It's expected that you're friendly as a business owner. It's encouraged if you want to stay in business. Basically, the first thing my parents taught me was always to be kind. Yes, Brian, even to those who don't treat you kindly.
I'm a gay wedding photographer, and I firmly believe that beyond mere friendliness, we should all be doing our part to support the LGBTQ+ community. People often assume that because I work with same-sex couples, they don't need to think twice before making an offhand remark or asking invasive questions – but this isn't true. When someone is open-minded and genuinely supportive of my clients, it means so much to me and creates an atmosphere that is genuinely welcoming and affirming. With more empathy and understanding, we can move past ignorance and ensure everyone feels respected and celebrated on their big day.
At LGBTQ+ weddings, guests must demonstrate acceptance and solidarity by using empathetic language. Show your support with encouraging words like "congratulations," "blessings," or "happiness" - they can make all the difference in creating an environment where everyone feels valued and appreciated. Even a heartfelt hug is often seen as the highest form of respect and understanding at LGBTQ+ nuptials. So go ahead, bring your warmth and kindness to the festivities – it might be just the thing needed to ensure this special occasion is filled with joyous memories!
I've seen firsthand how love transcends all boundaries and can come in many forms.
My goal is to capture the unique, creative, funky, and giddy expressions of joy my clients let out when they see each other for the elation – these are all things that make my job so enjoyable. I feel privileged to be given a chance to document their union, which could have been only made possible through supportive state legislation, just another reason I'm a proud Vermonter.
Choosing me as your photographer is essential to the LGBTQ+ wedding experience because they are intimately familiar with what it takes to create and document these unique, memorable moments. A photographer who understands the struggles and triumphs of community involvement can make all the difference in capturing genuine, honest emotions that reflect a couple's connection. They also have access to resources and knowledge of subtle details, such as styling and venues that may cater to this specific demographic, which helps create stunning images tailored to their needs.
As Vermont Gay Wedding Photographer, I take pride in capturing each moment of my client's union in its beautiful complexity - ensuring every emotion and sentiment is accurately documented for years to come!
