In 2012 Washington State became the 7th state to recognize marriage equality, and to allow same-sex couples to enjoy the same right to marriage previously reserved only for heterosexual couples. No more "commitment ceremonies", finally everyone is able to get married! This is an exciting time in Washington State and will hopefully help lead the citizens of other states to make the same decision to enact marriage equality as well.
Since the passage of Marriage Equality in Washington State, Seattle has become a "destination wedding" location for same-sex couples from all over the country and the world. In addition to being the photographer at the weddings of numerous Seattle area gay and lesbian couples, I have been honored to be the Seattle wedding photographer for same-sex couples from several different states within the US, as well as to same-sex couples from as far away as England and New Zealand.
Now of course, after the recent ruling by the US Supreme Court, Marriage Equality is the law of the land. I will watch with great interest to see how this affects the attitudes toward same-sex marriage in other countries. While I fear that we are still a long way from universal recogniiton of Marriage Equality, at least the United States have tried to sjow others the way.

I am an equal rights wedding photographer. I don't care what your sexual orientation is, I just love taking pictures at weddings. Being a wedding photographer for ANY couple is a great privilege and responsibility, as I am allowed to record the images of one of the most important and intimate days of their lives. I would love to talk with you about your wedding plans and what you would like for your photography on this special day, and would be honored if you decide that I am the person you want to document this event.
