A Small Backyard Wedding in Atlanta, GA


at the groom's house

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 a 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 Ceremony


Remember everything you see in this gallery Jacob made by himself.  They were going to get married at a local venue, but because of the covid19 pandemic, they decided to get married in the backyard.  In which Jacob only had 2 weeks to set up and make everything.

Most of the decors he made were from the 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 at 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 pandemic’s early days.

Portraits at the Backyard Wedding


As we watched and captured photos from the wedding ceremony, I started to watch the clouds roll 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 blow their minds away, and it did!

I mostly did the wide shots, and Krista did all the closeup shots.  So they got a variety of both types 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


Because it was such a small wedding, you can really say an elopement type of wedding.  Things moved rather quickly.  The reception was right in 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 don’t’ want any expectations later on.
