One local wedding photographer is helping some couples create memories.



According to data from the Harris County Clerk's Office over the past six years, the highest number of marriage license applications processed was in 2016.

In 2020, Harris County saw fewer than half as many couples applying for marriage licenses as the year before.



By the way, that was the year after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage.

Every year after, there has been a drop in applications. It appears the pandemic had a big impact on marriage license applications between years 2019 and 2020, with a 110% decrease.
