2020. What a whirlwind. As I was gathering these images for this “Best of 2020” post I was a giant bucket of tears. Me crying about wedding images probably won’t come as a huge shock to anyone. 😉 But these tears were tears of overwhelming gratitude. Gratitude that even though wedding season wasn’t anything like what we had anticipated, it was still a beautifully magical year. We still shot weddings. Love was still celebrated. We still got to be a part of family legacies. We still captured moments that people’s grandkids will look at 60 years from now.
And here I sit. Blown away with gratitude once again that this is what I get to call my “job”. Thankful that, in the midst of one of the hardest years that most of us have ever faced, we still got to feel unbelievable amounts of love.
Weddings looked so incredibly different this year. Some weddings ended up being 10 people in the middle of the woods, exchanging vows. Others ended up being held on zoom. Some downsized but were still able to have a whole big party! No matter what it looked like, it was still beautiful. And I still cried behind my camera. 😉
Being a small business owner was just downright tough this year. As postponement after postponement rolled in I started to cringe a little bit every time my phone would ding with a new email. We’re so thankful for the grace and patience our clients had with us throughout this year, and for the constant support love and support we received from couples who now feel more like family.
To our 2020 couples: Thank you. You adapted and pivoted and rearranged plans more times than I can count. We loved being a part of your day!
To our 2020 couples that turned into 2021 couples: We know you made some of the toughest decisions ever when you postponed. We love you and we can’t wait to celebrate with you this year. I know you didn’t plan on waiting this long, but your day will be incredible when it finally get’s here!
I had roughly 300 images in my favorites folder but there’s no way I can include them all in this post! So, while these are not ALL of my favorites, these are my TOP favorites.
I’m holding onto BIG hope for 2021, and all the joy and love that it’s sure to bring us!!
Enjoy a little peek at our favorite shots from 2020, and make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom for behind the scenes shots from this year!
That’s a wrap on our Best of 2020 images! There’s hundreds more that I could share but I had to draw the line somewhere!
But we’re not done yet!! Keep scrolling to see some behind the scenes shots from our 2020 wedding season! Jesse is so much better at remembering to take BTS shots, so most of them are of me. But we all know he’s the glue that holds everything together!
Every Lytle Couple knows that no wedding is complete without at Lytle Selfie!! I started this tradition in 2018 and we get one with every single couple at the end of their wedding day! Love our Lytle Couples so so much!
