Chicago Courthouse Wedding: Samantha & John


I love working as a Chicago courthouse wedding photographer because it is such a different challenge from your standard wedding day.   If you choose to get married at the Chicago City Hall, it’s a great way to avoid a lavish wedding with 300 guests.  This windowless basement also includes some amazing people watching, and a long line with lots of smiles.  Some of the most honest and intimate moments I’ve photographed have been at courthouse weddings, and I feel so lucky to be a courthouse wedding photographer and often, one of just a few close friends and relatives in the room!

Samantha and John got ready at the JW Marriott Chicago and walked to the courthouse together.  It was such a beautiful morning, it’s even better when you get to document a lovely bride and groom!  After a quick ceremony with a kind and funny judge, we we went to the rooftop of the Prudential Building for portraits.  Thank you so much, Samantha and John… enjoy your photography!
