NEON MUSEUM TO HOST SPECIALLY PRICED MINI-PHOTO SHOOTS
TO CELEBRATE SIXTH BIRTHDAY, OCT. 27
LAS VEGAS (September 2018) – With its iconic collection full of varicolored, vintage signs, the Neon Museum offers a unique and vibrant backdrop for photo and video shoots of all kinds. To celebrate the museum’s birthday, Saturday, Oct. 27, the public is invited to take advantage of a limited opportunity to schedule specially priced, 15-minute photo shoots in the world-famous Boneyard—the very same one that has lured famous performers, film producers and internationally known fashion magazines for years.
From 12 to 4:30 p.m., couples and families can book mini-photo sessions for just $150 in the museum’s picturesque North Gallery. This rate includes a professional photographer’s fee; guests who book the photo shoot may include up to 10 people in the shoot and will receive up to five select digital images delivered via email following the session. Reservations and payment must be paid in advance. For reservations, please email email@example.com and mention the “Celebration Shoot” in the email. Additional photos and cards will also be available for purchase directly through the photographer.
