“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” 2020 was nothing like I thought it would be, and it was the most unexpected and challenging year I’ve faced as a small business owner.  But, I’m extremely grateful for every couple I’ve met and worked with.  I’m most grateful for the friendships and connections I’ve made along the way, which has always been my favorite part of this.

2020 was crazy.  I spent almost all of it holed up inside my house.  So, I honestly don’t have a ton of behind-the-scenes footage.

But, when I wasn’t home, I was usually at a session or wedding!  Looking back over the year, there was a lot of uncertainty of what the next few weeks, especially months, would hold.  That was difficult for my Type A/Enneagram 3 personality.  🙂  I have to laugh at an Instagram post where I mentioned “staying in for the next couple of weeks” at the very beginning of the pandemic.  We were so naive in Phase 1 of COVID!

But, I made it through!  My couples made it through, and I don’t think I can even begin to express how amazing it was to watch brides gracefully navigate wedding days and wedding plans that were nothing like their original visions.  I think that was the best part of my year.  Seeing my brides just so happy to be able to even get married.  I’ve never been able to form such close bonds with my brides as I try to help them navigate such challenging situations.  It was the silver lining to a horrible situation.

And, for the many couples who were supposed to get married this year, and didn’t, my heart is so sad for them.  But, my hope is that when the time comes, I will be more skilled as a photographer, and their day will be that much more perfect.

Here are some stats from this year, and some insight into what it was like for me to as a wedding photographer during COVID.

In 2020:

I photographed 15 weddings

Moved 7 weddings to next year due to COVID

Delivered more than 16,000 images

Booked 18 weddings for the coming years (Yes, people are thinking about 2022!  Bring it on!)

Got COVID 0 times (As far as I know)

Published in The Well Journal and in Kentucky Bride!

Here are some photos of me working behind the scenes in 2020!  I added some commentary to give you an insight into what my year looked like!

 

I just want to say THANK YOU to anyone reading this, to my clients, friends, and family.  I don’t know what 2021 will hold, but we made it through 2020!
