Welcome to the blog of Steve Bowman Photography. Articles of dubious interest. Fingers crossed I remember to update.
Jaclyn & Nick. Married.
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 4:50PM

 You know it's going to be a good day when you roll up and Nick and the guys are in the church parking lot in beaters and ball shorts drinking beers already... and after a couple of hiccups including forgetting Jaclyn's bouquet at home, things finally kicked off and just kept getting better.. I managed to overcome some homesickness at the foggy bluffs (and more miraculously no one took a digger clambering over the rocks) before hitting up the bar as we continued on to the reception where the capacity of the Black Swan was tested and utterly defeated under the glory of J & N's fantastic friends and family.. the salubrity continued unabated culminating in one of the most contentious dancefloor tip cup battles i've ever seen... lives were nearly lost.. I almost checked the news this morning to make sure there weren't... many couples talk about what a party their wedding will be.. these guys actually were the real deal... Jaclyn & Nick.

Sabrina & Tyler. Engaged.

 Back to one of my favourite spots for the adorable Sabrina & Tyler who found that grocery store dance routines were no match for the infamous 'awkward ten minutes'.. despite this, they soon found their modelling-legs as we navigated nature, pointless bridges, bugs-in-the-eye and soggy cat-tail fields, and before long they were smouldering and climbing on each other in a rather fierce manner... stopping traffic while making out in the middle of the road, it was a long way from those first awkward ten minutes... and they weren't murdered and buried with a telescopic shovel either, so that's a plus... Sabrina & Tyler.

Chelsea & Ryan. Married.

 Last time we saw these guys they were climbing on old cars and barns with Dad driving the combine in the background... no combines this time as their awesome family & friends converged on Kewaskum for their nuptials and the after-party in Hartford... highlights from the day involved some emergency laundry on the grooms jacket, a sweaty stop in Richfield for some humid romance in the woods and a brief scream-a-thon during the reception as a bat decided to join the party (ably captured by some stud with a fishing net)...and a *lot* of well used drinking time... Chelsea & Ryan.

Denise & Peter. Married.
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 12:55PM

 Day Two of this weekend's double-header was back in Mil-town for Denise & Peter's out-of-state wedding... well, a destination wedding for almost everyone aside from them with their fabulous friends and family coming from all over the country for the party which kicked off at the epic Gesu... in between we kicked around the MU campus before a quick stop at the ever-fragrant Bradford beach to give the locals an epic display of rock climbing in dresses and straddling in tuxes... before ending up at the sumptuous Renaissance Place which might have broken the season record for the fastest filling dancefloor.. Denise & Peter.

Laura & Dustin. Married.
Tuesday, August 12, 2014 12:46PM

 California... Texas... West Bend. One of these is not like the other... because on Friday, only the WB hosted the kick-assery that was Laura and Dustin's wedding. Last seen in the woods of Richfield, I've been lucking to seeing these guys if only to see Dustin's modelling skills in action again, not to mention the gorgeous Laura. Apparently all Dustin needed however was to be surrounded by his buds and dressed up in his blues to see what he was really capable of... after the quaint church ceremony and a quick tour of the cemetery however it was off to the old courthouse for the party complete with line-dancing, which was way better than the usual Wisconsin-staple of the polka.. Laura & Dustin.

Jessica & Dennis. Engaged.

 On to the second shoot of the afternoon and up to Waukesha for Jessica & Dennis... thankfully we didn't reschedule based on the torrential down pour that never happened... starting off with a guest appearance from a rather dapper dog who took his modelling duties very seriously, he then watched his parents from a distance under guidance from Dennis' sister as we navigated the 'big hill', which is no mean feat at the best of times, least of all when recovering from a broken foot and torn toe ligaments.. however both of these guys were boot-free and more than happy to take the man-handling brief seriously... Jessica & Dennis.

Marisa & Mike. Engaged.
Tuesday, August 05, 2014 4:43PM

 Heading back to one of my favourite spots, the KM in Eagle (no sitting on a snake this time, just ants) with Marisa & Mike didn't have the most comfortable start trekking through the mosquito-infested forest, who only took a break in the blazing sun, but it's surprising how being incredibly itchy and sweaty can translate into a great session, much the same as Mike's reluctance to model immediately after a long car ride from up north can translate into some great images, but how comfortable these guys are together proved to be the thing that matters... Marisa & Mike.
