I am so excited to be posting Hayden & Billy’s wedding from the Aria Resort and Casino today! This wedding has been circled on my calendar for quite some time and this couple is the absolute best! Back in October of last year I met with Hayden & Billy at Biltmore Estate for an EPIC engagement session that you can see here. This couple is truly electric on camera! For me, this is what it is all about – capturing the love two people have for one another. Given how awesome their engagement session was, I knew that their Vegas wedding was going to be outstanding! Let me tell you, this wedding was one of the most memorable I have experienced in my 11-years as a wedding photographer. I arrived in Vegas the day before the wedding and had a great time scouting locations for the wedding day. The Aria Resort is simply amazing and the hard part (like Biltmore Estate) is trying to narrow down where you want to shoot given all the incredible places that the property has to offer. I knew I wanted to bring in some of the glitz and bold lighting that you see in Las Vegas, so we achieved that inside Aria, as well as on the strip in front of the Bellagio Fountains! I also wanted to bring in some lush greenery, flowers, etc., and the Aria Sky Pool provided plenty of that! Finally, I always try to find water (ponds, lakes, fountains, etc.) to add to the background. Luckily, Aria has an amazing cascading wall of water right in front of the resort. Hayden and Billy looked great and these images are so much fun! I even got a little artsy and used a prism to create some one-of-a-kind images that look like double-exposures. I loved this wedding and the laid-back family feel of the day left an indelible impression on me, something I will never forget! Hayden and Billy, thank you for having me document your Las Vegas wedding. I was very honored to be there to capture the mood, the love, the family, and all the important moments from your wedding day! Congrats and best wishes!!!
Ashley Cox - You both are so ridiculously good looking!!! So happy for you both. May you have a beautiful future together.
