The List for Wedding Venues in Amador County.

What are the top and best Amador County wedding venues?

As a wedding photographer who lives in Amador County, I have photographed many of popular wedding venues. Further, my adventure photography takes me all around the world, even to Mount Everest in 2017. I travel and photograph primarily in Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park. However, I still capture many local weddings here. Certainly, Amador County is the biggest little secret in northern California. It’s the new Napa without all the added costs. While quaint and charming, Amador County has many gorgeous properties and venues for all couples. They all have different flavors for everyone.


Advice on Wedding Venues in Amador

To clarify, I have made this list because engaged couples and families have asked me my advice. Thus, which wedding venue should you choose? Which property looks the best? Which venue allows a lot of people? As a result, I have compiled a list of venues in Amador County in which you all should consider. Yes, there are venues and private properties, but these the most booked. Just to familiarize yourself, Amador County consists of Sutter Creek, Plymouth, Jackson, Pioneer, Ione, and even up to Kirkwood, Ca.

Let’s talk and get you started.


Kaitlin and Evan from Lake Tahoe Wedding

Charleton absolutely blew us away with his incredible eye and ability to capture our moments! He did an absolutely incredible job not only on the wedding day but in making our engagement shoot special and a ton of fun. He was a pleasure to work with in the fun up, always understanding of the pressure we had from all the various vendors and by far among the easiest to work with. He's an awesome guy to boot! Highly recommend, you can trust him with such an important job.

Kaitlin and Evan from Lake Tahoe Wedding

Charleton is absolutely amazing! He has a great eye for bringing out the surrounding natural beauty in every single setting. His shots are unique and overwhelmingly beautiful. Charleton shot for my husband's sister's wedding and immediately after seeing her pictures we decided to book him for both our engagement shoot and wedding. He was actually the first vendor we booked for our wedding, having him be a part of our big day was that much of a priority for us. His work speaks for itself, but what the pictures don't show is the amount of great energy and love Charleton also brings to the shoot/big day. He makes you feel like a rockstar and pushes the envelope for location and approach of each picture. Couldn't recommend him enough, every minute you receive from Charleton is professional, genuine and of the utmost quality.

Chelsie and Josh from Big Sur Elopement in California

My husband and I had the honor of having Mr. Churchill be our adventure wedding photographer. Our experience with Mr Churchill was complete bliss from the beginning. He was always quick to respond to all emails and communications. He made us feel completely comfortable, and was able to capture our wedding day in the most magical way, that went above and beyond our expectation. The level of expertise and vision Mr. Churchill provides is out of this world. We were honored to have him be apart of our special day.
