I’m a little late on posting these as I’ve been preoccupied with album design lately. Two weeks ago, I spent 5 days in Las Vegas for the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) conference at the MGM Grand Hotel. I stayed at the hotel, walked around the tradeshow for countless hours, spent a whole night dancing and then went to a sunrise concert, and met a ton of amazing photographers. However, I didn’t manage to take my camera out of my bag very often. I took a few photos, but mostly I was caught up in the experience of it all.
On Monday night, there was a big dance party that everyone headed to in their finest clothes. We got our photos taken at the Smilebooth (for the record, I may be the worst photobooth poser in the world). My tiny top hat made by Mischief My Dear (check out her shop to get the cutest rainbow starred top hat) was a huge hit with everyone.
At 5:30am that morning, Krista and I got on a bus that took us out into the middle of the desert for a sunrise concert put on by With Etiquette (a place to get great royalty-free songs for wedding slideshows). Below is a video made by the amazing wedding videographers Still Motion about the concert, followed by a couple of my photos from the morning.
On our last night, we finally took a wander down the strip to check out the fountain show at the Bellagio, which is a very fancy hotel. We also saw the chocolate fountain inside, which a room service man at the MGM made me pinky swear that we’d see. Here are a few of my photos from that night.
Maybe next time, I’ll take more photos when I’m not so distracted by all the new and sparkly lights.
