What a year! 2020 started out with so much promise, with a beautiful January wedding in Charleston kicking off our season. We traveled to Barbados with friends in February, soaked up the sun and surf, and shot just two more weddings before I headed to teach at the Hybrid Co in San Diego in early March. A creative photographers retreat in Palm Springs was tacked on to the same trip and both weeks were full of so much joy, shooting and friendship. And then…the pandemic struck. Suddenly, our Paris workshop was canceled with two weeks’ notice, our Italy workshop also had to be canceled, countless European weddings were postponed, and and dozens and dozens of domestic weddings were rescheduled as we entered the first Stay at Home order. In spite of the craziness of what 2020 has brought the wedding industry, I’m SO, so proud of what my team and I were able to accomplish in 2020. With more free time and just a few weddings, I was able to open up a few 1:1 & 2:1 Mentorships & Private Workshops, as well as shoot several luxury, full scale editorial shoots that were truly a dream. Somehow our team photographed 24 weddings, and I couldn’t be more grateful for our Lauren Fair Photography Associate team who stepped graciously in to cover dates, accommodate sometimes 2-4 date changes, and still photograph our clients’ wedding days beautifully! We learned to shoot with masks…with social distancing…and all the other things that are now part of our lives for another few months. This compilation of Best of 2020 includes my own weddings and our Lauren Fair Photography associate photographers’ work!
This year brought some beautiful new relationships into my life, that I will be forever grateful for!
