Hidden in the Redwoods of the bay area’s oldest picnic facility is a gem called the Saratoga Springs.  This is where Nick and Annalesa married last month and I was grateful to document their perfect wedding day.

This couple showed up to my door in Amador County ready to have their engagement photographs taken when all of sudden it started raining. Despite the unexpected conditions, they were up for getting photos wherever and even getting wet,…and of course, so was I. We first went downtown to shoot under shelter, but then soon decided to head over to the river to get wet and shoot in the rain. In fact, both Nick and Annalesa volunteered to get in the water with their clothes in the rain, getting his new leather boots soaked and her dress wet. It was all for the shot we kept saying, and so it was…
