The wedding was set for early April. Sadly, we all know what happened next. Mid-March came and covid brought the country to a halt. In the beginning, no one had any idea of how long it would last, we were really hopeful that the wedding could still go on. About a week after the initial news of lockdowns, the call was made to postpone. I was so heartbroken for them. I was for all the couples that had to reschedule but this one really hit home. If you didn’t know Amanda is my sister-in-law so this wedding held a particularly special place in my heart. While covid wasn’t around when I got married, I did have to reschedule my own wedding due to different circumstances. I knew how devasting this can be.
Throughout April, shutdowns kept extending. With no end in sight, Amanda & Steve decided that they did not want to put off being husband and wife any longer and had an intimate ceremony in Central Park with just them, the minister, and a local photographer. When I heard of their plans I couldn’t have been more thrilled for them. Even though we wouldn’t be there to see them getting married I couldn’t have been prouder of them. They were not going to let anything stand in the way of their love for each other.
Fast forward to October where they were able to travel back to Ohio and I got a chance to photograph them around Columbus, Ohio. We spent the morning walking around German Village. It was chilly but bearable. It was the perfect morning.
I can’t wait for you to see some of my favorites from their session. They are such a beautiful couple and I think these images really capture just how in love they are!
