There is something very special about having your wedding celebration in the backyard of a family member or close friend. We have photographed many backyard weddings that range from 2 to 200 guests.

Also, backyard weddings are perfect for getting creative in your decor, from twinkling lights that line the trees to tables lined with your grandmother’s linens. We even photographed one that was a potluck and it was absolutely delicious!Bringing your friends and family together for this kind of gathering is truly something special. We invite you to browse through our collection of backyard weddings and grab some ideas for your own day!
