The amazing thing about having seven different photographers on our fashion spread shoot out at The Westin at Lake Las Vegas is seeing how creative each photographer was with the models, settings and lighting.  Amy Vilela from Vilela Photography was no exception.  She utilized the amazing landscape opportunities and the beautiful fashions to come up with fabulous images each time. We are excited to have her images appear in the two 2014 Spectacular Bride issues.

This is what Amy has to say about her artists statement and her photography:

 I love experiencing life and engaging in meaningful experiences. I value how important it is to capture and cherish all those little moments because they are what helps make the fabric of our memory.I aim to capture the extraordinary in the ordinary in both bright color images and dramatic black and white images. An image can freeze a moment in time, but each image can also hold a distinct memory, or perhaps create a new one.

The lovely model Kristina Schiavi was wearing a Mori Lee gown from Bowties Bridal and her hair and makeup was by Hair’z Melinda.
