Chico Ca Wedding Photographer: Travis and Jessie McCarthy


Jessie and Travis have been together for 9 years, going through life’s many adventures together and encouraging one another to follow their ambitions.  Jessie and Travis share a passion for fly fishing which has brought them together for many different exciting trips and time shared doing something they both love.  It has been a great pleasure to witness their love and appreciation for one another.  Jena and I first met with Jessie and Travis for breakfast and the we took a trip up Highway 32, hitting the meadows near the creek and later they geared up for a few casts into the creek.  Through our day Jena and I kept saying how beautiful that day was and how much fun we were having.  That was just the preview of how wonderful their wedding day would be.  


September 8, 2018 we joined Travis at the barbershop where he was getting cleaned up for the big day ahead.  He and his groomsmen joked and chatted before heading off to Centerville estates where they would have a few drinks play some ping pong and pool before Travis would see his Bride to be.  


Meanwhile, Jessie and her girls were enjoying champagne and being pampered in a suite at Hotel Dimond. Jessie was glowing.  The girls moved from hair to make up sharing stories, jokes and memories.  Jessies mom watched Jessie intently throughout the morning, staying light hearted but also clearly so proud of her little girl.  The morning was filled with a lightness that made every moment special. 


Jessie and Travis shared their first look at the Honey Run Covered Bridge.  When Travis turned to see his bride his face lit up with such happiness and excitement it brought Jena and I to tears.  Travis and Jessie decided to share their personal vows during their first look.  They both shared such striking sentiments to one another with confidence and passion. (Again not a dry eye)   


The ceremony was one of many laughs and giggles as the officiant shared the individuals adventures before reconnecting with each other.  The evening proceeded with many more laughs and memories shared.  The toasts were heartfelt and some sassy but even those who couldn’t make it were honored and remembered.  This wedding wasn’t just a day for “I Do’s” it was a day where everyone celebrated two wonderful people becoming one, full of heartfelt blessings and so much love.  


It was a great honor for Jena and I to be a part of this day.  We absolutely adore you both!

Cheers to many wonderful years!
