Las Vegas wedding photography at the Bellagio Hotel, Caesers Palace Hotel, Mirage Hotel, Venetian Hotel and The Fabulous Las Vegas Sign. Is the photography session better during the day or night?

Night time wedding photography on the Las Vegas Strip has it's glamour and sparkling lights however is the night time the right time to do your wedding photography?

I have been performing Las Vegas Strip Tours for 15 years and want to share the following information to all couples looking for wedding photography on the Las Vegas Strip :

When shooting at night the main source of light for the couples is a flash. Those lights are harsh and most of times not flattering to the subject.

Below is a link from google to show you visually of how it looks at night.

The amount of editing that goes into those pictures is very time consuming. If you are not paying for editing the pictures are usually over exposed and over flashed. It takes work to make them look good and that is why some photographers charge a hi fee to shoot them.

The Las Vegas Hotels all block sections off so the general public can't interfere in the composure of the picture. Most free lance photographers do not have that luxury.

The traffic on the strip is almost at a stand still and it can take 15 to 30 minutes to cross a major street. If you paying by the hour your session you could wind up with a lot of traveling and limited picture time. Trying to find a place to park can be frustrating and nearly impossible at night.

There is also a tremendous amount of tourists around the popular backdrops like the Bellagio fountains, Caesars Palace Fountains, The Venetian Hotel Gondolas, The Mirage Volcano and other hot spots around the strip. This creates a difficult situation to get images without anyone in them except the wedding couple!

Finally there is no natural light. Lighting is the key to great photography. This leads me to explain all the benefits of shooting in the morning and early afternoon on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Las Vegas Strip is the complete opposite in regards to the natural light. In the morning and early afternoon the Las Vegas Strip receives natural light and direct sunlight which provides beautiful color in the images.. In the late afternoon when the sun goes west behind the hotels the strip turns a blue/grey tone and isn't the most satisfactory lighting for a wedding photography shoot.

There are also a lot of areas open to the public during the day that need indirect and direct lighting to give the beautiful detail in the landscape and structures. Areas such as the waterfall inside the Palazzo Hotel have big beautiful skylight windows which let in natural light and provides for ideal photography.

If you look at my Las Vegas Strip Photography Tour Gallery below, you will see what I am writing about. There is vibrant color, soft lighting and a lot of detail in the pictures that you can not get at nighttime.

I suggest doing the photography session in the morning to mid afternoon to get the maximum benefits of your photography shoot and the best picture quality.

Red Rock Canyon is one of the most stunning backdrops for Las Vegas Wedding Photography or a Las Vegas Wedding!

There are two different excursions that I recommend.

1. The perimeter of the Red Rock National Park from Our Giant Joshua Cactus, West Red Rock Mountains and Calico Basin that has a beautiful country like feel with a grassy field and awesome mountains that scream bursts of color.

2. Inside the park for a 13 mile drive that includes easy rock climbing for one of a kind pictures to a trail to a giant pine tree and large rock formation.

This truly is a experience you will truly treasure for a lifetime.

It is one of my favorite places to be and provides images that can not be reproduced anywhere even close.

United Kingdom couples getting married in Las Vegas looking for a affordable Las Vegas Wedding Photographer

Couples that want to experience the iconic backdrops in Las Vegas for there wedding pictures can hire a Las Vegas Wedding Photographer at a fraction of the fee they would pay at a chapel.

Choosing a restaurant for a couple eloping on a budget.

So many couples coming to Las Vegas and that have planned a Las Vegas Wedding or a Las Vegas Elopement are on a budget. There are so many great choices of restaurants, however the hotels restaurants can be very expensive. It actually can be cheaper to use Uber or Lyft to get to a restaurant off the strip then eating on the strip. If you have or car or are renting a car then that is even better.

Here is a list you can google for some great food locally;

Lindo Michoacán Restaurant
One of the best views in Henderson overlooking Las Vegas.

I Love Sushi

Chicago Joes

Town Square is a shopping mall that has many restaurants:
(Some are a little pricey and others very fairly priced.)

Brio Italian (Just beautiful inside)

Texas De Brazil (My personal favorite if your a meat lover)

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

Bonefish Grill

China Town is also just 2 miles from the Las Vegas Strip

Enjoy !

 

Style Comparison Of A Affordable Las Vegas Wedding Photographer

Style Comparison (Please Read)

I wanted to share with you a very important piece information before you as a couple make your decision of choosing a Las Vegas Wedding Photographer..

Some photographers have one style. You look at their pictures and they are either very beautifully over exposed, some photographers approach there editing in a soft light color for their final product , some process all black and white images,  others vibrant colors, and also add in stunning lighting effects, and others a combination of various styles.

As I stated in my gallery page, we all use the same equipment and similar lenses. We all have to shoot in ideal lighting and other times have to shoot in poor lighting conditions.

We can change how much light comes in or how we minimize the light that comes in. There is no magic. It is all technical and the lighting has a big say in the image.

Most photographers today spend countless hours in the post department. It is very time consuming and the end product results are unlimited in todays technology.

Some brides and grooms like rich color, some like black and white and sepia images, some like faded images, and on and on. If you look at the golf course wedding gallery compared to my wedge wood gallery, you will see a vast difference in color and style.

I displayed 16 images to show you how different one image can look by the magic of technology.

I started out with a vibrant color image, and then to a more natural look and finally worked the image  down to the flat matte finish of a black and white photograph.

I could do so much more and add sun ray effects, make it darker outside, add spot lights and on and on. I am just trying to show you that it isn't the lens or camera, it is how we manipulate that image after the fact.

If you can take the time to look at my galleries, I showcase all kinds of effects and lighting choices chosen by the couples requests.

I am not limited to one style and I always ask the bride and groom what they prefer so I can satisfy their needs.

So please don't think that a $5000.00 wedding photographer does anything different then a affordable photographer that has the same skills. It is all about the post work.

I look forward to hearing from you to find out what style suits your needs.

Does Affordable Las Vegas Wedding Photography Mean Less Quality

All Las Vegas Wedding Photographers use either a Nikon or Cannon camera. The professional photographer uses the best lenses that allow more light into the camera with a crisp result. Technically, most professionals have the logistics of taking a picture down to a science. The big question is, why do some photographers charge a fair fee and others charge thousands and thousands of dollars? Affordable Las Vegas Wedding Photographer Vs ...........!

I can tell you that there are some lower priced photographers out there and you get what you pay for.

Then there are photographers who have a passion for what they do and get joy to provide Affordable Las Vegas Wedding Photography at a affordable price. Keith Kaplan is one of those photographers. He has over 200 reviews, has over 4000 weddings under his belt and has provided countless couples from all over the world with Hi End Images at an affordable price.

The post work is truly where all the magic is performed and they are so many options of edits that the final products end results are limitless. In the old days you were limited in the results of a picture, but todays technology allows unbelievable results.

Keith has taken workshops and has the ability in his edits to provide you with breath taking images. He is at a point in his life where the joy and pleasure he gets from seeing a bride light up when he shows her a picture during the shoot is priceless to him.

One of the ways Keith cuts down on his pricing is by limiting meetings and letting the customer own the copyrights to his images. A higher priced photographer charges for all the meetings you have with them. It isn't shown on the pricing sheet however it is in there end price.

Instead of paying for you to view the pictures after with the photographer and meeting before hand, Keith does everything via phone, face time or skype. By cutting those hours down, he can charge a fair price and you still get the same results.

If you have any questions you can call Keith at 702-301-7929 or email him at kkclean@cox.net

Affordable, Elopement, Just for a couple, Las Vegas Destination Wedding Tips for individuals on a budget and looking for a afforable Las Vegas wedding or Las Vegas Wedding Package.

If you are coming to Fabulous Las Vegas (Wedding Capitol of the World), I suggest a few things to consider. This applies for small destination Las Vegas wedding groups, elopement couples, just 2, and couples looking into Las Vegas Chapels, Hotel Chapels.

The Las Vegas Chapels are awesome. The hotels and the chapels on the strip have so many choices, however if you are looking to save money, it is better to find a local photographer that also provides weddings, or find a minister of your choice and then hire a photographer like myself to provide the service for photography.

The chapels charge a high fee to buy your images. It could cost up to $2500.00 plus to get a 100 images. I have had countless couples do a wedding at a chapel and then take there 6 to 12 pictures the chapel provides and then hire me to get there real wedding photos.

There are affordable wedding packages: Click on the link:

I suggest a intimate experience and have the extra money for fabulous shows, dining and excersions in our fabulous city.

Hair and Makeup

For fifteen years I have been a Las Vegas Wedding Photographer. One of the things that stress out a bride and causes the whole shoot to be delayed is not having the right Hair and makeup company.

I have witness delays for 15 minutes to 2 hour behind schedule.

I have used the same Company http://pamperedbridesoflasvegas.com/ for my whole career.

They are very affordable and professional and come right to your hotel room.

Finally, they are awesome and the turn around time is very quick.

Hope this helps out you future brides.
