El Dorado Dry Lake Bed Engagement | Las Vegas Photographer

My gal pal Megan and I flew out to Las Vegas this past March to photograph an earring company run by another dear friend of mine. I took full advantage of being in this incredible place for the first time and set up a few shoots of my own! I’m so dang thankful that Ashley came out to the El Dorado Dry Lake Bed for a couple’s session! I sent her a message as our plane was landing for that evening, and these two came through! Their El Dorado Dry Lake Bed engagement lights my photographer soul on fire, because y’all, they BROUGHT the fire!

Ashley and Justin call Las Vegas home. They have 3 kiddos, horses, and a toooon of plants, so naturally they have their hands full. These two actually model for quite a few photographers, and I mean, have you seen them? They are so in tune with one another and complete naturals in front of the camera. Not to mention, they are so kind and ready for a good time. I get so excited when I see other photographers share images of them, they really are so incredible to work with.

We had the beeeeest weather for their El Dorado Dry Lake Bed engagement session! The sun came over the mountains in full force and gave us beautiful, golden light to soak up. If you know me, you already know that makes me do a happy dance! It amazes me how different every corner of our country is. I’m so used to the humid, green everywhere East Coast. I’ve never seen a dry lake bed in person, much less the desert landscape that surrounds Las Vegas. I can see why Ashley and Justin love this place so much, it’s so beautiful in its own unique way. I hope I can get back out to Las Vegas one of these days and soak up more of the desert, and plan even more incredible sessions like this one!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
