Ahhh you guys. I feel like me being able to shoot this micro-wedding this past May was an act of fate. Through a series of events out of everyone’s control I was not able to shoot Brittany and Emmit’s wedding originally. Enter: coronavirus. I immediately clicked with Brittany from the second that I met her, and when I realized that I actually would be able to shoot her wedding I was thrilled. Not to mention that along the way, I also discovered she is friends with some of my most favorite people. The world works in some very funny ways, and I have always been completely in awe of the people I am able to meet through photography. Not only do I love getting to spend their wedding days with them, but I have also met so many lifelong friends and I am forever going to be thankful for that.
Brittany and Emmit got a perfect May day for this ceremony. We went over to Jake’s Branch Park for their first look, and the light was magical. This was followed up by a ceremony at their home (at that time of this wedding we were capped at just 10 guests). One of the sweetest moments was Brittany’s grandmother as flower girl. She relished in the role, and that’s very obvious from the photos. We did cake and toasts – and I loved that even though this whole pandemic has stolen a lot of joy – that this day was still so totally magical.
We ended the evening with a fire and some s’mores and fireside chat. Not gonna lie to anybody I ate quite a lot of s’mores because I haven’t had them in years – so thank you for indulging me Brittany and Emmit.
The long and the short of it is that I absolutely love these two, their families, and their friends, and being there with them for this was such an honor. Especially during what was such a dark time, this gave me so much light.
