Mt Shasta Wedding Photographer
Camera shy doesn’t even begin to cover it. I was standing in Adam’s hotel room, asking him a question about the ceremony. I picked up my camera to take a few pictures of him waiting to meet his bride. Finally, he started his reply. “It’s… Uh… It’s in this… Field? And…” he stuttered. “I can’t even talk to you right now.”
Adam eventually let his guard down, and his wedding with Megan at the McCloud River Mercantile Inn in Northern California was a total blast. It was especially fun watching the shy couple transform into bombshells and party animals.
Their friends and family, though? Well, there’s no doubt that they are extroverts!
I made jokes about invoking the spirit of Kenny Powers to prepare for this wedding, but that’s exactly how I had to act in order to take control of Adam’s wild and crazy groomsmen! I’m not complaining, though. I got to make jokes and say things I would normally be terrified to say at a wedding. :)
That’s not to say the bridal party couldn’t keep up with the pace. In fact, my favorite moment of the day was watching Megan let out a flood of curses as she walked down the grassy aisle, about to become the complete center of attention.
Tonight I’ll ask my wife if she will marry me again, so that you can take the pictures. Love your portfolio!
Wonderful work! I love that you caught the bride kissing her mother before being given away. Lovely!
I adore how this bride styled her wedding!! And you captured it beautifully, the photos are amazing :)
It would be embarrassing to say how many times I have looked at the photos. You are such an incredible artist/photographer and your writing is funny plus entertaining. Your candid style is uniquely Kim Miller but reminds me of that famous photo from WWII when the sailor is kissing the nurse. I cannot brag enough or thank you enough. I love your website and I am becoming a Kim Miller fanatic.
Yellow and grey..and oh the blue shoes! So lovely! Beautiful beautiful photos. :D
Great pictures Kim! Hope all is well in PDX!
Woah, these are just AMAZING! I have no words!
I agree with Anne! These fucking rock!!! Wow, so many great moments caught, unexpected scenes, beautiful compositions and colors. Wow.
These photo’s are amazing! The best wedding pictures I’ve ever seen.
We were not able to be there, but we’re able to be there through these photos.
These are timeless and classic .. lovely images!!
Wow, the storytelling of this wedding is incredible. The portraits and candid moments are killer. The black and whites of the B&G in the car are so good.
i was going to say – so many awesome ceremony moments! but the moments kept going. this is RAD. you are seriously talented and you’ve got this storytelling thing down to a T. too many favorites to list – and i absolutely, really did laugh out loud at the cake-face shot – and then kept laughing most of the rest of the way down. fantastic memories for this couple and their families! you’re awesome!
These are incredible Kim. You totally rocked their personalities & the atmosphere of the day. Plus I’m totally in love with her dress :)
Such great style in this wedding! congrats on capturing the kiss with mom while walking down the aisle. That’s a memory that will last forever because of you.
Such a cool setting and you took full advantage it it. Well done
it looks like you really captured the personalities of this couple…easy going, fun and sweet…let me know if I’m wrong ;)
That scenery is so beautiful it doesn’t even feel real. Also, I LOVE photo number 7 — it’s so perfect and totally sets the pace for the overall style, mood, and feel of the day. So perfect. :)
Oh my, the loveliness!!
I just adore the bride’s style: her hair, dress, shoes, all of it!
And, holy moly, that mountain. What a magical place to get married.
such a sweet wedding, kim! the bride is adorable and i love the documentary approach you took.
Seriously? Unbelievable how good and gorgeous these are. I have nothing but love for the reception photos. Well. Done.
wow, these are incredible. the location is gorgeous. the wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, etc… what brilliant storytelling!
oh boy, these are absolutely divine! you’ve captured such an instictive raw natural feeling of the day. you have so much talent. x
these are seriously rad from top to bottom, good job!
i’m so glad i’m not married yet so i can potentially hire you to shoot my wedding.
i can’t even describe what makes your shots so special; i think because there are no words, and certainly nothing else like it.
Thanks for the kind words, Cara. I’d love to shoot your future wedding! I think we’d have a great time. :)
I don’t even know what to say about those photos, Kim. Those were my reactions: so fucking great! the warmth! the processing! the expressions! timeless! See, I can’t even form sentences anymore. And also, move over and make room for Kim everyone who’s considered a top wedding photographer by PDN or whoever puts out these lists.
Jeez, Anne! Thank you so much for the kind words. I know where to go now when I need a self-esteem boost. :)
