Willi Wedding Extravaganza - The Photography

This really is an ode...

because honestly, there aren't adequate words for how much the mister and I adore our wedding photos. We more than love them. We've considered getting a security deposit box for them {I'm not kidding}. 

I stumbled onto the Dott Photography site while checking out another photographer. He left a thoughtful message about how awesome it was working with Olga and my nosiness curiosity swiftly led me in her direction. 

From the very first photo, I knew my search was done. But I didn't make a move— because I'm indecisive {to a fault}. It's not that I can't make a decision... it's that I make one, then change my mind a million and one times {which does NOT make you-know-who very happy}.  

After my first visit to Olga's site, I didn't look at another photographer... I just stalked the page for a couple weeks. Ridiculous, huh? But then I finally got it together and emailed. A few lovely emails and one phone call later— I had the chance to work with the photographer of my dreams  

On wedding day, Olga was the sweetest and most calming presence my entire day. Before we even snapped the first picture, I managed to drag my dress across pavement and get soot, dirt, and crud all over it {of course, I freaked}, but she assured me that Photoshop works wonders. How could you not love that? After a few deep breaths, a couple glasses of champagne, and my bridesmaids bustling the hell out of my dress, all was well— and we started on our photo journey. We went all over the strip before the ceremony—and we hit up Freemont street and downtown afterward. The entire experience couldn't have been more fantastic.

Here are just a few shots from our day:

So, on top of being incredibly fun to work with and be around all day, Olga left this lovely little note for us on our teaser page:

The love fest continues— I still can't thank you enough for being such a wonderful part of our day and for giving us such gorgeous memories! I don't think I'm one of those people who believes everything happens for a reason, but I certainly do believe some things are meant to be. As cheese-tastic as it sounds, I feel like working with you was written in the stars long before I ever called you up. 

I still check the Dott Blog like it's my job! We cannot WAIT to get back to Las Vegas for another opportunity for photos with Olga— hopefully sooner than later!

PS-- thanks for taking a look back with me everyone—this past week has been a LOT of fun!


  1. Love Love the pics! Everytime I look at them they are so much fun. There are some I want copies of!!!

  2. OMG Girl! You just made my day completely and irreversibly happy! I miss you guys and wish you all the laughter in the world! XO

  3. I definitely wish we had sprung for a better photographer. We're going back in July for my birthday. I can't wait.
