I get many calls from future brides that want to get married inside on of the many wedding chapels in Las Vegas. Here is an article that will help prepare you.
Southern Nevada attracts many tourists who want to get married. Having Elvis conduct is always a classic. However many brides and grooms that plan to get married here in advance make a common mistake. When you purchase a wedding package from one of the many wedding chapels available they do not let you bring in your own photographer into the chapel. This limitation may not always be clearly presented upon booking a location. Some of the chapels are upfront about it and do have great photographers but be careful because some may disappoint you. Before you book your chapel and ceremony make sure you find out about picture restrictions within the chapel.
Why is this so important? You are coming to Southern Nevada to get married for a reason. You want to be able to remember your special day. When you look back at your photos you want to be brought back to those special moment. Getting married by Elvis is cool so hopefully if they do not allow outside professionals you will be able to get decent photos from the person they provide.
To make it harder for visitors that want to find a professional if one does a Google search for wedding photographer Las Vegas the majority of the local businesses that show up on the map section are wedding chapels not real photographers.
Unfortunately when you leave the amazing chapel you were just married in you are going around town without someone to capture your memories. Once you leave the chapel the real fun on the town starts. It may require double booking for you but do not forget to get some great shots in and around town with a local expert. Also if you have a wedding reception, do not make the mistake of not having those moments captured. Look for a local pro that will be able to show you around town and get the portraits you are looking for.
Again I am not trying to take anything away from the chapels because they are a staple of the whole Las Vegas persona but engaged couples need to be prepared.
