Bowie + Kevin | Champaign County Courthouse nuptials

Summer craziness is here, so I haven’t been on top of my blogging like I should be! Trying to catch up in July!

Bowie + Kevin’s beautiful courthouse wedding took place in late May. Bowie had told me up front that they were both awkward in front of a camera — challenge accepted!! I don’t think they look awkward at all! That is one of my favorite things about being a portrait photographer — loosening people up and making them feel totally comfortable and at ease in front of my lens. I love how I was able to pull out some genuine emotion and laughter out of them too which gives these photos authenticity. I should mention that Bowie’s friends served as my kind of “hype girls” and would pump her up and squeal every time we did a cute pose. It was good for morale all around!! :)

Courthouse ceremonies are short and sweet (we’re talking like 5-10 minutes tops), and I spend roughly an hour with each couple. So while the actual ceremony is short, I take advantage of the rest of the hour to get candids, portraits of the couple, details photos, and group photos with any friends or family that are present.

If you’re considering getting married at the courthouse, let me walk you through the process! Send me an email to start the conversation.
