As a wedding photographer, it is both an honor and a privilege to capture the special moments of the best day of a couple’s life. Photographing the love shared between couples—no matter their genders, brings me such joy. I’m photographing more and more LGBTQ weddings in Michigan, Florida and all around the world. Love is beautiful, and it makes me happy to capture it as an LGBTQ wedding photographer.
I am so pleased to share that two of the LGBTQ weddings I photographed were published over the summer. It warms my heart to know that the love stories of these wonderful couples can be shared, embraced and enjoyed. It was such a pleasure to be their wedding photographer, but knowing that these images are published is an even greater honor. Read on to learn more about these two LGBTQ weddings published during Pride in June!
Todd & Scott’s Station House Wedding | Florida LGBTQ Wedding Photography
Todd and Scott were married on January 27, 2019, at the quirky and eclectic Station House in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was such an honor being their same sex wedding photographer for this dramatic wedding filled with personalized details. The rich, dramatic details of the Station House were the perfect backdrop for this celebration of love. Todd and Scott have a very photogenic Boston terrier named Bansky. He was dressed for the occasion with his own tiny bow tie.
Even rain couldn’t dampen their spirits! In fact, the rainy wedding weather resulted in some of my favorite photos of their wedding day. To see more of Todd and Scott’s amazing details, read their feature in Gay Weddings and Marriage Magazine (pages 40-43). Some of my personal favorites from their wedding day are shared here, below:
During Todd and Scott’s cocktail hour, they had Hyppo (a local St Pete company) create Champagne Pops by taking their signature popsicles and serving them in a glass of champagne. So AMAZING!
Amy & Grace’s Lesbian Wedding | Destination LGBTQ Wedding Photography
Amy and Grace were married on August 7, 2016 in a beachfront ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the Malibu West Beach Club in Malibu, California. The stunning colors of the sand, sky, and sea provided a gorgeous backdrop for their Jewish ceremony. Amy and Grace wanted to celebrate their love by choosing female wedding vendors from their community. Author and lesbian Jewish activist, Rabbi Lisa Edwards, officiated the ceremony. Award-winning singer/songwriter Jennifer Corday, who was recently featured in the national ‘Ride with Pride’ UBER commercial, provided the entertainment at the reception, making their day even more meaningful and memorable. Please read about their wedding in the Real Weddings section of the Let’s Bee Together blog and enjoy some of my favorite wedding photos of their day below:
LGBTQ Friendly Photographer
I am a proud ally of the LGBTQ community. This past June, I joined more than 250,000 people in the St. Pete Pride Celebration. The St. Pete Pride Celebration is the largest Pride celebration in Florida, and it’s one of the oldest in the country! 2019 was the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, so it was especially meaningful for me to be there this year to lend my support to this open and loving community.
Although I am based in Michigan and Florida, I have traveled all over the world to photograph weddings of all shapes and sizes for couples of all genders. Large weddings, Small weddings, Hetero weddings, LGBTQ Weddings, you name it. My goal and my mission is for my photography to reflect the soul of each couple. I am grateful when I have the opportunity to share the images of my wonderful couples and their wedding days.
I consider myself a bit of a gypsy, so whether you’re looking for LGBTQ wedding photographers in California, Florida, Michigan, or anywhere in the world… I would be honored to be yours.
