We are Ken and Vesta Douglas and we are Wedding Shots. No matter how big or small your wedding, we would love to be the photographers on your special day. We are located in gorgeous Reno, Nevada and we are willing to travel anywhere to shoot your wedding.
Vesta is an excellent portrait photographer and loves shooting children as well as weddings and Ken shoots in sort of a photojournalistic style, so if you use us, you’ll be getting two different styles of photography. Vesta shoots in color, Ken does too, but he processes a lot of his photos in black and white, so between the two of us, you’ll get an artistic and natural blend of photographic styles.
We believe wedding photography is an art unto itself and that photographers are like painters, using a camera instead of brush and easel. What we see through the view finder is our canvas. We look for candid looks, subtle nuance and raw emotion. Some shots are obvious, some are not. Anybody with a camera can take the obvious photos, we like to think, because we’ve been shooting for so long, that we can find those special shots, the pictures you’ll cherish your whole life through, the ones your children will one day show your grandchildren.
When documenting a wedding we like to start with the bride, so we can capture the moments leading up to the ceremony—make up, wedding dress, zipping it up, shots with the bride and bridesmaids and any other behind the scenes shots, you know, the butterflies and excitement kind. We believe these shots are as important to telling the story of your wedding day as the actual wedding itself.
During your special day we try to blend in, but there will be a few times when we have to position people for portraits. We will try to do this as politely and as efficiently as possible, because although we know you want portraits, you don’t want a photographer getting in the way.
Lastly we know that selecting a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you can make for your wedding. After the music has faded, the dances are over, and the cake is gone, you’ll be left with your photographs and your memories. We hope once you look at our work you will have the confidence to use us as your wedding photographers. If you pick us, we won’t just show up for a couple hours, we’ll be there the whole day through, till the last song’s been sung, till the bride and groom drive away with that just married sign on the back of their car.
We’ve posted several photos here for you to check out. We've also included links to our welcome pages on the right to our other websites and more of our photos. If our work looks like what you may be looking for on your wedding day, please give us a call at 775 393-9529.
Thank you for considering us,
Ken and Vesta
