"Micro Weddings" downsizing your weddings in 2020 due to the Coronavirus
I wanted to continue the wedding theme of "good things come in small packages", micro weddings downsizing in 2020. Many couples have had to or are in the process of downsizing their wedding reception or changing the wedding plans to honor their wedding date to follow state guidelines to remain covid compliant by having a smaller sized intimate wedding/elopement ceremony to be attended by immediate family.
Couples going through this uncertain time aren't sure what their wedding would look like in this new form or how to go about planning it. I thought I would share some smaller sized intimate weddings to give couples some ideas. Don't get me wrong, I really love photographing large gala weddings and shoot many of them in a year. They have their place, and their merits, however intimate weddings can be overlooked and have their merits as well. The intimacy that smaller size weddings allow is really very special. The only people in attendance are usually the immediate family members. The small group size allows for more intimacy and people to share and be themselves. The pace is often slower at these types of weddings, without all the distractions that can accompany larger weddings. Their is less anxiety about everything being perfect with fewer people, places and things to throw into the mix. Instead, everyone can focus more on just "being" and "sharing" and let their guards down to be more of themselves. This creates a more relaxed and laid back feel to your wedding which honestly can be a really nice thing.
Nyab and Conor's wedding elopement/ceremony took place at their private residence. Their parents and siblings were in attendance. The total guest count was 6 with the bride and groom 8 and with the addition of me as the photographer and their officiant we were 10 in total. 2.5 hours of coverage consisted of getting ready photos, photos of the bride and groom and inside family photos, ceremony photos and detail shots followed by a cake and champagne celebration followed by outdoor portraits of the family and bride and groom. I provided over 500 color photos and another 500 in black and white. All curated and beautifully edited to capture the candid moments of laughs, tears and joy celebrating their love for each other on their wedding day in the company of their parents and siblings.
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and you want a photographer who has the skills and experience to capture every precious moment. I have been formally trained in photography through the New York Institute of Photography and The Wedding School. I started my career as a landscape and commercial photographer where precision, detail and accuracy were required in every job. I bring these skills to every wedding assuring you will have a beautiful collection of photographs of your wedding day from beginning to end. Vision, attention, creativity, communication and caring go into every aspect of your wedding. I was awarded Best of the Knot 2018 and 2019 for my hard work, many 5 star reviews and happy clients.
