I received my copy of Capturing Love today, and after eagerly reading it all the way through standing in my living room, I just held it in my arms and cried. It is so beautiful. In every one of those authentic, intimate and believable images, I see the same love I experience in the wide range of gay weddings I have the honor to officiate. This book is not only a tribute to the universality of two people loving one another, committing to one another and celebrating it, but shows LGBT couples a deep level of respect—an imperative to those supporting them to understand and truly see them and the unique journey they are on, and to recognize our responsibility to bring our professionalism to them fully. In any wedding, gay or straight, it is the paying attention to the uniqueness of the couple and respectfully telling their story which makes the event meaningful and memorable – an experience that touches and transforms. With this book, you indeed ‘help to inspire and expand the market’s readiness to better accept and serve same-sex couples.’ Capturing Love is an essential tool for same-sex wedding photographers, but it is a gift for all of us. I am so proud to be in this world with you, and grateful for your insight and vision.
