After the vow renewal ceremony at the Elvis Chapel (see yesterday's post), my clients, who were elaborately dressed in steampunk garb for Halloween, wanted to do some cool portraits around the many extravagant casinos on the Vegas strip. We did quite a few pictures at the luxurious Wynn and Encore. I've learned over time that it's fairly fruitless for me to try and take pictures for the blog when I'm working, because I'm so focused on the task at hand. But this time I remembered to get a few for you that weren't just test shots. Miracle!
At the top of this post, the entrance to the Wynn. Above, this giant hot air balloon greeted us as we entered. It was constructed entirely of live flowers.
Tulips by Jeff Koons sits right in front of the theater inside the Wynn. This sculpture is valued at $33.6 million.
I had a distraught moment when I saw these exquisitely chic shoes in a shop window at the Encore, and realized that they probably cost more than what I was being paid to fly to Vegas and shoot this wedding. ( *sob* )
Another shop window at the Encore. Some lucky child will get this charming giraffe to decorate their room I'm sure.
