Favorite Wedding Moments of 2020

“God creates the beauty. My camera and I are witness.” (Mark Denman)

That is how I feel when I am doing wedding photography. I have yet to get over the immense joy and privilege it is to be so intimately involved in individuals’ wedding celebrations, just seeing how beautifully created they are and the joy that exudes from their togetherness. SO MANY times throughout wedding days, I find myself smiling from ear to ear, watching the perfect light illuminate such stunning people. As I rapid-fire shoot images, I am amazed at what I get to capture. What a privilege to do what I do!

While covid brought many changes and postponed dates to the wedding world last year, I was still able to have the privilege of working with Dani White Photography throughout 2020, and second shooting a handful of weddings for her! Spending those days alongside her was such a joy and help to me as a person and a photographer. I grew in confidence and excitement to be in the industry, and renewed thankfulness of what it means to use our gifts to serve clients with excellence!

Below are a few of my favorite photos I captured on wedding days throughout 2020. I hope the beauty within them makes you smile as it has me!

Eric & Sharon: Gloucester Wedding

Anyone else miss the pre-covid wedding days? Celebrating with friends and family, sans face coverings and social distancing? While I know our current circumstances and the various regulations upon us are limits we all just have to accept as reality for right now, I still peruse weddings I shot in 2019 with such awe and glee, seeing mask-less faces and guests cozied up next to one another! I pray we get to be there again soon. Until then, enjoy some highlights from a wedding I shot back in May of 2019 for a dear couple from my church, Hampton Roads Fellowship! Watching their little blended family (Sharon & MJ, Eric & Cameron) become one surrounded by our HRF family was such a relaxed, joyful celebration!

(Note: I’m still shooting weddings in this season, maneuvering covid restrictions and seeking to bless couples as they deal with these crazy times! Message debbiedeanphotography@gmail.com to get wedding packages and booking details!)

Jenny’s Bridals – Williamsburg, VA

It’s been KILLING me keeping these secret for the past two weeks! When Jenny and I drove to Williamsburg and did her bridal portrait shoot on a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon at the end of August, I knew it was going to take everything in me to not share her photos until after her wedding on September 8th. SHE WAS STUNNING, and so natural and happy, and I loved how the pictures turned out! Now that she and herĀ hubby Eric are wed and off honeymooning in the Bahamas, I can finally reveal this gorgeous girl’s bridal photos. Be looking soon for their wedding pictures in the upcoming week or two! For now, enjoy some of my favorites of beautiful Jenny…..
