punk / rock n roll / grafitti
image at TOP was taken @ The Cosmopolitan Hotel Casino, next to Bellagio, is a great place for a small intimate wedding at sunset
Fountain View Terrace Balcony Suite or any of the terrace suites on higher levels are great!

my photos are REAL PHOTOS of REAL PEOPLE of all shapes and sizes
not professional model shots.... like some shooters or chapels show you ...they do a big commercial shoot then show it as  THIER WORK...this is photography that they DONT offer in reality, to hook u in.
Chapels usually charge $1200 - $5000 for photos on disc...you only get PRINTS (normally 5x7s are $25 EACH) a normal chapel package comes with like 5 photos.....unless you spend a mint! then you may get 15 photos... Mandatory $60 to $100 tips for ministers and chapel photographers so check with them about thier HIDDEN fees....Im telling you this so you arent surprized when you arrive for your wedding ~
Flamingo Chapel for instance $399 is thier lowest priced wedding ceremony, plus $75 minister tip (mandatory) for photo package $799 is thier cheapest, hire me and pay thier $150 outside photographer  fee... and I can shoot at Flamingo, you get all photos and TONS more than you would through the chapel, plus they want additional $1000 for a DVD digital versions! OUCH! info from fall of 2013

Neon Boneyard Private photo sessions now available!
THEY charge a fairly high fee of $400 for a one hour time slot (plus my fee)
(according to the Neon Boneyard event planner) see thier website www.NeonMuseum.org ) supposedly there's a 1/2 hour professional Photgrapher package that's lower cost, up and coming, along with a second "area" that they are slowly working on, so they can have pro's shooting in the secondary Neon Boneyard, and "Tours" in the bigger one...etc contact them deirect for details....
so far cheapest way is go there with your camera or Iphone and take the cheapie tour $18 per person and take your own snapshots...  they are open 9-5 every day, they reccomend 2 weeks atleast for advance reservations for shoots, they will not book last minute or as late as one or 2 days in advance... so plan ahead!

ABOUT PAUL
my family
About Me....Paul Cichocki: of Polish / Hungarian descent..I have been shooting and processing images since 1986, professionally full time since 1997, I am easy going and personable, having worked for a multitude of years in Las Vegas, I've gained experience working under all situations, with everyone from celebities (I've met over 200 celebs while working as a busy corporate photographer in Las Vegas) to shooting for Forbes 500 corporations, to the smallest local clients...and people.
I have a wife of 12 years, 2 daughters ages 8 & 9, I'm a do-it-yourselfer that likes family camping, off roading, fishing, boating and restoring thingsI am originally from St Clair Shores Mich (near Detroit) and moved to Las Vegas in 1988 after a couple years in the US Army. my wife is from the Poconos in Pennsylvania,  I have 6 brothers and sisters, and family is important to me! I like to treat my customers like one of the family....I am not shy... and will try and raise your energy level for fun photos, by being as outgoing and funny as I can muster on the fly... I expend energy into my work....wait and see! 

I have a degree in Computer Graphic arts and worked with a prestigeous Las Vegas Photography Studio for 1 1/2 years before venturing out on my own as a professional Commercial Photographer (primarily architectural and studio work) 
Now shooting primarily as a wedding photographer for clients such as you 
see a variety of my architectural and  commercial advertising  work at www.LasVegasPix.com/home.php
I personally do any editing myself  (no outside services or vendors are used for photoshop editing), 
it gives me the opportunity to review my work and improve the photography. 

I use CANON professional cameras and lenses exclusively  I always have a backup camera with me, and 3 flashes as well, you can print posters from the image files. That being said night time can pose issues such as slow shutter speeds and sometimes things can get hectic, occosionally some images will have a little motion blur, some grain from high ISO or other related night time issues, I try and minimize all of these issues as best as I can, I'll will work hard for ....you will agree after you work with me!  RAIN WEATHER WIND HEAT can also all happen in Vegas, heat and wind being the most common, bring some water, comfy shoes (flats) in a bag for later when your feet become sore, plan approprietly.

(Where I live for the last few years) Pahrump, NV  is a rural community about 55 minutes out of Las Vegas via freeway, Pahrump is famous for the legal Brothels & "Chicken Ranches" I drive into Vegas about 3 to 7 days a week for weddings, 
we opted for a quieter country life for my wife, 2 daughters and  I.... after 23 years of living in the Las Vegas valley.

I always try to check in with my wedding clients a couple days before the wedding and also on the day of,  I either send a text message or call your hotel room, check in beforehand let you know Im On My Way! or I'll Be There! 
please feel free to check in with me as well! also the more info you share with me THE BETTER (whats the groom and brides names!) a cell phone number, perhaps a hotel that you are staying at (let me know what name you are staying under) etc...

If you never solidified a booking with me, please don't expect me to be there on the day of your wedding, as it's a long drive for me going off some  inquiry from last year etc...... I make every attempt to keep up with my clients changes and plans, sometime the wedding party forgets to actually book me! they talk but don't book...then they are like WHERES PAUL? last second... (this happened 3 times in the last 5 years) please check in with me a couple weeks prior to your day...to make sure we are on the same page...booked and that I have your details and information, I get from 1 to 10 leads per day, phone calls, emails and texts...things can get confused sometimes so lets both keep up with making sure your day is planned and goes smoothly! no suprises for either of us! ;-) Many times I will tell people "I have you PENCILED in, I do that so if someone else asks me for that day/time, I can then contact the client that emailed/calleed me 1rst...giving the 1rst contactee priority....it is not a solid booking though, (as I don't or didn't get an answer from them as a ...YES IM BOOKED etc...just inquiries....I hate to see a problem arise so lets help each other out :-)
I'm a man of my word....No Contracts necessary!! 99% are no contract shoots

but if you prefer one ,I can send you our standard contract with your details via email

Cancellations, please let me know about the changes or cancellation, if possoble,  at-least 2 hours prior to the time you booked me so I don't waste the one hour drive into Vegas, I wont get mad for you cancelling, I'd much rather get a phone call than drive 2 hours roundtrip plus gas and wait 45 minutees somewhere calling you in vain.  You don't owe me anything, except common courtesy, THANK YOU in adavance for that
