Wedding in the Desert With Barn and Bicycle – Destination Wedding Photographer

Another fun couple!  Here’s the second bride and groom from my Ghost Town Desert Shoot Out.  There were so many fun places to take pictures at the Nelson Nevada Ghost Town at El Dorardo Canyon.  There were mountains, fun old buildings, vintage cars, a crashed plane, cacti, a road and so much more.  It was almost overwhelmingly exciting.  I hope to go back there someday to do another shoot.  There is no end to the fun things you can do at this desert location!

Las Vegas Nelson Nevada Ghost Town Shoot – Destination Photographer

From my previous blog post, most of you are aware that I recently traveled to Las Vegas for the WPPI Photography Convention.  It was amazing!  The classes I took, the friendships I made, and the vendors I saw made the experience unforgettable!  One of the most exciting events of the week was going on something they call a “shoot-out” put on by Emma and Josh from Couture Clicks.  The theme was “Runaway Circus” and took place at the Nelson Nevada Ghost Town at El Dorado Canyon which is located about an hour outside of Las Vegas. It was a great chance to meet amazing and friendly photographers and to work side-by-side with them.  I’m so thankful for opportunity. The images below are just a few of the ones I was able to capture of one of the models.  Isn’t she gorgeous?!  I wonder if anyone would be able to guess how old she is.

Thank you to the following people for making this event possible!

Bemidji Fashion Shoot

Reflectors are cool.  I bought one months ago but never got around to using it.  So, if reflectors=cool…me not using my reflector=not cool.  Follow?

I decided that I just needed to find time and a model so I could practice and get comfortable with it.  A few days after making this decision I had someone cancel a photo session with me.  I would have been sad, but I was kind of excited.  This meant that I had  an entire evening to play with my new reflector and to try out some new techniques.  All I had to do now was to find a model.  Lucky for me I have some of the most beautiful friends in the world!  And I even got one of them to model for me!  Thank you, Samantha, for your patience with me!  You were stunning, and I had so much fun.  Also thanks to my mom.  She did an amazing job holding my new reflector.  🙂

I really love the fill light in these photos.  I think this may be a style I start incorporating into more of my shoots.  Have a happy Wednesday everyone!
