Miu & Wilbur’s Fab and Glam Neon Museum and Las Vegas Strip E-session


Neon Museum and Las Vegas Strip E-session

The lovely Miu and Wilbur live in Hong Kong but wanted e-session photos in Las Vegas. Wilbur took to the internet and found a wedding at the Neon Museum photographed by husband and wife photo team JoAnne and Jason Marino of Imagine Photography so he proceeded to book them then and there right from across the globe! Incidentally, that wedding he saw was also featured here on Poptastic Bride last year so yeah, full circle and all that. 🙂

If you’ve been reading this blog a while, you know how excited I always am to showcase a shoot by Imagine (see their previous features here) and this time is no different because as you will see, the photos are stunning! I will turn you over to Jason now so he can give you all the details:

Wilbur contacted us inquiring about us doing engagement photos at the world-famous Neon Museum in Las Vegas.  We had done a wedding shoot there in early 2012, and he had seen the images online while looking for reference images.  Normally this wouldn’t be that interesting of a story except that Wilbur and his soon-to-be-bride, Miu, were in Hong Kong and wanted to fly in and have us photograph them at Neon Museum.  Neon Museum recently opened to the public, and the fee for shooting, even for one hour, is substantial, yet worth it!  It is just one-of-a-kind cool; nothing like it in the world.

How sweet are Miu and Wilbur? So in love with their style too! Jason’s here to take us through the day’s events:

With the investment being put into this shoot, Wilbur and Miu wanted to make sure the evening was extra awesome with professional hair and makeup, so at our suggestion, they contacted Amelia of Amelia C. & Co. Hair and Makeup Artistry and booked them for the entire afternoon and evening of the shoot.  With Wilbur being overseas, he asked me to handle the details, so I contacted our friends at the museum, set everything up and we all anxiously waited for the day to arrive for the shoot.  Wilbur and Miu hopped on a plane from Hong Kong, made a stopover in Toronto to see some family, and then proceeded on to Vegas for a few days.

We arrived the afternoon of the shoot and went to their room at the lovely Vdara Hotel at City Center on the Las Vegas Strip where we met Melissa from Amelia C. & Co., who was just finishing up the final touches on Miu’s makeup and hair.  She looked amazing, as did Wilbur!   We all hopped in our car and headed off to Neon Museum where we were promptly let in and got started shooting the shots you see here.

Once done at the Neon Museum, we really wanted to be sure and get some Vegas scenery in the images, so we headed back down to The Strip and shot in front of Paris Hotel & Casino, the Bellagio Fountains, New York Hotel & Casino, and even the world-famous Welcome To Las Vegas sign.
