As the spring of 2020 approached is was getting clearer every day that things were going to be rough for a while. Why did I get into the event industry!? While obviously struggling with the concept of how life was going to pan out for the foreseeable future I really felt for my couples who were going through their own dilemmas. Kevin & Jill were going to get married at the Atkinson Country Club. They did not get married at the Atkinson Country Club...
I met the couple for the first time at their engagement session down in Beverly, MA at Lynch Park. It was my first time there so I arrived a little early to scout. What a cool spot, right on the shore with a lot of options for great photos. They were an awesome couple to work with and and little did we know at the time how different their wedding was going to be.
Thanks to COVID they were forced to downsize their wedding to only include close family and friends and have it at their new property in Ipswich, MA. It was really the perfect backyard for a celebration. I started with the girls at a house nearby then we travelled over to the ceremony/reception site. I had my trusty second shooter Marc with me who had been covering the guys.
We went right into the ceremony then had planned some intimate formal photos with just the two of them at the coast which was close by. The light couldn't have been better and we got some super shots by the water.
Afterwards the party started. Despite the changes and crazy situation we all found ourselves in they managed to make it work. There was no complaining or feeling sorry for themselves. We all got on with it and made it the best wedding day it could be. I hope you enjoy some photos from their day!
