Las Vegas Desert Photoshoot | Las Vegas – Milwaukee Bridal Photography

So here we are again…. me explaining that I have not posted a blog in some time yadda yadda yadda….

I have great confidence that you will enjoy these photos and the wait will definitely be worth it.

Recently I was in Las Vegas for WPPI (The wedding and portrait photographers mecca for a week). During this time I had a fantastic chance to take a trip into the desert with 25 other photographers from all over the U.S. Along with 5 models, 2 make up artists, and a few high end designer dresses. It was amazing.

I had a few thoughts about that I was going to get from this trip in the days leading up to it. I was thinking it would be a great chance to take some wonderful new portfolio images for my blog, website, etc. It was a lot more than that though.

I met some wonderful people from all over, and also had the pleasure of shooting with them. This allowed me to observe other people in the same craft that I am pursuing and seeing their take on the  art. It was Truly refreshing.  Sometimes you fall into a funk, rut, comfort zone when working with the same people over and over again. This forced me to shoot outside my comfort zone of shooting in Milwaukee where I know how the light it going to look at any given time in any given area.

I must say that I instantly fell in love with the muted tones of the desert. Just simply amazing and is nothing like what I have seen in Wisconsin. The Pastel sky, earth tones of the red mountains in the distance with a slight haze, and wonderful warm light. Just yummy!

Here are some of the shots that I had picked out as my favs so far. Feel free to leave some comments and let me know what you think.
