Best Charleston Wedding Photos 2020 | Leigh Hayward Photography

I’ll admit this post is a little late, but  it is hard to motivate in January right? So here goes, peace out 2020!  However, I have to admit it 2020 wasn’t all bad. Surprisingly, 2020 was a good year for me and my business. Even though they might have looked different than originally planned, the majority of my couples still had their Charleston Weddings. So take that Covid, love is more viral than you!!  In fact, I totally dug the smaller more intimate weddings. Couples were surrounded with just their core group of family and close friends. Weddings seemed even more emotional and important this year!

I’m a positive person, so I want to focus on the good and honor these best of 2020 Charleston Weddings. I want to extend a big thank you to all of my couples. I’m so incredibly grateful for each and everyone of you! I sincerely appreciate you choosing me to document this amazing time in your love story. And if you had to postpone your wedding in Charleston from 2020 till 2021, I want to say thank you for sticking by my side!  I can’t wait to celebrate and document your love soon!
