being a gay wedding photographer in new york
When I started photographing weddings in 2009, the question of whether to be out as a wedding photographer was still a scary proposition. Wedding photographers everywhere were discussing the merits and pitfalls of showing gay couples in a wedding photographer’s portfolio.
When I met Dana and Cynthia at my studio in 2009, to discuss their wedding plans, I knew that I had no choice but to leap forward and create a business that not only embraced same sex weddings, but actively promoted gay weddings as a speciality. I was incredibly proud to show Dana and Cynthia’s amazing wedding in my portfolio.
New York, of course, did pass the Marriage Equality Act. I am so pleased that a huge portion of my business comes from Gay and Lesbian clients. I love that my straight clients love photos of my gay couples and vice-versa. What they all see in the images is love, family and authenticity. I am so moved when I find out that clients have hired me because they have a gay parent, or a gay sister or a transgendered relative.
I am often asked if photographing gay weddings is different than photographing straight weddings. The answer is not really. Yes, there may be some minor differences, and yes, you absolutely cannot assume anything about the traditions of the day… But, hey, I don’t do that with ANY OF MY COUPLES. My couples tend to be independent thinkers. Original, one of a kind weddings are my thing, gay or straight.
Weddings are about love and I cannot imagine not photographing a wedding because of who someone loves. I just can’t.
In 2013, I married my partner of 20 years. Our families came to celebrate with us and it was truly an amazing day.
