Today it’s our great pleasure to share the love story of Marco and Jueen with you.  It’s so amazing to me each and every day that we get to be a part of so many lives and so much joy.

“I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness.” – Drew Barrymore

It’s the happy people like Marco and Jueen that make our work so rewarding…..now for their story.

JM_1413“Our love story began back in 2010 when my husband, Marco, and I started working in P.F. Changs China Bistro. I had just made a dramatic job change to do something non-design related. He had just left a restaurant on the strip. It’s funny because when Marco first asked me out on a date, I said no. He thought I was playing hard to get but in reality I just wasn’t ready to date. With his persistence and charm I ended up giving him a chance. Technically our first date involved a horror movie which is ironic because we rarely ever watch them now. Fast forward almost 5 years later, we have a house together, have gotten married, and also became parents to our beautiful baby girl Camila, who’s now almost 4 months.

Marco and I really enjoy cooking together which is our favorite pass time. We love to make our food taste and look beautiful on the plate. Our dream one day is to open up our own place together and we are working towards it. Aside from that, Marco is a personal trainer by day, works in a Brazilian restaurant by night and I’m a portrait photographer. We are passionate about what we do and it shows.

You know you have a good relationship with your significant other when it’s so easy to be with them. We connect on the level that shocks me and we can read each other so well it’s almost creepy. Day in and day out, it’s never a battle and we also don’t have many debates or arguments. In addition, we are so thankful and grateful to have each other and all that is around us. Living together has taught me how to really care for someone. Not only must you be considerate of their things, understand give-and-take, and be kind to one another, you become a team that always strives to win. I truly believe that’s what we do.”

Brides and Grads Get Celebrity Treatment with Myrna Loy Photography

April 24, 2015

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!!!

Capture
“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!”

There are so many amazingly talented photographers here in Las Vegas, what are some the things you have done to add value to your services?

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.”

Discovering the joy with Kristen Joy Photography

April 17, 2015

We get to work with so many absolutely AMAZING photographers here our beautiful city of Las Vegas. Today we are so happy to introduce you to Kristen Joy Photography she truly is a “joy” to work with and seems to experience so much of her own joy from her work.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Kristen can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started as a photographer?

Hmmmm, A little about me, I love weddings, I love all the little details and joy that comes from the day. I love working with brides and seeing their visions come to life. I originally started as a family photographer, when I received the chance to be a second shooter for an amazing photographer, I realized I was missing out on all the fun! I started in 2007 and have been photographing weddings ever since.

I especially love working with you at Makeup in the 702 because you are so talented at what you do. I work to make every individual client happy and it’s hard to find others in this town with the same mindset. I remember working with you on a shoot in the dry lake bed, when I told you my ideas, you were just as excited as I was. I love that you have passion for your work and joy shines through every email and phone call.”

 

What kind of misconceptions do you think people have about wedding photography?

There can be misconceptions about wedding photography, one that sticks out to me is, when a person sees the photos after the wedding or event and says, “Wow you must have a really nice camera.” It make me giggle a bit, because all though most wedding photographers do have nice cameras, we take our job seriously and consider ourselves artists. I happen to shoot a lot of film photography as well, my film camera probably cost me less than most peoples iphones, but I can produce beautiful works of art on that 35mm camera.

There are a millions benefits to hiring a professional photographer. One major benefit to hiring a professional photographer is you will be able to view your timeless memories over and over with the confidence that they will turn out. I hear people say, “my friend just bought a camera, so he is going to photograph my wedding.” My heart hurts a bit hearing that, you spend so much money on your wedding day and are risking losing those timeless photographs.”

What challenges and inspires you?

I find so much inspiration in Las Vegas, not the Strip and casino Vegas, but the landscape, the Red Rocks, the Dry lake Beds, the succulents, our scenery is so diverse. I love the highlighting that our unique landscape adds to my photographs. I’m so thankful to work in such a fun and inspiring community like Las Vegas. We are a hub of amazing talent and it truly pushes me to be the top in field daily.”

 

Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home… it’s your responsibility to love it, or change it”~Chuck Palahniuk

We are Jessie & Jason Emeric. We’re wedding photographers for happy couples in love. We’ve been photographing weddings together for over 10 years and we absolutely love what we do. We believe in telling the complete story of your wedding day and capturing all the must-have shots, but also the fun moments in between.

We love working with Makeup in the 702 and sigh a breath of relief when our brides tell us they’ll be using Makeup in the 702 because we know they’ll be in good hands. They will feel amazing and look gorgeous, making our job super easy 🙂

Awwww Thank you! I can’t tell you how much that means to both me and my team. It means a lot to us to create a memorable experience for both the bride and our colleagues.

Let’s take a moment to talk about planning. What do you want a planning couple to know about your business?

We’d like couples to know that wedding photography isn’t just a business for us. We are truly passionate about weddings. We seriously get excited for each and every couple we meet and have the privilege of photographing.

What are some of the misconceptions about your service?

Some people may not realize all the work that goes into wedding photography. Wedding photography is a lot more than just having a fancy camera and showing up at the wedding. There’s also a lot more that happens after the photographs are taken on the wedding day. A lot of work goes into post-production, making sure our couples have the best wedding photographs.

canyon_gate_country_club_las_vegas_wedding-03Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions a planning couple will make after all, wedding pictures are a cherished keepsake, passed down through generations, and the only commemoration of the thousands of hours and dollars spent to plan one of the most important days of your life. What are the benefits of using your service?

A few benefits of having us photograph your wedding day is that we love being there for our couples and it shows. Every wedding and every couple is different and we treat all our couples as individuals, as friends. We know being photographed can be intimidating for some folks, but know that we will make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful on your wedding day.

Every bride wants their photos to be as unique as they are I’m certain that must be a challenging aspect of your work. Where do you find your inspiration?

We find inspiration everywhere and anywhere. We love spending time outdoors and being open to new opportunities and fun times. It’s often in these moments when inspiration is at it’s best! We love bright colors, happy images, and keeping things fresh.
