Oroville CA, Wedding Photographer Honker Bay: Brian And Brandy Kerr

Brandy and Brian were such a fun couple to work with! We had had so much fun at their engagement session in Burney Falls and we were soo excited when the Big Day finally rolled around! As expected, their wedding was even more wonderful than the engagement shoot!!! 

Brandy is a naturally playful person and when she told us that she wanted to pull a prank on Brian, we were all for it! She had borrowed a, let’s say, dated, wedding dress from a friend and asked us to photograph her groom’s reaction during their First Look. Beforehand, she had told Brian how much she LOVED her dress and hoped he wouldn’t make fun of her and Brian, being the absolute sweetheart that he is, didn’t falter for a moment! Their First Look was so tender and sweet in a beautiful vineyard at their venue, Honker Bay. Little did Brian know that he was in for another surprise when she walked down the aisle in her REAL wedding gown!

Brandy was a vision as she walked down the aisle and only had eyes for Brian. They shared touching vows, a few tears of happiness and joy, then they were husband and wife!

Their reception was incredible; these two have so many people in their lives that care for them and the speeches given were all heartfelt and spoken with great love. Following speeches, there was a breathtaking sunset which beautifully framed Brandy and Brian as we stole them away for just a few more photos! The rest of the evening was full of laughter, dancing, and so much fun!!!

Thank you Brandy and Brian for allowing Jena and I to capture your gorgeous wedding! 

Nevada City Ca, Wedding Photographer Miner's Foundry Cultural Center: Mr. and Mrs. Coady

Jack and Sarah brought so many new and exciting aspects to their wedding experience! For one thing, while they loved my overall photography style, they also asked for some highly romantic and dramatic style to be added. I was so excited to have a new challenge! The fact that they chose to have their wedding at the stunningly beautiful Miner’s Foundry Cultural Center in charming Nevada City made the challenge almost effortless. 

While the venue was gorgeous, it was the way that Jack and Sarah looked at each other that truly stands out to Jena and I. The love that shines through as they gaze at one another is what made their photos remarkable; and the way Jack looked at her as she walked down the aisle was pure bliss!

We also had a lovely surprise when, as we were taking photos of the wedding party after the ceremony, we were approached by a nearby business owner who offered to us the use of his nearby courtyard! The hospitality and generosity of Mountain Pastimes were a wonderful and much appreciated surprise to the bride and groom. The climbing ivy and vintage lamppost were the ideal setting to capture the drama and romance that our couple was looking for!

To top it all off, we were awarded a beautiful sunset to complete their photos as we walked back to the Foundry.

From there, they enjoyed the rest of the evening surrounded by delicious traditional Irish food, heartfelt toasts given by loved ones, dancing, and scrumptious cupcakes made by the sister of the groom! 

We hope you love seeing the memories of Jack and Sarah’s wedding as much as we loved capturing them!

Chico Wedding Photographer: TJ Farms Estate. Mr. & Mrs. Williams!

Jeff and Krystle had a very lucky wedding day.  The weather was raining most of the week and was projected to be raining all day of their wedding.  The Weather graced us with a window to do outdoor photos and soon after resumed the pitter patter.  Watching these two connect through out the day was inspiring and electric with happiness but calm with their comfort in each other.  I am so pleased to have met the both of them and their friends an family.  Please enjoy some of their wedding photos.  

Cheers to the both of you and many years!

Anderson Wedding Photographer: Gover Ranch Jason and Holly Thatcher!

I JUST HAVE TO START BY SAYING WE HAD A BALL!  This wedding was incredible and a blast!  The day couldn't have been more beautiful, it was a sunny day that broke up the rainstorms that hit northern California.  Holly and Jason were both nervous the morning leading up to their wedding.  Their first look eased all of their nerves and love filled the air.  Holly's spunky sweet attitude complemented with Jason's quieter quick witted humor left Jena and I giggling throughout the day.  It is safe to say we were in wonderful company during our work day, so was it really work?!  I just love this wedding and I hope you do too!

Nevada City Photographer: Schrammsberg Estate Wedding Ian and Caitlin

This wedding was incredibly special to me.  My cousin Ian and his bride Caitlin chose me to photograph their wedding.  I am so honored to have been such a crucial part of such an important day.  The day started with busy morning set up and moved into hair and make up.  The men were down putting the finishing touches on the ceremony site and once done, played a few games of corn bag toss.  The gals chatted and laughed, oohhh'd and Awe'd.  The air was electric with excitement and love.   The couple wrote letters, shared gifts, and relaxed with their closest friends.  The first look was like a scene from a movie, stunning all who witnessed the breathtaking moment.  Sharing unique and beautiful vows, hand fast with the family tartan, and married before family and friends; the Ferrell's shared a sureness, a depth, their love.  The evening followed with lots of dancing from slow, quick, to funky  because this couple knew how to get all of their guests on the dance floor.

CHEERS TO IAN AND CAITLIN!

I wish you both life long happiness!

Mr. And Mrs. Lucanic!

Upon meeting this couple I could see how they compliment each other.  During their ceremony their officiant/friend said a few words about the relationship between Jim and Megan, he spoke about how when Megan spoke of Jim she would light up, and for a quiet person she sure had a lot of good things to say.  As for Jim people openly spoke about the kindness and love he shares with Megan and how he has clearly fallen head over heels for her.  Their story of how they met was wonderful and was explained during a rap from their bridesmaid Ashley,  She spoke about how Megan transferred to chico dispatch and she caught Jim's eye.  It was just a little time before they would be walking down the isle and sharing their vows.  So here we are, please enjoy Jim and Megan's wedding day! 

Mr. and Mrs. Kester

This wedding was so much fun surrounded by light hearts and filled with so much love.  Everyone was in high spirits supporting the union of these two wonderful people.  Jess and Greg were both so calm and cool filled with beaming excitement that they were getting married.  Cheers to you both may you remember every moment of this wonderful day!
