It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to shoot Amanda and Dustin's wedding at the end of May. Back when we did their engagement shoot, we were impressed by the chemistry the two of them share and how lovingly they interact with each other. We knew that their wedding would be beautiful, as it is always is when a couple that is so obviously in love makes a lifelong commitment to each other. That love inevitably comes through in the images from their day.
That day also marked the first official day of summer vacation for Melody from teaching, and a return to the stomping grounds of her youth in Sonora. Amanda and Dustin had actually found a place she had never even seen - the Tuolumne County Historical Society, which has a lovely brick-enclosed courtyard with ivy climbing the walls and some gorgeous trees nestled about. What's more, the venue itself is free, though reservations are made for days on a first-come, first-served basis! Amanda then transformed the courtyard even further with details that were evocative somehow of the French countryside.
We wish Dustin and Amanda a life full of love and joy - from the way they look at each other, that wish is sure to be granted.
