Nestled in a small part of Amador County, California is a rustic intimate place called Volcano, which has many trees, rivers, old buildings, old trucks, rocks, a small park, and main street which used to host a large population of gold miners in the late 1800’s.  Nick and Caitlin married in Volcano last month and we had the privilege of documenting their romantic wedding story in this charming humble town.  Their love for each was evident in the all the photos we took.  What was inspiring was the arch made from manzanita which Nick built with his constructive skills, to add flavor to their small town woodsy styled wedding.  I could photograph rustic mountain weddings all my life and never get bored. Anything with lakes, rivers, trees, mountains, rocks, decaying buildings, lodges, cabins, nature, etc., you name it, I’m all into that stuff.  Nick and Caitlin chose a perfect place to showcase their wedding day and many would be jealous of all the beauty here.  Amador County is the new Napa of California.  Many couples from the city are realizing how beautiful and inexpensive this place is to have their wedding with all the wineries and vineyards in the Shenandoah valley, so it is rapidly growing.  Congratulations to Nick and Caitlin.  Here are some images from their lovely day in Volcano, California.

We were expecting cold and cloudy.  What actually came on Friday was warm and sunny (but cloudy later).  Blake and Melissa couldn’t have had a better day than to celebrate their commitment and union as one with friends and family at Carmel beach California.  I had photographed their engagement session only recently at the Folsom Lake beach as they desired the beach theme in everything.  This has classy written all over it.  Melissa’s dress, her mother, all the bridesmaids and flower girls dresses were all custom-designed by the impressive Miosa Couture.  Our team was welcomed and enjoyed covering their wedding with this warm and friendly crowd.  Congratulations to Blake and Melissa, family, and friends.
