"Capturing Love" Delivers Sage Same-Sex Wedding Photography Guidance

Same-sex wedding photography, which has been a very small niche market, has the potential to grow exponentially in the next decade and beyond. Consider that many of the couples first in line for their license have already been together for years and often decades. They may not splurge on all the lavish trappings that some young couples do, but they typically seek out good, professional photography to document their special day. They want a photographer who "gets" them, who understands just how much it means to them to be able to marry, and who knows that "square one is understanding that a one-size-fits-all approach to working with same-sex couples will not be effective."
