Same sex wedding

After all this time? – Always.

Don’t know if there’s some more Potterheads out there or not (if you never read Harry Potter we can’t be friends), but this was how Dana ended her beautiful vows. After get to know each other in the city of New York, they started dating and love happened so fast and so intensely between these two amazing souls. I used to make fun with Michelle (we were already ‘Instagram friends’ before filming their wedding) asking her when she was going to get married in New York because I wanted to go back there again to shoot another wedding.

After a couple of months living there, she texted me asking if I was free for her wedding – of course I am!! She told me how she met Dana and how her life was when they were living in New York City. I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding, specially because I love filming same sex weddings!

My personal experiences of a beautiful same-sex wedding in as a videographer

All about love

Let’s start with this amazing pre wedding shoot we did on two distinct locations. We started this by the river and ended up by the sea to shoot during blue hour. I don’t do these kind of shoots so often but the creative freedom I can have doing this is absolutely amazing. We can create so many beautiful images enjoying the sunset and the time immediately after.

I’ve said this many times, and I don’t know why, but I do feel that gay couples’s love is more intense. They live fully, and tend to enjoy the simple things that surround them. Being a wedding videographer is amazing but when I have the chance to film this kind of love (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual, non-binary, pansexual or other) it makes my heart full. I do feel that there’s some kindness in the world and I’m making something right.

Love is Love – The Beauty of Celebrating Your Same-Sex Wedding

Love knows no boundaries, and nowhere is this more evident than in the celebration of same-sex weddings. In a world where love is the guiding force, these unions stand as a testament to the triumph of authenticity and acceptance. Each same-sex wedding is a beautiful tapestry woven with the threads of courage, commitment, and unwavering love. From the tender exchange of vows to the joyous festivities shared among friends and family, these weddings radiate with a sense of liberation and equality. As society progresses towards greater inclusivity, same-sex weddings serve as beacons of hope, reminding us that love is boundless and that every individual deserves the right to express it freely and without fear.

In celebrating these unions, we celebrate love in its purest form, igniting a path towards a more compassionate and inclusive future for all. I’m really happy when I film these weddings, and I’m here to tell you that this is a safe place. I’d love to tell your story!

Walk down the aisle and focus on what matters most

In the midst of all the planning and excitement, remember to prioritize what truly matters – your commitment to each other. Keep the focus on the love and connection you share, rather than getting caught up in the details or potential challenges. Stay grounded in your relationship and cherish the journey towards saying “I do” surrounded by those who love and support you.

And one thing I do love about same-sex weddings is that we jump so many traditions and myths to make the day more personal, more you:

Many same-sex couples choose to get ready together on their wedding day, sharing in the anticipation and excitement as they prepare to exchange vows. This intimate time allows for special moments of connection and reflection before the ceremony begins.

Your same-sex marriage

Same-sex marriage represents a profound milestone in the ongoing journey towards equality and acceptance. It is a declaration that love knows no gender, that the bond between two individuals transcends societal norms and prejudices. Same-sex marriage signifies the triumph of love over discrimination, of authenticity over conformity. It is a celebration of the fundamental right of every person to love and be loved, to commit to a lifelong partnership regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. Each same-sex marriage ceremony is a testament to the resilience and strength of the LGBTQ+ community, a reaffirmation of their inherent dignity and worth. As we continue to strive for a more just and inclusive society, same-sex marriage stands as a beacon of hope, inspiring us to embrace diversity and honor the love that unites us all.

I can definitely say that I would love to shoot some more same-sex weddings, so if you and your partner think we can be a match, please feel free to reach out and let’s make it happen. I cannot stress enough how much I love the freedom on these weddings, and I do love having fun with you all!

It’s good to know I am not alone on this matter, and it’s good to see good friends and excellent professionals thinking the same. Feel free to check photographer Sandy Alonso blog post about same-sex weddings. You got this! Love is love!

We would love to be with you during your wedding day.
