When you get home from an amazing trip, you just have to tell people all about it in great detail! I finally went to NYC ya’ll! I wish I’d taken more street photography while I was there. I was too busy saving my energy for this epic wedding and a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.
The locations was the popular local bookstore that doubled as a coffee shop. Smart, right? This is the place where one can read an entire book without paying much mind to buying it. No guilt, either. They encourage it. Which I really admired reading upon doing my research on this venue. As a bookworm in my youth, I couldn’t just buy all the books I wanted. We had book fairs back in the 00’s. We’d get $20 to spend on some chapter books if you had the means. Most places outside of the public libraries had a rule about reading too long in the store and book fairs were timed shopping trips. I am grateful Housing Works vibes differently.
When Alix (they/them) and Angie (she/her) first reached out to me they were planning an intimate backyard wedding in Alix’s parents backyard in Chicago. I was excited to work with them and have a chill day with their families but COVID put our plans on hold. While they waited to host a larger event for their loved ones they decided to elope at the courthouse to speed things up a bit.
The moment in front of all their closest friends and family was the main focus for the day. They cared about portraits, but they mainly wanted to have a lot of options for their ceremony and reception.
