LGBTQ and Same Sex Wedding Photographer Portfolio
Same sex wedding photography is near and dear to my heart. As I write this, my partner Jessica and I are approaching our first wedding anniversary and our 15th anniversary as a couple (see our 12th anniversary blog post here)…. so you can understand why same sex marriage rights are important to us.
Over the past few years, I’ve had the honor of photographing many LGBTQ couples and families. Unfortunately, even in the much improved world we live in, these couples frequently need to ask me to not publish their images, like the couple who inspired me to write a blog post that went viral after I photographed their same sex engagement photography session. Actually, you may have already seen that blog post, because it was also featured on A Practical Wedding.
Sometimes the LGBTQ couples that are fortunate enough to have the freedom to allow me to publish their images decide to speak up for marriage rights. So I would encourage you to click on the links in the images and go read the stories of these beautiful couples and learn about Erin and Jen from their It Gets Better video by Nora McCormack from Softshell Productions. Or see what happens when Beka asks Kacey to marry her in their same sex marriage proposal in Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta.
And now, I should probably explain why it is important to label this page LGBTQ and same sex wedding photography instead of just wedding photography. Because I know you’re busy, I’ll be brief here and refer you to an article I wrote about being a same sex wedding photographer and the importance of using labels on the internet. But, the short version is that I label these images and label the weddings on my blog so that people who need a same sex wedding photographer can find me.
In these incredibly polarized times we live in, with same sex marriage on the news every night, shopping for a same sex wedding photographer or baker or caterer can be complicated and frustrating, and stressful. Really stressful. Which is why I’m making a special effort by creating this page to let other LGBTQ couples know I’m out here and that I want to be your same sex wedding photographer. So if you’re searching for a photographer for your wedding, I’d love to talk to you and learn more about your wedding plans. Just email me right now and let’s talk about your awesome wedding plans.
In the meantime, I’ll keep watching the news with a hopeful heart for the day that I can take this page down and they can all just be “weddings”. That day is closer than ever.
