2020 was a year to remember. It started out pretty normal, January the wedding inquiries pour in, you fill up your calendar for the year and get really excited for all the amazing weddings that year.
Then MARCH hit... Everything stopped, all of my sessions either canceled or postponed. I honestly thought I wasn't going to shoot a single wedding in 2020. For a business owner that's really scary, as an artist I was really sad I wouldn't be able to capture amazing moments. But Love wasn't cancelled. As the restrictions relaxed couples began to un-postpone their weddings or have smaller ceremonies. Weddings in 2020 were going to change for everyone, and instead of having massive halls filled with people, small intimate weddings in backyards began to emerge. And you know what, I might have fallen in love with these smaller weddings. 2020 couples had to be so flexible. Couples remembered the most important thing wasn't if they partied hard into the night, it was simply marring their partner and wanting to become their husband or wife.
Kirstyn and Jeremy were one of those amazing couples! They choose to still say I do with 30 of their close friends and family members. They set up a beautiful arch in the backyard and those amazing LOVE letters that are perfect for your first dance. Their ceremony was so sweet and heartfelt. We followed with family photos and a few photos with a mask that Kirstyn's mom had made just for the wedding. The photos of them wearing their masks will make for a really cool story to tell their kids someday.
They jumped into Jeremy's restored green challenger and off we went for photos to popular bluffs. The bridal party was totally game to let loose and have a bit of fun. The whole gang was a blast to capture. Afterwards I took just the to of them and let them get lost in each's world. Sharing their favorite moments from the day together, exchanging kisses and a lot of laughs. Isn't Kirstyn's dress just stunning, the way it moved in photos was breath taking. I LOVED shooting with Jeremy's car, I'm a huge sucker for old cars. The green matched their wedding colors perfectly. And of course you have to finish off your shoot with your couple driving away, kicking up dust and hands in the air.
I can not wait to work with them again this summer.
