SAME-SEX WEDDING, GAY WEDDING AND LESBIAN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WITH ALL THE EMOTION YOUR LOVE STORY DESERVES
Emotional wedding photography is more about what you feel, the happiness of the day and what it's really important. It's not about posing, it's not about disrupting the natural flow of your gay wedding... mainly, it's about LOVE above all.
It's not a secret, I'm gay myself. I've been together with my partner for more than 12 years and each day I'm thankful for that. If I were getting married and looking for a gay wedding photographer the first thing I would ask would be for him or her to be obviously comfortable with the situation. Let's face it, even though we have come far with the LGTB situation we're still facing difficulties even today. I'm not gonna lie, I had to delete some hate comments on my social media for showing and sharing some of my gay, lesbian and same-sex weddings and engagements.
Also, I would look for somebody who understands LOVE, and especially gay love... you know, I don't really like making distinctions between my straight and gay weddings... to me, a love story is a love story, no matter if your gay, straight, lesbian, transexual etc... LOVE is LOVE. I've seen a lot during my same-sex weddings... families who respect and embrace the union of the couple and families who opposed but were there for their children because, in the end, they love their sons or daughters. Also, couples who got married without their parents being there during their wedding day simply because the relationship ended just because they couldn't accept... and that's really tough. Fortunately, those situations are nowadays very rare, but they still happen.
CANDID GAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
To me, capturing the same-sex wedding in the most organic and natural way is very important. I want to capture the gay wedding as it was but with a creative and artistic approach. If you're looking for a traditional wedding photographer and lots of posed photos I'm afraid we're not gonna be a good match. I do prefer a more natural style because it's way easier for the couple. You can enjoy your wedding day without having to worry about the photographer and what he's or she's doing... trust is key between the photographer and the gay couple. And to achieve trust, I've got the perfect solution which works every time: The Engagement Sessions. After you see how the experience with me during the engagement session works, you're gonna forget about me during your wedding day and you're not gonna be aware that I'm taking pictures with my camera. That's my main goal if you're not aware of me and you see me as another guest on your wedding day we've definitely achieve it!
GAY & SAME-SEX ENGAGEMENTS
An engagement session is always included in all my wedding photography packages, or what I like to call them: Experiences. The engagement session is also mandatory as is the key to success in my opinion. Why? Well, because this is probably the first time you're gonna be in front of a professional camera and obviously working with me...
First, you need you choose a special location for you both. For example, the place where you met for the first time, the place where you had your first date, the place where you had your first kiss or just a place that you love to go together. The location has to have a meaning for you both because then when you see your engagement photos they're gonna be even more special for you both.
Then, you have to be aware that I only do engagement session during sunset. The colour of the light during sunsets is perfect for a romantic mood and if you had a look at my wedding photos you know what I'm talking about. Those golden colours are perfect for the most romantic moments on earth.
The way I do engagement session is quite easy for the couple. We will have a walk at your chosen location and when I see something that I know it would work I tell you to stay there with your partner and talk to each other about anything... no more directions, no poses, nothing else!. And that's when the magic happens! Obviously, the first 30 minutes are awkward because is like "we're talking here and this guy is taking pictures"... but I promise, after that, you forget about it and you begin to enjoy it. It happens to every couple!
When you see your engagement photos for the first time and you fall in love with them, you trust me completely and during you're wedding day you're gonna forget about me completely... that's exactly what I want!

SAME-SEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN HAMPSHIRE
Yeah, I have to admit it. I love to create stunning wedding photography in Hampshire's countryside! Places like Hart, Winchester, Southampton, Portsmouth, New Forest, Gosport, Waterlooville, Farnborough, Fareham, Portchester, Eastleigh, Andover, Havant, Fleet, Hook, Petersfield, Hartley Wintney, Camberley and Basingstoke. Hampshire has stunning wedding venues such as The Four Seasons in Dogmersfield (this one is breathtaking) or The Elvetham, between Hartley Witney and Fleet which I love.
I live in Basingstoke, Hampshire, where I meet with my couples to talk about their LOVE story, who they are and what makes them tick and also their wedding day 😄. Consultations are very very important for me (and for you both) because you will instantly know if I'm the right same-sex wedding photographer for you and also I will know if you're my type of couple. What do I mean with that? Well, if you're looking for a standard wedding photographer I can tell you right now that I'm not your guy. I put all my passion, my love and my creativity in what I do. The best compliment I receive after every wedding is not the lovely words about my images from the couples, the family and the guests. The best compliment is to see tears of happiness when my couples see their slideshow for the very fist time on their viewing appointment. Actually, the last couple asked me to see their slideshow again and again, I think we saw it like 10 times in a row! That's the best compliment ever and that's the reason I do what I do.
If you're thinking about booking me for your gay wedding take a look at my engagement sessions, or check my beautiful wedding albums. Engagement sessions and Queensberry Albums are included in all the experiences. If you want to learn more about my experiences check then on the packages page.
My couples usually book me a year and a half before their wedding day, so keep in mind that my calendar looks daunting sometimes. So please, don't wait too much, get in touch or go ahead and book your free consultation.
