How to Plan Your Vegas Wedding

Planning your Vegas Wedding with your Destination Wedding Photographer

Who’s ready to ditch the big wedding and get married in Vegas?!

Alright, so you’re ready to just say “screw it” and go get married without all the people. But you’re trying to decide whether or not you really want to do something like that. What will the family say? Will Auntie clutch her pearls at the thought of you eloping?! Well, guess what.

It’s your day.

You could keep it secret, grab your photographer, and bring a few besties along for an adventure… or, bring your immediate family – rent out a penthouse and enjoy- have a meal catered by the hotel you choose, and have it all brought to your room. There are so many incredible options for food and accommodations in Vegas!

I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a “Vegas expert”, but I have been there several times now and know my way of the land. Photographing all through the Venetian, on their porch, near the waterfall inside, through the cobblestone shopping mall areas, and beautiful architecture. You truly cannot go wrong with styling for the sophistication and excitement that a Vegas wedding experience offers.

The couple here chose to rent out a penthouse suite at the Bellagio, where they had the in-house catering take care of all the dining. They got married in their suite, officiated by one of their dearest friends, surrounded by all their immediate family and closest friends. This created an experience to remember for all of their guests, and some really fun and beautiful images!

If you have been thinking about doing a destination wedding, Vegas is such a great spot. Now if you are from the midwest I would recommend going in very early Spring, it is a little less scorching. Especially if you have never experienced the temps there before, hot is an understatement. I specialize in Destination weddings and can help you plan out your timeline for the day, and source reputable vendors.

Feel free to contact me and tell me all about your story and what you’re planning, I can’t wait to hear it!!

"Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding."

Jessica & Goutham

"Hire Magan if you want beautiful pictures. She had us literally tearing up at how stunning all her photos of us are and you don’t spend your entire wedding posing for pictures. Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding. You’ll love her personality and you will never regret hiring her for any occasion."

"She captures moments like no on I've seen in the business."

Matt & Stephanie

"Magan is a pro. If you're looking for artist to deliver on the biggest day of your life (wedding) she's your woman. She's honest, fair and fun to hang around with. I never write reviews but needed to for Evoke as the caliber of her work is amazing. It also helps she's leaned in digitally and can deliver your photos back in a seamless and easy way. Well done Magan. Keep on making people look like movie stars. :)"

" Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easey recommendation."

Ben & Janya

"I can't say enough good things about my experience with Magan. I was in the market for a photographer to capture a special moment and Magan was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. In order to look comfortable in photos, it is so crucial to have an upbeat, energetic personality that simultaneously can break any awkwardness with conversation or humor and Magan fulfills that in spades! Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easy recommendation."

"The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless."

Danny & Victoria

Our engagement photo session, with Magan, was an absolute blast. We are so appreciative of Magan’s help and guidance throughout our wedding planning and forever GRATEFUL to have had her and her husband with us on our wedding day. Magan and Jared were perfect for us and our wedding group, and a huge part in making it all happen. The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless. We can’t stop looking at them. She captured every moment. We’re so thankful to not only have gained a photographer for life, but also a friend.
