Erin & Patrick | Arlington courthouse wedding

Erin and Patrick are going to rock out the big dress, big ballroom, party-for-everyone-we-know a little later on this year. But sometimes life (or bureaucracies) dictate that you have to go to the courthouse a little early. And if you’re going to do that, you might as well bring along your photographer and rock out a courthouse/engagement session duo of awesomeness. So they did.

In Arlington, you don’t get married in an actual courthouse, but in a lawyer’s office across the way. Apparently two dudes in the basement duke it out for couples (I’d photographed weddings at the other guy’s office – this was my first time on this side).

Some lawyer’s offices are cooler than others.

After their short ceremony, I took the newlyweds across the way to Bayou, where they were promptly given free beignets.

It was pretty cold, and raining, so we went underground.

This is one of my favorite ways to do portraits – just wandering around an area, looking for cool spots. We finished up our photo time in the entrance to a parking garage.

Congratulations Erin and Patrick! I’ll see you guys again soon for the big shindig!

Cool shots underground! And the lighting on their faces in the last portraits is outstanding. Well done.
