Welcome to the blog of Steve Bowman Photography. Articles of dubious interest. Fingers crossed I remember to update.
Kim & Charlie. Engaged.
Monday, November 17, 2014 3:26PM

 Off to Richfield for the second session of the afternoon for Chicagoans Kim & Charlie... though don't hold it against them, neither are from there, just fighting the good fight from within... plenty of manhandling and hugging going on for this one to prevent the hypothermia setting in during a hike through the foreboding snow dusted woods and the grass fields which the wind unhappily joined us for.. nevertheless they were uncomplaining as I trawled them through the undergrowth and non-existent snowmobile tracks I promised we'd stay on. worth it. enjoy these guys now however, as you won't be seeing them for a couple of years... they take their planning seriously... Kim & Charlie.

Kristin & Jim. Engaged.
Monday, November 17, 2014 3:23PM

 What a beautiful late autumn day it turned out not to be... though the light snow turned out to be a fantastic aesthetic substitute for the lovely Kristin & Jim and their modelling debut in Delafield.. if you can get past the gorgeous Kristin, you'll probably notice that smouldering GQ look JIm's got going on though... no experience folks (aside from some vicarious fraternal transfer) they're just that good (though I"m sure the cat litter cue helped).. Kristin & Jim.

Janelle & Chris. Engaged.
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 4:00PM

 On their first weekend off in recent memory Janelle & Chris chose to spend the afternoon launching their modelling careers, and if teaching becomes too pedestrian for them, I'd say they have more than a shot... their first date (orchestrated somewhat sneakily by a mutual friend of ours) happened at one of the first weddings I shot which was a cute coincidence to be on the hook for this wedding... starting off in the Third Ward with mercifully mild weather, it was then on to the lake front to make out in front of a bunch of kids in the MAM doing arts & crafts.. very appropriate for a couple of educators... see kids, even when covered in glue, construction paper and glitter you can still find love in front of your innocent eyes... Janelle & Chris.

Steph & Mike. Married.
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 3:56PM

 Magically avoiding horrible weather, a brisk late autumn day proved to be just right for Nebraska natives Steph & Mike on their triumphant return to Milwaukee and the Marcus, the spot they became engaged.. not before a trip to Menomonee Falls for formalities of course and a bus trip that transformed them from one of the most reserved wedding parties into the rowdy raunchy bunch that crushed what was probably the biggest party in M-town last night... as Mike so wisely remarked in relation to the evening's big surprise, "It's not a party til the wieners come out"... (he was, of course, talking about the Brewer's own famous racing sausages storming the dancefloor..probably only outdone on the dancefloor by Steph who is probably still dancing as I write this... what a dynamo)... Steph & Mike.

Rosie & Scott. Engaged.

 Rounding off the weekend with the lovely Rosie and Scott out in Pewaukee with another mercifully mild day's weather... perfect for plenty of climbing, sitting (and at times for me at least comfortable laying) and wading through nature.. after a little poop on the hand, a talk about how fostering kittens help you weed out the evil ones, a quick wardrobe change it was off up the hill to make sure got the industrial estate in a few shots, then down onto the frontage road with just enough cars passing by to ensure Rosie was completely freezing before wrapping up... Rosie & Scott.

Lauren & Steve. Engaged.
Monday, November 03, 2014 5:04PM

 A long-awaited trip out to Eagle for the gorgeous Lauren & Steve's engagement session...a new spot for me proved to be the perfect place for these guys (along with bodyguard Ben who sneaks in to one of the shots)...after crashing a couple of other photographers and climbing around the place, it was across the road for their beloved pooch's cameo and off into the autumn-sun drenched fields for some of my favourites of the season...and no, it wasn't done there... into the trucks to try and keep up with Lauren's driving to get to her one and only request of this whole wedding-photography deal.. some campfire shots...so after some sublime shoreline sunset pictures, Steve pulled out the gasoline and a solid ten minutes later we had ourselves a towering, raging inferno to roast stale marshmallows on.. perfect. Lauren & Steve.

Morgan & Coley. Engaged.
Monday, October 27, 2014 11:05AM

 The last stop on their Wisconsin Weekend tour saw Chicago-natives Morgan and Coley bring their brilliance to Milwaukee's Fifth Ward, starting off on Florida, we (or I) destroyed some of the carefully cultivated flora to kick off, before giving up on the slowest moving train in the world before finding an alley to hang out in, finding one of the most profound piece of graffito ever known to man or beast... minds blown and truly inspired, it was off to the Harley Davidson museum down the road for a quick tour of the grounds... lots of standing around in grass and up against walls before a quick nap on the grass...yep. Make Stuff. Words to live by Morgan & Coley. Engaged. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.
