Angels Camp Wedding Photography
Greenhorn Creek Resort
Photographer:  Charleton Churchill Photography

Seth and Courtney’s wedding was dynamite, and I think we blew it up!  Photographed at the Greenhorn Creek Resort, which by the way, I didn’t even know existed, this place is high class, like some sort of secret society on the other side of town in Angel’s Camp, California.  When we arrived, we pulled up to a strangers home, thinking we had arrived at the bridesmaid’s home for getting ready photos (google iphone map led me there).  I knocked on the door and a nice lady yelled, “Come on in!”

I opened the door and this woman was sitting in a chair, smiling, and I believe sewing.  She asked how she could help me? (odd I know, but kind).  I asked if Courtney was here? She just smiled and said, “she lives right up the hill!” My 2nd photographer was laughing behind me.  Then she said, “I’ll see you at the wedding though.”

So, we drove off down the road, looking for an “up-the-hill” area and most of it was flat and going downhill.  So, after a mile of driving, we turned around to head back to our original Google mapped area, and guess who chased me down, and pulled in right behind me?   That’s right!  That wonderful lady sewing in the chair! She saw me head off in the wrong direction, and then chased me down.  I tell you this, not because I thought I was in Texas again, but because this is the kind of people, town, and couple I worked with on their special day! So, helpful, humble, and hospitable people.

Wonderful people.  Wonderful couple. Wonderful day. Here are few highlights from their wedding.

Pine Grove, California Engagement Session
Amador County Wedding Photographer
Destination of 2012 Wedding:  Union Hill Inn, Sonora, ,Ca.

Here are a few Amador County sneak peeks from yesterday’s rustic engagement session with Randy and Lisa.  I traveled up the street to Lisa’s parent’s property in Pine Grove.  The whole family got involved, which was unique, because it doesn’t happen very often.  Beautiful scenic views everywhere, which is why I love these charming small towns which encompass the Motherlode area.  Randy and Lisa are getting married in Sonora, California and the Union Hill Inn.  I had a fun time getting to know them (and their family).  Cheers to the future of this happy couple.
