Allison + Chris are one of those couples that you not only feel blessed to work with, but blessed to know in general. They take life only as serious as it needs to be, laugh till they cry and show passion for each other. Anyone who wants to take a lesson on how to not stress and enjoy your wedding day, buy these two a cup of coffee and hear what they have to say. During our final pre-wedding meeting, I asked about their shot list and Allison said “Let’s just go with whatever we feel like.” I replied, “Sure, sounds good,” but inside, I was jumping for joy! I love working with laid-back people, and I love couples that really get what a wedding should be – a celebration! And that’s exactly what their day was.
They were married at the absolutely beautiful Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort. We started with getting ready shots in the amazing suite they had for the weekend. The puppy featured below sincerely thought she was the bride, and was front and center the whole time we were doing photos, conveniently walking across Allison’s dress at the perfect moment. The other little one is Allison & Chris’s seriously adorable daughter, who I’ve been delighted to photograph again for holiday portraits. Ceremony and reception were both in the Lotus Court, with a fun cocktail hour in between. Their signature drink was none other than Budweiser. Guests and wedding party alike were dancing the night away long after my work was done. I feel honored to have worked with Allison & Chris, and my take away lesson from their wedding is above all else, have fun with your life!
I thought this was the coolest idea EVER! A polaroid board guest book where everyone signed their photo. Allison took one of me…
