Sam & James { An Intimate Galena Wedding }

When Sam and James first contacted us to photograph their intimate Galena wedding, we knew immediately that they were the type of people we would love to work with!  They described a day that was all about their family and friends and joining their lives together.  Though they were having a ceremony at the courthouse in Galena, they really didn’t care too much about photos of the ceremony itself.  Instead, they wanted to make sure that there were photos of them with their loved ones and photos of the two of them around Galena.

We met up with Sam and James and their families while they were hanging out at Galena Cellars after the ceremony.  We took a few family photos and a few photos with Sam and James.  It was a beautiful day!  Isn’t this a fun looking group?
