Arnold Wedding Photographer
Driving into the woodsy forest back-roads for this mountain wedding was a great anticipation. Arnold, California is a small historic town near Murphy’s with many trees. Big Trees State Park is located in Arnold, a popular tourist attraction.
I had met Mike and Laura earlier in the year and they told me they wanted a mountain wedding photographer to document their backwoods wedding day event. Mountain weddings are my passion. I had photographed this charming Calaveras wedding venue before back in 2010, and I was glad to experience it once again. The smells of pine and dirt, the surroundings of trees, the colors of earth, and the excitement of photographic possibilities.
Not only did we capture their story with friends and family, but they allowed us time to capture their creative bride and groom photos in the forest where we ventured along a river and into the woods. We came upon a rather large tree of lady bugs; I have never fathomed I could see so many all at once.
Later that evening, even though there were trees surrounding us and the sky was like circular window above us, I was able to capture a night time stars photo with our wedding couple. I am excited to share these images because of the “nature” of this wedding. (wink).
Here’s an extra credit photo from my cell phone I screen captured from a video I recorded of the tree covered in Lady bugs.
