I am so excited to share this Las Vegas Engagement Session in Valley of Fire with you today! With what was maybe the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. It was one of the most romantic, breathtaking days which is so fitting for Ashley and Nicholas and their love story.
The Love Story Behind Las Vegas Engagement Photography
Unfortunately, their love began amidst devastation. Ashley’s son was born with some complications that left him needing to get an artificial airway for breathing assistance. “The situation was scary, to say the least, but I was blessed to have amazing nurses assigned to my case when he was released to come home.”
While focusing on her son’s recovery, Ashley requested a female nurse to make sure her young daughter felt comfortable with the nurse, however, Nicholas was the nurse assigned to the case. I can’t help but think this was fate! Amongst the struggles of being a parent to a new baby again, the two became close. “I would have never known that I would have fallen in love with Nick, but he is everything I wanted for years and attached to this tragedy now brought a blessing to me and our family.”
Ashley describes being struck by his sincerity and charm at first. Now, Nicholas’ generosity and caring spirit continues to be a blessing almost two years later two months before their wedding day.

With life back to normal with two kids, Ashley and Nicholas enjoy cooking together. “We are both pretty skilled in the kitchen, so that is where and when we end up spending the most quality time with one another,” says Ashley. She continues, “Nicholas is Portuguese, so he shows me another perspective and exposes me to new dishes and amazing food.” They love food so much that almost two years later they can still remember they ate hush puppies.Nicholas proposed to Ashley at the Stratosphere in Downtown Las Vegas. Ashley is ready for the big day anticipating living every day as officially family. Their entire family seems to be ready for this moment, calling themselves #teamblessed.Nicholas and Ashley, you two are the sweetest! Thank you for trusting me to tell your love story with my camera. I loved every minute of my time with you too. I have so many favorites from your session, and I am so excited for you to see just a few of them here!
