Welcome to Katie and Yuri's wedding - round one. With the world turned upside down, it's hard to put on a wedding, but these two did it. They decided to go ahead with a private ceremony with their officiant, a zoom coordinator, and me to document. I felt so lucky because photographing their love was very uplifting in these times. We gathered at the Yiddish Book Center at Hampshire College on a warm May 30th, and they made some of my photographer dreams come true with this pine grove and their sweet love for each other.
Katie and Yuri, I wish you all the best, and I'll be hoping and praying for a fun big party in round two. I can't wait to see you both again and meet your families. I'm sure it was so hard for them to not be there, but I hope these photos help ease the distance a little bit.
