Old Sugar Mill Wedding Photography| Courtney and Owen

Courtney and Owen Like to live dangerously. I got a call from them to photograph their wedding only a month away from the ceremony date! The Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg, CA had a last minute cancellation, so they moved their wedding up by a full year! Brave, brave souls (=   I’m so glad I was available because their wedding was an absolute pleasure to attend.  Courtney and Owen are just the type of couple that after knowing them for 10 minutes, you would happily entrust them with your children or let them drive your mint ’57 Chevy to Kansas.  Their love for eachother is evident, honest, and geniune, and I think the photos from their wedding are an artistic interpretation of not only them, but how they made me feel while photographing them.  Here are some of my favorite photos around the Old Sugar Mill and the rustic brick and broken pane buildings…for some reason, I preferred more black and white than normal for this blog post, and some darker photos than usual.  Either way,  I really enjoyed taking these.

There are wine barrels everywhere at the Old Sugar Mill wedding venue,  and they made a nice accent for this dress photo

The shoe shot….my way.  Old Sugar Mill Wedding photos must have bricks in there somewhere!  Thanks for your help Courtney! <3<3

Courtney and Owen were married in the Barrel Room… a nice, dramatic spot for  ceremony at The Old Sugar Mill wedding venue.
