Why did you choose to use an LGBTQAI+ couple for the shoot? What significance did it have?
I have been photographing weddings for 5 years. I have noticed a smaller percentage of LGBTQAI+ male representation in modern wedding magazines or blogs. I wanted to create a styled shoot to highlight LGBTQAI+ males in love.
Have you worked with LGBTQAI+ couples prior to this?
Did you learn anything new from working on this shoot?
In Spring 2019, I wanted to make sure I was doing all that I could to be inclusive and show diversity in my wedding business from my images, website, marketing materials, questionnaires, using proper verbiage, etc. As a lifelong learner, I received certifications from: Equality Institute (LGBT+ Weddings) and Equally Wed Pro’s (LGBT Inclusive) programs. I wanted to be the vendor that my clients can feel comfortable and know that I am an ally.
Anything else you’d like to add?
It is my goal to increase LGBTQAI+ wedding client representation on my website and mainstream wedding marketing. If you like my work, let’s talk about your special day and how we can work together! I will travel!
