Matt and Annika | Red Rock Canyon Wedding Photographer
About twenty-five minutes outside of Las Vegas is the stunning Red Rock Canyon!!! It’s one of my favorite places to visit whenever I’m in Vegas! It’s one of the most beautiful places to have a desert wedding or to elope near Las Vegas!
My amazing photographer friend, Dustin from Dustin Thompson Photography, and I made a short two day trip up to Las Vegas earlier in November to photograph Matt and Annika’s STUNNING Red Rock Canyon wedding!!!
Both Matt and Annika are fellow travel lovers and they both love to be outdoors doing outdoorsy things! Hiking, biking, climbing, etc. They actually met in Esteria, where Annika is originally from, on one of Matt’s trips!
Matt and Annika decided to have their wedding out at Red Rock Canyon since they both love the outdoors and love traveling!
They had their beautiful Red Rock Canyon Wedding at the top of the hill by the scenic overlook, overlooking the gorgeous Red Rock Canyon mountains and the desert below! Their closest friends and family flew in from all over the world to see them get married! It was simply MAGICAL and so heart melting!!!
Some of my Favorite Parts of their Red Rock Canyon Wedding Day!
- Annika is originally from a little country called Esteria!!! I’m a huge sucker for accents and I absolutely LOVE her beautiful Esterian accent!
- As a gift to Dustin and I, to say thank you for us being there to photograph their beautiful wedding day, Annika gave us each a super yummy chocolate bar from Esteria!
- The look Matt gave Annika during their first look! Pure joy, love, and excitement! Loved Annika’s excited expression too!!! So so so cute!
- I loved how Matt and Annika joked with each other throughout the entire day!!! Love it when couples an amazing sense of humor!
- Matt and Annika added a really awesome, unique multi page wedding program for their guests to read about their love story with some fun facts included and adorable photos of them together throughout their relationship together!
- Matt wore the watch that his dad gave him so that his dad could still be a part of their beautiful wedding day!
- My heart melted seeing their faces light up every time they looked at each other on their wedding day! So sweet!
