Shekiera & Brandon’s Wedding Trailer {Las Vegas Wedding Videographers}

Shekiera and Brandon hit close to the heart with us, as we have been working with Shekiera for many, many years! She is one of the top makeup artists in the Las Vegas area and works for the super talented Makeup in the 702.

Time and time again, she has made brides look absolutely gorgeous! Beyond gorgeous, really! Downright stunning! Many of our Lighten Films brides have had the pleasure of having their face made extra draw-drop gorgeous by her artistic hands.
Every time we would see Shekiera during a bride’s getting ready portion of the day, Shekiera would say, “Terrence is going to film my wedding. I may not be engaged yet, but Terrence IS going to film my wedding.” We always would laugh and joke about it, but Kiera was serious.

So, when Brandon finally popped the question to Kiera, no time was wasted in locking in Lighten Films for the big day.
Brandon was a bit hesitant about the pricing at first, but Kiera assured him that it would be money well spent, and after they received their trailer, Brandon said it was worth every penny!

Love you both!

Luxury Miami Sunset Wedding

Dominique + Dawan \\ Coming Attraction from Lighten Films – 702.266.6226 on Vimeo.

I had the pleasure of being flown out to the lovely city of Miami to film this luxurious event. Dom and Dawan met in college and have been together for almost a decade. They picked the perfect day to get married with beautiful weather, and with the amazing wedding planner Tiffany Cook of Tiffany Cook Events, the day was smooth and executed perfectly. I enjoyed teaming up with the awesome photographers Martha and Jesus from Unique Design Studios to document this lavish event. I had a blast and look forward to taking my talents to South Beach again 🙂

From Israel to Las Vegas with Love: Destination Wedding

I had the pleasure of meeting Ksenia and Jenia about 6 months before their wedding. They told me how they had this idea of not only having a Las Vegas wedding, but filming a short poker/James Bond concept film as well. Ksenia, who shoots photography and videography as a hobby, fell in love with Lighten Films and wanted us to combine our creative minds together. We came up with an idea and made the magic happen.

Ksenia and Jenia are a hot couple that is so in love with one another that during their photo session, I thought I needed a fire extinguisher to cool them off. 🙂 I had a blast filming them exchange their wedding vows at Red Rock Canyon, and documenting their preps at Palms Place in the Erotic Suite. Of course with a small Las Vegas destination wedding, we had to get some Las Vegas strip shots, especially in front of the world famous water show at the Bellagio. I had an awesome time just hanging out with them and all of their friends and had a drink with them before I left 🙂 Like most of our couples, I have developed a friendship for a lifetime and look forward to hanging out with them again next time they are in Las Vegas, or I have always wanted to visit Israel, so we’ll see what happens first 🙂


Ksenia mesmerizing hair and makeup was done by the talented Stevee Danielle.

A Summer Love Wedding

Alicia and Matthew still do, as they renew their vows at the lovely Anthem Country Club. Alicia who married Matt at the Graceland Chapel at a very young age, finally got the wedding of her dreams. I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful couple at Bridal Spectacular in August of 2011. When they came to our studio for a presentation, we immediately bonded. The love they have for one another is amazing, and the challenges that they faced like most young married couples were able to be overcome. This only strengthen their love for one another as well as the birth of their adorable son Jayden.

Fun, is the best word to describe this wedding from the bridal party, to the families and guests, it was absolutely fun. Filming a fun wedding and documenting the day along side my good friend Chelsea Nicole Photography, just made the day even more awesome. Alicia and Matthew thank you for being awesome and allowing me to capture your awesomeness….

Dancing Under the Stars // Stunning Las Vegas Wedding at the Four Seasons

What can I say about Candice and Lally, this amazing couple from Chicago met here in Las Vegas a few years ago. All Lally had to do was get on the dance floor at a club and look handsome, and Candice approached him with a one-liner “Will you be my pretend boyfriend for tonight?” and the rest was history. Not too many guys are fortunate enough to have a beautiful woman approach them at a club, but if you knew the full Love Story, you would see how some things are meant to be. That’s Candice and Lally, they are meant to be, and they show it everyday, every second they are together. They wanted to unite in marriage and celebrate their love at the place where “they” started, lovely Las Vegas. I was honored that they chose Lighten Films to capture their love on a once in a lifetime day where it is expressed the most. Thank you Candice and Lally! You guys are awesome…

Candice’ makeup looked amazing all day, which is not a surprise since it was done by Megan from Makeup in the 702…
