Destination Wedding Photography in the mountains

Some Destination Wedding Photography in the mountains.  The ceremony and reception venue was Mt. Charleston Lodge with a mailing address of Las Vegas.  Everyone stayed lower on the mountain at The Resort on Mount Charleston.  The Lodge is most of an hour drive north and west of Vegas.  The terrain obviously changes as the road rises to 7500 feet and it took me a while to realize we were at altitude with being out of breath after going up and down a few flights of stairs.

This is the second wedding for both the bride and groom and they were both very relaxed and easy to work with.  The bride has a very organized daughter that took care of most of the scheduling, timing changes and details.

It was a pretty simple day. I started in the bride’s room where the girls got ready with hair and makeup from a team from Las Vegas. It was a very relaxed time with a bit of bubbly flowing.  The guys were ready well in advance and spent time in the lobby waiting for the day to start.  I went outside into the glaring mountain sunshine a photographed the groom, best man and other groomsmen.  We next had the bride come out for the first look, some tears.  I next photographed the bride with her maid of honor and other bridesmaids, the couple with mountain backdrop and the wedding party.

The wedding party and guests went up the mountain a bit to the ceremony and reception site.  The ceremony was lovely and the reception was a very casual, good food, many friends and family and even some dancing.  We were able to get out a bit after sunset for an epic shot of the couple with a late sunset mountains background.

I love traveling for Destination Wedding Photography.  Go to beautiful places and photograph people wearing their best, having a good time.
