Love At First Sight: Dez and Taylor’s American River Resort Wedding

To believe in the power of love at first sight is one thing, but to trust it enough to propose to someone after knowing them for just six weeks is something completely different. The probabilities of meeting that person might not be high, but it’s exactly what happened to Dez and Taylor - and their love is proof that it’s real. After convincing Taylor that he was serious about his proposal (and brushing off the response from a child passing by who told him that he shouldn’t ask Taylor to be his wife - not the answer he planned on getting), the couple opted to elope, using their day at the American River Resort in Coloma, California as a chance to celebrate with friends and family.

In lieu of the traditional way most couples do wedding ceremonies, Dez and Taylor went the laid-back route. Their wedding ceremony, much more of a celebration than a huge event, was super cozy and joyful. The American River Resort proved to be the perfect scenic site for the down-to-earth, beach-loving couple - capturing incredible pictures was easy. Not only was the fall weather perfect, but the two couldn’t stop making each other laugh - a photographer’s dream.

From the sunset forest ceremony that overlooked the American River to toasts that made everyone laugh, each moment felt meant-to-be and special. To match the fun-loving vibe, the dessert assortment was out of this world, including doughnuts, s’mores and, of course, cake. The couple and their small group of guests (about 50 in total) danced the night away under the stars.

An Opportunity to Reconnect: Adventure Session with Sarah + Steve

We had the pleasure of going on an impromptu adventure with Sarah and Steve in order to test out some of our newest equipment. The results were stunning not only to the fancy new gear, but mainly because Sarah and Steve thoroughly enjoyed adventuring into the wild as a couple. As a couple ourselves, we know how easy it is to fall into habits and schedules, which is why adventure sessions are truly a gift.

Although Sarah and Steve have lived in the area for years, they had never been out to this specific area, which made it all the more fun to explore. And is just proof that, no matter how well you think you know something (or someone), there’s always something new and exciting to discover!

As we began to explore the High Sierras in Lake Tahoe, it was easy to see just how much Steve really cares for Sarah. His attention to her as we made our way off the trail to forge our own path was sweet to watch. Along the way they exchanged jokes (, some whiskey) and they even danced together along the rocky trail. The adventure session truly was an opportunity for them to reconnect with each other - and nature. And, because of that, we were able to capture their magic as the sun went down.
