Las Vegas Temple Wedding- Lauren and Abram

We were thrilled to be able to photograph the wedding of wonderful, fun couple this past week. Lauren and Abram were married on a busy Saturday afternoon at the Las Vegas LDS temple. It was a beautiful, sunny day with bright blue skies and not a cloud in sight.  While we were waiting for our bride and groom to come outside after their ceremony, we got to laugh, smile, and mingle with some of the family waiting there.  What a marvelous group of people.  Some of our favorite pictures are featured below.

Congratulations Lauren and Abe! We wish you a long and happy married life with lots of laughter, hugs, and kisses just like we saw on your wedding day! xoxo from Lory, Rachel, and Rey  at Cactus and Lace.

Cactus and Lace Stylized Elopement…Valley of Fire

We couldn’t have picked a better day for this lovely stylized elopement out in the Valley of Fire, near Las Vegas, NV. The sky was pleasantly overcast, and it had recently rained, causing the normally dry desert to soak up the moisture and pop alive with color.

Our bride and groom had beautiful chemistry, and the flowers, decor, and styling were perfectly spot on. Valley of Fire is such a gorgeous backdrop for an elopement, with just enough versatility to get different photographic looks. The bold red rocks add a natural and beautiful depth, and the wide open sky marries perfectly with the desert vistas. We love that Valley of Fire State Park offers a photo tour that allows you to photograph in diverse areas of the park. We recommend it to all our brides and grooms who book elopements with us.

If you are looking for an elopement experience that is breathtaking, organic, and personalized to you and your partner, then you are in the right place. We at Cactus and Lace Weddings pride ourselves on providing such a service to every couple who books with us.

The awesome vendors who lent their talents to this beautiful stylized shoot:

Hair/Makeup – Brandy Norris

Fashion Designer – True Gentleman Supply Company

Wedding Announcements – Basic Invite

Wedding Cake – Gimme Some Sugar

Floral Designer – Miss Daisy Flowers

Event Planning & Design/ Photography – Cactus and Lace Weddings, LLC

Models – Micah Jensen & Savannah Knight

Pine Valley Utah Engagement Session – Brandy & Jared

When we met up with Brandy and Jared just before their engagement session, we were a little worried about how it would go. Jared lost his cell phone earlier that morning at a clothing store, and Brandy was a little worried that they were running late. To make matters worse, there was more snow on the ground than we thought there would be, and it was quite cold and very windy. But once we got them wrapped up in a blanket and somewhat warm and comfy, everything just sort of naturally fell into place. It wasn’t long before we remembered the real reason we were all there. What we were there to capture and celebrate- their LOVE. And Brandy & Jared have no shortage of it. The way he can make her smile, the fact she can’t stop kissing him. The way he would pull her a little closer to protect her from the wind. Sigh… we just LOVE love. It’s such a wonderful thing to witness. We honestly can’t wait for their wedding day when we get to photograph them again.

Jared, thanks for being such a great sport about Brandy’s vision of pine trees and snow. You were so awesome to entertain all our ideas and requests. And Brandy, we’re giddy thinking about photographing you in your wedding dress. You are so lovely, it’s going to be amazing!

WPPI Shootout 2015: Cactus and Lace Weddings – Updated Specials

Hello photographers!

We have gotten such a great response and support from everyone about this shoot and we are so excited! We wanted to give you an update on a new special we are gonna run since so many of you were asking to extend the $100 discount. So we are gonna continue to offer that as a twofer; both you and a friend get the $350 price when you sign up together! (Then you won’t be lonely.)   😉

You can still pay separately, just both of you need to send an email to rachel@cactusandlaceweddings.com and mention the Twofer Special and the name of your friend that you are signing up with. And we will get you all set up!

C&LShootoutMarketingTwofer

Remember that this shootout is really three shootouts in one; because we will have 3 completely different stylized set ups with models for you to photograph. By splitting things up that allows us to have only a small number of photographers shooting each set up at a time. We are also providing lunch as well as transportation to and from WPPI. This couldn’t be a better deal!  You can see our previous blog post for more information. Please contact us with any questions.

Hope to see you there!

Our best; Lory, Rachel & Rey
