Living in the Shadows

I had the great pleasure and honor of photographing a same-gender wedding yesterday. There were many, many beautiful and loving moments that I was able to document for the couple. Those photos will appear on this blog in the coming days. Unfortunately, in this country and in others–this kind of celebration of the marriage of two people that have a commitment as strong as any other and as real as anything you’ve ever felt–by some people, is not honored and often times strongly condemned.  Many of these couples and their relationships live in the shadows. I took this one photo yesterday to represent an enormous segment of the population that live and feel this way– unable to be completely out in the open and with equal rights. Fortunately, the lovely couple does push against this darkness and make their best efforts to live together as fully in the light as they can. The rest of the photos I will share will be that–the openness in which they live–with full light on them. And that is how it should be for all. (Please feel free to share to help bring everyone into the light).
