Abbey and Shane got married! In the middle of the woods in the middle of a pandemic. I really have no idea how we're all coping with this craziness, but I do know photographing their wedding made me feel like myself again. Staying at least 6 feet away, not touching anything anyone else touched, and setting up a ring shot with gloves on are all things I never thought I would be doing as a wedding photographer... BUT it was perfect.
Abbey's words: "Shane and I have been patiently waiting to plan our wedding until we figured things out with my back. Surgery was finally scheduled April 2 but with covid19, it has been postponed until further notice. We decided we just didn’t want to wait any longer to be man and wife! We eloped! We felt during these uncertain times being legally married now is what is best for us. We plan to be married in the Church and celebrate with family and friends next summer! Feeling beyond blessed and completely enjoying being newlyweds! #ForAsLongAsILivingston"
Personally, this was one of my favorite weddings I have ever shot. Two absolutely incredible people, in the woods, getting married because they just can't wait to be husband and wife is what it's all about. I will never forget all the fun we had a little over a week ago on their big day, the way I was trying not to touch my face to wipe my tears during their sweet ceremony, and when Abbey said she will never forget the way the sun looked on Shane's face as they said "I Do" to each other.
Here are a few of my favorites...
