Justine + Grant | Urbana courthouse elopement

It was just the two of them. Sweet and simple — just the way they wanted it. They chose to not invite any family or friends (though they knew about it!), and are instead sharing my photos with them after the fact. Justine + Grant had the only wedding at the courthouse on Monday, so we had the 3rd floor hallway pretty much to ourselves. We did a few portraits while we waiting for the bailiff to call us in, and then asked them to pretend I wasn’t there while I snapped some candids. We were then called in to the courtroom, and Judge Heidi Ladd performed the quick ceremony. There were still a few minutes left in our session time, so they hopped on the elevator for one of my signature elevator shots, one quick photo with the Champaign County seal, and then on to the beautiful outside of the courthouse where we finished up with some more portraits and action shots. I always love a good dancing twirl photo! <3
