Just Married at Chicago Marriage Court

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.
