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 California Engagement Photographer: Sarah and Jack Upper Bidwell Park

Jack and Sarah are two people I absolutely love being around!  We have had two consultations and we talk business for about the first 10 minutes and end up closing the restaurant we meet at.  Time just flies by when we're chatting and I honestly can say that the connections we've created shows in this very relaxed and comfortable shoot.  I am so pleased to work with these two and gain them as friends.  Please enjoy Jack and Sarah's Engagement photos.

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!
