Second Anniversary ~ LGBTQ Friendly Photographers in Indiana

An important anniversary is coming up.  It’s the date that Indiana FINALLY legalized same-sex marriage in our state.  It was a long time coming, and contentious, as it has been in most states, but the day finally came.  On that very day in my world, Gary and Todd ran down to the courthouse and tied the knot.  They posted on Facebook that they were finally legal after many many (many) years together.  It meant the world to them, and to everyone who felt that this was only fair and just.  I contacted them immediately and offered to do portraits of them at the house to honor their union.  I am so glad they accepted.

Since that time, Jeffrey and I have gotten married, and I have been reminded again how deep that joy goes.  It’s a privilege we have, but it’s also a right.  A right our grandparents had, and our parents….but not many of our friends.  My best friend Kirk left this earth in the 90s without the right (OR the privilege) to join his life with his life partner.  It was something he wanted so badly, and had it happened, his partner would have been cared for in an entirely different way afterward.

Honey needed a portrait, too!

 

So on October 6th, we say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to all the couples who have been able to legalize their partnership, and celebrate their love openly as a result of this newfound freedom.  It was long overdue.

We are proudly gay LGBTQ friendly photographers, and we have been since day ONE.

This was my first time dealing with camouflage, and long guns at a wedding, but it was really cool.  A whole different vibe from what I’ve been dealing with lately, and I loved it.  It was a day filled with moonshine,  dancing to ALL kinds of music,  armed groomsmen (and groom), cowboy hats as guestbooks, and family and friendship as tight knit as I’ve ever seen.fort wayne wedding details

I hadn’t ever met the bride and groom, and they had found me through an online bridal group.  When I got there and saw how gorgeous they both are, you can imagine my elation.  That, and the fact that this couple’s love is so warm, comfortable, and evident to all around them that the photos flowed with an ease.  I enjoyed this project more than I have in a very long time.indiana cowboy wedding
