Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel may be the only place in town where your guests are welcome to take photos during your ceremony. From their seats, that is! That’s just because our own photographer with be shooting pictures and video and running around to get the best angles– He/she won’t want to be crashing into other photographers, or worse, tripping them!
The pews are very close to the altar, though, and you’ll be able to get some nice shots from the comfort of your seat.
Once your ceremony is finished, there is a 10-15 minute photo session inside the chapel for the formally posted shots. During this time, we will ask your guests NOT to take pictures. That’s when our photographers do their most “serious” work. However, once that’s done, everyone goes outside in the front of our chapel where the couple’s names will be in lights on our outdoor marquee, high above the Las Vegas Strip! Now THAT is one GREAT photo op, and your guests can shoot photos to their hearts’ content again!
We are also likely the only chapel in town that will allow you to bring in your own professional photographer, instead of ours. There’s an upcharge for this, because we still have to pay our photographer to be present. Also, we have to figure in a certain amount for photos we WON’T be selling to you. (It’s all part of business, folks, to be honest…but we like to give you the opportunity to have your own photographer, if you truly prefer it.) This is a rarely requested option, but if you plan to bring your own photographer and not include our photographer in your package, please let us know at the time of the booking. The staff will give you an exact price at that time, so there won’t be any surprises. 702-384-0771
