Meet the team: Vincent
Updated: Oct 30, 2019
Hey guys, Jameson the pup here! During one of our board meetings last week, we discussed the importance of getting to know the New Romantix team. So I was tasked with the responsibility of getting the interviews taken care of. I sat down with co-owner and lead photographer of New Romantix, Vincent Landin.
He walked in with a half empty bottle of whiskey and a bag of tacos. I could tell he had been partying the night before.
My fur dad Vincent has been working his butt off in the wedding industry since 2011. While employed with several local photography companies, he was able to photograph over 6,000 weddings. Through this, he met Jazmin while she was working at one the busiest chapels on the strip. They both shared a passion for weddings and bonded over the desire to create unique experiences for fun-loving couples. Jazmin and Vincent have been working hard towards their goal and continue to enjoy what they do best...Marrying all of you beautiful people and giving me tummy rubs.
Check out Vincent's dirty little secrets below!
What job would you want to have if you weren't a photographer?
A chef! I love to cook. Being able to create something awesome and then eat it. It's such a great satisfaction.
What job would you be terrible at?
I feel like any job that heavily relies on Microsoft Excel. My brain would melt. I also suck at emails, sorry for my typos guys.
What skill would you like to master?
So back to food. I would really love to master gourmet cooking. Or maybe expand on the knowledge I have on playing the guitar.
What’s your favorite drink?
Besides water, beer or whiskey.
Who’s your go to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?
Oh man, that's a tough one. I usually tune into my "Roy Orbison" station on my Pandora. It's a compilation of Sun Record artists and some old school punk rock.
What do you want to be remembered for?
I would like my art to be remembered. If not, then my flat butt would be a close 2nd.
Most memorable wedding so far? Good or bad.
I think all of my weddings are memorable :) BUT, last summer I was honored to shoot a wedding for Lush Events Productions. During bridal party photos, I had the groomsmen and groom hold up the bride (see photo below). I've done this shot multiple times and I've never had a problem. However I took a brief second to check my camera, when all of a sudden, I look up and see that the bride on the ground. The groomsmen somehow lost grip and dropped our bride.... WHOOPS lol
Thankfully, the bride was perfectly fine and was able laugh it off. She even requested the footage from the videographer to share the hilarious moment with her friends and family for years to come.
What is your favorite bar/restaurant in Las Vegas?
My favorite bar here in town would have to be Frankie's Tiki Room, the drinks are cheap and they are strong! Favorite restaurant would have to be Yama Sushi or Taco y Taco!
Biggest challenge you face when working a wedding?
I think the biggest challenge for any wedding vendor is help keeping the event on time. Especially as the photographer, I gotta make sure I don't keep the bride and groom from their reception. They paid a lot of money, so I make sure they get to enjoy it!
Secret weapon in your camera bag?
My camera? haha I recently purchased a flash disk that gives me super soft light and is very light and portable. I can sneak it in corners or carry it in my hand for impromptu group shots or candids. I love it.
What do you like about your job as a wedding photographer?
It's just really cool. Being able to help capture and create those memories on one of their biggest days is such a cool experience. I think the different personalities that I get to encounter is my favorite. We always feel like we're hanging out with friends versus a client.
Tip you wish every bride/groom should know before planning a wedding?
Just have fun on the day of. Don't let the small things ruin your day. The day goes by so fast and the less you worry, the more you can enjoy!
We believe in the crazy, the passionate, the can't keep your hands off each other type of love. We are romantics at heart, and our goal is to bring back the excitement of getting hitched in Vegas.
New Romantix can plan your pop up wedding at a brewery, garden, downtown bar, chocolate factory, winery, antique shop, gazebo, lakeside, in your suite, or even out in the desert. The options are endless! This type of wedding is for the fun loving, no fuss, zero stress couple looking for a unique wedding experience. If you feel your special day should revolve around the vows you exchange rather than the color linen you choose, this type of ceremony just might be for you.
Leave the traditional in the past...
Say hello to the new, romantic age of Las Vegas weddings.
