We met in Sutter Creek to capture the beginnings of Andrea and Trevor’s wedding day story, from their home to Bella Grace. Sutter Creek is a small town main street kind of town with old buildings, hospitable people with good hearts, and the love of hard work and family etched in the history of this place. Trevor and Andreas wedding was filled with much of these attributes. With a happy and relaxed attitude, they celebrated with close friends and family in an intimate Amador County backyard which showcased green trees, flowers, rich blue skies, and a grand view of them mountains. I love this place. Congratulations to Trevor and Andrea, and their families.

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.
