Tom and Jake’s wedding was so emotional and fun! Two cool things: 1) I have known Tom since he was..hmmmm..8! His older sister is my best friend from childhood.  2) This wedding happened about one week after they legalized gay marriage in Colorado.  Yay! The first offically legal gay wedding that I have had the honor to photograph. It was beautiful in every way.

The moment I will remember the most from Courtney and Amy’s wedding was the toast give by Courtney’s father.  He had the whole house crying as far as I could tell.  He talked about the significance of his daughter being able to marry the women she loved.  In front of family and friends.  And in accordance with the law.  He talked about how society evolves and he recalled a time when his new bride couldn’t apply for her own credit card.  And a time when a black person couldn’t chose to legally marry a white person.  Change.  It’s hard for humans.  But, I am proud to be a person who with an open heart welcomes the opportunity to photograph weddings of any kind.  Love is love is love is love.  And where would we be without love?
