Georgetown Fair Queen: Contestant Info Meeting for 2015 Pageant to be held June 27

As the official photographers of the Georgetown Fair Queen we've been having a great time with Miss Georgetown Fair 2014 Desiree Bainbridge, and with summer right around the corner it won't be long until Desiree crowns the 2015 fair queen in August.

Think you've got what it takes to do Desiree's job? We're looking forward to meeting all the contestants on June 27th at the Georgetown Fairgrounds. The June 27th meeting is an informational meeting where pageant directors Jill Pope and Karen Thornsbrough will talk about everything they have planned for this year's pageant, plus you'll get to hear from Queen Desiree and find out exactly what it takes to do the job of one of the busiest fair queens in Illinois. Visit the Georgetown Fair Queen website and be sure to RSVP and let the directors know that you plan to be there on June 27th.

In addition to doing a lot of appearances and engagement activities in the community, the Georgetown Fair Queen spends a lot of time in front of the camera. You might remember the farm portraits we did with 2013 Queen Danielle, or those really cool pictures we did with Queen Alex when we were hunting for a queen. The pictures in this post are previews from our spring promo shoot where we did pictures of Queen Desiree and her safari pageant theme. We can't wait to see how the pageant comes together in August, but until then these pictures give you a hint of what Queen Desiree and the pageant crew might have in mind.

From her trip to the state pageant in Springfield to the annual princess luncheon, the Georgetown Fair Queen spends her year actively engaged in the community, and we are right by her side to photograph those moments. Being the Georgetown Fair Queen truly is an experience of a lifetime. We can't wait to meet all the contestants, so be sure to say hi when you see Josh and Joe Travels!
