I love backyard weddings. My sister and brother-in-law were married at our childhood home, and there’s something really amazing about inviting close friends and family to celebrate a wedding at such a sentimental place.
But here’s the thing. Curtis’ family doesn’t just have just any backyard. They have multiple ponds on a gorgeous private property across from the family farm (and it just so happened that I had photographed his dad for a magazine feature about the farm earlier this year). They have a waterfall, a fire pit and lights everywhere. It was stunning.
And thanks to Diana for second shooting in a pinch when our original second photographer had a family emergency. Lansing has such a supportive photography community, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. This wedding is a great example of how two photographers can capture different perspectives throughout the day. Check out the full gallery to see more.
