Welcome to the blog of Steve Bowman Photography. Articles of dubious interest. Fingers crossed I remember to update.
Ellie & Travis. Married.

 Gosh, I could have shot these guys with a potato and they still would have looked gorgeous... after giving their planner a brief heart attack after showing up late to get strapped in, it was full steam ahead with some dubious suit options from the guys, and off to Gesu for the formalities with a stop for some kick-assery with their awesome bridal army in the Fifth Ward (complete with guys in lingerie and a rail track team) and photobombing a few other weddings while scaling the lakeshore rocks in heels and knickers/plus fours before ending up at the equally sumptuous Wisconsin Club for a party of epic proportions.. Ellie & Travis.

Lory & Kegan. Engaged.

 Off down the road to the second shoot of the evening to one of my favourite spots for the gorgeous Lory and Kegan where the conversation began with the bloating habits of vegetables and with Kegan's make up (the two were unrelated) then navigated around the beautiful National warehouse...climbed on a few loading docks, around semi-trailers, miniature and wire fences and avoided another shoot-in-progress before coming face-to-face with a questionable pack of Fifth Ward dogs including a really feisty little Maltese who wasn't the slightest bit impressed with what was going on... Lory & Kegan.

Ashley & Ross. Engaged.
Monday, July 14, 2014 4:44PM

 The first of a Fifth Ward double header kicked off with Ashley & Ross by the remainder of Tom Selek's head on a wall with the opening conversations covering everything from Blades of Glory to Moobs before wandering around the back of the warehouse through a wind tunnel to a spot that no longer exists.. not to be deterred, we found a loading dock and photo-bombed a rap video for 10 minutes, waited for a train that only teased before finishing off in a great alley way with a door 20ft off the ground... thank fully not long to wait to see these guys again... Ashley & Ross.

Sarah & Mike. Married.
Monday, July 14, 2014 4:39PM

 Kicking off downtown after colonizing a salon for themselves, Sarah threw on her dress and we headed off to the church with a quick stop off on the KK river parkway for a warp speed first look with Mike... jitters calmed, the church soon packed to capacity it was onwards and upwards to being married in Serbian Orthodox style... a extensively orchestrated family formals session later a trolley-ride back downtown for a session at the MAM where had every kind of weather in the space of 15 minutes before heading off to the reception with a few hundred of their nearest and dearest which made for possibly the fastest swarmed dancefloor in Wisconsin's history... Sarah & Mike.

Charidee & Rob. Engaged.
Monday, July 14, 2014 4:34PM

 Yet another reschedule foiled by the weather ended up for the best with glorious weather as Charidee and Rob made their modelling debut at one of my favourite local spots.. Rob's insomnia and Charidee's nerves proved less of a problem than the cloud of mosquitoes on the quick tour of the park, with a quick stop midway through for a grassy nap before ending up with a guest appearance of Dax who really didn't like the wide angle lens... Charidee & Rob. Engaged. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.

Sarah & Bryan. Received.

 Only a couple of weeks removed from their tropical destination wedding in Antigua with the folks, Sarah and Bryan once again found themselves gussied up and water-side, this time surrounded by friends and family who missed the nuptials and gathered on the shores of Lake Monona to celebrate... so it was full steam ahead with the dancing, cake, sliders and beer... thankfully enough lubrication with that amber nectar to take their final set of portraits in front of an audience waiting for the fireworks to get started... Sarah & Bryan. A Reception. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.

Lauren & Matt. Engaged.
Monday, June 30, 2014 5:05PM

 After a couple of weather-related scheduling issues, the latest and greatest installment from the Perry clan finally got off the ground on a very toasty afternoon in the Third Ward... mid-afternoon sun still didn't manage to outshine Lauren & Matt making their modelling debut with a little coaching on the side from cheerleader Lisa when she could take time away from sunning herself...happily we don't have to wait too long to see these guys again when the K-town crowd descends once again on Milwaukee in October.. Lauren & Matt. Engaged. from Steve Bowman on Vimeo.
