Sacramento and Elk Grove Wedding Photographer from Amy Atkins Photography in Sacramento, Elk Grove, Roseville, El Dorado Hills, and other surrounding areas

Mike and Vanessa are the true example of a loving connection. You can just see how each of them are wild for the other. And Mike. The true gentleman for sure. Vanessa – so sweet and loving and kind to all from the big to the small.

This was seriously a wedding I couldn’t stop laughing and having a great time – especially at the reception! It is hard to narrow down those photos to which ones I blog! But alas, I had to narrow it down. The couple got sooo many fun candids from it.

Their vows were sweet and I couldn’t help but to shed a tear.

Los Altos History Museum was a lovely venue with an amazing courtyard!

Enjoy these photos from prep to finish! I enjoyed working with them a ton! 2016-07-05_0020.jpg

What a beautiful day for a beautiful couple to get married! This was like a fairy tale in Ione at the Heirloom Inn. The pinks and greens and glitz and glam were perfectly put together for a princess.

Jacob is a funny guy and Solveig is gracious and sweet. They are the perfect example of our two different pieces come together to make a whole unit of harmony.

This is the second time at this venue and I just love using it.

Jacob and Solveig your wedding was amazing. You two are amazing together. Cheers to your new future together!

This was such a love-filled wedding with special touches and personal stories. It was almost like walking through a storybook of their lives together and what is to come.

Mnoza and Amanda met during a mission trip to Africa. There was a special orphanage there where they served together. It was the perfect match because if Amanda was to continue missionary trips, it was to be with someone who did the same and had a huge passion for it.

The theme of the wedding was Where in the World because their future together was to travel to different countries to serve the Lord in different places. And of course, how they met was pretty out of this world ๐Ÿ™‚

The way Mnoza looked at her was so precious. And the way he cried during the ceremony just showed his heart for her. It was a touching moment. Their vows were so personal that there was not a dry eye in the area! Phew! It was hard to focus! ๐Ÿ™‚

The reception was so fun filled. The personal stories kept coming. And then the party started! It was time to exit – with bubbles! That looks so nice with the right kind of light I have.

Congrats to Mnoza and Amanda! It was a blast to serve you!

Rob and Rachel are one of those couples you just can’t get enough of both together and separately. Their whole event was filled with love from family and friends (who were like family) on both sides.

First the gals were getting ready at the spa located at Wine and Roses. What a fantastic venue for sure! I enjoyed the seclusion and the beautiful grounds. Soooo many awesome photo locations!

Rachel did NOT want a Christmas wedding since it was a few days before Christmas…we were able to pull it off for her. I don’t see any Christmas trees in here ๐Ÿ™‚ But she did want a candlight ceremony which was just beautiful and amazing. The rain outside didn’t damper the cozy mood inside the venue.

My favorite moments: the tears that streamed down my face when they “flash mob” sang a blessing over them – “May the Lord Bless you and Keep you”. It was sung together like a professional choir and just sent chills down my spine!
And who couldn’t love that confetti ending…they did their last dance and swirled up around them and on three threw the confetti. LOVE!!!! Great photo opportunity in case you can’t do sparklers.

I wish you the best Rob and Rachel! You are loved!

I enjoyed my session here at the Davis Arboretum with Jacob + Solveig! It is seriously my new favorite time to go there. Fall was blazing through the trees and the air was crisp and the lighting was perfectly diffused for me with the clouds. It was 10am and although any time of day works there, there is different lighting at different times so some areas are just not good if it is too sunny. BUT I had no sun! So we were able to use anything we wanted to and have beautiful soft light!

I am so excited for their wedding in April at the Heirloom Inn! It will be my second time shooting there from a year and a quarter ago with Josh + Amber. I love that place and can’t wait to do it again!

Jacob and Solveig are so adorable together and they balance each other so perfectly. Jacob is the comedic relief for sure and we just laughed the whole time. My kind of shoot!

Enjoy these photos! Congrats J + S!
