The Ultimate location list for your photoshoot in Las Vegas

Hi guys! Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas. Here you will find my most exhausted list of photoshoot locations in this one-page guide to help you research your next session. I have walked, driven, flown, for hundreds of miles in Las Vegas photographing various campaigns, projects, weddings, editorial, corporate, portrait, engagement shoots in Las Vegas.

Here's a link to the list populated on

Google Maps

Hotels and Casino Rules:

A few things to remember before shooting; every hotel and casino on the strip is private property, which means you must inform the front desk and/or security that you're taking photographs. Shooting inside the casino level is off-limits because frankly, no one wants to be photographed gambling.

Couples ONLY; for weddings, elopements, and engagements, you'll have to leave your family and friends at your reception, restaurant, or hotel and politely ask them to wait at the rendezvous because hotels want a clear path for their guests.

No large camera rigs, tripods, off-camera flash, public nudity

Casino and Hotel Rules

Fremont is more lenient about its photoshoot rules. As long as there are no off-camera flash or a big number of groups, you will be fine. Their main concern is your safety and everyone else's. You'll still need to inform security to shoot at these areas. ("*" = no need for security)

Golf Clubs and Wedding Venues[106/100]

Many of the golf clubs with wedding venues have an in-house photographer and encourage you to use them. They'll have a wedding coordinator that will explain to you what packages they offer. These packages range from a quick basic photoshoot to renting out the venue the entire day. A link to their site has been provided for your convenience :)

Rhodes Ranch Golf Club

5 Hour Wedding Package, Price Per Guest vary depending on the number of guests. 25-50 Guests

starting at $125 per person

51-100 Guests

starting at $110 per person

101-149 Guests

starting at $95 per person

150-200 Guests

starting at $80 per person

[Link to their site, Reviews Here, Instagram Here]

They don't have an in-house photographer listed. You could be spending between $3,000-$16,000 not including a photographer or videographer. This area has a beautiful man-made lake but surrounded by residences here that can see the wedding from afar. There are plenty of spaces in the parking lot for your guests, though if you are planning to pack over 150-200 cars, maybe pushing it. Especially when there is a security gate that will be IDing you before getting into the private property.

Angel Park Golf Club

I've personally shot at Angel Park Golf Club for a couple from Los Angeles, they've hired me through one of their friends living in Las Vegas. I had a blast with them. They spent the Classic Package but wanted a natural, vintage look to treasure their wedding. Angel Park has a price list but I've taken the liberty to jot down what they are, the cost, and a quick note on their packages. Here are what others are saying(reviews), Instagram, Pricelist

Starting at $2500 for their Casual Package, a la carte menu. This includes ceremony and reception, no photography, up to 100 Guests.

Those who want to try to spend less and have a certain budget in mind but always going over. Skip this and go for the next five.

Classic Package

Ceremony + Reception, a Wedding Coordinator will be preset, Food & Bev, Cake, DJ, Flowers and Decor by Flora Couture[FAQ page here, Reviews Here, Instagram Here], with a photographer by Ella Gagiano Studios[Starting at $4,999, Pricing here, Reviews here, Instagram here] for 5 Hours + Albums + Online Gallery + Engagement or Boudoir Session


This is a good starting price. The photographer(s) uses an off-camera flash, which might mean that they use a second photographer or assistant. They aren't using a lot of editing but not necessarily natural light. The composition is okay but not unique. Certainly is the standard in the wedding photography industry.

Complete Package

Everything that Classic Package has to offer with upgraded features, Tuxedos for the bride and groom, LED Lighting for dance and DJ, with the same photographer Ella Gagiano Studios for 8 Hours


I do see lot of value-added to the package besides the longer work hours for the photographer which is between $1400 and $2000, $250 upgraded flowers, wardrobe convenience, and a much more colorful and lively reception.

Couture Package

Everything that Complete Package has to offer with some upgraded features, still 8-hour photography with their go-to-photographer, with 6 hours of videography, with 4-hour Photobooth.


Added a couple of thousand, the jump in pricing is worth it due to the staff working longer hours and 6-hour videography. For $7,000, it is definitely worth it. The photo booth may be a bit extra if you're into that sort of thing.

Micro Package

Up-to 25 guests, 30 min ceremony + 2-hour reception, this includes dinner, wedding cake, flowers, decor by Flora Couture[FAQ page here, Reviews Here, Instagram Here], and the same photographer for 1 hour.


This caters to elopements for the younger couples and those who want to renew their vowes. It may not be their strongest package, but it does get the job done especially during this pandemic(Feb 1, 2021)

Bride and Groom Package $1000

This may be their smallest package, but it definitely isn't less romantic, this package is for those who want to quietly get eloped, Adam Sandler style, in a golf course. Followed by a week to Hawaii then be back for the reception that you can easily get away with under $10,000

Painted Desert Golf Club

Saturday Dates Ceremony & Reception: $1995 Reception Only: $1495

Sunday - Friday Dates Ceremony & Reception: $1795 Reception Only: $1295

Four simple prices but you could be spending more depending on what look and feel you want for your wedding. A wedding coordinator is available to assist you with your planning as they have a list of preferred vendors. You may need to hire a wedding photographer. This might also be your cheaper route. You can find their Pricing here, Reviews Here, and Instagram Here

  • Canyon Gate Country Club
  • Las Vegas Mormon Temple
  • The Grove Wedding Venue
  • Emerald at Queensridge
  • Terrace Events Wedding Reception
  • Rainbow Garden

Favorite Places[112/100]

  1. Lake Las Vegas - Easily on my top list, though this is not necessarily in order, it deserves to be my number one spot for any kind of photoshoot. The beautiful bridge reminiscent of the time I went to Florence, Italy, the village-like feel with light strings that zigzag from rooftop to rooftop, the beautiful gardens, quiet lakes, the bricked lanes that seize European carpe diem.
  2. Tivoli Village - My favorite place to shoot my editorials and portraits, they have beautiful Italian inspired facades with a wonderful cafe for post-session coffee.
  3. Majestic Park - This is not necessarily your go-to-location for a photo session but is definitely my favorite when there is too much sun out and want to have even grey lighting. Perfect for editorials.
  4. Foxhill Park - If you want a beautiful skyline of Las Vegas, a beautiful shot of the mountains, and a sky that you can almost reach with your hands, I'd recommend this beautiful park. This is a fantastic location for picnics and sunsets. It also gets busy in the afternoon and it's easy to see why.
  5. Mt. Charleston Lodge Resort - The cabins and rooms are not to rave about, I honestly think that some Holiday Inns are much better than the rooms they currently have but why I have this place on this list is because of their large patio that overlooks the mountains, the cute swing set, the tall ceilings in the reception area and their beautiful lobby. I was there for a photo shoot last winter and thought it was one of the beautiful sunsets in Las Vegas.
  6. Gilcrease Orchard - This is on this list because you can't find another unique place in vegas such as the Gilcrease Orchard, this area is perfect for elopements for a couple who are green thumb enthusiasts. Also great for Instagram shots.
