Las Vegas Elopement – Emma + Rahim
VEGAS BABY!! (sorry, couldn’t resist) It’s not every day you get the chance to shoot a wedding in Las Vegas. To say I was excited about hooking up with these guys in Sin City is a bit of an understatement. Emma + Rahim decided to ditch an Irish wedding in favour of a Las Vegas Elopement! Although strictly speaking Emma + Rahim’s Vegas nuptials were actually more of an intimate wedding with only their closest friends and family in attendance. It also didn’t hurt that it took place in the most bad-ass of bad-ass locations! And I’m not talking about the word famous neon strip. Close your eyes, now imagine stepping onto the surface of Mars. Now you’re on the right track to what visiting Valley of Fire state park is like. The colours, the light and the textures are all so alien to a Belfast based wedding photographer!
A couple after my own heart not only for their penchant for throwing tradition out the window and making their wedding a true reflection of who they are, but also for the fact they are two of the loveliest, most chilled out people around (and mega dog lovers to boot!) It’s also one of the few, scratch that, the only time I’ve not declined a drink during morning prep. Hey, don’t judge me, it’s Vegas and Emma’s Mummy was very persuasive :p
Guys, thank you so, so much for having me along for what was a truly incredible adventure! I’ll not be forgetting this one anytime soon and with any luck the images are burned into your psyche just as much as they are in mine.
If like these two legends, a destination wedding or an elopement is more your bag get in touch, we’d love to hear your plans!
