When we stop to think about the milestones in our lives few compare to our high school graduation and our wedding day. Today we are talking with a Las Vegas Photographer that specializes in capturing the moments of those two paramount moments.
Welcome Myrna Loy Photography!!!
“Hi there! I am Myrna, owner and photographer for Myrna Loy Photography. I am a senior portrait and wedding photographer here in the beautiful Las Vegas. I have been photographing weddings for about 10 years now, 3 of those as my own business and the others as a second shooter for a photographer on the coast of North Carolina. I was excited to begin my own journey here in Las Vegas. I love coffee, the beach (which I miss dearly), spending time with my family and friends, shopping, fun jewelry, horses, and trying new things. I don’t like many sweets, but butter cream icing is my weakness.”
I’m not entirely sure if people truly understand or can appreciate the planning and thought that goes in to photographing a wedding can you tell us a little bit about your processes?
Wedding photography is not just about pulling out the camera and snapping photos during the wedding, but about capturing the moment. It is also about making sure the final product is perfection. An eight hour wedding could very well be about 20 hours of time dedicated to that couple. Between consults, planning, meeting, engagement sessions, the wedding, post-processing (editing), presenting the images, ordering, packaging, and everything in between, it is no short task. As a wedding photographer, I want to make sure that my and my couples and I are the right fit for each other. I feel that me and my clients should have that spark when we first talk, like it was meant to be. My clients are like my friends and they shall be treated like one. This also goes for my high school seniors in planning their perfect senior session.
I am a low volume wedding photographer. I want to make sure my clients get the attention they deserve, I only accept one wedding (or 2 elopements) per month. These beautiful couples get my full attention for the wedding day.”
You also specialize in portraits for graduating seniors what inspired you to choose that particular occasion to specialize in?
Graduating high school is a huge moment in a teenager’s life and I want to capture who they really are at the moment in time. I want them to look back and not just see a photo but be able to see all the fun they had throughout their senior year.
My seniors are investing in an awesome experience that they will remember forever. They will feel like a celebrity with all the outfits, locations, pro hair and makeup. They will for sure get that boost of confidence and images that their friends will envy. Seniors are so much fun to photograph!”
One distinction is that I offer professional makeup and hair to my brides and seniors as part of the package. They deserve to be pampered like a celeb for this special time in their lives. Makeup in the 702 has done such an amazing job and Megan you are a total sweetheart!
My wedding packages include the digitals, and album, and an engagement session. I want my couples to have something beautiful and tangible to walk away with and not just a USB of images. We have been married for 5 years and I have printed ONE image from our wedding. I want to make sure that this doesn’t happen to my clients. Our albums are fabulous heirloom quality and completely custom designed.
Weddings are just downright amazing and fun. Everything about them makes me giddy. From photographing the moment he pops the question to heading off into the sunset as newlyweds, I love it all. Psst, I still tear up at every single wedding just as if it were a family member or close friend of mine.
I am so in love with the scenery and the endless possibilities for weddings and portraits here in Las Vegas. I am a sucker for details and just head over heels in love with all things pretty. It is the little things that count just as much as those big moments. As you enjoy your day, I am there to make sure we document those moments for you to look back on and pass down for generations.
There are many amazing photographers out there that I admire, I love trying new things. I have always been an artist. I was obsessed with watercolor painting and still life pencil drawings. My mind is always going wild with new ideas and I am always excited to put them into action. My inspiration could spawn from something as simple as the colors of a pillow I saw in Home Goods.”
