Sand Dunes Engagement Session | Nevada Wedding Photographer

The minute the flight to Las Vegas was booked, I dove into planning a sand dunes engagement session. I’ve seen so many incredible sessions at the sand dunes out west and they are so dang inspiring! I’m sad the east coast doesn’t have rolling dunes like these, I’d never leave them. Thankfully I connected with Kim through this giant web of photographers, and we put together this dreamy sand dunes engagement shoot.

Would you believe that Nevada only gets rain a handful of times a year? Well, as luck would have it, the weather wasn’t looking so hot on the day we planned for. The area floods pretty quickly when heavy rain rolls in, and it can easily turn deadly. Our original plan was to use the sand dunes in Death Valley National Park, but we moved it at the last minute to avoid any potential danger from the incoming storm. We had the Amargosa Valley sand dunes alllll to ourselves, cue heart eyes!

I’m so thankful Kim + Tony came out to have this shoot with me. They’ve built a life together, had some adorable kiddos, and are living their best life in Nevada. Plus, Kim is also a talented photographer, and I loved chatting with her about her journey. I also have to thank them for letting us hitch a ride in their truck out to the dunes. Pro tip: Do nooooot go out there without a heavy duty 4×4 vehicle, TRUST ME.

All in all, I couldn’t have asked for a better time with these two lovebirds. It was a lovely afternoon of laughter, exploring, and creating some incredible art. Enjoy my favorites from their sand dunes engagement session!

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!"
