Being a wedding photographer can be challenging at times. Capturing every precious moment of your special day is our task to bear. Then every once in awhile you actually get one that makes you think, how are we actually going to pull this one off??
As everyone who attempted to drive anywhere in town knows, the Zappo’s Rock & Roll Las Vegas Marathon was held this past Sunday. We were contacted by a couple from Japan that was going to be running in the race and was actually going to get married on the course along with one hundred other couples. They wanted us to not only capture the ceremony, but get shots of them all over the course, start, finish, wedding & downtown. With limited transportation options due to road closures, we would be forced to either get creative or put on some running shoes and try to keep up. After much planning we decided to use two strategically placed photographers, one at the start and the other ready at the 3 mile marker at the Brooklyn Bridge outside NYNY where the couples would be getting married. Then both switch to our second positions, one downtown and the other posted up at the finish line in front of the volcano at the Mirage. With a little bit of luck and a lot of planning everything went off without a single problem and our couple couldn’t be any happier with the results, they even got featured in the Las Vegas Sun.
So as demanding as wedding photography can be sometimes, pulling it off without a hitch is equally rewarding. I look forward to our next challenge! Bring it! - MH
