When Sheila & Matt first came in to meet with us about their wedding, after about 5 minutes of conversation I knew that I wanted to photograph this couple. Sheila & Matt have a sweet chemistry and youthful energy making moments with them full of laughter and fun. The wonderful thing is getting to witness how they absolutely adore each other. From their heartfelt vows to their cheeky Filipino money-dance battle, you can tell they are best friends in everything they do.
Rather than choosing a typical venue off the Vegas strip to hold their wedding, Sheila & Matt selected a luxurious private property where they hosted an intimate poolside ceremony. With strings of lights overhead to highlight the lively dance party, firepits to keep the evening desert chill at bay while stealing snacks at the s’mores station, it was a truly beautiful celebration. We felt incredibly lucky to be there for them.
After such a memorable night of partying, it was touch and go whether or not Sheila & Matt would have enough energy for a photo session in the Valley of Fire the day after. We decided it was an opportunity we shouldn’t let go, and I’m so glad we did it! The sunset that evening painted the sky with unbelievable colors and gave us the prettiest of all backdrops to play in.
Sheila & Matt we had so much fun with you both. Thank you for taking us on this wonderful adventure! Enjoy these images and we can’t wait to see you very soon!!
