Backyard weddings are definitely my favourite kind of weddings… Although I might be a little biased, since my own wedding was held in the backyard of the house I grew up in! I’m a huge fan of the causal though, so I think that’s why it feels so right to me. Grass beneath your feet, homey decor to make you feel all warm and fuzzy, and that simple, easy-breezy feel of a yard in the summer – It’s just the best!
This backyard wedding will always hold a special place in my heart because it was the first wedding I ever had the pleasure of photographing! I’m seriously so honoured that someone would trust the capture of one of the biggest days of their lives to a hobby photographer like myself. I was super nervous too… What if I screwed something up? What if I missed the look on the groom’s face when she walked down the aisle?? What if I tripped on the bride’s dress during portraits and smashed my camera with my own face??? OK… you get the picture… I’m a worrier.
But it ended up being the most perfect day! I got all the shots I wanted to get, the weather was ideal, and the wedding details were sweet and perfect. Doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom were gorgeous either 😉 So take a peek at my first EVER wedding – I hope you love the shots as much as I do!
