2020, man. All the change this year has brought has been a doozy. And while we’re definitely counting our blessings to be safe and healthy, all the pandemic precautions have certainly changed the lay of the land for Arkansas wedding photographers, and that’s been quite an adjustment! Big 500-guest weddings have transformed into 15-guest weddings, and already-small weddings have turned micro. But while I know that sometimes that is a source of disappointment for my sweet brides and grooms, my typical silver-lining personality has found a lot of beauty in it too. I’ve quite enjoyed the intimacy of a simple 10-person wedding. It’s all close and tightly knit and just…pure.
And Laura and Britten’s sweet elopement with JLK Weddings was the absolute epitome of all that is good about intimate weddings. These two are a couple of the best people you’ll ever meet and their love for each other just absolutely draws everyone around them in. Their parents couldn’t come to the wedding because of the pandemic, but an emotional video chat with Laura’s mom while she was getting ready and her brother stepping in to help her get her dress on told me all I needed to know – these two are cherished by their family and friends, and Covid-19 can’t stop that.
I pulled some of my very favorite images from their day to share with you guys here, so please scroll on and enjoy!
(Oh! And I feel like I should mention that Britten’s wedding ring is made of dinosaur bone and meteorite. Isn’t that CRAY!?)
