Are you looking for a LGBTQ friendly wedding photographer?
I photographed my first same sex union back in 2013, when civil partnerships were the only legal standing a same-sex couple could hold. I remember feeling immensely grateful to Kate and Camilla as they’d given me an opportunity to be a part of their celebrations and they’d taken a chance on working with me, even though I had no evidence of previous work as an LGBTQ friendly wedding photographer and I didn’t have LGBTQ+ couples in my portfolio at that point.
What I did have, though, was a stated commitment to equality and working with diverse couples, along with gender-neutral language across all of my communications which was, at that time, not as common as you’d hope.
I remember feeling very, very emotional at Kate and Camilla’s wedding speeches, when they talked about their feelings of immense privilege because they were able to celebrate their relationship when so many LGBTQ people around the world are oppressed or unable to be open about their relationships.
I also appreciate that not every union falls within the “wedding” category so if you’re planning some other kind of celebration of your love then I’d love to be a part of that too.
