Lauren and Andre had their wedding license, hall, all wedding plans ready to go. Like all wedding this season, they all got cancelled and postponed.
Lauren and Andre like so many other couples simply postponed their hall and reception. But decided to get married in their backyard, since their wedding license was only good for 90 days.
She plans on having some form of celebration next year, perhaps with a vow renewal or whatever makes sense at that time. Either way, a bigger, much bigger celebration will happen in 2021.
For now, they are legally married. And following the lockdown rules had a great day. Many of the same elements and experiences of a bigger wedding still happen, only smaller. It’s the nature of a pop up wedding. Elegant, well done, just small. And legal of course.
Here’s a few samples….[Read more…] about Lauren & Andre…a backyard wedding during lockdown…
This is an interesting article on smaller weddings and solutions during this lock down. Many couples have had to deal with changing their wedding dates, often for a full year.

What a nightmare this would be. I suppose some problems that show up at a wedding event could be worse, much worse.

Rain can be a real damper. Worse yet, when you have a large crowd of close friends and family, all outdoors, nothing but umbrellas, hopefully, and if it starts raining, that dampening effect made way worse by the mere fact that so many are in attendance. Ugh….what a mess!

As mentioned, even on a pop up wedding, there are many opportunities for relaxed, candid and photojournalistic photos.
This style of photography is very popular and the images are many of the favorites with brides and grooms…some more samples….
No matter the size of the event, I always like to capture the heart and soul. There’s a story to tell, and one of the best ways to do this is by using a photo journalistic style and black and white photography.
I have learned over the years and by applying myself with decades of of wedding photography experience to “anticipate” and be ready when the shot will reveal itself.
Couples love this style of photography of course. And when blended with the more artistic, classic photography, it adds so much more to the overall collections of memories.[Read more…] about Candid black and white photography at the pop up wedding…
