This sweet portrait session at Arlington Hall at Turtle Creek Park was the definition of most of my work in 2020. While the pandemic effected many things, most directly as a wedding photographer, it effected weddings. Consequently, I went through so many reschedules, a few cancellations, and a few downsized celebrations this last year. Though it wasn’t plan A for any of my couples, they made the most of the situation! And to put it plainly – we made it work.
Case in point, Whitney and Jason. Whitney reached out to me wanting photos of her and Jason in their wedding attire that they never had a chance to wear. You see, their grand wedding was supposed to take place in April of 2020. While most of the world was still in quarantine, they went to the courthouse instead. She told me how much she was looking forward to their wedding portraits and like most brides, she was especially excited to wear her dress.
We set out to meet on a November Saturday for their portraits at Arlington Hall. They even brought their sweet rescue golden retriever for a few shots! We strolled through the grounds, showcasing some of my favorite spots to photograph and highlighted their energy and natural chemistry together. And of course, Whitney’s gorgeous backless halter wedding gown complete with Manolo Blahniks. It was the perfect session to cap off their eventful year together.
I wanted to show off this session because it sort of represented how I approached much of 2020 – with flexibility and openness to the new opportunities presented. Without that, I may not have had the chance to work with such great people like Whitney and Jason and we may not have been able to take these beautiful photos together.
