Hello, welcome to my first blog post. My name is Yanelys Thomas and I am a Professional and Licensed Photographer specializing in Weddings and Quinceañeras, also I am an Event Coordinator, and the Owner of two beautiful wedding venues Skyview Banquet Hall and Sunset Castle in Las Vegas NV and Henderson NV. I am so excited to finally start this blog, I live a pretty exciting life and work takes a huge part of it, and I want to share with you all the fun I get to be part of.
A little about myself. I was born in Habana, Cuba and moved to the United States when I was 12 years old. I married the love of my life when I was only 19 and He has been my best friend ever since. We have a sassy, spoiled, princess together she is the light of our world. I’m close with my mom she is my best friend and confident and the one that supports me with all my crazy dreams to come true. My family means the world to me and I wouldn’t be the person that I am today without them.
My love for Weddings started when I got to attend my own wedding. I decided years after that, I wanted to be part of other people’s happiness. When I get to see the dad secretly cry on the first dance or the mom help her little girl get ready for the big day, It gets me every time. My love for Photography follow soon after that since I realize how precious it is to capture all those memories. I love that Brides will look at the photographs that I take and they will relive the moment over and over.
My blog will be about Events I coordinate at my venues and photography projects I do with famous designers and amazing Makeup Artist here in Las Vegas. I do get lucky enough to get to travel sometimes for work and I love being able to get a fresh canvas to create art for my portfolio.
Well I consider myself pretty lucky to have a job or many “jobs” that always keep me in my toes. I love what I do and every single day that I get to wake up and start a new day doing what I’m destined for is a blessing.
I hope this sneak peek into my world, inspires you in some way and that you enjoy reading this Blog.
