Recently, B Creative Bridal, part of B Creative Talent, asked me to shoot advertising photos for the launch of their website. Because I was tasked with shooting a web commercial, lifestyle stills and beauty headshots of three different couples and one wedding party on location in the span of ten hours, I asked my friend Jeff Haynes to come and lend a hand. He shot the headshots, while I worked on the behind-the-scenes video and the lifestyle photos. Thank god he was there, because there was no way one person could shoot everything.
Not long ago, I had the privilege of shooting Bryan and Avery’s same-sex wedding. However, they called their union a cereversary because it coincided with their ten year anniversary.
A few months ago when civil unions became legal for gay and lesbian couples in Chicago, I decided to start offering my photography services for couples looking to get married. Below you can find photographs of the new sample wedding album I we put together to show just how we can capture these memories.
Over 30 same-sex couples tied the knot this morning in Chicago’s Millennium Park on the first day for civil unions in Illinois.
