Timing is everything.
This young dad was throwing his kid gently up in the air, right in front of Lake Como at the Bellagio. The kid was looking around everywhere but my camera, as you can imagine. On the third throw, for whatever reason, the baby looked over at me and in that split second I pushed the shutter button: *SNAP*
Whatever came before and whatever comes after doesn’t matter when it comes to the world of photography. The only thing that matters is the present, what is happening right then at that exact moment, that moment when all the ducks are in a row and you snap that perfect pic. That quest for perfection and the perfect picture is why I love photography!
For example, look at the other versions of this picture below... they both work, but they are both missing that magical connection that exists in the other version. That little spark is what makes the other one special.
Taking pictures is like fishing. Many of the fish you catch are fine, they’ll get the job done, but every so often, when everything aligns, you finally catch the big one, the one that didn’t get away.
To me, the picture above is one of those Big Fish.
Who’s ready to go fishing with me?
I took this shot at the top of the escalators on the northwest corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Flamingo. The key to the shot is my 14mm wide angle lens that really opens up the photo to include almost 180° Of the view. Of course we took many different versions of this photo but I love the one that shows the full body. The way the groom holds his new wife flatters her figure and connects the both of them.
Who’s ready for the next photo shoot?
Had a blast with a really fun newlywed couple exploring the Vegas Strip at night. The Bellagio fountains and our city of lights provided an electric background for our shoot. I love bringing my 14mm wide angle lense for the shot from the top of the escalators outside of Caesars Palace. The lense came in handy at the Bellagio valet area, too! Who’s ready for the next strip shoot? Text me at (702) 767-9248 to get started!
Andre and Mary are from Philadelphia and traveled out to Vegas for their wedding. We shot a few snaps at Circus Curcus and I fell in love with the hotel’s outdoor lighting! The marquee and its lights are vintage Vegas. We followed it up the next day with a shoot around Bellagio and Caesars. Very fun shoot, I loved getting to know the couple and trying to translate their relationship into still images. Congrats on the wedding!
