The Resort at Mt Charleston Elopement | Las Vegas Styled Shoot

When I hear “elopement“, I always get super excited! I LOVE when couples opt for small, more intimate weddings – and what better place to tie the knot than Las Vegas? As micro-weddings and elopements become more common place (thanks, COVID-19!), I am thrilled to be able to provide inspiration for couples planning their special day. But, I won’t lie: these last few weeks, I’ve hesitated to share my work given everything going on. However… here’s the thing: my job is to share love stories of all shapes, sizes, colors, creeds & orientations! So I’m choosing to share my most recent work, a beautiful interracial couple who modeled for a Resort at Mt Charleston elopement styled shoot I attended last week.

The Resort at Mt Charleston Elopement

I was lucky enough to work with some amazing local Las Vegas wedding vendors and this sweet (real life!) couple for this styled shoot! We had SO much fun together! This Resort at Mt Charleston Elopement will hopefully provide inspiration for so many couples making hard choices – and it inspired all of us in the industry!

For this adventurous and chic styled shoot at Mt Charleston, Las Vegas Styled Shoots worked hard to create a beautiful modern vibe. Every detail from the modern arch to the green cake and these mountain inspired outfits for the bride and groom were just stunning! I’m so happy I was able to be a part of this beautiful shoot!

This styled shoot reminded me that even though my job isn’t “traditional”, it is still my responsibility to help however I can. I will continue to share the love stories that I have the honor or capturing, new & past! I will also continue to share things that I hope can help change the world we live in. We all need to do better! Be better allies, better activists, better listeners & most of all better humans! Let’s fight for what is right, not what’s comfortable or “the norm” because clearly that hasn’t been working!
