Boudoir Louisville visits the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas!

About 10 years ago I started hearing rumors about this magical place in Las Vegas where they stored all the old neon signs. The place was a mystery. A few years ago, it was decided that a museum of sorts would be opened to showcase all of these signs. The Neon Boneyard was born!
Today, the Neon Boneyard gives tours and also rents out the whole place by the hour for photo shoots as well as movies.
I've been wanting to visit this place forever! What could be more perfect than shooting classic Las Vegas themed pinup girl photos at the Neon Boneyard?
I booked flights for the whole Boudoir Louisville team and we made a long weekend out of it.
I had originally booked the place for 2 hours, but things got a little goofed up.
The day of our shoot, Vegas was experiencing sustained 40mph winds with 60mph gusts.
When this happens, they shut the whole place down. The signs are BIG and flat and could blow over crushing our pinup girl!
This meant that we flew to Vegas for no reason, we were not going to be able to shoot.
With a little fast-talkin' and a couple bats of the eyelashes, we figured out a game plan.
We arrived at 7am before the park opened. We shot for an hour then hopped on our airplane back to Louisville! Somehow we managed to shoot 2 outfits in various locations in this short amount of time.
We also shot a HILARIOUS behind the scenes video as well. As soon as I have time to edit the thing, I will be posting it to our blog as well.
Stay tuned for more!
