Covid-19 wreaked havoc on everything this past year and Maty and Bryce had the most popular wedding date of 10/10/2020. We are so happy that these two are the ones who booked us for that date!

When they weren’t able to use their original venue due to Covid restrictions, they then pivoted to Whispering Dreams which had just opened this past summer.

The chance of rain was predicted to be 0%, but while I was literally looking at the rain app, I felt some drops fall on us during the ceremony – most of it held out until the reception started, thankfully! A little rain on your wedding day is good luck!

These two did a prayer together before the ceremony (the groom was blindfolded) and they share a strong Christian faith.

Maty’s dad was so sweet – he planned a special song for their dance together (and had a singer do the song live and changed the lyrics to be more customized for his daughter) and he planned a fireworks surprise – the fireworks went off right as the couple reached the end of the sparkler line! Also, to add to the chaos of a wedding during Covid-19, these two closed on their first home just two days before the wedding! I can’t even imagine that!

Maty and Bryce, we hope you LOVE reliving through these memories while you scroll through your blog!

Note to the couple:
­Maty and Bryce, it was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always. Congratulations!

I’m so excited to share this October 2020 wedding with you all! Amy and Jamie met while working at the hospital. I felt like this wedding was such a great way to kick off our fall 2020 wedding season. It was wonderful to do a first look and all of their portraits at the winery. It was also nice to have an outdoor ceremony, especially with covid being a concern. I know Amy put a lot of work into the details of her wedding, using a wine color with jewel tones throughout her fall décor. I loved the plaid blanket scarves she got for her bridesmaids! I could really feel Amy and Jamie’s joy together throughout the day!

This year, we did minis over a few days and in a few different locations. CandleTree Farm is a wonderful cut your own tree farm in Washington and we were there on a 70 degree sunny day! We also did minis at Renzie Park and Local Roots Landscaping tree lot. Thanks so much to our clients and happy holidays!

Elisha and Phil have been married for 10 years! You might recognize Elisha because she does hair for so many of our clients. Ten years went by so quickly and they now have two great kids. We decided to do their session in the same locations where they had their wedding photos done years ago. Congratulations Elisha and Phil!

This beautiful ceremony felt like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer. It was the end of September and the weather was gorgeous!

Theresa and Matt chose to keep their original date but downsized their event to just their immediate family, in-laws and nieces and nephews, with a dinner afterward with the hopes of having a reception in 2021.

Photos with the kids were really important to them because this is the first time all of their nieces and nephews were together and were able to meet. Since they had to keep the bridal party to just family, some of Theresa’s closest friends stopped by to see her in her dress for the first time. Our bridal party and couple portraits were taken in the Strip District.

Can’t wait to celebrate with you in 2021! It was a pleasure to work with the two of you! We thank you for choosing Kristen Wynn Photography and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness always.

Congratulations!

We first met Aster and her sweet family when she was just six weeks old during our Christmas minis last year. Due to the pandemic, they weren’t able to get any professional photos this year, so it was lovely to meet up with them outdoors for first birthday photos this fall. Aster’s mom always has a great sense of style and this session was no exception! It was an honor to work with them!

Taylor and Michael and COVID. These two were on their second date and their third venue. On a sunny September Saturday, they were married on what sure felt like summer’s last hurrah. The hydrangeas were still in bloom and the sun peeked through the trees as we quickly captured all their portraits. Springwood is a beautiful property and, if you’re considering having your event there, we’d love to work with you as you begin to plan to create a great timeline that allows for you to use as much of the grounds as possible for photos! There’s quite a few tips and tricks we’d be glad to share!

This year is a year of adapting, of changing, of making it work, of getting it done, of putting up tents to have your reception – it’s inTENTS, get it?!. 2020 is the wildest and most chaotic wedding season we hope to ever have, and through it all, we’re all in, all day.
