Amanda and Cameron are both from California but met in college in Idaho – but as corny as it sounds I have to say, I think they are a match made in Heaven. They just feel right together. He proposed at the Sacred Grove in Palmyra, New York and they married on the 10th March in the Oakland, California Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Patricia and I were fortunate enough to do a couples shoot with them at the end of February and we both remarked how natural they were with us having our huge lenses in their faces and all. I suspect it had nothing to do with feeling comfortable in front of the camera, but being so totally into each other they didn’t really notice we were there.
And that’s the way it should be.
We were excited to photograph their wedding and to have our friend and colleague Marcy shooting with us too. We love her and were delighted to see her behind the camera again, a spot that suits her very well.
The day really was all about celebration, a treat of colour, fun, love and laughter. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, I love photographing weddings because I love to be around that celebratory energy, it is quite intoxicating. It’s an honour to be a part of the start of history making for this new family.
Best wishes to you both, I’m sure you guys will be just fine! -aroha.
The bride got ready at her parents lovely home in San Jose a midst the brothers looking for ties, the girls looking for shoes and Dad reminders of the time ticking by… it was a flurry of excitement and activity. Whereas a very relaxed hotel room was the scene for the groom preparations.
The temple looked beautiful in it’s spring colours where they met to join together with family and friends to be sealed for time and all eternity.
