As a gay man myself, there are many reasons why I love photographing same sex weddings. Firstly, the absence of pressure to conform to age-old traditions often allows for more creative and personalised approaches to the wedding day. I also love that photographing same sex couples makes it easier to break away from overused and generic wedding photographs that you often see time and again in straight weddings, and allows me to think outside the box a little.
More than anything, I love being a photographer in a time when love between two members of the same sex is legally recognised and increasingly viewed as a truly beautiful thing.
I hope that in no time at all, same sex weddings will be known simply as “weddings” and that the need to differentiate when talking about a gay wedding will become obsolete. However, I understand that currently there are still some challenges facing gay couples planning a wedding in what is still a very straight-orientated industry. Of course, having a wedding photographer who is gay themselves is not essential, but it does ensure that you can feel safe in the knowledge that they are 100% comfortable with public displays of affection and are passionate about documenting the biggest day of your life without any judgement or making certain assumptions about what is or isn't important to you.
So if you would like your same sex wedding day captured;
by a gay photographer that believes that your wedding day should be as unique and as individual as you are
naturally, in a manner that perfectly encapsulates your personalities and relationship
without the arrogance and ego of a photographer who makes the day all about them
in a stress-free, fun-filled way that incorporates your ideas and eliminates feelings of nerves and awkwardness
