micro is magical: end of year wrap-up

Micro-weddings are magical and here is the proof!
2020 threw everyone a curveball, but especially the wedding and event industry. Our very industry is based on large numbers of people gathering, so at its core, it was challenged. 

But love, and better yet, couples who share that love, could not be halted.  Every year, I do an end of the year wrap up blog. Most times, it is my favorite images of the year. But I wanted to do something different. As we move into 2021, I know that many couples are feeling the COVID pressure creeping into their dates. PLEASE. Let this blog post be your proof that if you must downsize, it can still be everything you've dreamed of, and even somethings that you didn't (in the best way possible!)

I'm showcasing my 15 micro-weddings that I photographed in 2020 below. All of these couples pictured do not regret, one bit, keeping their plans and getting married the "2020" way. Let these photos be the proof that micro or intimate does not have to equate to simple or something that feels sacrificed!

I've included information of each wedding to give you an idea of what spaces these couple's utilized and also, how many guests they had. After my professional experiences this year, I feel fully able to help any couple navigate fears, concerns or questions regarding planning a wedding in these times. Please reach out to me if you need anything! 

Enjoy :) And here's to 2021; may it be much better for us all!
