When I started working on the blog post for our best Maine and New England wedding photos of 2020, I was sure it would be much shorter than usual due to the fact that COVID-19 hit and shrunk our season considerably. Apparently, though, one thing Coronavirus was not able to change was my inability to scale down my favorites! This blog post isn’t any shorter at all.
At the end of 2019, we were set to have a wedding almost every weekend of the busy season. However, when early spring hit, many of our clients made the tough decision to jump ship and postpone to 2021 or later. A few couples hung on and worked incredibly hard to keep their weddings safe. They cut guest lists to under 25 people, incorporated hand sanitizer into the decor, quarantined with those who would be attending their wedding, wore masks as much as possible, and made sure everyone was tested. We’ve thanked our clients a million times for keeping things as safe for us as possible, but they deserve another one here… Thank you!
We ended up with only five micro weddings in 2020 after all of the postponements, but we were still able to travel throughout Maine to Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport, Linekin Bay Resort in Boothbay Harbor, and we even got to return to the beautiful Cranberry Isles by boat! We took a small step over the border to the Snowvillage Inn in New Hampshire and photographed a delightful backyard wedding at the Watertown, Massachusetts home of one of our couples.
While I wish that we hadn’t been hit with a pandemic, I don’t think any of our couples would change the way their wedding day turned out. Intimate weddings allow you to relax and soak up the company of your nearest and dearest. They really put the focus back on the most important thing: love. I could photograph micro weddings for the rest of time and be a very happy photographer.
So, here are our best Maine and New England wedding photos from 2020… Enjoy!
