Just Married at Chicago Marriage Court

September 10, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This is the first couple I photographed. I wanted to photograph couples in a way that would reveal a part of their story with as little intervention by me as possible. Being in front of the couples with a camera can put me at a deficit because people have a natural inclination to present themselves. I was looking for a more natural, less intentional reaction. I developed a series of questions that I asked the couples while suggesting they place their attention on each other. I refined my approach over the course of the project. 

I've introduced the project in Black & White to focus on the similarities shared among all the participants and to focus on their expressions and the feelings they share. The following posts will be in color and I made that choice to convey more information and see the differences among them.  IMG_0094IMG_0094 IMG_9687-EditIMG_9687-Edit IMG_9936-EditIMG_9936-Edit IMG_0125-EditIMG_0125-Edit IMG_1712-EditIMG_1712-Edit IMG_9961IMG_9961 IMG_2134IMG_2134 IMG_1871IMG_1871 _MG_9205_MG_9205 _MG_0697-Edit_MG_0697-Edit _MG_0579_MG_0579 _MG_0125_MG_0125 _MG_0627_MG_0627 _MG_0140-Edit_MG_0140-Edit
