I’m not going to lie, it’s been great photographing local weddings the last three weeks, not having to drive too far.  This last weekend I photographed Jason and Kelly’s wedding in Murphys California at Laraine Winery.  It was a unique wedding even though I had photographed another wedding there a few years ago.  If lightening and thunderous skies weren’t cool enough for an outside wedding, it was the dust in the wind that blew us away, both literally and metaphorically.  With all the Jason-Kelly Love and the atmospheric conditions , we were able to capture some beautiful light photographs as well as the dramatic magazine photographs.  Here are some images from this weekend. (I’m just including the first part of the day here in this blog, and not the reception event). Enjoy!

I love photographing local Amador County weddings because there’s so much scenic beauty around the area with old rustic barns, plenty of winery’s, and old buildings out in the meadows, plus I love being closer to my family and home. This wedding with Carlos and Leslie at the Sierra Ridge Vineyards and Winery followed along that same unique Amador County charm, in Sutter Creek.

Carlos and Leslie booked us about a year ago. Leslie had many questions to ask with her folder out, and going down her list. She was excited about her wedding day and wanted to be all prepared and organized. They planned their wedding well. They had the famous photo booth setup and a killer mariachi band (among other items)! The Sierra Ridge Vineyards and Winery provided some elegant lighting for the evening festivities, speeches, dances, and the slideshow.

It was great to stay local and not have to fly or drive too far! Here are some images from Carlos and Leslie’s Amador County wedding.
