Marc Perlish Photography | Family series, "Just Married" at Chicago Marriage Court

Family series, "Just Married" at Chicago Marriage Court

I took the opportunity to photograph couples with other family members when time allowed. I waited a short time to see how they arranged themselves and my only direction was usually for all of them to move in closer. I wanted to retain what they did naturally without much intervention. The families were always photographed at the very end of our time. There were many people milling about behind me much of the time which resulted in the couples and family members being distracted by those that were fooling around, making them laugh and shouting out all sorts of things. It was all part of the experience and I didn't ask them to look into the camera or to focus on me. They always eventually came back to paying attention to each other or looking at me.

Each photograph has more love in it than the previous one! I love that all these continuing families decided to get married! Yea for love! And Marc your "non-interference" let that love shine.
