It has been a dream of mine to execute a shoot in the desert. Stark contrasts, endless horizons, beauty in the middle of nothing intrigued me.
I had my opportunity last week when I was in Las Vegas for WPPI - an international wedding photography convention. A fellow CT wedding photographer, Leslie Gomez and her husband Carlos were also coming to Las Vegas. For the past few months we discussed doing a shoot in CT - it was pretty easy to convince them to move our shoot to the dry lake bed just outside of Las Vegas.
I also called on one of our amazing couples that we photographed lat year. Nia and Nigel live just a few hours away from Las Vegas and came out - with her wedding dress and his tux and we shot in the deserts of Nevada and Arizona until the fear of the dark chased us away. Both days were amazing experiences, the backdrops were amazing but were second to the love and interaction of the couples. I can't wait do do it again next year.
