It seems like whenever someone mentions a Las Vegas Wedding or Engagement, most people think of the bright city lights, modern architecture or maybe even the Bellagio Fountains. What most people don’t know is the incredible landscapes that surround the Las Vegas Valley! Just 30 minutes outside the strip is an almost otherworldly location! It consists of Red Rock Mountains, lush flowing rivers, a beautiful lake and even ancient volcanoes.
Logan and Corey contacted us before visiting Las Vegas to attend the Marine Corp Ball. They wanted an engagement photoshoot that wasn’t the typical Vegas themed photos you always see. Instead they wanted mountains and landscapes so obviously we were excited to avoid the Las Vegas Strip! We took the two of them to one of our favorite places in the valley.
We love our adventurous couples!
Thankfully these two were willing to go on a short hike with us up a mountain. For this short hike they were awarded with the gorgeous views below as their backdrop! It seems like everybody we take to this location says they feel like they landed on Mars. Also, sunsets in the Southwest very rarely disappoint… Turquoise blue skies are often accented by pinks and purples but this night was a special treat for a special engagement. As the sun began to set we witnessed probably the most vibrant flourescent oranges and reds we’d ever seen!
I just couldn’t stop shooting. Every few minutes the sky changed a different color. Finally the sun tucked behind the mountains and I knew it would be getting dark soon. So we finished up the shoot and started hiking back towards the car before it got dark. They asked to stop multiple times along the hike back just to take in the views. We sure do love our adventurous couples!
These two are getting married in Pittsburg, PA and we wish them happily ever after!
