This Las Vegas elopement was definitely an experience that I will remember forever. I had an amazing time capturing Cristina and Jose in such a beautiful setting. Their day consisted of a helicopter ride experience, a beautiful desert overlook landing for their ceremony, stunning florals, and an In-N-Out celebration afterwards to finish off the night. This was my first time in a helicopter, and it was an exhilarating experience all around. I've photographed many elopements before, but this one takes the crown for most adventurous.

The fun memories and breathtaking views made this an experience of a lifetime that I will definitely be doing again.
