Hume Lake Wedding Photographer- Catie & Aaron

Wow where do I start? This wedding was an amazing two day experience. I have been photographing Catie since she was a little girl. (That’s when you know your getting old) I was honored that they asked me to be apart of Catie and Aaron’s destination wedding in Hume Lake CA. This was my first time being to the sequoia national forest.Hume Lake is like its own little village in the middle of the giant sequoia forest. The views of the lake and canon are breathtaking. So many picture spots that I had to really narrow down my selections for this blog post. If you get a chance you should explore this wonderful area of California.
So now onto the wedding day…. Catie and Aaron opted for a first look session due to it being a December wedding with limited daylight and the amazing locations Hume Lake offers. Catie came up with the idea of them reading letters they had written to each other before the first look. I had them both stand back to back against one of the sequoia trees and read their letters quietly. The reaction from the letter reading and Aaron’s expression is one I will never forget. It took everything in me not to start crying myself. A very touching moment between them. I think even my hubby (who was my assistant) may have shed a tear. The entire day was filled with so much love from their family and friends. Thank you for hosting me and my hubby and allowing me to capture some amazing pictures. Here are my favorites narrowed down. And trust me it was hard to narrow it down haha….
