Many couples have had to shift their wedding plans this year, and my heart continually is for those who are navigating these circumstances. Every couple is different, and I cheer them all on as they decide what is best for them and their loved ones.
Elizabeth and Caleb had to pivot from their original wedding plans and opted for a small wedding in Ohio, where they live, on the date they originally planned to get married. It was so beautiful, as they chose a backdrop of pine trees on a sprawling historic Ohio farm owned by Elizabeth’s best friend’s grandparents. The day was perfect, with the sun shining down and the woods all abloom.
Their first look was set against the gorgeous brick farmhouse, and after an intimate wedding ceremony with their immediate family and friends, we explored the surrounding woods for beautiful spots for their wedding portraits.
I’ll say it again and again: your story matters. And no matter *how* your wedding day turns out, it’s always been about you and your someone promising your love and lives to each other.
At the end of my coverage, Elizabeth and I cried together while she shared with me how much the photos will mean since it will literally allow those who couldn’t be there to witness their wedding still. I drove home to Indiana crying tears of joy and gratitude as, once again, my work felt so much more than a job. It’s an honor time and again to photograph some of the most amazing people as they celebrate their wedding. Wedding photos should tell your story well. Wedding photos should be timeless as they’ll continue to tell your story to generations after you.
I can’t wait for their reception coming up soon, where they’ll be able to party with friends and continue the celebration.
