Backyard Wedding at the Groom's House in Atlanta GA
When the time comes for love, nothing can really stop it from happening. Despite this backyard wedding was taken during the covid19 pandemic, love did not stop because of the virus. Matter of fact, it found a way around, and this was the outcome of it.
I was assigned to be 2nd shooter, so I stuck with Jacob all day. However, when I got here Jacob was still getting the backyard ceremony, and reception ready. So instead of just watching, I started to capture the day of him getting it ready.
Backyard Wedding Atlanta Wedding Ceremony
Remember everything you see in this gallery Jacob made by himself. They were gonna get married at a local venue, but because of the covid19 pandemic, they decide to get married in the backyard. In which Jacob only had 2 weeks to setup and make everything.
Most of the decors he made was from tree’s around his house, which I thought was really amazing. It’s wonderful to see how much love will push a man.
Only a few people arrived to the wedding ceremony was it was nice and small. We were able to keep social distancing in place at all times which was very convenient especially during the early days of the pandemic.
Backyard Wedding Atlanta Outdoor Portraits
As we were watching and capturing photos from the wedding ceremony, I started to watch the clouds role in. And immateriality new that portrait sessions would be epic! I had already imaged a few wide shots of the bride and groom for something that will just blow their minds away, and it did!
I mostly did the wide shots, and Krista did all the close up shots. So they got a variety of both type of looks. We do make a perfect time, and I can not work without her because she does all the posing, and I do all the creative stuff. A perfect team!
Wedding Reception, Cake Cutting, and First Dance
Because it was such a small wedding, you can really say and elopement type of wedding. Things moved rather quickly. The reception was right in the front of the groom’s house, with the cake close by and the dance floor was at the groom’s tool shed.
The tool shed had me kept thinking of something creative to do, and even attempt to take a shot of the groom in the tools shed, but it just didn’t work out correctly. And I told this to Jacob, as I just dont’ want any expectations later on.
Take a look at the gallery below and make sure you watch the cool slideshow video i made above as well. If you need a photographer for a backyard wedding, or elopement wedding get in touch!
