to photograph this part of the day. However it really set everyone in a great mood ready for the rest of the day and was amazing to watch.

Imogen & Steve then headed over to the Stratosphere Hotel, where the guests enjoyed a few thrill rides before sitting down for dinner at a 1950s retro singing dinner. Again this was great fun and really fitted in with their unique wedding day so far.

Smoke Bomb Wedding Portraits

We had discussed beforehand the idea of ‘nipping’ to the desert after the wedding breakfast to do a couples photo shoot. Despite it being a bit of a long drive we decided to go for it & boy was it worth it! We arrived in the desert just in time for sunset – the yellow smoke bombs perfectly complimented the sun and gave the images a beautiful warm hue. We were quite short on time and spent less than 10 minutes shooting – It was all we needed though. I absolutely adore these photos and I’m so glad they trusted me and drove all the way out to the desert.

Imgoen & Steve ended their wedding day at a rock show at the Brooklyn Bowl, where Imogen full bride-mode stormed the stage for the finale. They then staggered on to a coyote bar, where Imogen and her girls danced the night away.
